Industrious Weekend

I'm trying to get back into the swing of things even though I'm not in my own home with my own kitchen.    This weekend I hit up the farmer's market  and bought lots of delicious things.
 Including beautiful flowers.
And way more strawberries than I needed.  I planned to make jam, but I didn't know how many strawberries I'd really need.  I would have been fine with half as much.
 For dinner I ate this arugula, fava bean and mint salad.
It was a quick healthy meal while I made this.  I'm not sure it set up as thickly as it should have.  May be more like strawberry sauce than jam.  Oh well, it'll be delicious.
I also accomplished one of my resolutions for the year... making sourdough english muffins from scratch.  They were pretty easy.

 And I made fresh strawberry pies to use up the remaining berries.  Lucky co-workers tomorrow.

It was a good weekend.  How was yours?


  1. Everything you made looks DELICIOUS! And those are some beautiful strawberries!

  2. Oh wow! Looks amazing! I also had a great weekend [scored a Saarinen table thrift]. Those strawberries look so good, I'm sure I'd get an aching stomach before I could stop eating them!

  3. Oh my GOD those pies look amazing! And the muffins look fab as well.

  4. Look at all that green goodness (and the english muffins!) looks like the perfect way to spend a weekend.
