Heeeello, hello!

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!

Our main dish was Chicken Parmesan with noodles & extra sauce.

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.

We’ve got:

  • 1/2 a banana
  • Cantaloupe
  • Peach
  • Apple

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!
