Delightfully Delicious

Tehee...Pardon my cheesy titles...I just love alliteration.

This weekend is going to be delicious all the way through. I’m not one who likes cooking much out of duty, but on occasion it is fun to create something scrumptious. I started this weekend off by making this recipe from Cooking Light magazine. Didn’t they turn out pretty? I was rather proud of them. I served it with a salad, but I’m sure it would go equally well with a tomato basil soup.

Then I made a smoothie for dessert...because it would be tragic to go a whole day without something sweet. MMMMM. I love summertime for all the fruit. 
2 tsp. passion fruit juice concentrate (I used Langer’s because it’s all-natural)
5 large(ish) strawberries, sliced
1 banana
3 tbsp. all-natural vanilla yogurt (Dannon is my favorite)
1 cup Very Vanilla Silk (at least I think it was a cup...I sort of eye-balled it)
After indulging in these treats, I ventured outside in this equally delicious dress that I thrifted a couple weekends ago. The flippy skirt makes me feel like a dancer, and the pattern makes me think of The Secret Garden.

I love the little details of this dress. The silhouette is simple, but the straps are actually split into two. And the back swoops so gracefully. Even though it's casual, it makes me feel elegant.

More goodies to come, my dears!

I do my best to respond to all comments, but I'm pretty scatterbrained. So if I skip over you, it's most surely unintentional.
Thank you for your sweet words!
