Sweet Grilled Garlic

I had a wonderful little Saturday yesterday.

I woke up early and hit the ground running for 5.3 miles. It was definitely not an easy run day for me, but I fought through to the finish.

After my run I showered up and headed to my great friend Haley’s baby shower. She is due at the end of May and looking FANTASTIC. We celebrated the soon arrival of the babe with great company, a couple of games, and nummy food. There were chicken shawarmas, veggies, fruit, chips, cheese, crackers, cupcakes, brownie cookie bars, etc! It was a dream world for me. Sorry I didn’t snap a photo. It was so good to see Hales. I miss her so!

Once I got home, it was time to get busy on finishing up the bathroom. Dana had been hard at work all day and the least I could do was hold the flashlight while he screwed in some fixtures and such.

Amidst the bathroom work was a little laundry folding, and a trip to Home Depot (whoopee exciting Saturday night, right?). At around 6:30 we figured we should probably start thinking about dinner. We ran to the grocery store to find something to grill and ended up buying two chicken breasts, two garlic cloves, and a whole grain baguette.

We threw those three items on the grill and wahlah…

A healthy grilled dinner.

For those of you who have never tried grilled garlic, you should probably try it. It is pretty amazing. Just cut the top off of the garlic bulb, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and a little salt and pepper, wrap up in tin foil and grill cut side up for about 20 minutes (depending on the size of the bulb and the heat of the grill). Unwrap them, squeeze the whole bulb of garlic to pop out the individual cloves. You are left with slightly sweet and buttery garlic cloves. Num.

For dessert, two pieces of Easter chocolates.

The rest of the night was spent relaxing, ordering some wedding photos for frames that are still naked around our house, and watching a couple of episodes of Modern Family.

That was quite the speedy recap of Saturday. It was pretty great though.

I am off for now. Tons to do around the house. Catch up with you later!
