Monday: I had to work, but worked from home. I had a hell of a time getting up at night with back pain, to the point I had a hard time walking and had to grab the walls to make it to the restroom. So I asked work if I could work from home and they said that was fine.
So Monday night came (7pm) and I was hosting recipe club for the mom's club! It was BBQ themed and I had 4 girls show up and myself - so 5 all together, which fit nicely in my house at my kitchen table. Traci bought kabobs which had the most tender chicken on them I've ever eaten! Danielle brought chicken and shrimp with a delightful ginger/soy sauce which was so good. Jen brought bbq chicken and a Tastefully simple sauce for it which was great! Jen M. brought vedallia onions which were sliced like a blooming onion, marinated and had bread crumbs on top, which was unbelievably tender and awesome!! And I made steak with a special garlic/butter sauce. And I cooked up my mom's green beans as a side. Boy did we have a FEAST!! I should have taken photos. We had so much fun. Traci left early to put her kids to bed, but the 3 others stayed until 10pm! I made a carmel apple salad (cool whip, vanilla pudding, apples and snickers bars) for dessert which was a hit. I had a great time hosting the club this month!!
Tuesday - Another full day of work. Stopped at Salvation Army on the way home to take in a ton of clothes from my brother's girlfriend who didn't want them any longer! Joe was playing baseball tonight (he wouldn't be home until late) so I picked Joey up from daycare and went over to my parent's house. It was mom's day off work so she made dinner - garlic bread and ravioli. Yum! We then had a great time trying to catch frogs (I came close but didn't catch one!) and Joey loved feeding the fish again. Soon it was bathtime - too soon for Joey who wanted to stay outside, and then we left about 8pm.
Wednesday - Worked a full day of work today too. Came home. I was really too exhausted to do too much. Jen came over from the mom's club and we worked on some club stuff until 9pm. It was nice to see her. Her and I get along so well together!!
Thurdsay - Today - whew. Worked a full day today too. Can you tell I like to talk about food? Haha. I went out to a great diner in Northville today called Steve's family restaurant on 5mile and Haggerty and first - they serve POLISH food, and second their prices were awesome! I got a polish platter which consisted of 3 pierogies, city chicken, kielbasa and saurkraut for only $6.35! What a deal and the food was soooooooo good!!
I came home and it was so hot and humid today. My car read 94 and 100% humidity on the way home! Ick!
Tonight was playdate so I tried to clean up the house. I had a sink of dishes that needed attention. Joe came home, ate, and then we went to Kensington Park for a mom's club evening playdate. Jen came (I've seen her three times this week already!) and brought her son Thomas and her friend and her son so we had a great time. We were there maybe 40 minutes when it started to pour down rain so that ended our playdate quickly.
Here are some photos from tonight!
My feet are soooo swollen lately. Check out my ankle and my foot. It's just awful! My sandals, which are loose still make marks on my feet :(
