Speaking of which, a few more snapshots from our trip to the delta this week. Starting with last night's dinner:
|Mom's delicious salad|
|Potatoes a la Chris and Ashley--cooked on the grill|
|Steak grilled by Dad|
|My berry cobbler -- recipe here (just replace the apples with berries!)|
A few miscellaneous shenanigans:
|One of our morning walks|
|New appetizer recipe coming soon!|
|Watching fireworks after sunset|
|Eating corn on the cob - not my best photo|
For now, though, it's home sweet home. We came home to a tidy apartment, which I love, and tonight we took it easy on dinner and just relaxed with el gato.
|Look at that little dude. Adorable.|
For dinner, one of my very favorites, a specialty around here, bruschetta, along with some mixed greens (balsamic, feta, olive oil, salt, and pepper) and a lovely chardonnay.
We caught up on one of our favorite TV shows, Franklin and Bash, a hilarious law comedy starring Breckin Meyer (Clueless fans?) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar. We watched it last year also, and we love it. You can find it on TNT. We also walked over to our favorite frozen yogurt place, Twist, which has a new location--a few blocks closer to our apartment! Hooray! We prefer to walk to get our little treat, so it's all the better that we don't have to go quite so far. It's about 0.8 miles away. Not bad at all.
|So many toppings!|

Tomorrow we're heading out to visit Terry's grandparents, who live about two hours away. First we'll need to complete a seven-mile training run for our half marathon. We're about halfway through the training program, and we have almost exactly two months to the big day. I'm feeling confident so far, but now the mileage will pick up, so we'll see what happens!
