As my mother who lives 3,000 miles would say, “Where have you been?” (Said in a ‘I’ve been looking for you’ tone!)
Oh, I’m here, it’s been a busy week! Here’s what I’ve been up to!
1.) Walking! I’m in a pedometer challenge, and I’m determined to win! Or at least place in the top three! It’s not easy when you’re also competing against New Yorkers! Those guys walk EVERYWHERE! I’ve been walking in the morning and at night. And hiking three miles almost everyday at lunch time! (I aerobically walked 9 MILES yesterday! What?!) It’s all about squeezing it in when you can!
2.) And that includes walking to the grocery store too! I bought myself some pretty flowers this week!
3.) Irving’s mom was in town this week! We had fun hanging out! And she brought goodies!! Thanks!!
4.) Irving whipped up his mom’s famous meatballs (with fresh beef from Harris Ranch!)
We had quite a nice dinner together! Hi Julie!
And to top it off, a sweet moscato served on the side!
5.) I cooked! I actually found a recipe, shopped for ingredients and COOKED. Alert the press!
I cooked up Jenna’s Greek Stoup! <— Click over there for the recipe! Instead of Alphabet pasta, I opted for Orzo to stick with the Greek Theme.
Served with some Feta, it was yummy!
6.) I got The Reader on Netflix and me and Julie watched it last night. Probably not the best movie to watch with your mother-in-law, but hey, if I can see Zumanity with my sister-in-law, we can do anything, right? I really loved The Reader. It was just a good story with an interesting plot. I actually can’t believe we’ll be going to Auschwitz later this year.
7.) And now, our guests have left, and I came home today to find that Irving went to Costco. And he bought me the BEST thing you can possibly by at Costco:
I LOVE PICKLES!!!!!! I actually finished a jar today! Good timing, babe!
8.) More walking…. I’m walking to Erika’s place soon so I can see the baby again! I am so excited to have a new baby to play with!!! She’s the CUTEST thing, and only four days old today! So excited!
Ummm, both of those meals look SO GOOD. Can I come over?
Yum, love pickles too. I like to slice them and eat them on top of Nacho Doritos. So delicious. I may have to have that this weekend.
Good job with all the walking! My pedometer battery has been dead for a few months… it’s killing me since I’m actually doing a fair amount of walking these days but don’t feel like I get “credit” for it without my pedometer. You just inspired me to go get a new battery for it. 😉 And to cook! Mmmm… you think Irving will share that famous meatball recipe? YUM!
I’ll have to ask him if I can share the recipe. They’re YUMMY! Yea, I keep telling Irving that the pedometer has changed my life. lol I walked to work today! You have hte CUTEST baby! I miss him!
Mmm, pickles! And your other eats look excellent, too! Keep up the pedometer challenge! Yay!
