the weekend that was

Kicked the weekend off by cleaning up dog puke. It can only go up from there.

The perp

Checked out new furniture at Aubrey & Stephen's place, then Aubrey and I headed to the Langhorne to hang out with the Neshaminy Soccer Alumni Golf Outing revelers. I had two beers, caught up with friends, and acted as designated driver for the Northeast Philly contingent.
No booze = no hangover. Hurrah.

+

I was up late, so I slept in. So did the dogs.


+

I got these reusable cups for the Keurig, after a glowing review from my aunt and uncle. 
Fabulous fabulous fabulous. And no waste. Get some. 
Bacon talk...
I prefer to make it in the oven. No fuss or mess or burns from splatter.
I line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, put the bacon on it, and put it in a cold oven.
Turn the oven to 400, and take it out in 18-20 minutes.
Then we eat it like wild jackals and it's gone in 30 seconds. 


+

One of my favorite things: open windows. 
I love air conditioning, because I hate being hot, 
but I really hate having the house closed up any time of the year.
Throwing the windows open makes my soul sing.

+

I cleaned like a whirling dervish so we could get out and enjoy the weather. 
I spent more than six hours poolside at Mom's, hanging with Stephen and Aub and friends, reading magazines, minding dogs, and staring at the puffy clouds. It was lovely. 


+

More hausfrauing at home - laundry, dishes, food prep. 
Then MFD handed me Wawa mac & cheese, and I stopped doing everything.


+

Wedding: Impossible. I love Robert Irvine. 

+

Sunday marked 40 years of marriage for my in-laws. Happy anniversary Mr. & Mrs.!


+

Pasta salad with a little homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

+

I spent the afternoon at Mom's - I was there Saturday, but she wasn't, so we caught up.
Meem and her girls stopped by on their way to a wedding in Newtown.
I painted my nails, then me, Mom, Rich and Debbie had a cocktail and shot the shit.


+

Few things smell better than a cake baking. I made 7Up Cake (not from scratch).
I also made spinach and pepper jack cheese stuffed chicken breasts.
And the world rejoiced.


+

Dog happiness is dinner time.


+

Biloxi Blues.
Man, it's hot. It's like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot. 
Christopher Walken is awesome as always:
"Selridge, you would need three promotions to get to be an asshole." 
That's a great line. I should use it more often.

Catching up on Chopped Grill Masters with a side of the Sunday night blues

  3. Could not agree with you more...Need/love A/C because I am a MONSTER in the heat... Yet nothing is more enjoyable then being able to open the windows and usher fresh air in.

    Hope all is well. That chicken looks amazing as well.
