Baking, fro yo, friends and family

This weekend…

Craig came back from being out of town. He has had to use up vacation days because they expire at the end of this month. So, he went up north and enjoyed a change of scenery. It was so good to have him back! We really haven’t been apart much, so I was missing him like crazy while he was gone. So were the kitties. 🙂

I baked the strawberry rhubarb crumble I made a year ago because I was craving it.

I went to Yo Mama and got cake batter and pistachio frozen yogurt.

This mama (my friend Danielle) got hers totally free because she’s a mama to two cute little girls. I asked if cat children counted, but sadly they didn’t (I wasn’t the only weirdo who asked that apparently). Yo Mama in Tosa had a buy one get one free deal, so Danielle’s first fro yo from there was totally on the house. Lucky girl. She loved the cake batter like I do.

Before that, we had walked a big loop around Hart Park, through a neighborhood in Tosa and then went to Outpost after fro yo because she had never been to the Outpost before. It was a lovely day for a long walk with an old friend.

I needed to balance out the sweetness of the yogurt, so Craig and I had salads for dinner. He requested croutons and I picked up a yummy cheese and garlic natural variety from Outpost. Mmm…they hit the spot!

Today, we took Craig’s mama, Kathy, out for breakfast. We tried to eat at Blue’s Egg but it was packed, so we went with our second choice.

I had a breakfast wrap with hash browns. I ate this whole plate and regretted it later since I didn’t really eat much else all day.

I didn’t get to see my mom today, but I am glad I spent her birthday with her. It’s always hard since her birthday falls right before mother’s day. My brother went over to my parents’ house, so at least she got to see one of her 7 kids! We’re going to do a mother’s day redo together by going to Cedarburg on one of my furlough Fridays. I haven’t been there since I was a kid so I am looking forward to that.

I ran some errands to Target and Kohl’s, pumped up the tires in my bike and went for a ride around the block and then took long walk with Craig. After all of that running around, I read magazines in bed and relaxed for a little while.

And now I am going to go work on a review of a product, which I hope to post early this week! I’ve been enjoying using it this weekend and it’s something I always wanted for my kitchen.
