Weekend in Pictures

Vegans beware!  Love the smoker outside of my fave new BBQ joint, Crown Q.

made a giant vat of minestrone on the slow cooker this weekend, using sweet potatoes instead of baby reds and swiss chard instead of spinach. Vegan, Gluten Free, and TASTY!!!!  Perfect for the chilly weather that is beginning to set in as we near the end of autumn.

Holy cow.  My friend and I saw About Time this weekend and it's one of the best movies I've seen in many years. The previews make it look like a silly rom-com but it is SO much more than that, with understated performances by Bill Nighy and Rachel McAdams, and an overall stellar cast from the stars to the supporting players.  Every emotion, with nothing predictable in the storyline that you're used to at most movies these days.  Two thumbs way up.

Contemplation over words.
Contemplation, this is what I see one afternoon.
Love this new Belkin Conserve Socket which allows you to plug in your cell phone or laptop charger on a timer so you don't have to forget to unplug it every time!

Also splurged on my first new clock in 20 years (I seriously have had the same one since college that I got at Linens 'n' Things). This Resource Revival clock is made from recycled bike parts. Rad.

And love to see all my fava bean cover crop coming up in the old tomato beds! Trying this instead of crimson clover - will report back after the first of the year with an update!

  1. Thanks for the slow-cooker reminder, I always forget that is an option. Great meal for my daughter to make this week! And, although I don’t eat meat, that smoker is great- what a fun idea. 🙂
