It’s funny how running errands with your husband can feel like a date : ) Especially two folks in the bed of a big ole truck!
I had to go to Lowes; Matt had a few supplies runs to make so we shared the trip up 29-N.
First stop: Shenandoah Joe’s to pick up a little something for this weekend and iced coffees to cool us off!
I’m also trying this new decaf. While I loved hearing all of your suggestions around the web, I decided that for sustainability purposes I should look for something I can get locally (even if that means at the grocery store) so I don’t end up getting hooked on something that requires $10 in shipping. So I’m trying SJ’s Mexican. Sure smells good! We use their Colombian at the bakery and while I like it, I just don’t LOVE it. Hoping this is a love!
We went to Lowes (got a hose holder and some spray paint!) and to Sam’s for toilet paper and bakery supplies and then headed to the bakery where we unloaded everything and switched cars. May I remind you that it was 100* and the truck is 20 years old, which mean the AC was not effective. HOT times.
I tasted a cookie while at the bakery – not a stellar snack choice, but a good one!
I was in charge of the cooking tonight and roasted up a bunch of fresh summer veggies served with chicken sausage dogs!
Okra, eggplant and tomatoes from both our garden and some that Matt got at the Pen Park market on Tues. I drizzled them all with olive oil and sprinkled on salt, pepper and smoked paprika and roasted for 40 minutes at 350*.
The dogs were Lou’s brand and were quite good – esp. served atop a doughy Cville Crunch slice!
Sparkling water with a splash of Karen’s sweet tea!
We’re planning to cut open a watermelon for dessert! [Can you tell Karen went grocery shopping today and we’re totally stocked up on the good stuff!?]
