Beautiful Weekend

We were very much looking forward to this past weekend.  The two previous weekends were spent in Saskatoon, and before that, we were just getting home from Vegas, and unpacking, etc..  We were so excited for a weekend of relaxing in our own backyard.

On Friday evening it was a bit rainy, so we made bee bim bop and put on a movie.

Comforting and cozy!

We slept in a bit on Saturday morning, which was so nice, and then cooked up eggs in a hole and bacon.

We then spent the rest of the day in the backyard.  We listened to all sorts of music from Miles Davis to DeadMau5 

We snacked ...

Admired our homegrown peas ...

And saw something very frightening ...

For dinner we BBQd some tasty homemade burgers.

Christopher loaded his with blue cheese ... and I ... didn't.

We loved it outside so much, that the next morning we were right back out there cooking our breakfast.

I found the bacon stand thing at Home Sense recently and thought it was genius!  It catches the grease on both sides, so that it doesn't drip into the BBQ.  It worked perfectly.

It was such a beautiful morning, and so nice to eat outside.

Later in the day we made a big bowl of pico de gallo and snacked on that, and then used it to top our hotdogs.

We had a pretty great weekend - just the two of us, in the backyard.

We ended it off with some beetniks from the farmers' market.

How was your weekend?  What did you do?  Do you ever cook breakfast outside?

That sounds like the perfect weekend, especially after a string of weekends spent out of town! All of your food looks and sounds amazing but I'm especially craving pico de gallo after seeing a photo of it. Mmmm.

My weekend was great. I was outside a lot during the mornings but laid low in the afternoons as I didn't want to get too much sun (I have to be careful about that due to a medication I am on). I haven't ever cooked breakfast outside but the breakfast you made looks delicious - love the bacon cooking contraption!
