Random thoughts from the weekend. . .

1.  Our grill is dead.  And I'm trying to create meals from our freezer, because there's a lot of stuff in there.  Friday night we had cheesy-olive bread (a half of a loaf that was leftover from somewhere, so I stuck it in the freezer) and homemade pea soup.  And wine.  Everything goes better with wine.

2.  The top two floors of our house are so easy to keep clean, since the lone remaining child has taken up residence in the basement.  The child prefers it there (it's a finished basement, lest anyone think I'm truly wicked!)  So, it takes no time to clean the house, do laundry for just Dan and I, and iron the few things that require it.  I spent much of Saturday finishing what is my new favorite read of the summer.

3.  Lilly and I took a walk through our neighborhood and made notes for ways to dress up our mailbox.

4.  For supper on Saturday (see #1) we had BLTs.  Without the "L" so I added cheese.  Not as healthy, but definitely tasty.

5.  After supper on Saturday, we went shopping and bought a new grill:-)

6.  And then went for frozen custard.  I had banana custard with chocolate chunks.  He had the chocolate and peanut butter chunk.  Which is highly unusual because I hate it when fruit messes with my chocolate, and he almost always gets something with fruit.  After 29 years together, we are still full of suprises:-)

Sounds like a good weekend!

Glad you got a grill. Makes life a little easier.

We need a new grill too. My husband is wanting one of the Green Egg ones so bad but I think we'd have to use it until we're 100 to make the cost worthwhile.

I've not heard about this book before.

I don't think I've ever had frozen custard. It sounds delicious. And weren't you a brave one trying out a fruit and chocolate one. My favorite milkshake is a banana chocolate. Yum, yum.

We also need a new grill! Ours is several years old and my husband has replaced grates and parts once already. I bought a new Cuisinart griddler last fall that I use indoors, we haven't needed an outdoor grill a lot. Still, ours needs to be replaced too. Glad you got one! Maybe before football season starts, we can get one. We did get a new stove (for me) and a gigantic tv (for my husband), so the spending will need to stop soon :)

That book looks good. I checked my online library site and they do have a hard copy of that book, but not available in digital download format. I've made a note of it, thanks for the recommendation :)

My husband loves a good BLT! Me, I don't eat sliced tomato, but I love a good BEC - bacon, egg and cheese. My favorite :)

Hope you've had a great week Karen, and have another wonderful weekend coming up!
