Here are a few weekend photos from the iPhone.
Friday evening I swung by Erin McDermott’s house to pick up some holiday gifts and ended up wearing this buddha necklace home. I seriously just love everything she makes and she is truly one of the sweetest and most thoughtful women ever.
Bathroom tub remodel. I had the tub and the tile stripped and resurfaced. It’s so fresh, clean and white now. Love my little black and white bathroom.
I saw Dallas Buyers Club which was so heavy but beautifully done. The movie is based on the true story of a Texas man who was diagnosed with AIDS in the 80s and worked around the system to get himself and others the treatment that they needed. The storytelling in the film was great. The acting by Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey was amazing and the transformations they had to make physically to play the roles was insane. It’s definitely one of those movies that sticks with you after you watch it.
Does it get any better than good bread dipped in good olive oil and balsamic and good wine?
I had wine and small plates at Good Food On Montford. I tried two dishes that I have never had there before. The first was the Bun which is five spice rubbed pork belly, hoisin and pickled vegetables. It’s one of the things they are known for and it certainly lived up to the hype. It was melt in your mouth good.
The second thing I tried was the Korean Beef over crispy rice. Also outstanding.
Finished it up with spiced apple cake with salted caramel ice cream.
Sunday afternoon baking in prep for Christmas was a little crazy. I made chewy molasses cookies, chocolate chip walnut banana bread, chocolate dipped macaroons, white chocolate and cranberry macaroons and cinnamon crunch toffee and chocolate bark. I’ll also be baking a key lime pie.
And this isn’t technically from the weekend but it’s too cute not to share. Goofy Sullie with a stuffed bunny on her head and not caring one bit about it. She’s the cutest! 🙂
Have you done any holiday baking? What have you made?
