Late this afternoon, Sadie and I accompanied Ryan to Red Bug Park to watch his soccer game. We arrived a good 30 minutes before his game was scheduled to start, so Sadie and I went on a walk to explore the area.
Truth be told, I just had to get her far away from Ryan as he warmed up because she wouldn’t stop lunging forward, trying to get to her dad.
Doesn’t she look bored with my love? Playing soccer looked like so much more fun than playing with Mama. Apparently I don’t take puppy rejection very well because her blasé attitude only encouraged me to be extra loving. “You will love me back, dog!”
Eventually Ryan’s game started and we settled in under a shady tree.
Sadie didn’t miss a play. I took the opportunity to multitask and caught up with my friend Michaela on the phone while simultaneously cheering for Ryan.
Unfortunately Ryan’s team lost by one point. We headed home feeling a bit discouraged, but bounced back after enjoying a yummy dinner.
The base of our meal was whole wheat penne pasta that we topped with roasted cauliflower and homemade cheese sauce.
I made the cheese sauce by following this recipe while Ryan showered and got cleaned up after his game.
It was great and very filling!
Off to catch the latest episode of America’s Next Great Restaurant! I love watching people brainstorm restaurant concepts and come up with fun foodie ideas.
Question of the Evening
- If you opened your own restaurant, what type of cuisine would you serve?
I’m going to bypass the whole restaurant thing and say I’d open up my own sweets shop. I’d sell frozen yogurt, baked goods and homemade candies and live life on a sugar high!
