Hello Friends, I hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day weekend!

Father's Day 2013 003

Hubby had a nice one even with a change in dinner plans, but I was able to pull off what I think was a better meal than what we would have had at a restaurant.  Yesterday he played a little one-on-one with Malik and fortunately, no injuries were sustained!

Father’s Day Dinner was baked Salmon, Spinach Shrimp Salad and Dill Potato Salad. Daddy’s (not mine) dessert was Lemon Meringue Pie and Talenti Gelato Mediterranean Mint.

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a good Sunday

Yesterday after car shopping we stopped at Dutch Country Farmers Market to drop off the vacuum cleaner hose for repair.  After checking in on Foursquare, I unlocked a Loyalty Badge and was awarded 1 lb of FREE Chicken Tenders from Stoltzfus BBQ.  It was definitely a pleasant surprise and was going to be a perfect match for The Ghost Hot Sauce that I had just purchased.

Tired and hungry we drove over to Los Machados Mexican Restaurant  for a take out lunch.  This was my second time ordering the Texana Salad and it’s delicious; lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions are topped with large succulent shrimp, tender and perfectly seasoned slices of beef and chicken.  I added a few drops of The Ghost Hot Sauce to the salsa dressing and BOOM it was on like popcorn!

Hubby ordered the Vegetarian Delight #10; veggies cooked on the grill, served over a bed of rice and topped with cheese.  Tayair had the Enchiladas Supreme; 1 chicken, 1 bean and 1 cheese and beef enchilada topped with lettuce, tomato, guacamole and sour cream.  This family style, authentic Mexican restaurant is colorful with a fun atmosphere and the next time we’ll dine in so that I can order from it’s impressive bar.

Have a fantabulous afternoon – Smooches!

dedivahdeals signature

God blessed us with another gorgeous summer weekend and today I am plowing through Monday like a turtle on steroids!   This morning I had to add extra spinach and kale to my green smoothie because I over did it with the sodium and suds.   Yesterday afternoon good friends of ours stopped by the house after leaving Maryland en-route home to New York.   Anytime someone visits us from Maryland I always have just one request – BRING SOME CRABS!!!!   In our house summer isn’t complete without sitting at the table covered in newspaper with a bowl of melted butter and hot sauce cracking open steamed crabs covered in Old Bay Seasoning.   Of course I must wash it down with a cold beer!   Add some boiled corn (which I forgot), potato salad and shrimp and everything is right with the world.

 

 

This outfit was laid out last week, and it’s perfect for today because it’s covering the results of too much sodium and suds but oh it was so well worth it!
