The fruits of a four day weekend

August 20, 2018

I’m super glad I went to the beach on Friday, because it was the best day of the four days I had off.

On Saturday my credit card and I dressed up and met friends for tea at the Mary Cassatt Tea Room at the Rittenhouse hotel for swanky Afternoon Tea.

It was so worth it. The company was amazing, and although you’d think teeny sandwiches like this wouldn’t be filling but with a pot of tea, a glass (okay two) of sparkling wine, and a selection of tiny desserts even I, queen of the neverending appetite, was satiated.

Sunday I did my grocery shopping and general running around. I dried some more oregano and harvested basil to make pesto, which I’ll post about later this week. And it was SummerSlam night. You know I’m a WWE junkie.

Today I wanted to make sure I was back on track for food this week. I found this recipe for Honey Lemon Chicken Bowls from Gimme Some Oven and gave it a whirl.

The kitchen smelled amazing, and not only do I have four ready to go for this week, but I have 2 more servings that we can use for dinner one night.

I also did a crapton of laundry and even worked out. It was a good weekend! Tomorrow it’s back to the grind and I have to try and remember how to be a productive member of society.

    The bowls look great, as does the tea. I was wondering how it was there.
