Last night we went over to our friends’ house for dinner. Emily put out a lovely spread of appetizers and we had a healthy yet gourmet meal of gazpacho and salad. It was all so refreshing after all the bacon earlier that day!
Emily made Alton Brown’s gazpacho recipe, and we topped it with some Great Harvest Spinach Feta croutons.
Our salads combined mixed greens in a lemon-dill dressing with avocado, steamed asparagus, feta, watermelon and pumpkin seeds.
Our boys played so well together! Mazen loves hanging out with big boys. We were sad to call it such an early evening to get home for bedtime.
Matt and I relaxed on our deck after dinner. It was such a lovely night, and the fireflies twinkled all around us.
This morning I fueled up with a big breakfast because I have my last two women’s league soccer games today and they start right at lunch time. I’m planning to have a small pre-game snack at noon and am hoping this whole grain Cville Crunch French toast has topped off my glycogen stores!
Do you say lightning bugs for fireflies? I actually say lightning bugs, but fireflies are more romantic : )
