Hey guys! I had every intention of getting this post up last night, however by the time we were done with supper it was 9:30pm. I had not planned on everything taking us till that late and it caught me a little off guard. Anywho, let’s recap.
We had lunch around 1:30ish or 2ish I believe. It was a later meal because after I finished the breakfast post, I went through and cleaned the house. I did everything but vacuum and mop. After all that and a shower it was time to eat. Good thing too because I was hungry!
I love this pic, everything looks so yummy! While I was putting lunch together I had a small handful of raisins that I forgot to take a pic of. On my plate is the rest of the salmon cream cheese combo which was enough for half a sandwich, some carrots, cucumbers, and one slice of deli turkey. On the side I had a little bit of WF wasbi dressing for dipping.
Along side that I split a bowl of cantaloupe with Scott. It was very yummy! I ate everything except for the slice of turkey. I got full and didn’t need it.
After lunch I spent all day in the kitchen doing food prep stuff. I cleaned all my veggies I bought and got those put away. I finished getting stuff together for dinner. I cooked up some breakfast sausage that had thawed and got that stored back in the freezer for another day. All that took me till about 5:30. Then my camera battery died. I need to get a backup battery because when it happened this time, I was in the middle of taking pics for future posts and had to omit some because I had no camera. I can’t have that happen again.
Scott set that recharging for me and then I fed Rocky. He was prancing around waiting for his dinner because Fridays are “Fishie Fridays” and he was anxious for his fish. After Rocky got fed and taken for a potty run, then it was time to tackle Scott’s hair. He was in desperate need of a cut. Sent him upstairs to get prepped and then I shaved his head. He looks so much better now!
While he was showering I did a little more prep work for dinner. We were having baked potatoes and I got those ready for the oven. However I couldn’t start them just yet because I needed a picture and the battery was still charging. Ahhh! Finally after what seemed like ages, the battery was ready to go. Got snaps of the potatoes and in the oven they went.
Scott was done with his shower, so I put out some munchies because we were both hungry but since the potatoes just went in the oven we had a bit of time to kill. And that’s just regular store bought salsa, we kicked the homemade salsa from the restaurant. Along with the munchies we had a drink.
It was cherry seltzer with a very very tiny splash of vanilla rum and then half a can of pineapple juice. It was okay but I’m not sure I would make it again. The pineapple juice almost seemed to make the seltzer go flat.
We chatted and munched for about 1/2 hour, then it was time to start the grill! It was a nice night for grilling too. Cool but not too cold that you didn’t want to be outside. However as we were grilling, since it was later than we had originally planned, it started getting dark. Quick. By the time I was putting the steaks on the grill, I had to have Scott hold a flashlight so I could see what I was doing.
Dinner smelled awesome as it cooked. It seemed like ages since we had grilled. Then it was time to eat! Finally!
On my plate is my steak, some grilled brussel sprouts, a deviled egg, and baked potato topped with some sour cream. I left about 1/3 of my steak and three brussel sprouts. I ate the egg and that potato you see is only half of my baked potato, the other half I saved. I did eat most of that half on my plate.
With dinner we each had a Summer Ale. We tried to eat outside by candlelight but it was still way too dark. So we brought everything indoors and ate that way. It was so late by the time we finished and cleaned up and I was exhausted. We sat on the couch and watched TV for a bit. Then I went up to bed to read for about 1/2 hour and then it was time for sleep. I fell asleep no problem! Breakfast post will be up later today!
