Lunch at home with the girls
Melissa is a third grade teacher, so she’s been off all summer. Next week. she goes back to work, so I knew that this would be one of our last opportunities to get together for awhile.
They arrived together and brought me a giant Dunkin Donuts decaf iced coffee- a craving of mine this week.
I gave each of them some muffin mix wrapped up like the corresponding flavor.
Mom’s was blueberry, and Melissa got cinnamon apple.
They’re kind of too cute to use though!
Since my dad was feeling left out of our girl’s only lunch, I also bought him some pecan maple syrup. Hopefully, he’ll accept my little peace-offering.
Everything was purchased at a cute little specialty shop down the street from my house called Young Plantations. It is such a fun store for browsing, and it’s perfect when I’m looking for a unique gift for someone.
I just love that sort of place!
For lunch, I served my Arugula Chicken Salad but with a slight twist.
Instead of parmesan, I used goat cheese, and I used balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar.
We also had honey oat biscuits that I picked up at Young Plantations. It was my first time buying them, and they were so good!
In fact, I foresee that they will make their way onto my cravings list…
To drink, we had water flavored with cucumber and strawberries. If you haven’t tried this combo, you need to make it. It is so refreshing, especially for the summer.
I’d definitely call it a perfect afternoon.
Before I close, do you remember how I said that I couldn’t even remember the last time Lucy had an accident in the house? Well, I should have knocked on wood a little harder because she had an accident this afternoon right at my feet.
We’ll get there eventually…
What was the last dish you served to guests? Feel free to share links!
Have a great rest of the day!
