Dinner at Mor mor’s
Happy Hump Day everyone! I hate that term yet I still find myself using it. It seems dirty.
It was stormy this morning so I wanted a warm breakfast but have had alot of oats lately and I ran out of peanut butter:( so I decided to go with eggs. Some one told me to eat two eggs in the morning for calories and so I did my best!
It was good, I ate it all. I’ll be honest though, I was full until 3pm so this might not be such a good idea since eating both breakfast and lunch probably adds up to more calories than this big breakfast. Or maybe I should try harder to get that lunch in whether I’m hungry or not..hmmm.
When I got home the rain had stopped for a moment and my garden looked so beautiful I just had to take some pictures. Here’s are my gorgeous chives.
Tonight Shane and I went to Mor mor’s for dinner. Mor mor is my grandma and since she embraces her Swedish heritage we call her grandma in Swedish which is Mor mor and means mother’s mother. I lived with her for a while when I was in college and she’s such a joy to be around. We drank tea and chatted before bustling around the kitchen making dinner. Its always fun to cook at her house because she has so many fun little random ingredients! We made, bread crumb tilapia, ribeye steak (for Shane), fruit salad, green salad, baked potatoes and bread for the occasion! We were having so much fun we seriously almost made asparagus too but realized we had plenty of food the route we were going.
Then green salad that contained lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, basil and green onions and a dressing I made with just lemon juice, olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic and salt.
Oh my goodness it was so good! It was equally awesome making it though since we were enjoying the kitchen so much. The whole time it was storming like crazy outside with tons of lightning and thunder and pouring rain!
Now Shane and I are chilling at home while the storm rages on out there! I love exciting weather.
Question: What do you do on a stormy day?
