I am a wedding cake crasher.
I can’t stop laughing at this photo from my sisters wedding. They almost left without digging into their cake! Can you believe that? I had my eye on it all afternoon and was anxiously anticipating the cake cutting moment. I wasn’t about to let it go uneaten. After I (impatiently) waited for the bride and groom to share their first slice , I barged onto the scene and dug in. I overheard one of the wedding photographers saying, “I don’t understand what’s happening here….” It was lemon cream, by the way.
I can’t wait to invite myself over to my sister and brother in-laws house on their one year anniversary to share the leftovers.
Sunday: Happy Canada Day! We’re celebrating with a bbq. Bison Tenderloin, Stuffed Southwestern Yams, Corn Muffins (I’m going to try and recreate the amazing corn muffin I had at Mesa Grill last weekend)
Look at the innards of the muffin. Blue corn swirls, corn, finely diced peppers – slightly spicy mixed with subtly sweet. Mind blowing.
Monday: Shrimp Lettuce Wraps (Romaine Leaves or Chard work best)
Tuesday: Tempeh Burgers, Roasted Yam Fries, Fresh Garden Greens
Wednesday: Cake? Sushi? Mexican food? Who knows, but it’s my birthday!
Thursday: Baked Wild Salmon, Asparagus, Quinoa or Rice
Friday: BBQ Honey Mustard Chicken Breast, greens from our garden
Saturday: leftovers/wing it
Sunday: Vegetable & Edamame Salad with Basil Cream Sauce <– One of my favorite summer dishes. It tastes great hot or cold.
How are you celebrating the holiday weekend?
I’m going to be here – admiring and eating my greens.
Do you grow a garden?
Have you ever been to Mesa Grill in Vegas? (Goat cheese queso!! <3 )
