Quinoa Salad //

Wednesday, 11 September 2013

Even though it is the middle of September, we are still having summer weather here in Vancouver, so why not indulge in a delicious fresh summer salad. I actually got the recipe for this from my sister which she sniped from cactus club! Either way, it is so yummy I had to share!

All you have to do is chop up the carrots, peas, red pepper, mint, basil and dates, cook the quinoa as per usual (one cup quinoa to two cups water), saute the shrimp in a bit of garlic and butter, let the quinoa and shrimp cool in the fridge, then toss everything together with the crumbled feta, drizzle some olive oil and balsamic and you're good to go! I added some toasted french bread and sliced avocado as well which made the dish absolutely perfect! Super easy and super healthy - enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday.

We're Engaged! //

Tuesday, 3 September 2013

All set up and ready to go for our loving guests. 

We started the night off in right Mexican fashion with some chilled shots of Patron.

I had decided to get Danny a little something to remember our engagement (he said yes).

I asked my girlfriends and sisters to be my bridesmaids with little bottles of pink champagne and an adorable printable from The Wedding Chicks.

The night ended with well, that. 

We had an AMAZING time. All of our friends and family made the night magical for us and we couldn't have asked for a better evening.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday.
