This was a good weekend full of friends, downtime, puppy love, yoga and cooking. All of my favorite things.
I stayed in on Friday night and cooked dinner. I had some beautiful salmon but wanted to try a new method of preparing it. I browsed through some cookbooks and then remembered I had Pinned a recipe for Sriracha and lime salmon forever ago. I kind of glanced at the recipe and then winged it based on what I had on hand. It was quick and simple to prepare and turned out really delicious – spicy and super flavorful. I will definitely be making this over and over again.
I was up bright and early Saturday for a yoga class but my body was super sore and tight as a result of a massage I had on Friday so I took it easy. I headed over to our new studio space that’s under construction after class for a quick photo shoot with Wanda Koch. How fun to backbend and handstand on piles of drywall. The new studio is going to be amazing and I can’t wait for it to open soon!
Lunch after photos was homemade tomato soup and a sandwich with deli chicken, avocado, white cheddar and tomato on wheat. I blogged about this soup earlier this week but it’s so good! It almost tastes like a caramelized onion, balsamic tomato soup. Love it. I’ll try to recreate and post the recipe.
I ran errands after lunch and sported a new infinity scarf. I didn’t take this thing off all day Saturday.
I stopped by Whole Foods to pick up some ingredients for a recipe I was developing and testing and was excited to find that they were tasting $40-$50 bottles of wine and champagne along with cheese and chocolate. My lucky day. These two Italian wines were my favorite that I tasted. I really want to learn more about old world wines because I definitely enjoy them.
I came home from errands and took advantage of the last hour of daylight and took Sullie for a long walk. When we came back she had so much fun rolling around in the leaf piles that were blown in the back yard. Her fun, sweet and playful personality never ceases to make me smile.
Speaking of wine…I went out with a group of friends to Dean & Deluca wine bar last night. This red blend was really great.
And my dinner was seared scallops with lentil salad and citrus beurre blanc. While it tasted amazing, I was starving when I left so I made a grilled cheese when I got home! 🙂
Are you a wine lover? Red or white? And what type?
Have you ever made a second dinner when you got home from a restaurant?
