Weekend with the fam

This weekend was so nice. Loryn, my best friend since 3rd grade (!) and I drove up to Waco to stay with my mom and Steve. We watched lots of movies, went out on the lake, and cooked up a storm.

Breakfast Parfait

Bottom layer: 1/4 cup oat bran microwaved for 1 minute with 1/3 cup coconut milk then stuck in the freezer until cool

Middle layer: Plain greek yogurt with mashed melted frozen banana and vanilla

Top layer: 2 tbsp cashew butter and nana slices

Chili Zuch Fries

Slice a large zucchini and summer squash into thin rounds. Spray a pan with canola oil. Distribute the rounds around the pan and spray with canola oil again. DOUSE in chili pepper. Add a sprinkling of cayenne pepper and fresh ground sea salt and pepper. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. Stir around and broil for a couple minutes, until darker brown. If you want them to be crispier, squeeze out excess water with a towel before baking.

A beautiful dinner! Lobster, salad, burgers, and squash fries!

Light Watermelon Margaritas

Blend: 3 cups watermelon, half a peeled lime, 2 shots tequila, 1 shot cointreau, dash of salt, ice

  1. My weekend was a little tedious. Road trip on Saturday (stuck in the back of the car with my very very money-conscious aunt’s family) and dentist + mooching around on Sunday. Ah well, I’m glad you had a great weekend! Your dinner looks fabulous! πŸ™‚


  2. What a delicious meal! I want one of those watermelon margaritas.

    The weekend was good – went to the Dallas Farmers Market again…lots of new pics up on the blog. You should come to Dallas and I’ll take you! πŸ™‚

  3. Everything you eat looks so tasty! I keep shying away from the summer squash at the grocery store, but I may have to pick some up now. πŸ˜€

    That’s so cool that you have friends from grade school. I think my oldest friend goes back to probably 9th or 10th grade, but we don’t stay in touch as much as I would wish. I’m glad that you got to spend time with yours! =)
