Ahhhh! I managed to squeak in a day off smack dab in the middle of wedding season. I was able to catch up on house work, Compass Coatings work, laundry, a glorious bike ride, pedicure, and a trip to the Goodwill where I scored on a George Foreman grill for 4 bucks. Go me!!! I’ve been wanting one of these for a while now and had to try it out as soon as I walked in the door (well after a good cleaning off course):
I promptly grilled up a yellow squash I got at our local and famous Parkesdale Farms. Tommorow’s post will showcase all the goodies I got for only 10 bucks. I’m on a bargain shopping roll!
The grill worked great and the only visible wear was the “George Foreman logo” coming off the top. And it was missing the drip tray, but I can deal with that. Oh, paninis here I come.
Here’s a shot of my makeshift drip tray:
Dinner was another grilling creation. Creole grilled cod with mango salsa.
The salsa was a use up of my produce drawer: Dice the following: 1 mango, 1 cucumber (deseeded), 2 Roma tomatoes, 1 avocado, 1 red bell pepper, 1/2 red onion, 1 jalapeno. Squeeze a lime and a lemon in, drizzle with olive oil and add salt and pepper.
Another glorious part of my day was spent catching up on blog reading where I was inspired to make this Baked Oatmeal:
Thanks Katie, it turned out great. I can’t wait to eat it for breakfast tomorrow. But for, now, Good night!
