TWTW - the last one in February

Two months of 2017 gone in a snap. I spent the last Friday night in February basking in the May-like air, starting a new book, and making a batch of power breakfast muffins to freeze and a vat of iced coffee in which I fucked up the ratio and had to process it further Saturday.
Saturday morning was spent at the Bucks County Women's Democratic Forum followed by quick stops at Target where I got a kickass sale on chicken and Produce Junction for this week's flowers. 
Weekly food prep: fried eggs and cheese on English muffins for breakfast; a cleaning out the pantry lunch made of ground beef with onions, rice, rotel tomatoes, corn, and taco seasoning; snacks are green grapes, strawberries, and cucumbers; and one dinner of chicken thighs over artichoke hearts with mushrooms, grape tomatoes, and onions. Lots going on this week so I'm not sure if we'll need another dinner or if we'll eat on the fly.
Saturday night we drove through a freak torrential downpour in a winter thunderstorm to have a delicious dinner at Ryan Christopher's with Chris and Diana, then we walked over and hung out at their house a little. It's been a while since we've seen them so it was great to hang out. Because we're old we were home in bed by 11. 
Sunday morning was spent lounging and reading and dreaming of not getting up off the couch.
By noon I was gabbing with the girls while shopping LuLaRoe at Amanda's (I couldn't get my other ladies in a shot but caught up with Michelle, Lisa, Sister Secrets, Melissa, and Amanda's mom and cousins too) then hit Lou's Farmer's Market for fruit for the week. I passed it the first time, which was in line with me having to go back inside Amanda's for my sunglasses, taking the seriously long way home from there, and having to have Debbie figure out how to pop the hood on my trunk so we could add wiper fluid to wash off the angry bird diarrhea. Getting older, am I right?
I finished The Life We Bury and introduced Mae to her new sling. Yes, I bought it. 
Sunday night we celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday at A-1 Japanese Hibachi. Happy birthday Lynn!!
I rounded out the weekend starting a new book (The Widower's Wife) and watching Criminal Minds.


That about does it. Gearing up for a busy week, I have something every night so I'm trying to move at least one thing. Peace be with me. 




Linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston for Weekending

  3. I love Mae's sling. Keep us updated on how she likes it! Good luck this week. Plans are daunting but I'm usually glad I did the things and you have food prep done, so that's a huge part of the problem.

  4. Sounds like you had a jam-packed weekend! I was so prepared for last week's lunch but this week not so much...I need to get better at it.

  6. You always give me so much meal prep inspiration! Do you have any tips on making fried eggs? I've read a zillion posts on how to do it, but whenever I try the whites way overcook before the yolk gets close to being done. Birthday hibachi is the best-- I hope your busy week is off to a good start!

  7. How's the sling working out? I'm now craving hibachi (even though I just had breakfast). Sounds like a fun weekend- I love mixing social time with downtime!

  8. First, how much does Mae weigh? That sling could be useful in stores not dog-friendly.

    Second, what was wrong with the coffee and how did you fix it?

    And third, I LOVE Spencer Reid and this jail thing is killing me!

  12. We're finally getting back on the weekly food prep train, and I'm so excited! I love that you bought Mae that new sling!

  13. Mmmm hibachi is my favorite! I feel like when I come out to my car covered in angry bird diarrhea, that I am losing at life that week. Like why did nature hate me so much? And how does something that little have so much shit???

  14. Looks like another one, good job on using the frozen items for lunches! We're doing a 'clean out the freezer' week as well. The car stuff certainly sounds fun, lol.

  15. The dinner on Saturday night looks delish despite the crazy weather to get there.

  16. Oh my gosh, the sling! I hope she loves it! I need to do a pantry clean out too.

  17. I've had to remake iced coffee (and tea) before too. It always feels like the biggest waste of time.

    Hope your week gets less busy!

  18. That hibachi looks like my kind of hibachi. The picture of Mae in her sling is hilarious. I think she loves it. I love all these pug pics. The boys look like grumpy old men... they need some shore in their life!
