This weekend I made good on my promise to recreate my mom's fabulous butternut squash risotto (three cheers!), which I paired with panko crusted chicken and garlic lemon roasted zucchini. Deeelicious! Remond me why I don't cook like this every night?
Saturday morning I was up early to visit the Scottsdale Farmers Market for the first time. Coffee in hand, I managed to resist the face sized cinnamon rolls from the French Bakery stand, the pretzel sticks and apple oatmeal crumb cookies from Tammie Coe, and even a prize winning cheesy sausage potato breakfast burrito (Health kick 2013 is painful). But then we rounded the corner and a warm slice of gruyere spinach quiche started singing my name...there was no fighting it. I can NEVER say no to a quiche.
Retail therapy...it happened. It was glorious. I'm sorry Paris savings account!
Rounding out the wonderful weekend was a trip to Cartel for an espresso and an hour of killing time before work. Tommy Lee was there, catching up with friends. Seeing a semi celebrity in my personal neighborhood bubble is officially the oddest feeling. I mean I guess magazines have been explaining that Celebs! They're just like us! for years...but I'm just now a believer.
How was your weekend?
