the little things..

*making a new recipe- this week I made these spicy bean and rice burritos.  used a flour tortilla for d and corn tortillas for me.  added a little extra chipotle and they had a nice kick.  a hit in our house :)

*new blog I discovered and love.

*a visit to qualicum cheeseworks.  cross that one off the 12 in 2012

they must really like each other :)

*this quote.

*precious time with friends.

brookers enjoying the sunshine.

it really is the little things this week.  being my last week off before I start full-time work for the rest of the summer, I really tried to enjoy it.  I can say I'm happiest when surrounded by my closest family and friends- they make a world of difference to me.  I can't wait for all the fun summer adventures I have planned with them.  happy weekend my friends! see you periodically over the next couple weeks as I will be at sea checking up on the shrimp in georgia strait.  yay for sailing.

first ever date square attempt.

my first attempt at date squares pretty successful, right?  you can find the recipe I used here.  I used medjool dates and they were delicious (I indulge in a small square of treats that I bake regardless of whether they have gluten or not- gotta taste test!) in time, I hope to start substituting the flour for rice flour or gluten-free baking mix but for now I like to bend the rules.

happy tuesday my sweet friends.

adventure weekend- our view.

we escaped to strathcona park lodge this past weekend.  neither of us had checked out the area before and we were floored by its beauty.  lost myself in this view from our room on many occasions.  can't beat the lake and mountain backdrop.  more on our adventures soon.  hope everyone had a relaxing weekend.
