After mucho reading, Mom, Matt and I went on a sunset walk
It was QUITE breezy and chilly, but as soon as you get a’movin’ you warm up
Karen had made some popcorn this afternoon and I had a few handfuls ’cause I was hangry!
When we returned from our walk, dad put out hors d’oeuvres
I had about 5 slices –
And had my first own drink in 2 nights – a Squirrale homebrew sample x2
The LAST bottle!
After two of those I knew I was headed for that "I’ll just keep refilling my glass" mode so I went into the kitchen to start the prep and made myself a mocktail
The boys and I prepared a fun [healthy] dinner
Kanz and I danced to jazz while the veggies cooked
We prepared eggplant, peppers, broccoli and leftover beans with creole seasoning and some chicken broth
The shrimp were cooked separately
They produced a nice crust on the pan which we deglazed with some Ferrari-Carano Fume Blanc – a honeymoon favorite!!
The brown bites and wine made a great sauce
Hungry family members
Dinner was served…
I broke into the wine for dinner – a fabulous Petite Sirah
Seconds (small pours, but they added up in my blood!)
For dessert, Larbs and Matt made this ice cream pie!!
Layers of choco-chip cookie dough (slightly thawed) with toffee topping and hot fudge and caramel.
MY CUP OF TEA!! I had this plus some nibbles and licked my plate!! So, so good. We almost fought over the last slice but ended up splitting it 8 ways
Cranium is out and so is my water bottle. I’m feeling the effects of drankin’ and kinda wishing this was a sober night after all.
Tomorrow Matt, Kanz and I are hoping to run SEVEN miles! I’m rejuvenated from two days off of running and am testing out the mileage for the potential half mary training. Bald Head is the perfect setting for a long run!
