Woof Wednesday

Ralph is not doing very well. She had not been eating much since we got back from Wyoming, so we took her to the vet last Friday. She was diagnosed with an abscessed tooth, and we are giving her antibiotics and pain meds, but she is still eating very little. We are very worried about our girl. She sleeps a lot, but she still loves tummy rubs.

Home Improvement

I have been working on some projects this summer. First, I stripped, sanded, and refinished an old kitchen table that we found. Then I painted one of the spare rooms. It is ivory with a navy accent wall. We are both really pleased with it.

More painting and home improvement projects on the books for this week, so no fancy dinners.

Monday: Chicken-Mushroom Lettuce Wraps with Salad

Meal Plan Monday #52

I didn't post last week, because I didn't know what we'd be eating in advance. We went to Wyoming for vacation. It was amazing and beautiful. We went to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Snow King Resort in Jackson was our base for the week.

We ate out most nights, but we did cook two nights. I made a variation of the spicy chicken pasta that I've posted on here before with lots of spring vegetables, and our friend Mai-Li made grilled chicken and spinach-basil orzo. Our last night, we ate an amazing dinner at Local. It's a bit pricey, but the Chef's Burger is the best hamburger I have ever eaten.

This week, we'll try to get back into a regular routine. I am working on customizing the house that we bought last summer. We are finally getting around to painting the guest rooms. It is also very hot here, so we'll eat quick indoor dinners and cook some outside.

Sunday: Pasta and Sauce

Monday: Jerk Chicken Skewers with Bell Peppers, Onions, and Mushrooms

Tuesday: Hamburgers with Grilled Corn Guacamole and Grilled Brussels Sprouts

Wednesday: Seared Halibut Steaks with Salad

Thursday: BBQ Chicken Sandwiches with Chips

Friday: Date Night! Joint Pick!
