the weekend that was

There was one lonely peep in that box, getting stale per MFD's preference

Food prep for the week, including new recipes (all clickable links):
mexican quinoa salad (I added more lime juice to taste and used tomatoes instead of corn), zucchini carrot bars with lemon cream cheese frosting (I used the zest of three small lemons in the icing), scalloped potatoes in the crockpot (I prefer them in the oven, these were just ok), and crispy greek yogurt baked chicken - make this. According to MFD, it was superb.

Not turning the TV on at all on Saturday


Hausfrauing, including rendezvousing with the dishwasher what seemed like 476 times

We spend a lot of time together


Going to three stores in search of the second Fifty Shades book with no luck.
Amazon, please be speedy.


A lovely time at Uptown Stringband's 75th Anniversary Party. The energy in the room was very positive. It was a happy night.  It was great to see so many good friends, reminisce about past shenanigans, and catch up on life.


Sucked into the timeless vortex of the Uptown clubhouse until after 4:30 a.m. laughing, singing, and carrying on, which we used to do every weekend of our youth.

Sunday spent talking, laughing our faces off, eating a LOT of bad delivery food, and watching the Flyers win with Frank, Amanda and MFD.
Yes, we ordered all of this for four of us. It took us an hour for Amanda and MFD to decide what they wanted...and 15 minutes for me to place the order, during which time I gave my debit card info 6 times for the lady to get it right. It was a comedy of errors.

I have an absolute screamer of a week this week. I will be out of the house from 6:30 a.m. until past 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Deliver me.

AND it's the last Monday of my Free Iced Coffee Mondays Dunkin Donuts card. I am bereft.

Looking for a quick, meatless weekday meal? Try this:

Adios, amigos.


  1. Godspeed to you again.
    I have DD coupons for you!
    love your MOMMA

  2. I seriously doubt that I have ever asked your Aunt Carrie to dig up a meatless recipe be it weekday or otherwise. That would be heresy, I say, heresy. Bet you never guess who this is.
