Happy Friday!!! I’m so glad that the weekend is here!
My weekend started with Happy Hour at Dave and Marie’s house with Mal and Marie. (Dave had to work late.) On our walk over to their house, Mal and I packed up part of our bar and brought it over to share.
We had lots of goodies to contribute to Happy Hour!
A traveling bar!
Before we broke into the booze, we had some puppy playtime with the dogs. Murphy was psyched to stretch his little pug legs. He’s still wound-up from playtime!
To kick-off Happy Hour, Marie and I each enjoyed a cocktail made with Pama Pomegranate Liquor , soda water, and a splash of pomegranate-blueberry juice. It was the perfect drink to start the weekend!
Tonight’s dinner was split into 2 courses. First, I had a serving of Mal’s homemade fried rice, which was mixed with red bell peppers, mushrooms, onion, celery, carrots, and chicken sausage. It was AMAZING! Mal thinks the recipe is a “work in progress,” but I really liked it.
In fact, I liked it so much, I helped myself to another serving.
Drink #2 of the evening was a Bloody Mary made with RIPE Bloody Mary Mix . I took me a lot longer to finish this drink. The mix was so thick– I wanted the ice to melt!
The second course of dinner was a cheese smorgasbord!
We had cheese + chicken quesadillas, cheese + onion quesadillas, and mini cheese pita pizzas. Of course, I tried one of each! I love cheese!
We dominated the cheese smorgasbord! It had no chance against us!
After finishing my Bloody Mary, I switched over to water. Dave, Marie, and I committed to an early Body Pump class in the morning, so I need to be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the morning.
