Ahhh, all I wanted all week was a relaxing unscheduled weekend and I am so happy it’s here. I tried to make as few plans as possible (aside from a big BBQ we’re hosting Sunday) and its been a simple and awesome Saturday.
Summer fruit and green tea
Fun, long walk to the park…one Charlie and I have never gone to, so it was fun to explore
Recognize those houses from Full House? Used to love that show
From the park, the fog looked like it was going to roll in
But so far, it’s managed to stay away and it’s been super sunny all day.
Charlie played in the dog area. Watching dogs play together is one of my happy things, they always look so incredibly excited
Read four magazines, ran errands, etc…
And baked! I made Cookie (basically brownie batter poured over cookie dough). I’ve been seeing them around the blog world recently and thought they’d be perfect to try for tomorrow’s BBQ. How could that combo be anything but good?!
They’re not the least bit healthy and since this is “Simple Saturday,” I cheated, went the easy route and just used a mix. I have a great brownie recipe, but wasn’t into taking the time today. Still, even baking with a mix is relaxing and counts as my happy/grateful thing today too.
Haven’t tried them yet because I’m saving them for the BBQ, but will let you know. I’m making a quinoa salad too….to make up for the indulgent dessert
And in other foodie news– i walked through a street festival and this was the menu at one of the booths:
Fried kool aid??? I can’t figure out what that would even look like??? Disgusting…but weirdly tempted to order it just to find out!
How’s your Saturday?
How often do you take a “day off” and don’t make plans on purpose?
Fried kool aid? What do you think it is??
