I don’t know about you guys, but the weather was just lovely in Northern California this weekend. It cooled down on Friday (and even drizzled a little!), which made way for a beautiful weekend in the mid 70′s. Made me feel like I was in Santa Barbara again!
Except that I’m not 20 anymore, I’m not in college anymore, I would not touch Natural Light beer with a 10 foot pole anymore, and
I can’t just roll out of bed onto my bike to get to class or work anymore whoops, I still do that ;)
Apparently I can still have fun, though, as evidenced by these photos!
Met some friends + T-Man’s coworkers at my favorite bar-that’s-2-blocks-from-my-apartment-&-has-over-200-beers! — There, we caught the end of the A’s-Giant’s game. The Giants had an awesome comeback in the top of the 9th! — Then we went to my place and played a 3 hour game of Carcassone. In-tense.
The boyfriend moved into his new house on Saturday, and we grilled! Here you see burgers, chicken thighs (marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and pepper! YUM!), and grilled zucchini, which T-Man’s roommate cooked up, and is my new all time favorite vegetable. Oh, and I roasted bell peps to top the burgers with! WIN!
On Sunday, I had a lot of time on my hands, so I set out to make a homemade pizza inspired by that amazing grilled zucchini. Then, I brought it to my boyfriend on his lunch break. Then, I was awarded the Best Girlfriend Ever trophy. (This may or may not be a self-appointed title… But hey, I’ve at least earned myself some flowers, or a bottle of wine. Amiright?!)
I will be sharing the recipe for this pizza later in the week! It. was. awesome. Also, my blog got a bit of an update this weekend! Check out the new header on my homepage! How do you like it?
Hope you have a fantastic week! Don’t let the Mondays get you down.
