How does every week seem to fly by so quickly? I swear it was just Sunday night and I was getting ready for the week ahead. Anyway,s I feel like I had a productive week, so that definitely feels good.
Tuesdays are my long days at work. By the time I was done I was in no mood to make something to eat, so I ended up going out. We decided on a really great Mexican restaurant that I hadn’t been to in awhile. They have amazing margaritas, so of course I had to have one. I ordered beef fajitas that were also pretty tasty. If you’re in Calgary you have to go to Salt and Pepper.
I’ve been showing my dad how to use Facebook. Although he had some of the basics down, I helped him figure out a few other things that he wasn’t sure of. He’s even up to 5 or 6 friends now! He got his first comment on a photo that he’d added so he though that was pretty cool.
I’ve been a part of the Gastropost community for a few months now. In conjunction with the Calgary Herald, every week gastroposters receive an email with their mission for the week. This last week was “the perfect potato”. I spent a few days thinking about it and I finally decided on making potato skins. After a trip to the grocery store to pick up a few ingredients that I didn’t have, I got to work cooking. They ended up turning out really great. You can find the recipe I used here from The Brown Eyed Baker. My photo ended up being picked so it was featured in the Calgary Herald on Wednesday.
I also spent some time starting some seeds indoors. While we’re still months away from being able to plant most things outside (Calgary’s last frost date isn’t until the end of May), I wanted to get a head start on some of my favorite veggies. I planted mostly tomatoes, with a few zucchinis and a butternut squash. After a quick trip outside to be watered, they’re ready to go. The zucchinis and squash will be the first to germinate, so I’m looking forward to seeing them pop up in a week or so. The tomatoes will take a few more days to appear. Check out this post for how I do my seed starting.
At the moment I don’t have much planned for the weened, and that’s perfectly alright with me. I have plans to get together with a few other ladies for some crafting Sunday afternoon, but that’s it.
Leave me a comment with a highlight from your week.
