and lots of cooking
We had plans on Saturday to go out to the girls house for a visit and the “auntie-do-list” of things like fixing a leaky drain and moving some items and doors around.
Well we changed that to next weekend because a co-worker of Lori’s and his wife were coming over. I was going to cook everyone lunch and he and Lori were going to discuss the garden and some changes.
Friday I made a lovely gazpacho for the next day as the first course and the second change of the weekend came. Their dog may have injured her back so co-workers wife would not be coming as she was going to stay with the dog. Guess I didn’t need to make as much salmon as I had purchased.
Saturday morning after I finished with breakfast I prepped the salmon and carrots for later and made a watermelon, lime and mint salad. As I put it in the fridge Lori got a call and the dog needed emergency surgery and neither would be coming.
Sadly it was 11am and to late to go out to the girls but an empty calendar and a fridge full of food.
Lori has a horrid cold so her having a down day wasn’t a bad thing. We left a voicemail for Kathi to see if she was available for dinner. Lori and I ate the soup and watermelon salad for lunch and I trimmed a tree in the back yard and did things like laundry.
In the evening just as I put the carrots on the grill to cook we heard back from Kathi and she came over and we had dinner and someone to help us eat the food I made. Salmon and carrots on the grill, nearly everything cooked on the grill this week because its too hot to put on the oven.
We sat outside and played with the three kittens that will be going to the shelter at some point this week.
I made the other half of the salmon on Sunday and more salad. Left overs galore but at least they are yummy and all Whole30 compliant.
