How was your weekend? Mine was good! I didn’t take many pictures, but here we go…
I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and others here.
If you were wondering if grocery shopping has changed since the college kids have been home, the answer is yes! I started my Friday (after coffee, exercise, and breakfast) with a massive grocery haul. I shopped myself rather than doing grocery pick up.
For lunch Friday, I tried cheeseburger salad with ground turkey and a “special” sauce made out of non-fat plain Greek yogurt. It was good – I had it again for dinner last night!
I started this on Friday and sadly, finished it on Saturday! It was the perfect summer read.
Tom is always tired on Friday nights so I was fine to make salad and pizza at home.
Saturday morning I enjoyed my iced coffee on the deck. I had already had my two hot coffees and breakfast. I do my iced coffee around 10.
And, Tom and I headed to the river.
We saw this guy on a foil surfboard. He controlled it with a handheld device.
We saw our friend and his daughter on their jet ski.
We got home around 4:00 and I got cleaned up and started cooking. We had our friends to the patio for dinner and I made aperol spritzs.
I tried Half Baked Harvest’s whipped ricotta toast with marinated tomatoes on some pieces and honey and strawberries on some pieces. I don’t think I will make it again. Goat cheese is better in my opinion. I don’t think I’m a ricotta person. I use cottage cheese for my lasagna because that is what Pioneer Woman does.
And, I made a spicy angel hair alfredo with chicken and mushrooms.
Tom talking with his hands. We stayed out and talked until almost 10.
Sunday morning we woke to some light rain. I had my coffee with my candle and read a bit – one of my favorite summertime things!
And, I started this right after Float Plan. It is so good! I can’t believe I have had two great summer reads this weekend.
Mason had friends over to play Dungeons and Dragons. Yes, both of my kids still play this – either online or in person. Tom also used to play in high school. To be funny, we used these school lunch trays and made a very basic kid meal (mac and cheese, frozen chicken nuggets, tater tots, grapes, and honey mustard and ketchup) for one of the guy’s birthdays. Mason also went up to Kroger and bought him a cookie cake.
Tom and I hung out on the patio after Tom did a ton of yard work and I did a ton of housework.
It was a full weekend!
How was yours? I hope it was wonderful!
