Welcome home to us!
What a weekend. The weather cleared up, so we actually got to go back and ride yesterday.
It was so nice to be outside – the weather was perfect, we didn’t need jackets, and the rain passed over and never came back.
We were out there for about 3 hours or so, taking turns riding.
While Bob and Cindy were out on a longer ride with the horses, Nick and I took a bunch of pictures around the place.
and check out these lovebirds!
There were 5 dogs and at least 4 cats here, but these two had something special.
The cat just wouldn’t stop loving on him, and they cuddled for an hour or so – it was so sweet!
Now that is a look of love.
After packing up all the equipment, we headed home and had some chicken, veggies, and whole grain bread for dinner.
We also had some Kline’s for dessert :) Flavor of the week this week? Blueberry!
After watching a little football, we all crashed for the night.
Today was fun and busy.
We got up this morning, Bob made some of the best biscuits I’ve ever had, and we went to church. We ended up going to Costco and Martin’s after church was over so I could pick up a few groceries I needed before we came home.
We went back to the house, had leftover chicken, some roasted asparagus and sweet potato cakes. Nick and I got on the road around 3:30 today to head home.
I had one of those chocolate Amazing Grass bars on the road – I love those bars! I never thought I’d be eating green bars, but whatever works, right?
We got home a little after 6, unpacked the car, put the food away and talked to our neighbors for a bit before heading up for Walmart for milk, eggs, and produce.
I had a plan for dinner, but didn’t really want to cook once we got home and unpacked, so we picked up one of the new Bertolli frozen meals to try. I’m not normally a fan of frozen meals (especially ones with meat – it’s always such a weird texture), but this was pretty good.
We tried the Chianti Braised Beef and Rigatoni, which had mushrooms, red and yellow peppers, and a tomato sauce. Nick added a few sun dried tomatoes while it cooked and I cooked one of those frozen steamer bags of peas for a little green with dinner.
For a frozen meal, it was really good. I still don’t think I’ll be buying things like this very often because we like to cook and like homemade food better, but this wouldn’t be bad in a pinch or after a day of traveling/unpacking like today.
I ended up only eating about half of my serving because I was already planning on having some popcorn during Iron Chef ;)
I better hurry up – I only have 10 minutes!
