Rainbows…

September 25, 2009

Rainbow_2_by_bittykateI came across this cake called the Super Epic Rainbow Cake and thought how fun and yummy is this thing? I’m totally making it over the next few days, it’s fun and chaotic and I guess that’s the kind of mood I’m in. Sometimes you get sick of pretty and safe and this is just the answer. I hope it tastes as amazing as it looks. Have a wonderful and fun weekend!

I love the idea of a cupcake truck. I’ve seen it a few other times but never in an urban area. Hum, thinking this might be exactly what DC needs…

AvocadoandCrab

Avocado & Crab with Marie Rose Sauce

I love avocado and  I love fresh crab so together they make an incredible combination, a simple but special meal. I’ve been in sort of a food rut lately. I really enjoy simple meals with great flavor so when I came across this recipe I knew I’d try it this weekend.  I also think it would be a great light meal paired a crunchy bread toasted with sweet butter and a nice glass of white wine to kick off or end an afternoon of shopping with the girls.  Looks delish! Have a great and tasty weekend!

SERVES: 4
TIME: 10 minutes

  • 8 ounces fresh jumbo lump crab meat
  • 1 lemon, cut in half
  • coarse salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup Veganaise or your favorite mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 small shallot, finely grated
  • 2 avocadoes, cut in half, pits discarded

In a medium bowl, squeeze the juice from one half of the lemon over the crab and stir to combine with a large pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Whisk the Veganaise, ketchup and shallot together in a large bowl and fold in the crab, being sure not to break it up too much. Fill each avocado half with a quarter of the crab salad. Cut the remaining lemon into wedges and serve alongside the stuffed avocados.

Laudree macaroons makes me long for a breezy city afternoon where I’m people watching, sipping tea and eating yummy treats after shopping and great conversation with my one of my closest friends. Ah, one of the sweet and simple pleasures of being a girl. Blissful.
