Tiny sunflowers, daisy gerbera. One of my favorites!
This year's Valentine's Day celebration was the best I've had so far. I met up with my best girl friends for some Mom & Tina's lunch date and headed to the studio for a Vinyasa Flow date with my mat and the other awesome dateless yoginis. Treated myself with a vegetarian dinner and some pampering afterwards.
On that weekend, Papa Q treated his girls for a post-Valentine's Day dinner at Pipino for the special 5-course meal.
Creamed Corn Soup
Watermelon Steak with Taro Miso Mash, String Beans and Pickled Mushrooms
Squash Risotto with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Sage and Fennel Sausage and Cashew Cheese Nuggets
Ice Cream Cookie Cup
Papa Q's birthday dinner!
Honey Glazed Dutch Carrots
Niçoise Salad with Lemon-Garlic Dressing
Spinach Pasta with Sun-dried Tomatoes, Anchovies and White Cheese
Seared Salmon with Tomatoes, Olives and Apple Cider Dressing
Happy Birthday, Papa Q!
My usual Sunday routine: morning yoga practice with Yoga For Life Community and Sunday Organic Market for lunch and some fruits and vegetables shopping!
I love this new detail on the girls' bathroom door at the studio :)
