Wallflower Weekly Faves, 17

My sister and I went to browse the Ferry Building in SF. We were addicted to the olive oil tasting at Stonehouse California Olive Oil. And ended up buying a spice blend so that we could make our own little bread and olive oil board at home. I think it needs to be replicated.

Olive Oil Tasting

Now that it’s summer, most local channels are playing reruns until fall. What are you watching these days?

I’ve been watching the Bachelorette. Well, sort of. The tv is on and I glance it every once in awhile. To be honest, I’d rather follow the runner up Bachelorette, Brittany, than the actual Bachelorette. However, there’s been so much drama in every episode that I can’t help watching in dismay. lol. Guilty pleasure.

I’ve been hooked on I Can Do That. Each week six celebrities have to train to do talent acts. For instance, they have to train to perform with the Blue Man Group or Jabbawockeez and perform. My favorite so far is this one with Airealistic.

    The strawberry recipe sounds interesting. I don’t like oatmeal but it sounds like the texture would be different. I appreciate your weekly lists.
