140.0…School’s Out For Summer!

Wednesday night was all about the leftovers.

15-Minute Chicken & Rice Dinner. The rice reheated a bit dry so I added hot sauce to it. Fixes most issues.

Thursday morning’s breakfast was scrambled egg beaters with salsa, shredded cheddar, Cholula hot sauce and a side of pineapple.

After I dropped my son off at school, I took my daughter to the dentist. After I dropped her off at school, I came back home to meet my mom. She came down for the day to go shopping with me. She used to come down all the time before my dad got sick. I was glad to spend some quality time with her.

We ended up having lunch at Bloomingdales. I started with a cup of cream of jalapeno soup.

It needed lots of salt and pepper. Bland. You wouldn’t think cream of jalapeno soup would be bland, but it was.

My entree was the Salmon Caprese.

Bland too. Ugh! The salmon was overcooked and dry and the tomatoes had no taste.

We picked up the kids from school and came home. We all went to dinner at our club. We shared their homemade chips and onion dip.

This stuff is like crack. I couldn’t stop eating it.

Another thing I’m obsessed with is the wedge salad. If there’s one on the menu, it’s hard for me not to order it.

My entree was grilled fish tacos.

Today’s breakfast was a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and a grapefruit.

I took the kids to school and stayed for a few “end of the school year” events. Today was the last day of school. I can’t believe it. How does the year go by so quickly!?!

Today was a half day at school. The kids and I do the same thing every half day. We go to McDonald’s for lunch. This time we brought it home.June 2013 119

I know I’ve complained about their grilled chicken sandwich many times before (that’s what I usually order) but I’ve discovered a new thing to order: their Premium Grilled Chicken & Ranch McWrap. I actually like this.  I did also eat some fries and chicken nuggets that my kids didn’t eat. :)

So now dinner is in the slow cooker and laundry is getting done. I am NOT traveling this weekend and it feels beyond incredible.

What was your favorite thing to do during summer vacation?
