I’m so lucky (and thankful) that my family doesn’t mind eating from TV trays in the living room when they come and visit us for dinner.
We had a full
house living room last night, thanks to the company of mom, dad, Little Bro, and Meegs (aka, my ice cream buddy) and enjoyed a nice, simple dinner of grilled burgers and hot dogs, French fries, and corn on the cob. Definitely a true summer meal that I can remember from growing up.
I opted for a cheeseburger topped with provolone, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, and some sautéed peppers and onions (from the garden!), along with some fries and corn.
It may not have been quite as good as last weekend’s burger, but it was goooood.
I hadn’t prepared anything for dessert (GASP!) but Meg pulled through for me and brought over an amazing “Fruit of the Forest” pie from Grandma’s.
It was filled with a bunch of fruits (I think I saw blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and apples) and it blew my mind. So, so good!
While the fam was over, we spent the evening watching some of the Olympics and chatting about our upcoming weekend trip to Wildwood. I’m so looking forward to going back again (and not having to ride a ferry to get there) and hitting up my favorite ice cream place EVER. Wheeeee!
This morning was a pancake kinda morning.
I prepped and cooked up a batch of Kodiak Cakes and topped them with some peanut butter, banana slices, and maple syrup.
I also threw a few banana slices right into the ‘cakes for good measure.
Definitely a delicious way to start the day!
Once this all settles, I’m planning on hitting up the treadmill for some read and walk intervals while finishing up the last two chapters of my Fifty Shades. (Mom brought over book three last night, so I’m all set!) After that, I mayyyyy just have to head out to check out a fun new store that opened today. Remember how excited I was back in December? Well…it’s finally here! Squeeeeel!
