A few weeks ago we went to New York for the week-end. On Sunday afternoon we were walking in Soho and ended up in what I think was a pop-up shop of the Brooklyn Market…I don’t know exactly but it was such a nice place with artisans of all kinds. I totally fell in love with the products from Lovewild Design. Take a look their website. You will totally love the style and … the products.
First, I found the watercolor temporary tattoos. What’s not to love about temporary tattoos? I have to say they are not only super cute but also of a very good quality. My son has his since 2 weeks and it still looks good!!
What I ABSOLUTELY want to share with you is the vegetarian dinner dice. Yes. Dice that help you decide what you’ll eat for dinner. Isn’t it nice?
Yesterday, we were having friends over for dinner and I was SUPER excited to try the dice. Since I was volunteering all day, I wasn’t in the mood to organize a big dinner. On Friday night I had a lot of fun at the market to find ALL the ingredients on the dice. Some were very usual on my list and some other I never bought (turmeric, okra, bok choy, watercress). In fact, I didn’t even know what an okra looked like…. But I found it!
Here are the ingredients we got on our first dinner with the dice:
Chickpea, soy sauce, mint, paprika, potato, tomato, asparagus, and watercress.
Here is what the menu looked like:
- Chips of potatoes with paprika in the oven.
- Asparagus in the oven.
- Chickpea balls with soy sauce, paprika served with a plain yogurt sauce and mint.
- Watercress and tomato salsa
It was so good and so much fun! Not to mention that the guys were super happy to have potatoes for dinner (so we asked them to prepare them).
Since I bought absolutely all the ingredients (6 ingredients per dice, 8 dice), I think we will play the dice every night of the week 😉
I found it was a fun way to organize dinner with some guest. And for my family, it will be a good way to eat healthier and to add new ingredients to the menu.
