Cream and Sparkle

what a week last week was for me, and not because i was attending Fashion Week (serious bummer i couldn't attend not even 1 event) - this Butterflies wings were landed and wrapped in a cocoon for 6+ days with what i thought was a cold to find out it was the flu - aches, sweating, cough, congestion, couldn't sleep, dizzy spells, tummy aches, you name it this Butterfly had it - i'm hoping i got my 'yearly' cold/flu out of the way - i don't think i could take 1 more day living in bed - i seriously was starting to go stir crazy - let me note there's not 1 movie i have not seen - i did however have a steady rotation of Kung Fu Panda 2, Beaches, Hop, Just Go With It, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Vow, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Philadelphia 

yesterday i made a huge batch of fresh roasted tomatoes from the garden - then i roasted some eggplant from the garden as well - and well then i kinda' got addicted that i was able to cook - so i roasted up zucchini and squash - and i also roasted some jalapeno peppers (if you don't follow me on Facebook, i have a zillion jalapeno peppers from the garden, so i'm looking for some recipes, except poppers, on what to do with all these jalapeno peppers?!- tonight i'm going to combine all the roasted veggies, make a sauce out of the tomatoes and make a veggie lasagna (one of the beaus favorite dishes i make, follow me on instagram:@tiptoebutterfly for some food porn) 

ps - follow me on instagram: tiptoebutterfly and Facebook to keep up with my travels - lots of travels are on the calendar - starting tomorrow - road trip! :o)

  5. I love roasted eggplant. But my husband hates it so I don't get to eat it as often as I'd like. :( Your garden veggies sound amazing.

    I would love for you to stop by and check out my pictures from my first Fashion Week.

  6. I neeeeeeeed that sparkly pillow!


  7. Loving that sparkly pillow. So glad you are feeling better. There is nothing worse than the flu. Roasted tomatoes sound sooooo good. xo

  8. Eek so sorry to hear you were so sick! The flu is the absolute worst. But don't you feel liike a rebirth once you start to feel better? It's incredible.

    Have a great weekend, love! xoxo

  9. Sweetheart, so glad to know you are feeling better (being sick stinks! BOOO!) So jalapeno peppers, huh? I was actually going to post about my holding them in my hand...staring at them with a puzzled look and wondering what the heck I can do with them. I ended up stuffing them with a mix of cooked quinoa seasoned with caramelized onions and curry powder. They are great. But yeah, not too many ideas on what to do with them, so I'll end up roasting and canning them. Have a fun weekend, love.

  10. All of your veggie roasting reminds me of when women would become obsessed with canning veggies back in the day. It must be wonderful to have a garden and your own supply of fresh goodness to had color to every meal.

    (And as for the jalapeno recipes, I am at a loss. They aren't very readily available in the UK unfortunately.)

  11. Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my favorite movies! Glad to hear you're feeling better xo

  12. I love your images. The skull with the pearls is gorgeous.
