scenes from my weekend.

tulips at the market | french baguettes
olive oil & balsamic vinegar samplers | crêpe fixins’ | brunch with the girls

With Justin away at a hockey tournament, my girlfriends and I took it upon ourselves to take over the condo for a mini-dinner party, followed by a slumber party (and brunch the next day). Together, we spent Saturday evening attempting to make buckwheat pasta* and digging into my stash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar samplers. Naturally, we paired both with a bottle (or two) of prosecco and made sure to follow with dessert.

After a crêpe brunch on Sunday, we finished off with pedicures and a long afternoon nap**. Now adorning fuschia-pink toes (ready for an early spring!) we definitely tipped the scales towards an indulgent few days. I’m so glad I have such a great group of ladies to keep me company while Justin isn’t able. They make wonderful substitutes, though, I must admit, I am glad to have him home.

How was your weekend? I’d love to know!

*it only kind of worked
**Sundays should always be conducted in this fashion 

ps. I started painting as per my February resolution. I’ll be sure to show you the results once it’s complete (which could be months from now – time is at a premium at the moment). I forgot how much I enjoyed this process

    This looks like so much fun, and you always hear of couples that forget their friends but you have the balance so right :) my sister is one of those couples, all consumed by her husband, but I hope to be like this! Best of both worlds :) I spent the weekend in London for my best friends birthday weekend.. well and truly worn out though! xx

    I love reading these little weekend snippets on a Monday :)

    You know I was going to interject about the noodles :), I’ve made them a few times since I stopped eating gluten. I found it works best if you leave the dough to rest overnight (or longer, up to a day) and I add a teaspoon or so of lemon juice. Then just the buckwheat flour and water, in a 3 or 4 to 1 ratio (four parts flour, one part water). Really depends on the day and your flour, the resulting ball should hold together but not be too wet or crumbly. It’s easy to make so you should get the hang of it after one or two times.

    I also used a pasta machine to roll it out, possibly cheating, I know, but it’s sooo much easier.

      We had a pasta machine too! Without the egg we found there was nothing bonding it together – it kept crumbling. It was definitely very labour intensive! It still tasted delicious though! Thanks for the tips – I’ll try that next time

    so spring-y! love them all~

    xo the egg out west.

    I miss sleepovers! And now I want one even more so because instead of watching grease and painting our nails crazy colors, the natural choice is pasta, cheese, wine and laughing. This looks amazing :)

  17. Shoko says:

    Beautiful, beautiful colors!

  18. Oh! These pics are so spring filled :) LOVE

  19. Sarah says:
