It's been good, low-key weekend for me.
Friday night I met my friend Josie for dinner at a local pub to catch up. I ordered something a little bit unusual for me, salmon! I'm kind of weird and picky about fish and normally don't gravitate towards most fish, except maybe shrimp and crab. I try to branch out though and have decided I really like fish like Mahi Mahi, Tilapia, and sometimes even salmon.
My salmon came with veggies and wild rice and was simply grilled with a buttery/lemony sauce. It was delicious! Glad I branched out!
My Saturday consisted of a walk around the neighborhood with Clyde, errands at Target, a little local farm stand shopping, a nap, and some reading on the deck.
I also made Katie's watermelon lemonade, with a watermelon I bought at the farm stand yesterday.
Except I subbed out freshly squeezed orange juice for the lemon juice. So maybe it would be called watermelon orange-ade? Actually, I think it was more like a watermelon slushie, because I also added ice cubes to the blender.
OMG- this is so refreshing and good on a hot summery day! I enjoyed mine on the deck while reading our new book club book, Little Bee.
Later, I had plans to meet up with some fellow bloggers at Menchie's, Charlotte's latest self serve fro-yo place!
Katy was in town visiting after running the Charity Chase half marathon in Hickory in the morning.
Charity Chase was my first half marathon! I ran it last year. Can't believe it's been a whole year. Wow!
Oh, and Happy came too :)
I chose a mix of red velvet, dulce de leche, and cake batter topped with a bunch of chocolatey things and some raspberries and strawberries.
Kelly also brought along our friend Thomas.
Thomas created the most epic sundae ever. It was like Man Vs. Food! Man won ;)
Seriously, check this thing out!
We had a great time hanging out on Menchie's patio. The weather was totally gorgeous and it was a wonderful night to sit outside.
It was great meeting Katy and a pleasure to see Kelly and Allison as always.
