Soooooo my lap top has "sh*t the bed", if you will. I can't even turn it on without it immediately going Blue Screen of Death on me. So that would be the reason for my lack of blogging lately which stinks!!
I'm actively looking for a new laptop, but for now I'm on Brian's netbook...which is fine for browsing, but I really hate blogging on this thing! He runs Linux instead of Windows so I can't get Live Writer and therefore I'm blogging through BlogSpot which just takes SO much longer.
In light of this I'm going to basically do a re-cap for you; highlights of the past days...
Saturday Brian and I were invited out on our friends boat and we took it from Boston down to Cohasset (south shore of Mass). During low tide there is a sand bar you can beach on.
Brian brought me fresh local peaches and local sunflowers home from Idylwilde farms.
I enjoyed said peaches on Olympus brand Greek yogurt, with some Bob's Red Mill Muesli!
Sunday, dinner at Mom's!
She made some DELICIOUS grilled lamb, a fresh salad, and a citrusy Giada side dish
Fresh picked tomatoes for the salad. There are NO tomatoes better than ones you've picked within an hour of eating.
She made an Orzo salad based on Giada's recipe for Fregola Salad with Fresh Citrus and Red Onion.
I've actually had my eye on this recipe for a while so it was funny that she made it! Too bad I didn't know because I actually have a bag of Fregola! At least I know if I made this sometime, I would cut down the oil a little, and add some fresh orange or grapefruit juice. I needed a little more acid to cut the oil. The flavors were delicious though.
The Marinated lamb was SOOOOO good!! I can’t believe I went so many years “not liking” lamb when I was a kid…stupid.
Dessert: Angel Food cake (from WF's), freshly whipped cream with a little chocolate syrup whipped in, and fresh strawberries.
The Veggie Fajita was pretty good! It looked very fresh, and I loved how you could see all the colorful veggies inside. I added some sour cream and hot sauce. Could of added some salsa too but didn't have any.
Ok I think that pretty much sums things up.
Hopefully getting a new computer this weekend...any recommendations?! I know people say Mac, but I just don't really want to spend that much right now, and I don’t need it :)
Friday is my good friend's wedding!! I'm doing her make-up and also a reading at the ceremony...can't wait to leave work early Thursday to head down to CT for wedding festivities!
Hope I see you sooner than later!
