Weekend Round Up

Here is what we ate on Saturday...

Breakfast - Our power went out during the night and didn't come back on until 10am. So, we ate apples and played outside. It was fantastic.

Snack - Raw nuts and kombucha juice.

Lunch - Salmon salad sandwiches and red pepper.

Blake, Rhett and I were talking over lunch about how Blake can get some guitar time in while he's here for the summer. We started joking about how he could go downtown into Old Town Alexandria and set up on the pier where there are tons of people walking by. We laughed about all of the different outfits he could wear....the naked cowboy of Alexandria, his thrift store purple jumpsuit, etc. A few minutes after lunch Blake comes up from his room in his purple jumpsuit with guitar in hand. Long (and funny) story short, he went downtown and played his guitar and harmonica, sang songs and Seth played the drums. It was such a fun afternoon.....and he made $30 to boot!

Dinner - Because of the power outage, the kids had pancake saturday several hours late. These were a combination of oat groats and buckwheat that I soaked overnight. I put that in the blender with an egg and some nutmeg.

Rhett and I got to go out to dinner for our anniversary. We were planning on eating at Mt. Vernon, but there was a wedding reception. So, we drove down the George Washington Parkway and ate at the Cedar Knoll Inn. Rhett got roasted duck, and I got chicken. The food was good, but the company was better.

Here is what we ate on Sunday....

Breakfast - Goat yogurt with agave, blueberries and raw oatmeal.

Lunch - Sunday nachos. Blue chips, refried beans, guac and raw cheese.

Dinner - Brown rice pasta with tomato sauce and spinach mixed in. Fresh herb salad.

Treat - I had some raw pecans that have been sitting for a while. So, I made some dairy free pecan sandies. Pecans, flour, brown sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla. Yum!

My brother is a guitar player and had a couple house shows while he was at school this past year. Fictionist, Libbie Linton, Drew Danburry, and Julia Mecham. Blake has been playing Fictionist while he's been here and I've completely fallen in love with them.
