I ate a lot this weekend, which is why I am calling this post "Weekend Bites".
I haven't dropped in and said hello since Wednesday night, so I'll catch ya up!
I also think it's ironic that I wrote a post on Wednesday about how I was addicted to blogging, and then I took three days off. Who am I?!?!
On Thursday, I had leftover pizza with baby carrots and grapes for lunch. I'm not sure why I need to include this photo, but I'm once again showing you my love of leftovers. And baby carrots and grapes.
For dinner, I got half of a Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich (from the menu: Zesty Peppadew™ piquant peppers, feta cheese, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cilantro jalapeno hummus on tomato basil bread) and a small Thai Chopped Chicken Salad (from the menu: antibiotic free chicken, romaine, wonton strips,a blend of fire-roasted edamame, red bell pepper and carrot tossed in a Thai chili vinaigrette. Topped with strips of seasoned grilled chicken, Thai cashews, fresh cilantro and peanut drizzle) .
For a side item, I had a choice of bread, a bag of chips or an apple. I chose an apple.
After that, my friend Ednalice stopped by my house. She was my best friend from my graduate school program, and we've stayed in touch. I haven't seen her in almost a year, so we had so much catching up to do. We don't stop talking when we get together, so I had a blast with her.
We went to Champps by my house and sat outside in the beautiful weather. We started with a pitcher of Summer Sangria.
To celebrate, we went to dinner at Cooper's Hawk. I mentioned it before when I went there a few months ago with my parents and Irene. They import their grapes and make their own wine. Don't let the imported grapes fool you; their wine is fabulous.
In true Cooper's Hawk style, we dispensed our wine from a decanter.
From the menu: Southwest chicken, corn and black bean relish, cilantro and trio of cheeses all wrapped up in an egg roll and served with tomatillo salsa, cilantro ranch dressing, cashew dipping sauce and Asian slaw.
From the menu: mini crispy white corn tortillas filled with citrus slaw, Srirahca, ceam, pico de gallo and sliced blackened Ahi tuna. Garnished with avocado, cilantro, and wisabi cream.
It's my brother's dog Libby! She's the one on the right.
Libby was not good about posing for the camera last night. My dad had to give her a hug to get her to stay in one place.
We invited some family over for lunch. There were lox (smoked salmon).
Happy (almost) Monday!
