{Proof of a Lovely Weekend}

Since I dedicate my Monday posts to the Blog of the Week - today I thought I would share with you some of the pictures from my weekend. Every Friday I post about my weekend plans, but very seldom do I give you a report of the happenings. So today...here's a glimpse of lovely weekend:

Durham Farmers Market

Fosters Market
One of my favorite places to visit in Durham is Foster's Market - created by Sarah Foster, a former associate of Martha Stewart. Not only is the food excellent but the place is also just a great place to hang out and relax. They have vintage candy too!!!!

My Fave Summertime Pasta Recipe

  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Large shrimp
  • Local tomatoes
  • Local arugula
  • Local goat cheese (I purchased the pesto cheese)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt/pepper to taste

{Come on - tell me that doesn't look delish}

The instructions are as easy as 1 - 2 - 3:
1. Boil noodles, saute shrimp, and cut veggies
2. Mix all of the ingredients together, crumble cheese, mix into pasta, salt/pepper to taste

3. ENJOY!!!!!!!

  4. I know I am late responding to this, but you inspired me to but a recipe I found up on my site. I think you would really like it! It's chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese, fresh basil and sun-dried tomatoes! You can't go wrong! I think I am trying yours tonight!
