Home!! The house is clean and there are roses (from our garden) in a vase on the tableAnd we enjoyed a romantic dinner <3
Before I left Hillsborough, I grabbed a diet root beer for the road. I don’t drink sodas often, but my parents have a fridge stocked full with every flavor imaginable, so I always get my favorite – root beer – when I’m there. I also had a Larabar ready for a snack, but I didn’t get hungry. I think my body has gotten used to no snacks or something because I never needed one on my trip either. I guess that’s a good thing!? Or perhaps I was just eating too many desserts 🙂
I stopped at the grocery store for some fresh veggies and fruits for dinner: portabello mushrooms, zucchini, squash and mozzarella to make grilled sandwiches on the husband’s newest batch of focaccia. We grilled all the veggies and melted the cheese on the mushrooms along with some fresh oregano from the garden and some of the squash.
Assembled. But the volume-eater that I am, I ended up taking the sandwich apart and eating the bread separately! I wanted to taste all the great flavors by themselves. The sandwich was missing pesto, which I would have made if basil had been less expensive and more in season. But the oregano was a nice back-up choice.
We also made a big spinach/greens salad with grilled squash and carrots, a few walnuts and some balsamic vinegar and Annie’s Maple Ginger dressing blended.
I have LOADS of unpacking and sorting of mail, etc. to do. Better get a move on!
Hunger caught up with me. Edited to add a very unphotogenic evening snack of yogurt, raspberries and cereal. Oh how I’ve missed yogurt!!!
