Not a great weekend for the blog, but man did we have a great time!
Friday night, we went to the Brandywine Strawberry Festival, which has little to do with strawberries, other than it takes place during strawberry season and they sell strawberry shortcake. Really, it's just a carnival, but a certain little girl got to meet and hug Elmo, so we can count it as a success.
Saturday, we had the first pizza night of the season with my parents, sister, brother in law and niece. It was a great (and yummy) night, but since I'm a lazy ass, I forgot to take pictures of our masterpieces. Usually when we make pizza in groups, we each design a pie and then share slices. I know we had a red pie with sausage, peppers and onions, another with CSA broccoli, spinach and black olives, a basil pesto with spinach and black olives, and a pesto with sausage, broccoli and spinach. It's taken a couple of years, but Peter has become a pizza making pro out there. Plus he's pretty cute while doing it.
Sunday was a super long day. We started out heading to my aunt and uncle's house in Baltimore. My cousin Adam recently finished Army training and this was a chance for everyone to see him before he has to report to his new base in Colorado. It was a gorgeous day, and really great to see our family that we do not get to see often enough. From there we drove up to Collingswood to spend the night with Peter's parents in anticipation of him helping his parents get some work done around their house on Monday. Of course Little Miss fell asleep in the car on the ride up from Baltimore and then had no interest in going to sleep at her normal time. It wouldn't have been a big deal, except she and I had big plans to avoid having to do manual labor on Monday.
Unfortunately, it was back to the grind today, although I did make a rather nice meal to use up almost everything left over from last week's CSA share. The only thing we have left in the crisper is a bag of arugula, and it still looks great, so it will not be going to waste. A full recap will have to wait, 14 hour shifts are not fun on a full night's rest, they're really not fun when you start out tired.
