Thank goodness for the fire, it was COLD this weekend!
So, I didn't get all my exciting life posted over the weekend. I'm sure you were going through withdrawals wondering what in the world I was up to. AND with good cause, I was a busy gal!
Saturday brought a girlfriends birthday party! We had fun eating, shopping and playing. Susan is 29 AGAIN!!!!
I always have a blast with these girls!
I made a GREAT tasting smoothie Friday night and before you point it out to me, I know that it was supposed to have blueberries, but I didn't have any and didn't want to go to the store! It was YUMMY! From the Easy Vegan Meals by SparkPeople: The No-Stress, No-Guilt WAy to Reap the Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet by Stepfanie Romine.
When I got home and got settled, I was exhausted, so Brian and Bill treated me to dinner! Nice way to end the day! I did manage to get the Corn and Zucchini Muffins made before I collapsed! These are from The New Glucose Revolution Low GI Cookbook by Dr. Jennie Brand Miller, Kaye Foster-Powell, Kate Marsh, and Phillipa Sandall.
They weren't the prettiest things in the world, but they are TASTY!!! Just a little dab of Earth Balance and I was good to go!
Sunday we woke up to a foggy day, it was pretty cool looking outside. It almost looked like smoke rolling through!
We brought Judy home for the day, so I made Corn Chowder. That is one of my favorite cold weather soups. I tried the new recipe (to me) from Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook by Kim Barnouin. It was crazy good. I did add in a little spinach at the end, but sooo good and just perfect for the cooler weather we are having! I added in one of the corn muffins and that was a great meal!
When we got home last night, we walked in to the COLDEST house! We didn't even think about turning on the furnace. It was a bit brisk to say the least, but Nick and Lauren came by and we had a late dinner with them and were able to enjoy their company! I had to tell them about the conversation Brian and I had.
Me: Brian, you look really handsome today.
Brian: Thanks, you looked really good yesterday.
Me: WHAT???? I look horrible today?
Brian: oh no,uhmmm, I mean......big smiles......
So it was a GREAT weekend, busy, but that is okay!
