The past couple of weeks Ben and I have have had weekend excursions, and last weekend we had the extreme pleasure of going up to his parents house in the suburbs and meeting their new cat, Phina (!!!!). : )
She is SUCH a great cat, and so funny (and so pretty!). We are so thrilled that Ben’s parents have such a great, loving, playful cat. They could use a little more sunshine in their lives. : )
Michelle prepared an awesome lunch of gourmet sandwiches and cheddar-beer soup, and we played a rousing game of Risk! (I told you, we’re addicted.)
I promptly died/was eradicated. Ben, obviously, won. (OF COURSE HE DID.)
We’ve been going nonstop lately, so this weekend we decided to take it easy. Ben made us fancy omelettes (goat cheese, pecorino, and arugala) with extra crispy bacon. I contributed fresh squeezed orange juice, which promptly became mimosas. I love the way my husband thinks. : )
Later that afternoon I made a double batch of oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies, B’s favorites.
We only baked a dozen for ourselves, and froze the rest so we can have a stash readily at hand. : )
These are my kind of weekends. Hope you all were able to relax and enjoy a mimosa (or two!) this weekend. : ) xo
