Nothin’ like some friend action on a Friday night!
When I got home from the conference today, I really wanted to take a nap and a walk. Instead I unpacked, logged my continuing ed credits, paid a bill, washed my Toms, changed the bedding, prepped the picnic and ate a snack!
Yogurt + clusters (disclosure on the Siggi’s!)
But somehow, I found the time for a a 30 minute walk 🙂 I needed to get outside after being in all day!
Then we headed downtown for Fridays. Seamane came with us and we met up with Sara + Juan and a handful of other fun friends.
These guys moved into the bungalow that we rented for a year, and I am SAD TO SAY they are moving to Ventura, California next month for a job change 🙁 Sad sad. However, if you have any desire to rent a cute Craftsman in Cville, the house we lived in is up for rent! OR if you want to be friends with these guys in California, let me know too : )
For dinner we packed up a picnic. I made the bean salad yesterday and kale on Wed so there was nothing to cook at all tonight!
Seamane brought this awesome guacamole + edamame “Guacamame?” dip with pita chips
The bean salad is a tried-and-true favorite.
Start with a chopped cucumber + orange (cara cara orange)
1 can each of drained + rinsed black + pinto beans
1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tsp mustard, salt and pepper
Frothed!! (Brilliant whoever told me to do this!)
Fresh basil, all mixed up!
Perfect for chip dippin’!
Served with kale salad
I was so very sad that Carpe Donut and their awesome lemonade was not there this week for me to have for cocktail hour 🙁 I had plans for a popsicle later on, but it got too cold. Brrrrr! And wet.
But cheers to another fun Friday!
