Odds & Ends

Pin It

I've decided to switch it up around here on my Saturday posts. There are several other bloggers (Jessica, Tracy, and Lauren, to name a few) who do a regular list post and I enjoy the way they change it up and link to other sites or share random thoughts. I don't know if this is something I'll do every week or less often, but I thought I'd give this a try.

The odds and ends on my mind this week....

1. My friend was wearing this dress recently and I fell in love with it. I plan to stalk it until it goes on sale and then hope it fits me as perfectly as it fit her! You don't mind Lauren, right?! ;)

2. I made this shaved zucchini salad recently and was once again reminded what a great summer salad it is....a great change from the typical lettuce-based salad. I used walnuts instead of pine nuts this time and think I may have liked it even better!

3. When I was flipping through a Good Housekeeping magazine at a doctor's appointment recently, I spotted a tart recipe that featured an almond crust, a white chocolate cream cheese filling, and an almond brittle topping. I did not rip out the recipe and instead figured I'd Google it when I got home. I've Googled every possible combination and cannot find this recipe. It's driving me crazy, but of course I have no idea what issue it was (I think Bobby Flay was on the cover?!). If you've seen this recipe and can help me out, please send my way!!!
4. I need that message above, every day. My life is one to-do list after another. This summer I've made a conscious effort to put an end to that, to spend more time being and less time doing. I have a long way to go but I've made good progress. Let whatever you do today be enough too!
