Friday I helped one of my best friends move.
|Fortunately, she had movers so there wasn't much for us to do. But, moral support and all that. . .
Much of Saturday was also spent working as we went back into Mobile to help my parents paint our old house that needs to sell.
|Going West into Mobile there wasn't much traffic at all
We made it back to our side of Mobile Bay just in time to hang out with some friends at a bar-be-que and then went to check out another friend's new bar, Plow in Fairhope. It's awesome!
|The crew working at Plow Saturday night. Great bunch of guys!
After all that, Sunday was slow moving for us. We did make a run by the hardware store on our way down to the beach. Waiting until Sunday afternoon meant that we didn't get much of the traffic. The weather and water was perfect when we finally made it down there. Ahhhhhh.
|The water was so clear we could see fish and eagle rays without a problem.
On Monday, we took care of some tasks around the house. That meant another trip to the hardware store (wire for me!).
|I got the galvanized on Sunday and the copper Monday. It's some seriously huge gauge!
We ended the day by grilling up a healthy meal (there was some chicken involved too, but these veggies were so pretty!)
|There's mushrooms, squash, zucchini, orange bell pepper, onion, and garlic - all marinated. It was delicious.
We've got a shortened work week, but still plenty of busy-ness ahead. As such, the menu is a little scarce.
Breakfasts: Smoothies, Cereal, Toast w/avocado, Omelets, Blueberry waffles
Lunches: Soup & grilled cheese, Leftovers, Simple sesame noodles, bean burritoes, PB&J, Tuna Noodles, Cheese quesidillas
Grilled Chicken and veggie kabobs
Soup (from freezer)
Peanut butter tofu quinoa bowl with veggies (I'm making this one up and will report back)
Homemade pizza w/salad
I'm sharing this Menu Plan at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
Bowtie lasagna: This was SUPER easy and such a great recipe to add your own spin to. I personally added some diced onion with the ground beef. Pat absolutely loved this, and I found it pretty tasty too.
Baked sesame tofu sticks with PB, tahini, and ginger sauce: These turned out really well. I like how firm they came out and can see using them in other recipes. I messed up the sauce as I tried to use PB2 powder instead of natural Peanut Butter. So it was a little runny no matter what I tried to add to make it work. That was my own fault and not that of the recipe though. I will definitely make these again.
Now to jump on the rest of the to do list and get on with the week. Here's hoping your week is treating you well!
