Well hello! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday. Ours has been pretty productive! I have lots of photos to share.
Starting with lunch yesterday. I threw together a fruity salad. In the mix:
- mixed greens
- feta cheese
The salad was topped with this gem of a balsamic vinegar. I was inspired while out in California by all of the tasty balsamic vinegar combinations, and spotted this one at Target, so I thought I would give it a go. It is Strawberry Basil by Archer Farms and it is really good!
I had to scarf down lunch, because apparently no matter how much time I give myself to get ready, I am almost always getting ready down to the very last minute.
After lunch, I headed off to a friend’s baby shower. She is due in April and looking great! It was great to see all of the ladies.
For dinner we met up with Dana’s mom and dad for dinner. It was a celebration for Sue and Dana’s birthdays, which are both coming up this week! We met at bd’s Mongolian Grill which has create-your-our own stir fry.
I opted to go for the vegetarian option today, but they do have a great assortment of meats if you would rather go that route: beef, chicken, turkey, crab, shrimp, scallops, etc.
Here is my bowl o’ veggies (and one lonely egg) before I brought it to the stir-fry men. I chose a teriyaki soy sauce blend with a little bit of garlic.
In the stir-fry mix: zucchini, broccoli, baby corn, water chestnuts, carrots, edamame, mushrooms, onions, bean sprouts, and an egg. I think that was everything in there. Oh, and sugar snap peas maybe. It was very delicious and so healthy. I felt just comfortably satisfied after I was finished.
We had a great time as always! After dinner we headed home to our big man who was very happy to see us. He was in need of a little attention.
Later I headed over to mom and dad’s and went for a walk with the little dog and my mama.
Although it was only about 26° out, there was no wind and the sun was out so it felt pretty nice. Aren’t they adorable?
This afternoon Dana and I ran a few more errands including some birthday boy shopping. Now we are home for the night, and contemplating having a fire in the fireplace. I have dinner simmering away in the crock pot and can’t wait to share this recipe with you tomorrow.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. That was the short and sweet version of mine. 🙂 Have a cozy night!
