Can you believe the tomato Karen brought from her sister’s garden!?!!?
The Foursome of us made it back to Charlotte safe and sound but with growling stomachs. I had the second half of my Popchips bag on the way home
Followed by a handful of dried fruit and nuts before we left again for the airport
It was sad saying goodbye to Tina + Mal! The house feels empty
I was really hungry when we returned for a 4PM lunch!
I sliced up a hard-boiled egg from last week –
And had a Jalapeno Roll with zucchini and Laughing Cow –
I turned the rest of the zucchini slices into little Laughing Cow and Rhubarb Jam sandwiches – can’t wait to make these again!
A pile of watermelon –
And some Oikos with flax + granola
I overcompensated my hunger and ended up feeling too full after all of this.
We didn’t really get hungry for dinner until 8:30 and I decided to use up some veggies and mix them with mac n cheese
Topped with a bit of goat cheese and sriratcha
And served in my African treasures
With peacock decor in view -
Over dinner, Matt and I watched the movie Miss Potter, which tells the story of Beatrix Potter’s life. I have mentioned before that my mom is children’s book author and a former children’s librarian – she LOVES Beatrix Potter! You’ll find Peter Rabbit and his friends all over our house, and I have lots of memories of reading the stories growing up. So I loved the movie!!!
I even have a treasured Mrs. Tiggy Winkle Christmas ornament!
Hunger caught up with me and my small bowl of mac at 10 and I had one of Karen’s date bars from our freezer –
Have a question for the blog summit committee? Where was our first kiss? Our favorite meal we’ve ever had? What’s the hardest part about blogging everyday?
I’m really tired and can’t wait to have my head hit the pillow. It is considerably hotter here than it was last week – bring on the fans!
