Marvelous Monday: Well That Flew By

21 Jul

That weekend was the quickest weekend I can ever remember! I crammed so much good stuff into what seemed like such a short period of time.

so much marvelous!

so much marvelous!

Marvelous is… Friday’s dinner at Bricco with Dan’s parents. We haven’t spent much time with his parents lately because we have been so busy so it was really nice to have quality time with them. There was a long wait but it was worth it. We started with a cheese plate and I had the Kale salad with a soft cooked egg added to it (DUH). It was so yummy and I had been craving a salad for days so it definitely hit the spot.

Bad lighting but you get the idea :)

I had the leftovers for breakfast the next morning with another egg on top. I'm kind of obsessed.

Marvelous is… a brief trip to Arrigoni winery on Saturday for a tasting. I was able to fit in the trip that I had mentioned wanting to do on Friday and it was so great. The place was packed but we grabbed two spots and ended up trying all 13 wines that they were offering. My favorite was definitely the wine that tasted like maple syrup (yes I said maple syrup) which was like breakfast in a glass aka AMAZING.

Marvelous is… Alex’s birthday celebration on Saturday night. It was truly a great night with friends and delicious food and I definitely enjoyed some yummy wine. I had a little bit of a headache yesterday morning when I woke up but it was totally worth it because it was an awesome night.

I made the Bacon Bacon dip in the bread bowl which was so good. And that taco dip was AMAZING!

Marvelous is… a visit to the Coventry farmer’s market yesterday afternoon with Dan and Kevin. It was a beautiful day and after helping Alex clean up from the party, we headed over there and I was able to stock up on a few things that I was running out of, including Pure Love granola and some wasabi chive goat cheese that I can’t wait to enjoy with tonight’s dinner. We were craving junk food so we each got a grilled cheese from the Caseus Cheese truck, Mine had guacamole on it and it was perfection.

There should also be a sign that says "best hangover food" :)

Marvelous is… a heavenly Sunday night dinner at home. I picked up some shrimp while grocery shopping on Saturday since it was on sale and we were trying to decide how to cook it for dinner so I looked through my recipes on Pinterest and found one for Skinny Bang Bang shrimp on The Cookie Rookie similar to the dish from Bonefish Grill. It was so easy and so delicious. The sauce basically consisted of plain greek yogurt, sweet chili sauce, and sriracha. We grilled the shrimp on kabobs and had loaded baked potatoes to go with them. It was one of the best dinners we have made in a long time.

I wish I could eat this meal every single night.

As you can tell, it was a weekend packed to the brim with SO much fun and I wish I could do it all over again. I hope everyone has a great week!
