I’ve been asking for a relaxing weekend and I got one! If I look at my boyfriend’s backyard at this angle, it feels like a resort. Love it!
Friday night was fairly stressful since I advanced into the next stage of a job I applied to. They sent me a two/three hour online test. There was a timed word problems portion which pretty much killed me. I haven’t taken maths in years and was not too sure why I had to take it. Thank goodness for these Sweet Potato Good Thins making me feel better. Crispy like a chip. I ate my feelings.
Saturday, Scruffy and I went to the store and came home with these goodies.
He cooked as I swam and threw the balls for the pups.
After an hour later, lunch was served. This is one of my favourite meals in life … add in crawfish and it would be the best meal ever.
Rizzo was pooped from being out in the sun. Daisy and Luna were both tired from running around. The pups slept a lot which was perfect because soon enough it was time for dinner.
I kicked Scruffy out of his own kitchen so that I could make him dinner. The chicken was the only thing I wasn’t a great fan of. Next time I’ll probably stick to chicken breasts since they cook better in a skillet. But overall, I was happy with how things came out.
Since a box of puff pastry comes with two sheets and I used one for the asparagus, I decided to make a dessert out of the other. Hazelnut chocolate is just a fancy way of saying Nutella and who doesn’t like Nutella?! These came out better than I thought, though I could have done better with the flower petals. These were the only ones that looked decent.
Sunday, Scruffy made little weenies and we ate that along with cheese as a snack since we had a late breakfast. I made dinner and the leftovers were packed as my lunch the rest of the week. I can seriously eat pesto pasta forever as well. So freaking yum.
In between everything we switched off watching telly and playing Super MarioWorld, reminiscing about our childhood. How did we ever beat the levels when we were younger?! We were having such a difficult time beating certain levels. So sad.
We also played a few rounds of 7th Wonder which has become one of our favourite go to games. I really need to look into an expansion pack but not too sure if it’s worth it.
Always thankful for weekends like these, where I can just relax with the pups and boyfriend doing nothing but play games, cook, and watch telly.
