When I was in college, a big night for me and my girls would have included at trip to the OG (Olive Garden). It was about 20 minutes away from us. You know, in the town where the mall was. And, we had all become raving fans of the big bottles of OG wine… naturally a favorite.
A few weeks back, my work team got together for a BBQ at one of my colleague’s homes. Such a great night with great people. I work with some tremendous people… and we race around like fools most days together, but we don’t always have time to just visit.
Part of my fun weekend that I described yesterday included a cookout with my friends Deb and Matt on Saturday night. They have the most fantastic “party patio” as they call it… which lends to fabulous entertaining and has also given me a backyard to aspire to if I ever decide to “grow up.”
I guess it’s a week for salad recipes, huh?With the weather getting nicer and grills fired up all over town it only makes sense that we start finding new side dishes to pair with our beautifully grilled meats and veggies!
This week has been a HARD week for eating. HARD week. Lots of mindless eating. You know, where you eat first… think about it later. Ugh. The good news is that I don’t keep much in my house that could cause much damage, and I’ve taken most of the snacky food to the office by now.
Something I forgot to mention about my Vegas trip… I met some readers during my trip to the desert!
