Whew! With that, how was every one's Memorial Day? Our was filled with several social engagements, but not so many that it wasn't also relaxing.
Haruki started the weekend off with a deer leg.
Uck. Isn't that nasty? This is not one of the perks of living in the mountains. It sure did make Haruki happy though.
Human-food-wise, I made a few things this weekend, though you can barely call it cooking or baking. The first was roasted zucchini with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese. I dunked olive oil bread into this mixture, and it was good.
I also made some banana blueberry bread, which I--unusually, for me--slathered in some Earth Balance.
On Sunday David and I made a trip down to town to meet my family at the Boulder Creek Festival. The "Creek Fest," as everyone around here refers to it, is just a huge party all Memorial Day weekend, with rides, food, vendors, etc. My nieces Riley and Morgan were especially enchanted with a "ride" in which they were placed into huge sealed balls and then rolled into a big swimming pool.
The adults were more entertained by the beer garden, though of course I didn't partake in any:-( David and I had a wok-fired stir-fry for dinner, and even got to watch the chef work his magic by slicing veggies directly over a very large flame.
|This is not the big flame. I wasn't fast enough to get that picture.|
Dinner close up:
Yum, right? I really appreciate it when veggie dishes have lots of veggies in them.
