A Treatful Weekend

There is no such word as Treatful, and yet it completely describes my weekend...

Have you ever tried a Cannelle? I have always wanted to try one, and had never remembered to look for them when I was out and about in Los Angeles, and it seemed even less likely that I would find them here in Houston. But on Saturday - BAM! - I found some!

So this, my friends, was Treat Number 1.

The next treat was adorable. My second treat was spotting an adorable little Herb Stand. At our local Farmer's Market, these two little boys were selling fresh herbs - complete with a gingham tablecloth and their own hand-written signs. It was definitely a treat to see!

Treat Number 3 popped up shortly after that when I received something I had purchased from Etsy in the mail. It included a lovely little extra gift as a thank you, and you should all know me well enough to know that I love surprises!

Treat Number 4 was tonight. Brian prepared a lovely dinner, slow-cooked throughout the day to perfection. I love it when Brian cooks!

Was your weekend a treatful one?

I love weekends! They are always "treatful" to my stomach:) Love your slow cooked treat illustrations!

Simply Mel said...

I think "treatful" should be a word because every day is filled with them!

My weekend was filled with organic blackberry gelato and finding a great new pair of shoes!

I had quite a treatful weekend, including chocolate goat cheese from the farmer's market with fresh berries. It was delicious!

My treat was a chance to spend time with friends and family after a stressful week. Love the herb stand. I can see why that would be such a treat.

Sounds like a lovely weekend! I just found your blog and am really enjoying it.

Also, I recently found cannales in the freezer section of Trader Joes, it was all I could do not to eat them all at once!

My weekend was less than treatful. Saturday was alright: Alex and I watched a movie (Defiance; very good) had coffee on a patio, and then roasted a chicken for dinner.

But yesterday I spent almost the whole day in bed sick and had to miss out on visiting our friend Tony to watch Mad Men. I did get some knitting done, but that didn't really make up for how ill I felt.

I'm glad that you had such a lovely weekend! Slow cooking, yum!

What a great word...treatful. Being with my fiance is always a treat! My weekend treats:

I found a wonderful pair of American-made running shoes.

I purchased supplies for my next exciting project, which may or may not involve opening a second Etsy shop :)

I received a request for an entirely custom order on Etsy!

We got a crockpot and ingredients to make a tummy vegetable stew.

PS I meant "yummy" stew ha ha!

AuroraRose said...

my weekend was treatful - my last weekend with my boyfriend before he went to new york this morning for 2 months... sniff!

Jaime said...

I love that word, treatful, that you've created. Your weekend does sound treatful! What is a cannelle? Never had one...

Mine was treatful in that I had a delish ice cream cone, moose tracks (vanilla, fudge swirl, mini peanut butter patties). YUM!

DesBisoux said...

your cannelle looks a lot like canelet which is a little french cake from Bordeaux. and they are so yummy!
your blog is a real wee treat!

Vanessa said...

Hmm, my weekend wasn't so treatful. But restful. Which I desperately needed. Sunday was the first day in a month and a half that I didn't have a thing to do. So, I did NOTHING :-)

jessica said...

love the photos and illustration of your treats!

Ruxandra said...

I had a great weekend. I cooked an awesome meatloaf. This is the first meatloaf I've cooked since I've been married. My hubby claimed that he hated meatloaf because he ate so much meatloaf as a child. So out the blue the man asks me to cook a meatloaf this weekend. Weird but I was glad because I love meatloaf. He helped me prepare the meal and we had a blast.

We also had the opportunity to meet Aaron Eckhart this weekend. Very nice guy.

Darren said...

Yes, indeed! Cannelles rock!

Maria Confer said...

The best day is a day full of treats! I had that yesterday, I got an early birthday parcel (I had to open it - I could not wait) and I had a fantastic thrift shop treasure hunt, then made cupcakes with my girls.

Torie Jayne said...

Morning, I love the word treatful, that is what weekends are about for me!, have a sweet day! x

Underfunded Heiress said...

Yummy! Looks delish!

Kristin said...

Your treat filled weekend sounds divine. I think I could go for some hot chocolate even if it is 1000 degrees outside!

Hello, darling said...

It wasn't nearly as treatful as yours, but I was able to enjoy half a tub of Ben and Jerry's and a really good stir - fry ♥

Kristin said...

I think it's a perfect word! Sounds like a wonderful weekend, indeed!! I had a lovely one as well... visiting our friends' new baby girl, Rosie, having my dear friend over for breakfast on Saturday (a puff pancake - yum!) and going to breakfast with hubby on Sunday. It was a treatful weekend for me, too!! ;)
