Lunch at my parent’s house was FAB, as usual! We started out with a Tomato, Basil & Mozzarella Salad, drizzled with an olive oil based dressing. SO fresh and summery!
My stack of salad with some Sweet 100 tomatoes from my Mom’s plants!
Our main dish was Chicken Parmesan with noodles & extra sauce.
Mmmm…cheesy, saucy deliciousness…what’s not to love??
Dessert was a Homemade Peach Tart. This was fresh peaches, spices and a crunchy almond topping, all wrapped in a golden-brown pie crust.
Go Mom! This had so many wonderful flavors and textures – from the sweet peaches and fragrant nutmeg, to the flaky crust and crunchy almonds. AMAZING!
After lunch my Mom and made a Costco run where I picked up some additional supplies for meals this week – all to the tune of $10. If you’re debating on joining a Costco or Sam’s Club – I’d definitely suggest joining with a family member or friend. That way you can split the cost of the yearly fee AND split some of the big bulk groceries. My Mom and I picked up two things (to be revealed later this week 😉 ) and split them both. Win-win!
By the time I wrapped everything up, it was dinnertime! I wasn’t super hungry (thanks Costco sample day!) so I made myself a big Mixed Fruit Bowl for dinner.
- 1/2 a banana
This filled me up, without weighing me down. Know what I mean?
Oooo boy, I am not ready to go back to work tomorrow – it was so nice having a three day weekend! Labor day, labor day, labor day… This will be the mantra that I keep repeating to myself for the next two weeks! 😀
Have a good night everyone!
What’s your favorite pie? Do you prefer cream based, or fruit/berry based pies?
I’ve got a soft spot for Dutch Apple Pie – love that crumbly crust on top!
