My Favourite Pins This Week
With the warmer weather coming, I’m liking the idea of cooler dinner and lunch ideas, and this garden veggie chickpea sandwich is perfect. Basically, the premise is a wonderfully tasty chickpea salad smushed between two slices on your favourite bread. Talk about easy! And there’s no rule saying it has to be this exact salad (although it is easy, healthy, and I’m personally a fan), it could be any type of salad – Although I speak from experience when I say that couscous salads are better in flatbread wraps than between two slices of bread.

Healthy(ier) high protein lemon bars! I love lemony desserts, and these are super easy to make. The crust recipe is a good one, but if you want to cheat and use graham crumbs and butter like I did, you will get no judgement from me. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe is here.
This was a fascinating tutorial on how to knit a shawl with a cabled twist edge. If you are thinking of modifying a shawl, or looking to design your own, I highly recommend the tutorial! Such a great idea. Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.

There’s something a little magical in a fashion upcycle that actually manages to make small yellow pom poms sewn onto a top look really quite wonderful. I love this whimsical and surprisingly chic mimosa flower detail on a striped top!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. I hope that you have great weather, a few laughs, and get your craft on. My hand is healing up, I think I can stop wearing the splint soon- very excited!
