So it had been awhile since I skipped a regular post, as I have stuck to my Monday, Wednesday, Friday posting schedule like a fly sticks to sticky fly trap paper. But last Thursday night as I sat down to write my Friday post, the fly got unstuck from the trap and I decided to skip the post as I was more preoccupied with other things. Nothing outrageously exciting, but more exciting that forcing Freddy Fingers to type out a post I just didn’t have the motivation to write. Call it writers block, or food block, or picture block. I just needed a break. So break I did, but now I am ready to share with you a random compilation of thoughts about what my weekend needs to be complete:
A weekend would not be complete without a new foodie find.
Since mustard is one of my favorite dressing ingredients this new Wasabi mustard was not only delicious but a beautiful color. I love the shade of wasabi green!
Stub’s Wasabi Mustard.
A weekend would not be complete without some new foodie experiments.
Like sun-drying tomatoes…
Sun drying tomatoes
Just kidding! The fly’s would get to it, and I’m sure my method would be quite unsanitary. This just happened my accident when the cherry tomato (fresh from the garden) fell off my plate and I forgot to bring it inside. Thus it became sun dried.
A weekend would not be complete without something happening to Holly.
Like getting stung by a bee on the eye…

A weekend would not be complete without harvesting something from the garden.
It has been a great year for our cucumbers so far! The cherry tomatoes aren’t as plentiful as they were last summer, but they still have loads of green fruit on them, so I’ve just got to be patient.

A weekend would not be complete without a fun info graphic find…
If you follow me on pinterest you may have noticed that I love info-graphics. Information and graphics are two of my favorite things (separately) so once they are combined it’s like magic! One I found this weekend was a tool that allows you to see which Olympic athlete best matches your body type. You can see it here. Although this may be triggering to some who struggle with comparison, I found it quite interesting and motivational to start trying to build muscle again!

Have you harvested anything from your garden?
Do you like mustard? If so what is your favourite flavor? (I love horseradish mustard!)
