So how many of you are taking Friday off? If so, I hope you’re currently enjoying sunshine and margaritas and some type of water- pool, lake, whathaveyou.
Today was another good day. Jack was up at 5 and then went back to sleep until 8:45 or so… then we spent the rest of the morning just hanging out. For breakfast I had plain yogurt with blueberries, granola and honey.
Afterward Jack took the longest nap EVER. Like 2 1/2 hours. I needed to grab a few things at Target and was kicking myself for not going pre-nap. I ended up picking up around the house and finishing our book club book (Little Bee- great but sad). Then Chloe and I just stared at each other for a while. I threw together a quick lunch of leftover pork loin sandwich from La Duni and Monday night’s leftover salad.
For Valentine’s Day my awesome friend Kate sent a package that included these amazing cookie dough truffles. Actually there was just one truffle inside, and after I ate it I couldn’t wait to make a batch myself. So with another birthday celebration upon us, I finally had a reason!!!
They’re not too hard to make. A little time consuming- you assemble the cookie dough (sans eggs), refrigerate, roll into balls, freeze, then coat in chocolate.
SO GOOD. You should make them right now.
Tonight was birthday celebration #2: Happy hour at Times Ten Cellars. It rained at first…
But eventually cleared up, thank goodness. We had a great time!
And Brian brought cupcakes from The Cupcakery.
Don’t even ask me what kind because there were too many and I forget. I just know I had part of a chocolate cupcake with PB frosting and a lemon cupcake with blueberry frosting.
Afterward Brian had to go to a work function, but I dragged Joy, Chip & Jill (and later Bobby) to Scalini’s for dinner. Scalini’s has my favorite pizza in Dallas, and Joy figured out the perfect topping combo: Ricotta, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach.
The most interesting part of the meal was bruschetta with pecan-jalapeno pesto. SO GOOD.
On a side note, I think I have to return my new camera I tried using it today and it keeps giving me a “busy” message. After an hour of the busy signal, I figured that there was a problem. So sad. But hopefully it’s just a quirk with this camera and I’ll be able to get a functional one tomorrow.
Happy Memorial Day!
