Can I just say I am totally in a kiwi phase right now? They are just so amazing, and full of so many good things! Like fiber, Vitamin C (273% of your recommended daily amount!), Vitamin K (for your blood coagulation), potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and they are a fat-free source of Vitamin E! I need more of them in my life.
And, they are so so pretty on the inside!
I admit, the skin kinda used to freak me out. But now I prefer to just eat them straight up like an apple – the skin has so many nutrients and most of the fiber! I want to try this and this. Droooool.
Now that you know all about my love for kiwis, let’s recap the weekend. My weekend was pretty low key and involved lots of coffee, per usual.
We had a mini pizza party this weekend and celebrated a friend’s birthday! My friend, Deb, has a brick oven, and hosted us for some tasty weekend treats.
All of the pizzas came out so good! We had a balsamic roasted apple one, with caramelized onions, mushrooms and blue cheese (my favorite!), a potato pizza with red onions and a spicy chipotle drizzle, a meat lovers’, and an alfredo cheese with steak, brie and peppers. Naturally, I had one of each.
And the hosts let us try some of their home-made wine. Score!
I snapped a picture with the lady of the night – the mind behind the pizzas and the birthday gal.
And, to top the weekend off, we were able to live-stream one of my brother’s live performances. He is in a band in Nashville, so I can’t make many of his shows, unless he is in the Charlotte area. We were able to email in requests, and watch his show live out by the campfire. Perfection.
You should check him out on Youtube, iTunes or spotify!
