Photo Fun Day Friday

Share This

Happy Friday everyone! Hope your week has been wonderful! These Friday photo posts really make me realize how quick each week goes by, I honestly felt like I just did one of these posts! This past long weekend was a fun filled one with lots of family and friends and my shortened work week was filled with lots of yoga and some really fun projects both for work and for Tasty Yummies.

If you have kids, I hope their first week back to school was great (if they started this week). There is something so welcoming at the sight of all the big yellow school buses and the loads of back to school goodies in stores. However, I did realize that there is something about the start of the school year that triggers a major shopping bug in me and I want to go out and buy all new clothes. I guess that is from being a kid and buying a whole new back-to-school wardrobe. Looks like a trip to the thrift store is in order, perfect for my budget! 🙂 Do you have the shopping bug right now, too? 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend. We have a wedding on Saturday for some really good friends and then I have a feeling we will be watching some football and relaxing on Sunday!

Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend?

We went to East Aurora this past Saturday to walk around a little, visit some of the locally owned shops, etc. I finally got into Swirls Bakery, who offers a different gluten-free and vegan cupcake flavor every day! So delicious!

We of course also stopped by the legendary, iconic Vidler’s 5 and 10. I remember going here as a kid. So many great memories, this place is the best. And of course, I adore their 10 cent popcorn machine 🙂

A delicious lunch treat. Polenta rounds with an eggplant caponata and vegan cheese (recipe will be posted on Sunday)

Made a super thrown together dinner on Wednesday night after not knowing what the heck to make. A end of summer veggie red curry with eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper, tomatoes and I served it over rice noodles and topped it with toasted coconut. I was inspired by this recipe that perfectly popped up in my google reader right around dinner time – but I made mine a bit differently – I added a lot more red curry and some vegetable broth and used gluten-free soy instead of fish sauce, etc.

Homemade orange spice and cranberry granola. I will definitely have to make this again so I can share the recipe. It was delicious and those house smelled incredible while it baked.

One of my native-inspired women’s tops that I designed and hand silkscreen printed is featured on a new billboard for the Buffalo News. Fun little surprise.

Did you make this recipe - or any others from the TY archives?
