Weekend links and my favourite photos of the week

Our long weekend plans changed somewhat when Danny sprained his ankle playing ultimate frisbee with his drop-in league. Thankfully, it’s not to serious, and we’ll just have to slow down a little to accommodate. Not necessarily a bad thing.

We have a giveaway winner! Congratulations to Julie who won two cookbooks from Catherine McCord of Weelicious. A big thank you to all who entered. Weelicious Lunches is released on Tuesday.

Hit the jump for my round up of weekend reading, plus my favourite iPhone photos of the week.

Weekend link love:

Also, my friend Vanessa is launching an e-course this month designed to help you shop, plan and cook healthy meals at home. You can learn more about the Healthful Home Cook by watching this super cute trailer with Vanessa.

So long August, hello September: iPhone photos of the week from the homestead.

Have a wonderful long weekend! We’ll be back with a great new lunchbox recipe on Tuesday.

    Your home is beautiful. It looks so peaceful there.

  2. So glad to see that Clara knows exactly what to do with a carrot. The kids next door to us don’t. They don’t know what to do with a pea pod either. Very sad for them. Go Clara!!

  3. Poor Danny! (But that’s awesome that he plays Ultimate.)

    Your backyard is beautiful, and your produce looks tasty!

  4. Aimée, I loved that kale article–thanks for bringing it to my attention!
    Hope your spouse recovers fully.
