I had the weirdest dream last night!
I dreamed that I went to eat at JESSE JAMES restaurant (??) and he was trying to impress me with his food so I didn’t write negatively about him on the blog. :mrgreen: I ordered a side salad to go with my meal and he brought out this HUGE salad as big as the table and I thought to myself, ‘This doesn’t make what you did right!’. :mrgreen: So weird, eh? haha. I did sleep a bit better though…fell asleep by 12:30.
Moving along to dinner last night…
I’m not one for really drinking much wine at home, but I do love a glass here and there on occasion! And vacation is certainly an occasion.
I love salt and pepper shakers in Corona bottles. So beachy!
My mom took a casserole recipe from a magazine and tweaked it a bit.
I actually thought that it required a lot more tweaking, but the only thing we did was sub the egg for 1/4 cup silken tofu and not use Parmesan Cheese. My mom was nervous about it not turning out but I was like, ‘Piece of cake!!’ ;) I guess I am just used to completely over-hauling recipes now! I forget there was a time when I used to be terrified to divert off the recipe.
The outcome was awesome.
With mashed potatoes and veggies:
Swiss Chard. My mom crushed some crackers over top of it and it gave it a really nice texture.
My plate (sorry it came out blurry)- Swiss chard, potatoes, veggies, casserole. I had second helpings of the casserole, chard, and mixed veggies.
Dessert was a delicious…errr…Mac apple…and half a grapefruit…
And dark chocolate :mrgreen:
We all watched some of the new show ‘Life’ on the Discovery Channel. It reminded us a lot of the Planet Earth series.
Then Eric and I headed out for a walk around 10pm! The rain stopped and it was a lovely warm evening.
We were pumped to take the SLR out for some night photography- one of our favourite things to do when traveling. We took over 400-500 pictures a day on each day of our 2 week honeymoon in 2008!!
Don’t mind the creepy man behind the park bench… ;)
I was on high alert for creepy crawlies. Eric kept grabbing me and yelling ‘SNAKE!!!’ He scared the @^^@#$^&^@& out of me! lol. Not cool hubby.
This reminded me of the showers in CHEMISTRY class in case you got chemicals in your eyes or something. I was always scared of them!
Community pool. Eric tried to throw me in, but my MacGyver skills out wit his attempts.
When we got back we watched Jamie Oliver’s new show called Food Revolution. I really admire what he is doing. It is really hard to change a system that is so set in its’ ways, but I think he will do a great job. It just takes time. It is so weird having CABLE TV to watch here. We don’t have cable at home and I miss out on so many cool shows.
Our plans for the morning include SUPER TARGET…
I got super pumped when I saw a Target commercial on TV last night!
Thanks for all of your comments in my quiz last night! We had fun reading your opinions!! Yes, the 4 of us read through the comments together around the table and giggled. ;)
What was your least favourite class in high school?
Mine was definitely CHEMISTRY. I was pretty much useless in that class and had no interest in mixing chemicals and memorizing the periodic table.
What about your most favourite?
My favourite high school course was definitely a creative writing course that I took in my last year. My teacher, Mr Pearce, asked us to keep a journal that we could decorate and do anything we wanted in it. It was so much fun…I had magazine collages, quotes, poems, random thoughts, personal stories. He would write really nice notes in it that were so encouraging. I really need to dig that up and look at it! I would love to start a journal again actually.
I am currently sipping on this and then we are going to have breakfast followed by some Target and a lunch out. Eric’s worst nightmare is a long shopping trip so he might sit this one out. ;)
I’ll be back later today. Have a great start to your week!
