Marvelous Monday: Laying Low

7 Nov

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend filled with as much activity or relaxation as you desired. For the first time in what seems like a year, we laid low for the majority of the weekend, or at least what feels like laying low to us 😉

Thank you as always to Katie for hosting!

Marvelous is… happy hour and dinner at Birch Hill Tavern on Friday evening. Birch Hill is basically right next to our house and I knew I didn’t want to cook since our kitchen was fully clean for the first time since our housewarming party so we split two apps (the prosciutto & fig flatbread and the brussels sprouts) and a burger (the Rex burger). It was quick, easy and allowed us to be home in time to watch the UConn football game aka the biggest disaster ever.

Marvelous is… I found this recipe for the BEST red wine brownies and baked them on Saturday afternoon. Yes, red wine brownies. Make them NOW. You will not be disappointed.

Marvelous is… a surprise birthday party at Silver Lane bowling alley for our friend Kody’s birthday. There were tons of awesome people there, pitchers of beer, and the bowling alley pizza that has always had my heart.

Marvelous is… meal prepping on Sunday afternoon. I have really been trying to make an effort to prep as much food as possible for the week since we are both so busy and eating healthy is a priority for us. I made our lunches which are a chicken quesadillas with greek yogurt for dipping and a side of roasted spaghetti squash. I also roasted a butternut squash to have as a side for some of our dinners.

Marvelous is… a Sunday afternoon and evening filled with football, snacks, and pot roast for dinner. I also was able to get some blogging done (hence this post) and it just felt good to relax and do exactly what I felt like doing.

That was our weekend in a nutshell and I’m feeling quite prepared for this week. Since I finally had some time to blog, look out for some more posts this week as we have a lot of catching up to do!
