How was your weekend? I hope it was good! I’m linking up with Heather, etc. so go here to see other posts.
Thursday evening I started my weekend by going to an outdoor shopping center that has music every Thursday. It was a beautiful evening.
We ordered sangria which was delicious and a blackberry pomegranate something which was really salty and just bad. Because it was $12, we told our server and he got us a different drink, which honestly wasn’t really an improvement. Maybe I’m a tough critic, but my drinks are so much better!
We sat on the patio at Mitchell’s Fish Market, which is a chain. Do you have one?
We tried the crab, spinach, artichoke dip. It was just o.k.
This was a strawberry mule. It tasted like an air freshener smells.
Friday night we just stayed in and I made a Greek version of the Southwestern bowl I told you about here on Friday in my Favorites. I did Mediterranean beans from Trader’s, hummus, corn, cucumbers, tomato, feta, chicken and shrimp, and I didn’t have tzatziki sauce so I made a little dill mayo sauce. It was really good.
I finished this book below and really liked it. I think you can consider it a Young Adult book because the main character is 18. It involves Spain so I loved it. However, there were several Spanish mistakes and I really wanted to get out my red pen!
Now, I’m reading this cute book. I may have already read it years ago but I can’t remember! Oops! Do you ever do that?
Saturday we woke to more rain. Our river is too high to go boating now, too. I treated myself to a local coffee, Heine Brothers.
My boys had a friend over and I made what I call “Teen Charcuterie”.
We stayed in again Saturday night because of the boys’ friend. They ate dinner and then went to an ice cream parlor. They walked because it turned out to be nice out. We don’t leave when our kids have friends over. We trust our boys, but feel like it’s our responsibility to stick around. Are you like that?
I have no good pictures from Sunday! I did a Costco run, took the boys’ friend home after I made them lunch, and just did a few little things around the house. And, then around 4, it rained and stormed again! And, we had the tornado sirens going off.
I hope you have a great Monday and thanks for reading!
