Here we are at the end of the work week - YAY!! I'm already planning for this to be a short work week...hoping to get out of here by 3 at the latest.
It's been a pretty good week: I managed to knit a bit (10 rows or so) on the fingerless mitt yesterday. Our appointment with our tax accountant has been booked - which means I now have a deadline to pull everything together. This past Monday I did make it back to yoga (finally) and am planning to go this coming Monday. And, I cooked!
Last night Colin came over for dinner and we had shrimp & pineapple tacos. OMG - so good!! The pineapple was tossed with some EVOO and broiled. The shrimp was tossed with some EVOO and Sriracha and broiled. There was sliced avocado, fresh cilantro and red onion (which was marinated in a bit of lime juice, sugar & salt) to go on. We all loved them and I think they would be fun to do on the grill as well.
And, Colin brought over the fixings for margaritas!! He brought a new (to me) tequila which is aged in whiskey barrels. It has a great smoky flavor.
Tequila, Cointreau, lots of lime juice and (because we had cut up a fresh pineapple for the tacos) fresh pineapple juice. Quite tasty. Tyg thought he might like a little bit too.
After dinner the guys watched Dunkirk (boy is that a noisy movie!!). Not a movie I would enjoy, but they both liked it. I read some in Sing, Unburied, Sing which I hope to finish up this weekend.
Weekend plans include the usual chores (groceries, laundry), hopefully a lot of knitting and...seeing Dee and Steve tomorrow!! Looking forward to that.
Hope your weekend is shaping up to be a good one. Enjoy!
Mmmmm......that dinner looks so yummy! Now I want a margarita and it's not even 9am.ReplyDelete

The tacos sound very summery and light. And what a winning photo of Tyg--he looks perfectly squeezable.ReplyDelete

A knit date with your guys!!!!!ReplyDelete
I want a margerita now!
I have to say ......that is a mighty SERIOUS Tyg-face!ReplyDelete
I must say it always surprises me when a cat begs for food from the table. lol! Mia does it too! I didn't grow up with cats, so I have a tendency to think of them as aloof to human food. Mia showed me I was wrong!ReplyDelete
How wonderful to have your son visit so often....love Tyg's little face!ReplyDelete
Sounds like such a lovely evening! And that little Tyg! What a cute kitty. XOReplyDelete
