Lol so much excitement for this dance, hope it lives up to it!
No really, actually we've texted back and forth for an hour or so on Tuesday and then earlier today he texted to say he is really looking forward to seeing me again at the dance. Very cute and awww. I'm looking forward to it myself. A BBQ at a friend's house in the afternoon (I'm bringing jello and corn on the cob) and then going dancing. Bethy, I will be wearing square dance clothes....poofy skirt and all. Probably something like this: http://www.mondiki.com/product.php?productid=16250&cat=271&page=1
Otherwise, lazy vacation is going pretty well. Still feels a bit like a long weekend, and only had one really sunny day to sit in the park for a couple hours, but at least I'm getting plenty of sleep. Seriously, it's been hard to even gather enough energy drive to leave the house! Today managed to run out finally to Rite Aid and Fred Meyer's. Didn't do ANY grocery shopping last week. Super weird. Did manage to drag myself to the natural co-op store for my free produce box - thank goodness! Look at the score:
7 ears corn (to the BBQ! along with whatever I pick up tomorrow- probably 6-12 more ears)
7 tomatoes (oven-dried for pasta/salads)
6 heads green/romaine lettuce (3 to my neighbor with a tortoise)
1 artichoke (tried steamed but I think it was a bit past it's prime. Or I did it wrong. Or I just don't really like artichokes)
2 bunches Kale (I need some good recipes. And don't say kale chips. I HATE kale chips)
1 bunch dinosaur kale
14 russet potatoes (ugh...what to do with these? Probably make mashed potatoes or something for coworkers)
and……..almost 3 pounds of Rainier Cherries!!
Seriously. Street value on Rainier cherries is even higher than asparagus. I didn't even know you could buy them yet this year. I just saw them at Fred Meyer today for $5.98/lb. That's like......$18 in cherries. Plus another $5 in grapes. And $6 in strawberries. All before we even START talking the veggies. It's unbelieveable.
For posterity's sake....
B: banana/blueberry muffin, chipotle pinto beans w/ sprinkle cheddar cheese, grapes
S: strawberries w/ PB/choc sauce
L: chicken/bean enchilada casserole
Ritz bits cheese sandwiches
Little bag fruit snacks (My Little Pony if you must know)
D: pineapple & apple slices (leftovers from stocking the dehydrator) lettuce & kale salad w/ oven-dried tomatoes, black olives, and feta w/ strawberry balsamic vinagriette, eggplant lasagna
kettle korn popcorn - 1/2 bag
cinnamon apple spice tea
Plus? I did NOT buy another bottle of wine tonight. I wanted to terribly but I knew I would sit down and drink it and not get another thing accomplished tonight. And I had no reason at all to get one except for boredom. But I didn't. So yay me!
