we finally hung a couple of prints i bought a while a back and we built some new shelves

 i had fun cooking some new dishes this weekend

little poppies blooming. i got lots of planting done in my yard over the weekend in my pack patio area by the pond and along the fence in the backyard. lots of plants that will spread and minimize my weeding time!

scenes from a steep, muddy trail run :-)

i didn't use a recipe for the above dish. i just had it in my mind what i wanted it taste like. a fresh thai spring role. here you go...

i used those rice noodles that come in little dried bundles and are thin, long and glossy. boil/drain

i steamed 2 large sockeye salmon pieces with a little coconut oil and lemon juice

chopped cucumber, carrot, radish, ginger, green onion, avocado, cilantro, mint and cashews

put the noodles in a bowl. flake the salmon on top. squeeze fresh lemon on top, throw the cashews on and top it with trader joe's sweet chili sauce

so fresh and so good. we had some leftover grilled chicken form another meal and we extra ingredients left, so the picture above is with chicken and it was super good too. not as good as the salmon though! this will be a dish to eat all summer.

hope you had a nice weekend. toodles for now.
