Welcome Home, says Roxy :)
It seems my guest posts didn’t go up when I scheduled them to, so I’m trying to figure that out. And we had a power outage at the hotel sometime on Sunday, and they just never got the internet hooked up again, so I had a nice 4 days with no computers at all.
The trip was amazing. I know I’ll be doing some posts on it with tons of pictures, so be ready for those as soon as I can get through the 600+ pictures I took! It was a great, crazy, unforgettable trip.
We got in to Nick’s parents’ house this morning around 3 am, slept until about 9, ran some errands, ate lunch with Nick’s mom and then headed home. We’ve got a few groceries to tide us over until the weekend, the bags are unpacked, and I am in my pajamas on the couch, getting ready for a long night of sleep.
I did take pictures of food for the first time in over a week tonight! I had so many other pictures to take while we were gone, that I just didn’t worry about it. Plus, our breakfast was at the hotel everyday and was basically the same: eggs, beans, fruit, coffee. Lunches were either tuna or a pb & j tortilla plus fruit or a granola/Lara/Clif bar or nuts. Dinners were out and ranged from grilled meat/beans/tortillas/salsas, soup, fruit plate/smoothie, plain salad, etc. All good and no one got horribly sick, either.
Dinner tonight was super easy, and I’m really glad I thought to buy these before we left.
I cooked these ravioli and put together a quick sauce with:
- tomato sauce
- italian seasoning
- crushed red pepper
We also threw together a quick salad with some romaine and tomatoes from our garden.
Can I just say how excited I was to have something whole wheat and a big serving of veggies tonight? We had some produce, but mostly in the form of beans, plantains, pineapple, watermelon, or a bit of salad on 2 occasions over the entire week.
I’ll be posting the last of the guest posts over the next couple of days while I catch up on everything and get back into the swing of things around here. I’m also extremely terrified to look at my google reader :)
See you for breakfast! This girl needs some sleep.
How long does it take you to get back to “normal” after a longer trip? I feel so out of it still after being gone for over a week.
