Happy, Happy Weekend!


I love a long weekend.  I even gifted myself an extra day by taking a personal day on Friday. I had lunch with a former student at the school where I used to teach and watched part of their talent show. I also had a late lunch/early dinner with my husband at a new local place. I purposely did not make many plans for this weekend - I could tell I need to replenish and revive myself with a little down time so I can begin this last week of school with joy.


Today I started my day at the farmers market.  It is a vibrant and lively place with as many crafty stops as farmers selling wares. I picked up asparagus, radishes, and a bag of salad greens. As I finished my errands today I spotted a new Filipino food truck by our local dairy store.  I stopped and bought enough to feed people at home.  My fish taco was amazing-super spicy- and Groovy Girl and my husband finished up the chicken, rice, and noodles I'd picked out for them.


Tonight I'm making a dirty rice recipe for dinner. My husband bought some steaks wrapped in bacon at Aldi - he just does not fully embrace my idea that meat I eat needs to be locally grown/organic.  I'm not eatin' one of those steaks but the dirty rice and grilled vegetables will be delicious and enough for me. I found the recipe at Bob's Red Mill website.  I had to go out and search for TSP and wonder if I'll like this additional protein or if I can leave it out next time.

The weather is amazing right now. A little rain here and there but yesterday was a brilliant sunshine yellow.  I look forward to seeing what the next two days bring...

What's everyone else cooking this holiday weekend?
