Once the yard work was done, we soaked up some sun in the backyard while Sadie chased shadows, lizards and reflecting lights. She’s quite the huntress.
Ryan and I felt like we were laying out at a resort because his mom set up a fan and brought us water with fresh lemon slices. Talk about relaxing!
Around 12:30 we showered up and headed out to Mi Pueblo, a nearby restaurant, for lunch.
As we were seated, a big basket of tortilla chips and salsa were placed in front of us and I downed several of the chips ‘n’ salsa immediately.
They had a great selection of lunch entrées, and I ordered a large shrimp and avocado salad.
I think the salad came with 3/4 of an avocado. I was in Mexican food heaven and ate every last bite.
Though I was feelin’ full, when we arrived home I couldn’t resist a little sweet treat.
These cookies are crunchy, light and full of cinnamony spices. Ryan’s mom sent Ryan a huge box for his birthday before and we ate them by the handful. They’re phenomenal and I always swipe a few from his mom’s stash when we come to visit. Yum!
Now it’s time to join Ryan on the couch for the USA vs. England World Cup soccer game. I’m not gonna lie, I’m not exactly a soccer super-fan, so I’m hoping to coerce Ryan and his family into a round or two of Scrabble. 😉
Though I’m still full from lunch I can’t wait for Thanksgiving dinner tonight! 😀
