After much consideration, I’ve made some new rules to follow when doing “happy hour” in the middle of the week.
I think we can all agree that no shots should be taken. I’m not a 21-year-old college student that doesn’t have class on Friday. I can’t swing these things like I used to.
Ugh… that made me sound old.
My boss told me my “eyes looked tired”. I think we all know that was a nice way of saying, “seriously- you look awful”.
I can’t help it, boss. Things just escalated so quickly!
After work, I laid around until it was time to get moving once again. Annie invited Mon and I over for a girl’s night. She even cooked for us. My friends are swell. :)She is much less messy in the kitchen than I am. So that’s why you rarely see pics like this of me cooking…
On the menu? Tomato soup paired with veggie focaccia sandwiches. Her husband is usually a dude who requires meat with his meals (let’s be honest- what man doesn’t?), so I think she was happy to be able to prepare a veggie-heavy meal for us.
And what girl’s night doesn’t include wine?If you look closely (or not that closely), you can see me in the red bottle. Heeeeeeyyyyyyy!The base of the sandwiches were yellow, orange, and green peppers along with onions that had been sautéed in balsamic. Topped off with spinach and provolone. I chose to also go the extra mile and dip it in my tomato soup (also made from scratch- go Annie, go!).
On another note- this was the same shirt I wore out the night before. Don’t judge me. I swear I showered. And it’s the most comfy shirt of all time that can be dressed up and down. Assume you’ll see it in heavy rotation on the blog.
Anyhoo… happy weekend! I hope you enjoy a lazy Saturday. I think I will be staying positioned on the couch a wee bit longer out of sheer laziness before I “start” my day. Because I need to watch a couple more hours of Food Network and how to prepare the perfect Thanksgiving. Even if I’m only in charge of dessert (because let’s face it- that’s the sole thing I excel at in the kitchen).
For the holiday- are you cooking the full meal or are you in charge of one dish?
Or do you bring the wine? (Hey- that’s a very important duty, too!)
Enjoy your Saturday, kids!
