I had the best kind of day. One that included lounging in my PJs and drinking hot coffee from an actual mug–not a to-go cup. I love long weekends. I hope that you had a great day, too, regardless of whether or not you had off.
As I mentioned at the end of my last post, Jeff’s mom and brother were staying with us for long weekend. After enjoying a lazy Saturday morning, we finally headed out around 1:30 to
breakfast brunch at one of our favorite diners in the area.
I love the Silver Diner for a few reasons. It’s not your typical greasy diner (though don’t get me wrong- I like those every now and then, too). The menu offers a whole host of healthy options, including roasted potatoes, fruit, and veggie sausage. Plus, there’s this:
I almost always order the same thing: The American Favorite with scrambled eggs, veggie sausage and whole wheat toast.
I also almost always devour the whole plate. Saturday was one of those days. Yum!
On Saturday night, we invited Jeff’s aunt and uncle over for dinner and Jeff’s mom cooked a Mexican feast!
While she was hard at work in the kitchen, I whipped up some guacamole.
I think I used something like six avocados. We had a crazy amount of guac.
For as long as I’ve know him, Jeff has always raved about his mom’s homemade enchiladas. Saturday, I finally got to try them.
She made one tray with beef and the other with just onions and cheese.
We also had Bean Tostadas.
Delicious! Now I finally know what Jeff’s been talking about all these years.
Sunday was another low-key day for us. Overall, it was a nice, relaxed weekend with great food and even better company!
Confession: I originally wrote this post at around 4 p.m., but then decided to take a nap before I finished it. Now it’s 7:15 and I’m about to make whole wheat ravioli. A pretty perfect Monday, I’d say.
Have a great Tuesday!
P.S. I’m in the process of updating the Favorite Posts, Recipes and Reviews pages of Rosey Rebecca. I hope to have them done really soon! In the meantime, I’ve created a new page, For My Father, which is exclusively dedicated to posts on the blog about losing my father and how I’ve coped since. I hope that in writing about it, it will help those of you who are going through/have gone through the tragedy of losing a loved one.
