Roasted Strawberries!

I got 48 ounces of strawberries last week for only $3. I was excited to try these roasted strawberries I'd seen a recipe for. I washed, hulled, and halved them then mixed them with olive oil, maple syrup, and a little salt and baked them at 350 for about 40 minutes. After they came out of the oven, I splashed a little balsamic on them (skipped the port wine called for in the recipe because I didn't have any).
The next morning I heated up a bowl of the roasted strawberries and spooned it over toast spread with mascarpone. Mmmm! Delicious.

Link Love

I am a delinquent blogger.
Until I get inspired to post again, here are some fun things I've seen online in the past few weeks:

Crumpled city maps on Tyvek - what a great idea!

A play-able record wedding invitation - amazing.

A call to action from the Onion. I think I should read the Onion more. It's pretty great.

I think I posted this to facebook, but it's worth another watch: inspiring dance moves from a dad/grandad?

(Last two links courtesy of Jeremy Thorne, who seems to find the most interesting things online.)

Eagle Rock Daydream Festival

Last Sunday afternoon, we borrowed a canopy and table from a friend and set up shop under the eagle rock in a little park. It was a gray day, but turned out to be a fun chance to meet some new people and sell a few things.

Colin was, as always, so helpful and supportive. We took turns hiking around the area and he also got some reading and frisbee time in.

I had a few new things out that I'll put up in my etsy shop soon!

the pasta man

Colin made a pasta bake for last week's cell group. He made so much that he had to mix it in this huge tray lid I brought back from work to re-use. We took enough for our whole cell group, have leftovers in the freezer, and I've had it for lunch all week too!
