{MIMM} Weekend Recap 09/06-09/08

September 9, 2013
Initially I started off this post complaining about how boring my weekend was. And then I read it over and realized my weekend wasn’t boring at all! Maybe spending hours in the kitchen baking and actually having time to workout is considered boring for some people, but not for me. I wasn’t the most social I’ve ever been, but after the craziness of the last few weeks and especially last weekend, I am certainly not complaining. There were some definite highlights (and not-so-highlights that I am sharing anyway) and in line with the Marvelous Monday theme I am expressing my appreciation for having time, even if it wasn’t spent in the most exciting way.

I bet your Friday night wasn’t as thrilling as mine was! Hours of Say Yes to the Dress and a new pasta sauce recipe. One of those nights…

I slept in on Saturday until 10:00 AM. That’s basically unheard of for me. I was feeling ultra lazy so I just heated up a frozen carrot cake waffle, topped it with some PB, banana & chia seeds and just called it a day. I have enough of those waffles to feed the entire Duggar Family. Can someone PLEASE take some of them off of my hands?
Hit the gym with my padre once again. My head wasn’t in the game and as per usual my left leg was acting up. Thinking it’s my piriformis this time because I have shooting pains down the back of my leg. Fun stuff! I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and then my Fit & Fab Spring Abs workout. Followed by A LOT of stretching…and shameless selfies with my Dad being the push-up king in the background.
I finally saw Amy! Seriously it had been way too long. We headed down to the St. Lawrence Market in search of Kabocha squash. I have scoured all of Toronto for this goodness but could not find it anywhere. I read somewhere online that you could find them at the St. Lawrence Market. After much searching we finally found some. We were beyond excited! I think I can die happy.
I contemplated whether or not I should show you this picture. I’m not revealing exactly what they are but be prepared to be overwhelmed by deliciousness! Recipe coming this week…
With an epic success like those I was asking for a failure. My attempt at sweet potato fritters was disastrous. Instead of trying to salvage the remnants I stuck with my go-to breakfast, oatmeal. I spruced it up with some bananas, figs and pistachio butter.

The highlight of the weekend was seeing “Can A Song Safe Your Life?” at the Toronto International Film Festival. It stars Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine and was directed by the same director of “Once”.  The movie was filmed all around NYC so it was incredibly nostalgic for me. It was by far the best movie I have seen all year! They haven’t announced a release date but hopefully it will be by the new year. It is a MUST see.

And to top off the weekend I spent Sunday afternoon babysitting my niece and nephew and prepping for the week. Here’s what’s on the roster: The mystery soup shown below, roasted kabocha squash, BBQed chicken, Harvest Grain Salad, steel-cut oats (been too long!) and cut some fruit and veggies to snack on. Ready for the week.

Thanks to the Diva for hosting us!

Can you guess the mystery recipes? What does your ideal weekend look like?

    Ahhh I was in Toronto 2 years ago during TIFF and watched a Sarah Palin mock-documentary.. it was interesting! I will happily take those waffles off you 😉 Love how you work out with your dad- sorry, how you take photos while your dad works out :p

    Not sure if its the same in Canada, but here they don’t call Kabocha that, they refer to it as either Japanese pumpkin or Kent pumpkin- I thought we didn’t have them at all, turns out its one of the cheapest!

    But your weekend sounds fabulous! Especially the part about meeting Amy and finding kabocha 😀 But I know what you mean about sometimes just feeling like you’re not living the most exciting life – I definitely feel the same way about mine sometimes, but it’s always good to appreciate even those little moments… especially if they’re following up a few weeks of craziness.

    I like weekends that are a balance of busy and boring. I like having time to do my own thing at home (like make delicious recipes!!), and having the opportunity to go out and be social (like meeting fellow bloggers at markets) 😀

    Happy Monday, lovely lady!

    Your weekend eats look great – I dont think I ‘ve ever had figs and oatmeal and that soup looks amazing!
    I have no clue what that mystery ball is – but it looks delectable! Is it some nut buttery concoction? Are you trying to hand these away too? Being the helpful person I am, I will volunteer to take some of them off your hands as well – You can even send the package as a COD 🙂

    OK, this pretty much sounds like my ideal weekend :). Time to do what you want + a little social activity + lots of cooking and working out? DONE. Be careful with that piriformis – do you have a foam roller? That’s what saved mine! I think the soup is a tomato florentine! And to answer your plea … I will take ANY of your food off your hands at any time!

Those balls look delicious (that’s what she said? haha)! I am guessing they are a raw concoction involving chocolate…at least i hope they are ;)!

    You went to a film festival?? How fun! Your weekend doesn’t sound the least bit boring. I can’t wait to hear what you do with that giant squash! I can’t guess the mystery recipe, but those balls LOOK like croquettas, my favorite Spanish food EVERRRR. Knowing that you prepare GF, vegetarian meals, I know that they can’t possibly be croquettas though. My guess is that the powdery look on the outside is cinnamon and that they are actually some kind of dessert. Can’t wait for the reveal haha. Have a great day love!

      I have no idea how it happened but it was probably the first time in 5 years…it was absolutely glorious!–>in reference to the sleeping in, though I definitely do enjoy my dad’s company!

    Actually I think my Friday night may have rivaled yours…I had a group meeting for my finance class, roasted up way too much kabocha squash, and watched about 10 minutes of a random movie before falling asleep. Crazy party animal over here. Speaking of kabocha though, I am glad you two found them! And you know I am dying over that truffle looking concoctions (okay I honestly have no idea what they are) and those figs…

    My weekend was same as your…Work out and cook for my blog! I don’t tend to lead an “exciting” life. I’m ok with that. Simple, drama free, happy…can’t complain. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what those balls are!

    These figs look amazing on the oatmeal and pistachio butter (I saw that on your IG!), now I have figs from my Sagunt trip, hopefully I will use them before I leave Spain! Did you go to the Toronto Veg Festival?
