It's the post holiday blahs... kids have all gone back to college, and the best friend went back home. Nothing left but the laundry! It was a great weekend though. As usual, I've laughed until I literally can't breathe. I don't know what it is about having the girls around. College girls are a blast but it's my friend Lori that literally causes me to die laughing. And when you get the whole crew together silliness abounds!
As I said, today is laundry day. After doing this all day long I'm just now about to walk into the laundry room without stepping on a pile of clothes, towels, or sheets. But there is more to do. (Always) Needless to say I'm not feeling like being creative in the kitchen. I had planned to grill tonight but it's 105 again today and the hubby is doing his draft with the guys from work. So it's a fast food, carry-out kind of night. But I had planned way earlier in the day when I was feeling more ambitious to make the tequila lime chicken I saw PW make.
I don't have all the ingredients but what I DO have is a pitcher of leftover margaritas in the freezer. (Can you believe there is leftover margs?) So I added some lime juice to it, some garlic, and some fresh cilantro. I gave it a whirl in the blender and added a dash or two of olive oil. The chicken is marinating and will hopefully be cooked tomorrow and will turn out just fine. (I'll let you know)
My poor little Boo dog had to go to the vet twice today. I thought she was hurting from arthritis or back pain but it turns out she was running a fairly high fever. If they could only talk!!! :( After 2 shots in the hiney she's already perked up. I'm so glad.
In other lake news... we rescued some people on the lake Sunday who were having an engine fire on their boat. We got their little kiddos onto our boat and got them to the shoreline and got the boat to the ramp. So scary!!! I can't believe how many people went by them and didn't stop. It's disappointing.
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
