We first had a nice breakfast at her favorite restaurant called "Cafe Fresco". It's a small family owned restaurant. Very clean with simple, yet consistently lovely meals. She truly digs their French toast made on large slices of Italian bread with a couple of strips of bacon on the side.
Kristjan always enjoys and requests right away if not already on the table, their feature home made sweat bread for breakfast. Usually there is something yummy like pumpkin spice, banana nut, zucchini bread or apple spice bread in a basket. Kristjan loves it.
Friday I also had the day off. I spent most of the morning at therapy. I have patellofemoral syndrome in my right knee. Lots of pain at times. It's a bring down right now as I have had to stop walking with mom for a while until my therapy is completed.
After therapy I ran errands, got groceries, cleaned house and battled the laundry. Even with all that, it was still ten times better than being stuffed in my windowless office all day at work.
Saturday we decided to break out the grill in between rain showers after Chris brewed is latest batch of beer.
It was a beautiful spread! Nanna and Nannu came over. We played in the pool, visited, cooked and ate a great grilled meal. Bella enjoyed some new flavors as well.
Grilled plank salmon with pesto on top.
Dad's delicious garlic and parsley potatoes.
An assortment of grilled yummies. Some eggplant, zucchini, onions and apple maple chicken sausage. I love grilled veg. I think I'm just going to start grilling all my veg on Sunday so I can use it in different dishes throughout the week. There wasn't much left at all for leftovers of this meal.
