Hi all! Hope you’ve all had a great Sunday. Can’t believe the weekend is already over, though. Nuts! I enjoyed a pretty low key day….just what the doctor ordered. It all started out with a great breakfast;
- 1/2 cup water/USAB
- 1/3 cup sunrise blend with quinoa
- dried blueberries
- carob chips
Delicious! We spent some time out at the farm this morning. I visited with the baby horses for a bit while my hubby helped my in laws with some settings on their computer. On the way home we stopped at Knapps Country Market for a strawberry/rhubarb/peach pie;
I haven’t had a piece yet, but I’m sure it’s going to be wonderful! I also bought some cashew butter which I used in my lunch. I toasted a WW bagel and spread some on top. On the side was some watermelon chunks;
I didn’t want too heavy a lunch because we had dinner plans at Mom’s place for Lisa’s b-day. After I ate I went down to the garden to pick some veggies. I have SO MANY tomatoes coming! I think I’ll have to bring some to work for people to take home with them because I’m sure I’ll never get through them all. Check out what I picked!
There’s probably triple this still on the plants that aren’t quite ripe yet. And I do believe that this will be the last zucchini of the year. The plants are starting to yellow and look generally unwell. Typical for when the season is done.
The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing and blowing my nose. I swear it’s like a tap today but I’ll take it as a sign that this cold is starting to break up. *relief*
At 4 we made our way to the ‘rents place. I was teasing Lisa that her birthday has turned into “Lisa-Fest: A 3 Day Event”! :D She had a good laugh over that! Mom put out a fantastic spread. Here’s my plate;
Grilled zucchini, flank steak, pork tenderloin, potato salad, bulgur & bean salad, roasted cherry tomatoes. All super tasty. I never even got to the buns and garden salad….had to save room for dessert. Drumstick Cheesecake!!!
A scrumptious mix of cream cheese, Cool Whip. chocolate sauce, PB, Crispy Crunch Bar, crushed chocolate chip cookies to name a few! This beauty makes an appearance at all b-day’s around our family. After dinner my Dad pulled out my uncles old accordion from when he was a kid so he could bring it home with him. The kids were very intrigued by the strange instrument and both had a go at it!
You can see by DD’s face that she was supremely confused!!
I spent some time talking to my bestie when we got home. She became a third time Auntie this morning and is quite pleased about it! I was happy to hear the good news. Left to do tonight is lunches and preparing school bags for the morning. DD has cross country in the morning so we’ll need to leave the house a little earlier. Also, she starts dance class tomorrow night at 6:15. Oh, Mondays…..the joy!
Bye for now!!
