Hamatreya Skirting and Get in my Belly

hamatreya + stripes

I've been a busy little domestic bee this weekend with a top-to-bottom house cleaning, some nesting (I know it's been like three months since we've moved, but we're still not settled), a trip to the farmer's market and bits of home cooking.

I tried making roast for the first time, which ended up being a breeze, thanks to this slow cooker pot roast recipe. I only got a two-pound roast and didn't include potatoes but kept the rest of the ingredients the same and still ended up with a nice flavorful meal.

We decided to go full carb loading on the side and made mashed potatoes with yorkshire pudding which turned out super impressively high. I may have had more than more share of them, especially with some strawberry jam for an after-dessert dessert (that's right).

On Sunday morning, these easy apple dumplings filled the tummy nicely, especially with a few scoops of vanilla (ice cream for breakfast is acceptable on the weekends, right). I guess we made a weekend out of consuming cozy brown foods, haha. My dietician and trainer would both likely be aghast at me, but that's partly I don't have either.

What edible goodness have you consumed this weekend?

  2. I love the concept of after dessert dessert. Hehe. This weekend I tried a blueberry and lemon muffin for the first time (um, the blueberries have antioxidants in them so that makes it okay, right?!) and that was surprisingly nice and non-weird. I also had sushi and Japanese melon-pan! Other delights include the dinner I made on Saturday - Udon Cabonara! Insanely good! and the one Victor made on Sunday - Spatchcock Poussin and salad. Surprisingly, he had his fill of carbs the night before, haha. He's such a girl! :)

  6. Holy smokes, I want those apple dumplings. I made Hokkaido milkbread (which will be on my own blog as soon as I decide to stop being lazy and write about it already) yesterday and it was wonderful. Slathered a piece with jam, then made a turkey sandwich with some other slices... yes.

    The skirt is so colorful with the shoes and the bag, and it's exactly the kind of outfit I'd want to see on this dreary Seattle morning.

    1. If only I had the time/want-to cook like this all the time! But then I'd be huge because I am such a carb fiend ... ;o)

  13. I actually made a rib roast this week-end with mashed potatoes. Although I cooked it in the oven, it was still super easy (basically salt and pepper and let it cook for a couple hours). I made yorkshire pudding the last time I made the roast. My grandmother was English and she made the best roast/yorkshire pudding! I think the apple turnovers look great, and I think I'll try them this weekend. Thanks for the recipes! I was so distracted by the food, but yes, as always, I love your outfit as well - I love your necklace.

    1. Ooh, rib roast, girl I bow to your talent! Large hunks of meat in the oven is still too varsity for me unless it's meatloaf. I usually dry those poor suckers out!

    2. Oh, rib roast is easy. Just a 2/12 to 3 1/2 pound rib roast (generously coated with salt and pepper on all sides) and cook at 325 for about 1 3/4 hours. That's it! I think the roast doesn't dry out because of the cut of meat. I've made it several times and have never had a problem with this roast drying out as I have others. I'm making those apple dumplings this weekend!

  14. Yum! I am so hungry right now. That all sounds delicious! I love this outfit so much. I also love your humor. Too funny about the personal trainer.

  15. Such a preppy, feminine look - what you do best! I love how you pulled the fuschia out of the print with your bag and shoes. Great punches of color!
