Weekend Wanderings

We enjoyed a weekend at home.  And let me tell you, it brings me immeasurable happiness to call this place home.   The mountain was out!  That would be Mt. Rainier.  You can only see it on a clear day, so it's a real treat to behold.

  It was mostly a deliciously lazy weekend, spent wandering parks and city streets, thrown in with some knitting, cooking/eating, and movie watching with my handsome husband. 

We went to Pike Place market for lunch and a little grocery shopping.  It's not easy to shop here on a Saturday, with such heavy crowds, but it sure is fun to watch the people, enjoy a little street music, and take in all the energy from such a vibrant, bustling place. I think I found "my" fruit stand though.  Once I find a place I like, I tend to stick with it- and I liked this place.  There was live music to shop to and a very persuasive, (and cute) shopkeeper who managed to sell me much more than the spinach I was initially after.  He kept offering me samples of all the produce.  How could I refuse?   Derek cooked the best breakfast this morning with the spinach and a few other goodies we found. I took a picture of it, but it wasn't very photogenic, so I'll describe it instead, because you might like to try it to.

This is a high protein breakfast....something I need on Sunday mornings to keep me from fainting out of hunger before church gets out!

Layer these ingredients:  sauteed spinach and mushrooms on the bottom, followed by a ground sirloin burger, next some goat cheese, followed by a fried egg.

This is so good!  And I guaruntee, it will give you energy all morning long.

Your weekend sounds so nice! Did Derek make up that lovely recipe? Wow! Jon always makes breakfast on Sundays too. : ) Did you like 100 Days of Summer?

Hi Kristen! Derek copied that meal from one that we had at a favorite cafe. Yes, I liked 500 Days of Summer. It was fun and quirky...and the clothes were so cute!

Oh what beauty you are surrounded by! I have always wanted to go to Seattle and you're only stoking the fires.

Have you discovered that yummy Greek place in downtown Kirkland? Your photos reminded me of it.....makes me hungry for a Gyro! (I think it's called Santorini's)

Kristi- Everybody keeps telling us that Santorinis is very good, but we haven't made it there yet. It's definitely on the "list" :-)

That looks just like it did in Victoria. Lots of shops and lots of people. I am so glad to be home. We are not city people any more.

It's been forever since I was at Pike's, but I remember it as being a place I wanted to return to. Oh, to look around and have those views... beautiful!
