Family Dinner

Today was spent like most other Sundays. First up was church, then grocery-list making/coupon clipping, a little bit of laundry, Target & the grocery store, more laundry, lots of grading (how am I behind already?!), & finally, around 5:00PM, I headed up to my parent’s house for dinner.

Chris was practicing with his band this evening, & my sister was up visiting at my parents, so it made sense that I joined in on the fun (& free food!).

When I first arrived, we decided to do some pug glamour shots! I swear he actually likes this. 😉

He’s exposing himself; rude.


He looks thrilled, doesn’t he?!

On the menu tonight – grilled steak (more red meat!), baked potato, asparagus, & a dinner roll.

I was only able to eat about half of the steak, & I brought the rest home for Chris.

Someone wanted in on the action!


Dessert was delish… Tastefully Simple’s Nana’s Apple Cake.


I plopped a spoonful of Nutella on mine (Duh! Just be happy I didn’t put some on top of my steak!) & heated it in the microwave for 15 seconds before adding a side of vanilla ice cream.


Now, I’m back at home enjoying what’s left of the weekend. I’m hoping to get a little time to read tonight; I’m currently reading Sarah’s Key, but I haven’t had a chance to pick it up in forever!

Do you have any Sunday-night “rituals”? I always try to convince Chris that I need a back massage to “get ready for the week”. 😉

Have you ever tried anything from Tastefully Simple? I have some beer bread in my cabinet that’s about to get used up!

    Pshhh, no error message is going to stop me from commenting 😉

    YOUR PUG IS ADORABLE. He definitely gives Popcorn a run for his money!

    My Sunday night usually consists of something low key and relaxing. Oh, and onvincing Will to give me a massage is an EVERY night ritual for me 😉

    My Sunday night consists of getting the kids to bed as fast as I can so I can enjoy what little quite time I have before the weekends over. Tastefully simple is great and perfect for people like me, lol. Love the bacon bacon dip :-). Hey you could whip up that beer bread and I will make the dip and we could have a party :-).

    How CUTE is your dog! Ah! Gosh, I miss having a dog. :(

    I love that you are obsessed with Nutella! I share your love.

    I am all about traditions. Our Sunday tradition is to spend time with our “little brother.” It is a GREAT way to end the week. We also used to do BFD (Breakfast For Dinner) and I think it is time to bring it back!

      I contemplated replenishing my Nutella supply at the grocery store this week but realized that was something better left on the shelf so I don’t continue to eat it by the spoonful!

      LOVE BFD! I need to make BFD stat!
