eat/make/do : Obsessed
I’m officially on the spiralizer train (check out my zoodles – zucchini noodles above). I got one 50% off at the Williams Sonoma outlet in GA (a Paderno) on our weekend away about a month ago, and I’ve been using it constantly. I’ve been using the blog Inspiralized as inspiration, and I’m drooling over this salad.
Can I please be a professional grocery shopper (a la #6)? I love grocery shopping. I even “window shop” at grocery stores. I recently had a off and spent most of it perusing Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s with a friend buying cool products that I can’t get at Kroger. I’m a total sucker for great packaging. Grocery shopping fulfills the “retail therapy” need for me just like buying shoes does for other women. I hope my husband is thankful for this. Also, you all just found out I’m weird. Oops.
I need to make homemade marshmallows STAT! I’m not sure I can do the whole candy thermometer thing though. So much pressure! How cute is that mold though? It might be a must-have! (Please note the people in the comments asking what to do with leftovers – hello, eat them!)
I loved this post on arranging super market flowers. I could probably do a whole post of my own since this is one of my favorite weekly rituals (getting them on sale from the discount bin!). Until then, Cup of Jo has a great guide!
I loved this post about summer sympathy meals (a great follow up to my series on the topic). I recently prepped this vegan lentil tacos from Oh She Glows for a great friend in her final months of an intensive post-grad program. I did the lentil filling, peppers and onions, and the lettuce wraps, and it was an easy way to pull off a meal (easy to prepare and easy to transport).
Have a great week!
