I am still weekending, but I thought I would keep to my regular posting schedule. I am linking up here with the gals at Hello Monday if they are here today.
Let’s go back to Friday night. We were invited to get takeout and eat at my friend’s house with our little group – my two college besties and their husbands. I had not seen them since mid-November in person. Two of them have had the virus and two of them had the first dose of the vaccine a week ago. But, I was still careful. My friend spread us out by couple and I wore my mask when not eating.
I ordered a cheeseburger salad and it was so good! I forgot to take a photo of the dressing. It tasted like Big Mac special sauce.
Saturday morning I went to Fresh Market and found my green chilies!
And, I ran to Kroger to do a return (Clicklist gave me something that was totally wrong) and to get a few more things I needed. I had done my Clicklist on Wednesday.
I found this street taco kit marked down to $5!
I started this book. I did not finish my last book; it was really dragging.
And, then my kids were home for the long weekend! We ate lunch and we watched some Gilmore Girls. They enjoyed spending time together. Then, we streamed Mason’s play. They had to record it and wear masks while recording. During the introduction I started crying because a senior girl was saying she wished they had an audience and it just made me so sad. I miss live theatre, live music, movies in the theater, not having to be so careful around people, and more… I am usually really positive, but there are times when it just hits me.
We got this picture of cousins watching it, too.
Mason did such a good job and this was his first play ever! He is in another one in February.
We had off and on snow both days. Sunday morning the boys slept in and I enjoyed the snow,
watched Sex and the City while
doing some meal prep. Here are my breakfasts.
Then, Tom and I went out in the snow to check out a new to us store, @home.
I wore my yellow Hunters and brought some coffee.
I was underwhelmed. It is a huge store. We left empty handed.
For Soup Sunday, I did the famous tortellini soup that you may have heard of. I have made it a few times, but this time changed it up a bit. I used a carton of chicken broth, two cans of tomatoes – one had basil, garlic, and italian seasonings, sausage (about half of the amount), one block of cream cheese (the recipe I had called for 3!), and a big container of spinach.
It calls for the cheese filled tortellini, but I decided to do this fun noodle and keep the noodles on the side.
Yum! It is so good! I put it in containers for lunches this week.
The boys and I watched some more Gilmore Girls, we ate dinner as a family with Tom (he won’t watch GG, but he will watch football!), and the boys hung out and did some homework. We also got Blizzards from Dairy Queen.
The boys head back to campus this afternoon and I will be sad again. I think the winter is just hard. There is not much to do! I need to work on a list, I think. Are you having the same troubles with winter?
Also, I have not been very motivated to do my 30 Bags in 30 Days, but I hope to tackle some areas today.
I enjoyed having my Valentine’s decor up this weekend. I’m glad I put it up last week.
Hope you are still weekending, too!
