Well, it was a relaxing day and I’m sure my dad appreciated that! After golf, we all just hung around the house and watched the U.S Open together. Before dinner, my mom laid out some snacks—more of those addicting blue corn chips as well as some hummus and almonds. I had a little bit of everything, along with a small glass of red wine (sorry not pictured). As for dinner, I didn’t even have to ask for no meat because no meat was on the menu to begin with! We had my favorite sweet and spicy bbq beans with kale, whole wheat rolls, grilled portabellos and sweet potatoes. A veggie feast, for sure! I had another glass of wine with dinner but didn’t finish it.
I was in charge of grilling the portabellos (in the rain, no doubt!) and because I was sort of new to it, I consulted the queen of grilled veggies: Kath! After conversing a bit on how to properly grill a mushroom, I decided to splash some olive oil on it as well as salt, pepper and cayenne and grill it for about 5 minutes per side. The result was the hit of dinner—a juicy, slighty spicy portabello. So easy and so delicious—thanks Kath :). I dipped mine in spicy whole grain mustard. Delish. We also had a salad with woodstock dressing. I ate everything except for the sweet potato. I don’t know why, but it just wasn’t doing it for me tonight. I couldn’t eat it! Weird.
After dinner I took a nice little father-daughter walk with my dad and Mikan and when we came back, my mom had dessert all ready. Coconut sorbet with fresh raspberries! You just can’t beat that. It was so delicious. Better than any ice cream I’ve ever had!
Ryan is still in St.Pete at his parent’s house but he should be home relatively soon. As for me, its off to bed to read! I’m still finishing up the book I’ve been reading: A Breath of Snow and Ashes. I did buy a new book today though called “The Ten Year Nap” and I’m excited to start that once I’m done with this!
