You might say it was a creative weekend around here.
I made this homemade cinnamon dolce iced coffee, which was good but probably would have been better if I had actually followed the directions instead of winging it halfway through. Gets me every time.
I also made Martha’s whipped yogurt (with different toppings), a recipe found courtesy of ripping out magazine pages for a few hours on Saturday (foreshadowing). It really is the perfect plan: whip Greek yogurt with heavy cream and top with fruit and nuts, therefore justifying eating protein-ified whipped cream for lunch.
A+, Martha. A+.
And last but not least, I made Trader Joe’s pesto chicken with a side of whole wheat shells with olive oil, basil, and ricotta salata. My favorite kind of dinner: no recipe to follow and enough leftover for multiple lunches/dinners this week. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
In matters unrelated to food, I made this wall.
You may be wondering, “What would possess a person to cover an entire wall in online photos, prints, and magazine pages on the spur of the moment?” And if I had the answer to that question, I would tell you. I only know that from time to time I decide to do something large-scale creative for which I have not planned at all and into which I will dive headfirst.
But on the flip side, I do now have a newly decorated wall that I really love. And all for the low, low price of 48 hours of printing/cutting/taping/ladder-climbing/social-hermiting.
What did you all do this weekend? Any other spontaneous project people out there?
