What a nice day its been today! Our Sunday dinner became a double birthday celebration.
We had such lovely weather, there was visiting outside on the patio. My brother-in-law, Robert’s birthday was today so Dave decided to fix fajitas and 🌮 and as I was calling the kids to get a head count, I found out Josh and Shari were not going to make it. I quickly called my friend Julie to see if she and Wes were busy. She said they had reservations at a local restaurant to celebrate her upcoming birthday, but cancelled their plans and came to eat with us! We ran out and got birthday cards, and a gift card for Julie, then back home to finish preparing dinner and cleaning house.
For the foodies, we had fajitas, tacos and chips, then for dessert Julie brought a coffee flavored tres leche cake, which I had never tasted before. Bubba (Robert) and Connie brought a pecan pie and I didn’t eat any. I missed my chance because he took it with him when they went home. I know it was good though because it was from Tippins Pie Pantry (but sold by Albertsons) and I used to work there when the restaurant was here.
Last night, Dave took me to Chef Point, and we shared some Italian nachos, then I had Mahi Mahi with coconut rice. Yum! He had Chicken Parmesan which came out looking like a pie because the whole top is covered and closed in by cheese! He didn’t eat but a fourth of it. He has had a 3-day weekend, so I hope he is rested and ready for work tomorrow. 😉
I don’t know how I’m surviving without having done any workouts for the last three days, plus we have been resting all weekend because Dave was tired and I had somehow injured my knees. I’m thinking I did the wrong kind of exercise when doing the walking workouts. Dave thought i should rest and rehab, but the whole weekend I was upset because we ate rich food and I got little exercise. My knees hurt all the way until today though, so maybe he was right to have me resting. I just hope my gummies did their job!
