Exhausting Weekend

This was a very busy weekend for me. It started on Thursday when I made vanilla cupcakes with coffee icing for Jp's birthday on Friday. Friday we went out for breakfast and then ran around for some errands including a trip to the butcher (and hour round trip)  for some delicious tender steaks - a couple New Yorks and a couple Rib Eyes (with the caps on).  Next we went to pick up his son (an hour and a half round trip)  and then it was time to get dinner started - dinner was Rosemary Roasted Nugget Potatoes, Creamed Spinach, Brussels Sprouts and the steaks cooked on the grill. That was a lot of things to figure the timing for but I did it.

Saturday we joked that he was just ordinary and we could treat him crappy because it was just a normal day. But on Sunday it was father's day so he was treated special again - Happy  Father's Day! More cooking - Eggs Benedict with homemade Hollandaise Sauce on crumpets with ham. Then I did laundry and ironing and put on the summer quilt and summer bedding. Then it was time for dinner - parmesan and breaded basa filets with rice and peas. The boys ate very well this weekend.

Including a medium bag of homemade oatmeal and cranberry cookies  - their only crime was that they were too close to a teenager late at night. It's a good thing he's skinny. But I wonder how his tummy could hold that much oatmeal...

Phew, I'm glad that weekend's over with. Now I can go back to my normal Cinderella life...ha, ha  just kidding!!!

Oh thank you. I think we eat quite well - too bad you weren't closer - I'd share with you!
