Wallflower Weekly Finds, 91

This weekend is going to be another activity filled weekend. One of my friends is getting married on Saturday evening. Then another friend wants to celebrate her birthday at Trapped in a Room with a Zombie, one of those Escape Room games. I’m hoping I won’t get nightmares from being chased by a zombie. Has anyone ever played those real life Escape Room puzzle games? I’ve never been, and I’m oddly nervous about it. lol

Also, before I forget, you’ll want to come back on Saturday! This Saturday will officially be three years since I started this blog!


Have you ever gone to the farmer’s market, browse the stalls, and realize that there are some vegetables or fruits that you’ve never seen at the supermarket before?

Think pineapple guava, feijoa blossoms, romanesco, and all those varieties of apples, pears, and peaches that go beyond the few that you see at the grocery store.

I’ve decided that when I come across a new vegetable or new fruit, I’m going to give it a try. Might as well, right? I’m not as adventurous about meat. I only eat the ones I’ve eaten before. But new vegetables and fruits? Definitely.

So you as you can probably tell, romanesco will appear on the blog sometime soon =)


I stumbled across Chip and Joanna Gaines’ The Magnolia Story earlier this week and simply loved reading their story. It’s easy to read and I feel that you get to experience their story firsthand.

I also got a hold of the premier issue of Magnolia Journal.

Can you tell that I’m a fan?

In this week’s finds…


You guys, I am so excited for Thanksgiving, and I’m already brainstorming for ideas for dinner.

Here are a few that I’m really tempted to make:


This Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin Beignets. Omg! Omg! I can’t even! I haven’t had a beignet in nearly a year. I need this in my life, like, ASAP!

Pumpkin Ricotta Gnocchi with Vanilla Brown Butter. Sounds soo tempting!

It’s been so chilly lately! So I would love to indulge in this Thai Pomegranate Chicken Khao Soi Noodle Soup. Sounds soo comforting.

You know how I’ve been obsessed with Dutch Baby pancakes? This sweet potato pie dutch baby sounds so delicious.

This creamy tomato penne pasta with jalapeno poppers sounds like the perfect weeknight dinner.

Oh, you know, since I’m obsessed with bowl foods, this Detox Moroccan Spiced Chickpea Glow Bowl sounds soo amazing.

These rollos de los muerto (rolls of the dead) look soo gorgeous.

    Farmer’s markets are always a blast. I just took the plunge and tried romanesco for the first time last week in a stir fry (normally I use broccoli for that stir fry). I look forward to seeing what you will do with it. You always inspire me in the kitchen. 🙂

    whoooo going on three years, that’s awesome lady! Also, real-life escape rooms are the BEST. I can’t vouch for the zombie one (we were thinking about it, but not very seriously haha because it sounds terrifying), but the room itself is going to be a blast. I’d totally recommend setting up a preliminary trial for a regular room first if you have time between now and then, because it’ll help you figure out how to navigate the escape room vibe, but otherwise just enjoy yourself!!

      Oh my god! The zombie one does sound kinda terrifying. I’m fine with playing House of the Dead because it’s a video game, but I’m not so into haunted house as much. Hopefully it’s not going to be too scary or such a big distraction for the game. Otherwise, I’m guaranteed to fail. lol
