We have spent the past two days trying to catch up from being on a trip. Catching up on sleep, laundry, grocery shopping...all those things that are on the to-do list when you've been gone!
I am so glad we went to the Northeast when we did because I heard on the news yesterday that it was 101 degrees in Boston! Oh my word. I can't begin to imagine walking around in that heat. I know that would have been miserable!
My family was so happy to have a homecooked meal last night. As good as the food was on vacation, it still gets a little old eating bagels and sandwiches and the only green vegetable you eat for days is salad. So last night I made a pork tenderloin, rice, squash, and green beans. Then for dessert I made some really yummy peaches with angel food cake. Peaches are so good this time of year, aren't they? Steve's brother is up here from Florida doing some work in the mountains and yesterday he stopped at a little stand on his way back and got all these peaches and plums! Don't they look good?
This is the dessert I made. It's so easy...kind of like a trifle, but not as fancy.
Peaches and Angel Food Cake
Tear or cut angel food cake into squares and place in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch dish.
Layer with sliced fresh peaches.
Mix together 1 large container of light Cool Whip and 1/2 can of condensed milk. Pour Cool Whip mixture over peaches. Refrigerate.
I have been trying to read this summer, but I really want to focus more on that over the next month or so because I never get to read once school starts. Last night I picked up a little book I must have bought or someone gave me a long time ago that I just layed on my bedside table and never really opened. It is Just When I Thought I'd Dropped My Last Egg by Kathie Lee Gifford.
I know alot of people don't like her for whatever reason, but I have always liked her ever since she was on Regis and Kathie Lee! Anyway...the book is just short little essays and such a quick read. I read the whole thing in one night. And it was so funny (with a little bit of "saltiness" I will warn you). But it will make you laugh!
Speaking of laughing, Steve had a friend send him this video the other day and we laughed so hard. If you have kids, you need to watch it. They hit the nail on the head with this one!!
We have some fun things planned for this week...
1-We are hoping to see Toy Story 3 this week. Have you seen it? I have heard so much about it. I know I will cry, but I heard it was such a good movie. I am looking forward to it!
2-Thursday night I am taking dinner to a couple in our Sunday School class who just had a little girl. I am hoping to get together for lunch with another friend from our class, too.
3-I know this is sad, but I just now got Ashley's wedding pictures back, so now I need to put them into a wedding album. I found a really pretty black leather album that I like, so that is a project I will be working on.
4-Steve and I are going to see Michael Buble on Saturday night. If you've been reading my blog very long, you know how much I love him, so I can't wait!
Today it's off to the pool with Ashley, Laura, and my two nieces. We are trying to stay cool here. Hope you are too!
