I have to say that this past week was a very good one! They are usually good but this one was quite special. My shoulders are better (pushing wheelchair on cruise was not a good idea) and the weather has been beautiful. I had lunch with friends and went to a lovely shower for a friend who is going to be a grandmother. Very elegantly done!
I played with the app Waterlogue on my iPhone and iPad. This program takes my photo and turns it into a watercolor painting. I am not an artist but I am able to manipulate some of my photos into artwork. I find it quite rewarding to experiment. Some photographs don't work with this program but most do.
Towards the end of the week, we found a new restaurant - new to us, that is. Pop's Sunset Grill is our new favorite. We have been there twice and will go next week.
The edamame salad was served with grilled shrimp. I will have this next.
The grilled salmon was out of this world as were the crab cakes I had earlier.
I bought some butternut squash. I am determined to use the Vitamix once a day. One of the features is making soup which actually becomes hot in the container.
I drizzled the squash, carrots and onion with olive oil and seasoned all with red pepper flakes, pepper, salt and fresh thyme. I used curry as well. Next time I will use more curry. I roasted this mixture at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. When the squash and vegetables are cool it is time to make soup.
I used chicken stock. I will try coconut milk next time.
The soup was silken. I like my soup to be a little "soupier" so I shall experiment until the consistency is more to my liking.
I hope your week was wonderful and this coming one will be a good one too.
