Why do weekends always seem to go by so quickly??? Too quickly.
I discovered something yummy this weekend. Probably something I shouldn’t have discovered. But I’ll share it with you anyways. Well, it’s more like a confession of sorts. I dunked these Anna’s Thins into my coffee and it was really yummy! When I was a kid, I used to dunk cookies in milk. But I don’t drink milk anymore. So I really haven’t dunked anything in a long time. I don’t know what possessed me to dunk the cookie in my coffee, but oh what a treat it was!! Now I can’t buy those Anna’s cookies anymore.
On Saturday night, one of Luke’s friends was spending the night. Normally we do a pizza for a sleepover, but instead I decided to do Meatloaf. But this special meatloaf tastes like a pizza!!
Here’s a picture of the 12-year old recipe. When we worked at First Union Securities together back in the day, my friend Chris wrote down this recipe for me. When I got it out on Saturday night, I realized it had been a long time since I spoke to her. So I texted her just to say hi. We worked side by side for 11 years up til last year. And I’ve hardly talked to her this past year. It’s sad when close friends drift apart.
In case you can’t read that, here’s the recipe:
Thankfully my daughter was feeling a bit better this weekend. She loved her some comfort food – meatloaf, mashed potatoes and cornbread!!
There were veggies too …. broccoli and cauliflower, just none made it onto her plate.
The boys LOVED it!!!! They cleaned their plates, even the broccoli and cauliflower.
So remember all those home remedies I told you about in my last post? Well, they didn’t work on Saturday night. She woke up crying about 5 times between midnight and 3:30am. Finally at 3:30am, I took her downstairs and stayed up with her. It was the perfect opportunity to catch up on Revenge. I’d heard a lot of people talking about this show, but I didn’t start it last year when it came out and now it’s in the Second season. But guess what?!? Season One is on Netflix!! If you have Netflix, I highly recommend you start from Episode 1. It is SUCH a good show!! I am totally hooked! I’m almost done with the first season. Now I need to figure out how to catch up on Season 2.
So Sunday was more or less a rest day. I still managed to get some cleaning done. And some laundry. Nothing too crazy. Bathrooms require more energy than I had yesterday so those did not get done.
I did enjoy a yummy lunch with my leftover salmon. I threw it on a bed of spinach with some mushrooms, carrots, grape tomatoes, red peppers, feta cheese and jalapenos, topped with sriracha sauce (of course). It was delicious!
After a nice nap, I bundled up the babe and took her for a walk in the neighborhood.
Yeah, she doesn’t look sick, does she???
And when we got back, we all enjoyed some warm beverages. Hot chocolate for the kids and hot tea for me. With marshmallows of course!
Questions of the Day: 1) What food do you serve at sleepovers?? 2) Have you watched Revenge? 3) And what is your favorite hot beverage??
