My Weekend in Tournaments

Hi!  Hope everyone is doing well!  I’ve been MIA from the blog world, but I’ve also been MIA from my house!  DS was in a soccer and hockey tournament this weekend so it was go, go, go.  We had hockey about 45 minutes away on Friday,  soccer an hour and a half away at 9:30 am, 12pm & 2pm on Saturday, then another hockey game an hour from where soccer was at 6pm.  This morning we were back up at 6am for another out of town, 8am hockey game.   Needless to say, I am in a zombie state right now.  LOL  I thought I’d just highlight a few eats and stick mainly to some pictures from the tournament. 
EATS-The good and bad in no particular order:
Wendy’s new Apple Pecan Chicken salad.  I ate this in the dark on the drive home last night at 9pm.  Even though I couldn’t see what was going in my mouth, I loved every bite!  Have you tried this salad yet??  Please check the link ^^ for a MUCH better photo!  ;)
French toast using multi grain bread Friday morning.
I made this delicious rice dish for dinner Thursday night using brown rice, corn and a mix of these 2 ingredients:IMG_3419 IMG_3420
The bean mix is from Wegmans and genius, IMO!
The kids are selling these chocolate covered almonds for a school fund raiser.  So far that’s the only box I’ve gotten into.  ;)
This above picture is one of the “bad” from the weekend.  Friday night we decided to try a new fish n’ chips place that was on our way home.  I’ve never been a fried food fan but hadn’t had fish n’ chips in years so went with it.  Blah, blah, blah!  Even my hubby was not impressed and commented that we’d all be fighting for the toilet in an hour’s time.  That didn’t happen, thank God, but we’ll not go back.  Oh!  Did I mention that it cost us almost $72.00 for the 4 of us???  Yeah, I know.  :/
Grande pumpkin spice misto between soccer games.
And some beautiful, firm, yet juicy, ruby red raspberries.  And now for some fun photos!

These next 2 are my ultimate favourite.  They were taken by a professional photographer (they’re usually at all hockey tournaments) and my hubby scanned them for me so I could share with you!  The one where he is practically sideways is a trip that drew a penalty.  Please let me know what you think!! 
And what kind of shenanigan’s do we get into while waiting for game time and/or food?  Let’s take a peek!IMG_3430 IMG_3433 IMG_3440 IMG_3451 IMG_3457 IMG_3463 IMG_3464
Have a great rest of the weekend, lovelies!  I’m due for a nap!  :)
Bye for now!!

    It's so great that DS got all the family to support him! He looks so happy! :)
