We went out for Indian food with Mike and Erin because apparently I like Indian food now. We ordered so much food we needed two tables. This is generally how we roll.

Week 19

Samosas and delicious sauces.

Week 19

It was Liz’s birthday, so I got her a balloon. As I was bringing the balloon to the car it popped. The nice ladies at the store saw me with my sad deflated balloon and gave me a new one for free. Kindness is the best.

Week 19

Liz kept talking about Sherrie’s Berries which are chocolate covered strawberries. I didn’t get the hint so by the time I wanted to order them, it was was too late. Turns out Godiva chocolate strawberries are SEVEN DOLLARS A STRAWBERRY. No one can afford that, so I decided to make my own.

Week 19

The Abels are basically just an adorable family. I couldn’t get a picture of Aly because she was too busy being a nine year-old girl. Multiple nine year-olds girls together is very intimidating.

After completing the most inefficient journey over multiple modes of transportation to go approximately 6 miles, we had Mother’s Day dim sum. After Mother’s Day dim sum we had some time to spare so we stopped for gelato.

Week 19

Blood orange and lemon. So good.

Week 19

Andrew got some coffee.

Week 19

Monday morning these guys showed up with their big truck to trim the trees in our backyard. Funny, as we had no idea they were coming (or had come the week before). Our trees do look good now though!

I’m sort of a late-comer to the whole Chipotle thing. Apparently no one gets burritos anymore? It’s all about the burrito bowl?

Week 18

I mowed the lawn for the first time ever. Actually, that’s not true. I once mowed my mother’s lawn with a manual mower and almost passed out from the exertion.

Week 18

This little dude was just chillin in the grass as I mowed the lawn. He was not the least bit fazed by the giant spinning metal blade a foot away from him. I threw a clump of grass on him and that didn’t bother him either. So either this frog is really really brave or really really dumb.

Week 18

We got a new coffee table! I’ve been coveting it for months but it was super expensive. We got a great deal on it because it was discontinued and there was a sale. Patience for the win!

Week 18

My leaguemate, Frak taught me how to weightlift and gave me a plan. I went for the first time by myself and it was great. I’m excited to see how much I can improve.

Week 18

Andrew really wanted to sushi. Maybe a little too much. We couldn’t finish it all.

Sunday Night Dinner – Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese

Sunday Night Dinner - Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

 

When we walked into Jen and Evan’s house this week there was a flurry of activity happening in the kitchen. Jen was simultaneously prepping our dinner and preparing a number of dishes for the upcoming week. She had tomatoes stewing on the stove, broccoli and endive being prepped on the table, asparagus roasting, and a host of other things going on. With four extra hands available we soon got everything under control and proceeded to occupy ourselves with eating bread and cheese while waiting for dinner to finish up.

Dinner was a classic tomato soup and grilled cheese affair. I had a cheddar and green apple grilled cheese, but everyone else had a four cheese sandwich that oozed when you cut it. The tomato soup was hearty and flavorful. I was never much of a tomato soup person growing up, but I have to say, I prefer my tomato soup with some texture over the perfectly smooth stuff that comes in the can. For a dinner that on the surface seemed rather light and simple, I was stuffed when we were done.
