Wow, I have so much to post about today! It starts with some good finds and ends with some good food.
First of all, I went garage saleing yesterday and found quite a few things we have been looking for. The first garage sale I went to on my way to work and I found 2 short rocking-style chairs that would be awesome for playing cards on a coffee table, playing video games, or as additional seating. They are 15 years old and could be painted or refinished and I could make cushions for the seats. I got both chairs for $7.
Then, on my way back to work after lunch with a friend at my fav, Tejas, I stopped at another garage sale and found a kitchen table and chairs. We sold our old table and chairs on Craigslist a month ago and have been desperate for a new one that properly fit in the small space. I bought a counter-top height table with 4 chairs for $50. I could only fit the chairs in my little Civic, so we are borrowing a larger vehicle and picking up the table today. What great finds!
Our next great thing is that we are almost finished with the YMCA Lazyman Triathlon. We have 12 more miles of biking and we are finishing that together this afternoon!
Finally, our camping food prep was a total success. In 3 ½ hours in the kitchen, we came out with:
Grilled Potato Salad (this takes forever!)
Blue Cheese Vinaigrette
Granola with Hemp Seeds and Dried Fruit
My family’s signature chip dip (secret recipe!)
Bok Choy Salad
Ramen Salad Topping
A secret surprise we are bringing camping (which took a ton of prep)
We were constantly moving in the kitchen, but we’re happy to be done with it. We will be sure to post pictures once the dishes are assembled. Right now we have the food set up in individual baggies/continers to put in the coolers today.
Hope you all have a great weekend!!
