Hi friends—still raining!
This afternoon I was actually quite productive and got a bunch done on the “top secret project” front. My lips are sealed! 😉 Midway through the afternoon though I broke for a snack of an Oikos + MixMyGranola—best combo ever!
I dragged my suitcase to begin to pack for this weekend immediately my little beast hopped in and has been sleeping there with his mouse ever since! Dexter LOVES to sleep on bags, in bags, on clothes, on papers, on pillows, in suitcases…..its funny!
Dinner was obvious—
Ryan’s dinner (he really doesn’t “do” split pea soup. lol)—-
I “beefed up” some Annie’s mac & cheese by adding fresh Parmesan, a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese and fresh ground pepper. Don’t worry, he got his veggies in (and those are nitrate-free hot dogs!)! 😉
After I ate I spent a ton of time doing some “at home alterations” to the dress I plan to wear to the rehearsal dinner. I really don’t want to pay for it to be professionally done and so with a twist of a safety pin I think I got it! I’m still going to need a ton of fashion tape (love this stuff) though but I think its doable.
Dessert was a chocolate sundae!
OMG!!! It was so good! I used some So Delicious Coconut Milk Chocolate Ice Cream and topped it with unsweetened coconut and extra dark chocolate chips. I almost died. These coconut milk ice creams are seriously the BEST ice creams I’ve ever found at the supermarket. I can’t believe they are dairy-free!! This was rich and chocolately but with a fraction of the calories and saturated fat that ice cream has. Plus, it is super satisyfing!
Murphy-Goode Fact of the Day:
Murphy-Goode’s Cabernet Sauvingon isn’t called the King of Wines for nothing. It packs a serious punch with blackberry, bay leaf, thyme and black cherry. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to age all red wines—-this Cab is perfect now!
