Friday Instagram Round-Up 7

I am so ready for the weekend, how about you?  Shawn and I got a Blu-ray/DVD/Streaming Netflix device for our birthdays, so this past week has been a blur of work, cooking and Arrested Development episodes (SOOOO good).  Plus, a little time for Instagram.

Working from home because of the BART strike.  Nice to final put that office to use after a year.

Leftovers from dinner the night before resulted in this breakfast delight: herb and mashed potato omelette.

Emily and I threw a girl’s cocktail party with small bites; super fun!

Quick dinner: dry rubbed roasted pork, peach and basil yogurt wrap.  So, so good.

Have a great weekend!

 

Friday Instagram Round-Up 6

Oh, Friday. You know what that means…Instagram round-up! And weekend. Oh, I love me the weekend. The weather has been so beautiful lately here, I can’t wait to get out in the sunshine. Our yard is definitely in need of some de-winterizing (i.e., get rid off all the brown), but we already have blossoms on the plum tree and jasmine bushes. The jasmine smell in the morning is enchanting; great way to wake up. I also have a Prohibition-themed birthday party for some friends this weekend… Post to follow next week!

In the meantime, let’s get to Instagramming, shall we?

Celeriac and artichoke heart soup with some crusty bread. Perfect winter to spring transition dinner.

Reinventing the wheel, or rather, the rice bowl; broiled salmon and steamed asparagus over rainbow quinoa.

Dinner at The Vine, a wine & tapas bar in San Leandro. Those beans are ridic.

Avocado-chocolate mousse, recipe courtesy of A Cozy Kitchen. Super creamy and rich. You must make this.

The little things in life: opening up my dictionary at work to the EXACT page I needed. I may have squealed in excitement.

Fried brown rice, roasted pork tenderloin and soft boiled egg yolk. Delish.
