Happy Tuesday (and happy snow day if you are in the DMV-area!)
1) The D.C. area was treated to an impromptu 4-day weekend this past weekend with President’s Day and then a snow day today due to a moderate snow storm that hit the area starting on Monday late-afternoon and lasting until the wee hours of Tuesday morning. As I type Tommy is hard at work shoveling our driveway while one of our neighbor’s kids throws snow balls at him, lol.
2) This past weekend was busy hosting people at our house (as you can imagine I was in heaven!) On Sunday, I had two friends from graduate school come over for brunch. I was in charge of the “entree” , a Simple Spinach quiche, which has made its way onto the blog a couple of times – here and here + beverages (mimosas and coffee). Hannah brought a huge fruit platter + her dog Scuba to play with Violet, while Nova baked some delicious muffins.
4) Tommy and I finally decided to give Blue Apron a try. I saw a deal for the meal service on Gilt one day in December and decided to purchase it as a stocking stuffer for Tommy. The deal included three meals + all ingredients for a week. We are in love with it! On Monday night Tommy made us Whole Wheat Rigatoni with Wild Mushrooms & Swiss Chard.
5) Tomorrow night a couple friends and I have plans to see 50 Shades of Grey after work…we’ll see how we like it. 🙂
Hope you have a great day!
