Weekend Feasting

This weekend Brian and I gorged ourselves.

Spring is the first appearance of ice cream. People say it's a Summer thing, but to me it's a Spring thing. I can never wait until the summer months to eat it, I break it out in Spring. And on Friday, we broke out the Bluebell Ice cream.

Here's what i made this weekend for our weekend menu:

Oh yum! The potato salad looks divine....

We ate lots and lots of asparagus: ravioli, risotto, salads, etc. The true sign of Spring to me!

K. Davis said...

wowee, what yumminess! That flatbread looks amazing, I'm going to have to look for a recipe on that! Looks absolutely mouth watering!

This weekend I ate lots of homemade trail mix!

Potatoes are my fave! These both sound amazing, especially the potato-dill combo, yum!

Meghan said...

Oh, yum!

I had an amazing dinner with duck on Friday, then went to a BBQ restaurant on Saturday and had ice cream yesterday. I definitely gorged myself as well:)

What a cute drawing! Makes me wanna run to the gelateria right this minute :)
The meals also look so yummy! Oh, I think I need an afternoon snack :)

Kaye Prince said...

We busted out the ice cream too! I wanted to buy it week before last but Alex said no, that was just too early! On Friday night we had bruschetta-stuffed chicken (chicken stuffed with tomato, basil, and mozzarella) with steamed asparagus. That was the most exciting meal of the weekend, everything else was leftovers and quicker meals!

SHEILA said...

Could you post the recipes somewhere? I would love to try both of these. Gorgeous pics!

PACountry said...

Great pics! Ice cream was on sale here, so I got some called Skinny Minty- think it will work?
I made apple dumplings, too. Apples are healthy, right?

Renee said...

Your weekend menu looks great! I was selling at a craft show so I ended up with Taco Bell. :( Yours looks much better!

Ice Cream is an all around the year thing for me, but I love it the most in the winter. There is something so comforting and lovely about being in a sweater and eating a bowl of ice cream. In the summer it is almost too rich and creamy, so I prefer icier treats...like Popsicles and the amazingness that is Otter Pops.

OTTER POPS RULE!!

The potato salad looks great!

Leanne said...

Oh my goodness, it's not even 9 a.m. and you have my mouth watering!

Ashley Yazzie said...

D,
This food looks amazing! I'm always in awe of your cooking power!

Hugs,

Sarah Esther said...

Oh those both look amazing! Where is the recipe for that pizza? Can I borrow it?

I had ice cream, too! Coldstone made a long-awaited appearance into my Saturday feast :)

LBB said...

Your food always looks so delicious! You look like a fabulous cook! But you only eat ice cream when Spring arrives??? I wish I had your restraint! ;)

Dionne said...

Hahaha, LBB - i eat ice cream in any season, but in Spring I eat it all the time!

Sarah Esther, I can send you those recipes, what's your email?

Vanessa said...

Mmmm... That potato salad is beckoning to me. I'm a BIG fan of gorging. And I fully plan on doing that when I go on vacation on Wednesday. Not a singly pastry in Paris will be safe!

VivatRegina said...

My goodness! I'm coming to visit, haha! Dionne, you are so talented. :)

Erin said...

Summer? Spring? Seriously? We eat ice cream all winter!!!!!!!!

This weekend... we didn't have anything too special, but we did grill our first hamburgers of the year!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

Sarah Esther said...

Yes! That would be awesome..

sarah@sarahesther.com

thanks so so much :)

Barbara said...

I adore your ice cream cone! You are so talented!
Ice cream is all year round for me! (I know, I live in Florida, but when I lived in Michigan I liked it just as much!)
Looking forward to trying some new recipes in my ice cream maker!

Nothing exciting to eat around here...we are dieting! :(

Whatever Dee-Dee wants said...

Yum! I want to come eat at your house!

Phoenix said...

I think I eat ice cream year round...but I definitely start to crave ice cream sandwiches, gelato, and root beer floats when the temp gets up above 65 degrees. Oh, and don't even get me started on fresh fruit... ::Drool::

Carissa said...

I didn't eat anything as yummy as what you made, that's for sure! that flatbread looks amazing, I think I would eat it even though I don't particularly like onions or cheese! haha. and I am a total sucker for potato salad! geez, Dionne, you got me hungry now! :) (your photos never fail to do that!)

p.s. I consider ice cream good all year long! eeps! maybe that's why I need to go to the gym more often :)

alli/hooray said...

Yum! I was feeling spring + made potato salad this weekend, too. And with a Coldstone next door, ice cream is always on our menu.

Gaia said...

it was my granny's birthday so I had a great Italian lunch!

Pasta, fish and a perfect cake!

I love potato and your flatbead looks so yummy! I can imagine the smell...make me hungry!
Have a great week! Come to visit me for my Easter giveaway!

Kristin said...

your pictures are lovely, as usual!

we feasted as well! friday night was breakfast for dinner - blueberry pancakes! yum! Saturday was an afternoon spent at my sister's where we made four different homemade pizzas with all sorts of toppings and then had a sweets bonanza - two kinds of cookies and brownies. And Sunday included meeting a friend for brunch for one of my most favorite salads.

I'm still full!

Patty said...

That looks so good, I'm so glad it's finally warm enough to eat ice cream ;)

FEDERICA said...

Mmmmmmmm everything look so yummy! Great photos as always!
Hugs,
federica.

the southern hostess said...

Yum! I'm terribly jealous of this meal.

Tender Branson said...

The flatbread looks wonderful. I haven't worked much with dill but the few times I've eaten with potatoes the match seems perfect.

chloeblossom said...

Wow - that flatbread looks phenomenal! Can you share the recipe?

Looking forward to exploring more of your gorgeous blog!

Dandelion and Grey said...

Your photos are lovely! I'm definitely hungry now! I can't get over how good that potato salad looks with that rosemary sprig!
