Cuteness from Whole Foods Market 1

Who doesn’t love shopping at Whole Foods? The veggies are divine, fish is abundant (and for land locked Denver, that is essential), excellent quality and it’s just an overall fun shopping experience. Today, while shopping for our dinner tonight~fish and various veggies, I found this super dooper cute re-usable shopping bag. I thought how adorable it will look in my Airstream one day. Think I’ll go back and get a couple more. Only $0.99 each.

Vintage Airstream 1969 Overlander Reply

I could barely believe my eyes when I saw this stunner of a Glamper! This Airstream is a 1969 Overlander gutted and renovated by Rachel Horn and Justin Kreizel of Rachel Horn Interiors. The 180 sq ft. trailer was found on Craiglist for $5,000. From what I read, they went “way, way over” the $20,000 renovation budget. Looks to me like it was worth every cent! Many parts were purchased from Vintage Trailer Supply of Montpelier, Vermont.

And guess what, it’s for sale!!!!

The New York Times also caught on and wrote an article about this beauty ~

Silver Trailer 2

A few weeks ago I was perusing LinkedIn and found a potential new contact. Her name is Kristiana Spaulding and I knew she had some connection with Airstreams. After all, her company is named “Silver Trailer“! So, we linked together, I visited her website and we chatted a bit. I was instantly in awe. Not only does Kristiana design stunning sterling silver jewelry and accessories, she owns a caravan of Vintage Airstreams that she restyles and rents for special events and photo shoots. Kristiana is an interior designer of Airstreams for her clients and for her own fleet. How cool is that? Her passion for Airstreams started when she was 7 years old and that devotion has developed into a fabulous career. Below are some of Kristiana’s beloved Airstreams and luxe Airstream inspired jewelry. Enjoy!

Fish Piccata, Grilled Asparagus and Lemon Infused Angel Hair Pasta 2

I adore this meal. Well balanced, delicious and easy on the wallet. It’s so simple to prepare and will surely make a fish lover out of anyone who isn’t. Try it for your next dinner party or a simple meal at home. Prep time is about 10 minutes and cook time is 10-15 minutes. Serves 4.

Fish Piccata

Ingredients
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
4 fish fillets (we use Alaskan Turbot, Sole or Tilapia)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup white wine
2 lemons, juiced
2 tablespoons capers
2-3 tablespoons butter
Fresh parsley, chopped (about 2-3 tablespoons)

Directions
Blot the fish dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Dredge the fillets in the flour, shaking off the excess. Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Saute the fish in the oil for about 4 minutes, flipping halfway through. Note: Turbot is thicker than sole or tilapia, so I saute the turbot fillets longer. Remove the fish to a serving platter. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, whisking for about a minute. Add the lemon juice, capers, butter and whisk all together. Pour liquid over the fish and garnish with lots of fresh parsley.

Grilled Asparagus

Ingredients
1 bunch asparagus, cleaned and ends cut off
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon butter
salt and pepper

Directions
Place asparagus, olive oil and butter in a pan that can be used on your grill. Start the asparagus at high heat in the pan on the grill, rotating periodically, approx. 2 minutes. Remove the asparagus from the pan and gently place each spear on the grill, browning on one side, turning once and browning remaining side, approx. 1 minute on each side. Pull asparagus spears off the grill and put back in the pan, salt and pepper to taste.  Serve immediately.

Lemon Infused Angel Hair Pasta

Ingredients
1 box angel hair pasta
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon, zested
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Parmesan, grated
Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish

Directions
Cook the angel hair pasta per the package instructions. When the pasta is almost done, heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat and add the lemon zest, salt and pepper and cook for about 1 minute. Drain the pasta reserving about 1/4 cup cooking water (you may not need this). Remove the infused oil from the heat, add the pasta and toss to coat (add some of the cooking water if needed). Toss pasta with Parmesan cheese and freshly chopped parsley.
