Hey guys! Happy Sunday to ya 😀 Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! We’re still having a blasty here in Tucson and even though it’s a bummer we leave tonight, I’m excited to see the puppies.. I miss their little faces
(Megan, who’s watching the little munchkins, emailed that to me)
We had a beautiful brunch at my nana’s house after I last posted.
She used to own a catering company and everything she makes is guaranteed to be a delicious feast. For this impromptu gathering, she had made green chili egg soufflé with pico de gallo, country potatoes, sausage, wheat biscuits, fruit platter, blueberry pancakes, muffins and a Bundt cake. It was heavenly.
Here’s my plate:
Egg soufflé (which I went back for seconds of- it’s my favorite), watermelon, wheat biscuit, cantaloupe and strawberries.
We went to church, which I’ve missed so much but can’t stand our church in V-town so I haven’t been in FOREVER, and then after spending time with the guy (or woman) in the sky, I came home to fend for myself against a spiteful anonymous comment – good times, good times.
After that little adrenaline kick, I met up with some fellow bloggies at Frost – a gelato shop here that I’d never tried before!
And “the goods”:
I got the cantaloupe and mango sorbet, which were dairy-free (and still creamy! How’d they do that?!) and super refreshing. We’ll be back for sure!
We had so much fun chatting with everyone, and afterwards we hit up Fleet Feet to shop it up.
They did the thing where they made me run on the treadmill barefoot:
And then we watched it in slow-mo- my right foot is still pronating:
I tried on a lot of shoes but picked my trusty Asics:
And the pilot found the camera on the treadmill and snapped a pic of himself:
After our awesome bloggy meet-up, we went to the madre’s casa, where she was grilling out dinner for the familia.
I made the guacamole using the standard ingredients and ate some atop brown rice chips:
And MY FAVORITE SALSA!
Madre made grilled sockeye salmon for me (with maple syrup, orange juice and zest, salt, pepper and ginger)
And steaks for everyone else (yes, we have a huge family! I think around 12 people were over last night)
Peppers and onions:
I made a salmon salad and topped it with grilled veggies and peppers:
Well I’m off to pack and enjoy our last day here with the familia. We have an overnight flight back to Jacksonville and then we’re driving back to Valdosta in the morning. I’ll see ya in the near future, proably delirious, from the airport 😉
