Oh, Hello Weekend!

My weekend has been great! It started with breakfast at Cracker Barrel with my dad...we try to do this whenever my husband has to work a Saturday, although D has come a few times too! And believe me, I never lived it down one day when he ended up being home and I didn't invite him, oh, boy...

One Saturday when he was supposed to work:

D: Is it just you and your dad or am I invited too?
 Me: It is just me and my dad. I don't want to spring an extra meal/bill on him without him knowing...he thinks it's just me and he might just want to see me. (he asked me like 3 times to come along)
D: *pout* pout* pout*

I get to breakfast and it comes up that D ended up not having to work:

Dad: Well then why didn't you bring him?

me: *knows the wrath I will face now when I get home* Ugh.


What nice start to the weekend!

We also had some of these which I had not had in years...

We had even more rain and yes my yard is normally picture perfect woodlands...(not)

I made us a snack of homegrown tomatoes, and our peppers were looking good too.

D talked me into going to the store for shrimp and then I was talked into clams as well...they were AWESOME!

We took the shellfish, onions and garlic, a little bacon, parsley, and scallions cooked with some butter...

White wine...

Topped with parsely and scallions. Totally awesome and flavorful.
