Friday night: Dinner our with Mandi (with a Martini):
and Bryan at Liberty Tap Room. I got the Hawaiian salad sans chicken plus avocado
Saturday Afternoon: We went to the pool with Mandi & Bryan and then I spent the rest of the day catching up around the house and baking. First up, Vegan Almond Butter Chocolate Chip cookies for my cousins for their birthdays. I used 1 tsp vanilla vs.. 1/2 tsp vanilla & 1/2 tsp almond extract:
So yum. I also made up some granola for my Dad and Mandi & Bryan:
For dinner, Josh & I fired up the grill again. I put some London Broil in this marinade for him and then cooked up some sweet potato & carrot and white potato foil packets. The veggies were covered in a little oil and this spice (disclaimer: Garlic & Herb Mrs. Dash that the company sent me for free to try).
We also had big bowls of water melon (I topped mine with yogurt and granola too):
Now we’re headed up to my Aunt & Uncle’s house for a BBQ/Birthday party. I am bringing a simple appetizer, fruit, nuts, cheese & Dr. Krakers:
I have a feeling Frank, like Murphy, will spend most of today sleeping ;)
