TWTW - how is it already the end of July?

1. Friday night: zucchini taco boats, gelato in the comfort of our own home, relaxing.
Gus works out. Don't all dogs?
2. Saturday morning Farmers' Market haul:
 
3. We enjoyed a day at the races at Monmouth Park with Chris and Diana. Click here to see yesterday's post on it. 
4. We were going to attempt a pop in at The Stone Pony, but it was insane. We drove through to Belmar to take a little walk along the shore and have dinner. We were home an hour later. It was a really nice day. 
6. Morning coffee Saturday / Sunday:
7. Weekly food prep - egg muffins using leftover base of Friday night tacos for breakfast. Cheesey enchilada quinoa for lunches. A fresh, light, simple cold pasta salad for Sunday and Monday. Baked chicken and veggies for other weeknight dinners.
8. Sunday night I headed up to Whippany, NJ, with my brother Stephen and his friends Jared & BJ to see our brother Sean play in the U-23 NPSL semi-finals for the NY Red Bulls vs Lansing United from Michigan. Sean scored off a corner to give the Red Bulls a 1-0 lead and his teammate scored to make it 2-0. The Red Bulls advance to the NPSL final game next weekend. Laura and Chris brought the boys and it was great to see them on an impromptu visit. Laura and I have watched many many many soccer games together in our time. I got home at around 10:45, late for a Sunday, but I'm glad I was there!

Other things, not pictured: hausfrauing, finishing a book, contemplated weeding but decided not to, Geege and Mae losing their shit over Sunday night thunderstorms meaning no sleep for the rest of us.

  3. Y'all are so cute at the race! And those egg muffins look good but I think I've been ruined for eating eggs indefinitely since the last time I ate some I was ill. :(

  4. I may need to try your zucchini taco boats (and by "try" I mean insist my husband cooks them as to not waste food by me burning it). I keep seeing that gelato and wanting to try it but I go for something else instead. NEXT TIME.

  5. Whippany? You were basically in my backyard. Talenti gelato is the best, especially the sea salt caramel flavor.

    Also, recipe for that enchilada quinoa?

  9. That brand gelato PLUS the flavor are like crack to me, lol. Your weekend looks fun! We have a rache track here in Tampa, buttttt it's not as fun and get dressed up as you would think/want it to be.

  10. Beautiful pictures and a lovely weekend. Sean was so happy that you and Stephen were there! Great seeing Laura and family, too. So happy. I am happiest when my people are happy. So many wonderful experiences we have.
    The race track looked like fun, but Belmar really appealed to me being so close to us. We need a day trip there!
    I am surprisingly chipper, too, on very little sleep. Goddess speed to you for a nice, easy week!
    Love Your MOMMA

  12. I love that Talenti flavor, it's my fave followed closely by Southern Butter Pecan. But I really can't buy it because I will straight up eat the whole thing in 2 sittings. And that is forcing myself to break it into 2 because the label says so.

  13. Mae's buggy eyes in that picture are too freaking cute!!! I always see people posting pictures of the Caramel Sea Salt gelato and I always pick it up at Target when I am grocery shopping...but make myself put it back. I assume it is probably totallyl worth the splurge....but I am afraid if I do it once it will become a weekly thing. Like damn cheeseburgers.

  14. Zucchini boats are MY FAVORITE!!!! Sometimes we slice them into RINGS, and stuff the middles.. makes them look FANCY SCHMANCY!

    And your weekend looked SO FUN!
    When you said NY Red Bulls.. I had a moment.. because I am a NY'er... and I realize.. We are not so FAR from each other! OH an east coast (almost) tri-state area blogger! We are few and far between lady!!!!

    Have a wonderful week!

  15. The food prep is way too perfect. We really need to start doing that but are working on not being so lazy first. Talenti is our favorite gelato (in a jar)!!

  17. OMG, I'm loving the food prep. Get it, girl! That gelato is seriously amazing... I wish it wasn't so expensive, but it's good!

  18. That's a solid weekend right there!! We've slacked on our food prepping the past couple of weeks so I need to sit down tonight and hash out a plan. Football season around the corner means more madness- if I don't have a meal plan I will eat EVERYTHING in sight ;)

  19. Your weekends always look so fun! Going to a horse race at least once in my life is on my bucket list!

    The zucchini taco boats look crazy good--I've never seen anything quite like those.

  30. Those zucchini boats look sooo delicious! I have a recipe that I have meant to post for quite some time but haven't done it yet. Maybe I will get on it. The week's meals look good too - especially the gelato (even though it's not part of the week meals)
