HELLO FRIENDS!!!! 🙂
I am so sorry for going completely m.i.a. today but phewwwww I was in the car from 8:30am til almost 4:30pm and finally got done with some grocery shoppin’ so let’s just say it was a longggg day!
Anywho, the trip was soooo much fun, it was absolutely wonderful to see my best college girlfriends and so much fun to remember old, crazy times! Of course, the winery and the farm were spectacular as well — added bonus!
Last night we had some grilled terryaki steak and grilled zucchini + olive bread to finish of the day. It was lovely! (sorry no pix, bad blogger 😉 )
Today’s ride home was good, no traffic which was amazingly awesome considering we were basically traveling down the whole north east coast via I-95 which is usually a freakin’ train (??) wreck of some sort!
Check out what Stine gave me from her garden too (ummm need any peppers haha?)
So now I have
- fresh “Stine picked” banana peppers
- fresh “Steph picked” string beans
- fresh “Steph picked” poblano peppers
- fresh “Steph picked” apples
Does life get any better? 😉
I decided to plan some meals this week around these guys…. had plenty of time in the car to do some note-taking, that’s for sure! Here is what’s on the meal agenda this week, which is going to be a very busy week for me so keeping it pretty simple this time around…..
- apricot curry pork chops + fresh picked NY green beans
- mexican tortilla “cups” with beans, cheese & salsa
- spanish rice with chicken & fresh picked NY poblanos covered in enchilada sauce
Think that should do! Apparently I am on a Mexican kick this week though?? And check out what I picked up for a fast din tonight (yea, this hardly ever happens but I am just not up to cooking tonight peeps, too tired :/)
Gonna top these bad boys with some salsa + sour cream to make ’em extra yummy 😛
Alright bloggie buddies… I gotta get to some laundry and some catchin’ up on what you fabulous peeps did this weekend too (hello google reader!) — I’ve missed you all 🙂
