Today was a good day. It stated out with watching a couple of episodes of Orange is the New Black in bed. Relaxing and easing into the day.
About 9:30 I rolled out of bed, washed my face, brushed my teeth, moisturized, brushed my hair, then threw on some clothes. Down the stairs I went. Had an apple and gathered my things to head out with my family to the beach.
Sunday is the rest of my families day to hang out with the guys and the kids. They’ve done soccer, ultimate frisbee and now they are on to beach volleyball. It’s a joy to watch them all gather, join teams and play for fun. All of the laughter and smiles on their faces makes me so happy inside. I truly enjoy watching them on Sundays.
After a bit of watching the guys, my friend, Laura, and I walked over to Armida’s tasting room for a little wine tasting. It’s always a treat, both the wine and the wonderful company.
After some wine tasting and great conversation, I made my short trek back home. I had some wonder food to prepare.
Today I made Falafel’s, Garlic Hummus, Basil Pesto and Mint Garlic Pesto. All from scratch. Everything turned out beautiful. Super yummy too.
We had the Falafel’s and some of the hummus for dinner. I’ll use both of the pesto’s this week with my meals. Yum! :)
I baked a batch and also friend a batch. I wanted to be able to compare them.
Basil Pine Nut Pesto
Mint Basil Cashew Pesto
By the way… the hummus came out kick-ass! Maybe I should rename it, Kathleen’s Kick-Ass Garlic Hummus? Ha! :)
