Sunday Eats

By Tara Zandra | May 22, 2016

It’s been such a good weekend, I’m sorry to see it end. Yesterday we headed down to San Juan Capistrano to visit Zoomars Petting Zoo. The girls and I have been there twice before and they love it, but this was Chris’s first visit. We fed goats, a cow, pigs, llamas, guinea pigs, and rabbits. We all held the guinea pigs for a very long time, too. I’ve been wanting one for a long time and yesterday just made me want one that much more! So cuddly and chill. *sigh*

Side note- I wanted to change the pic in the side bar because it’s 2 years old, but I can’t get into my ftp software so it’s proving to be a challenge. Not sure I’m up the task of figuring it out- I’m definitely not right now.

Today was filled with good food all around. Chris started us off with what I assume was yummy French toast made from a blueberry pound cake. He and the girls sure enjoyed it! Tabitha spent a good portion of the day working on Orange Chocolate Truffles from a Hershey’s recipe. She’s having a potluck in her Latin class tomorrow and she always likes to bring some decadent. These sure fit the bill! Lastly, I contributed dinner. I sautéd cauliflower bits in oil and garlic, heaped that on a grilled portobello mushroom, and topped the whole thing off with seitan in a lovely orange sauce.

Oh my.

I wasn’t particularly up for cooking this evening but it came out so good. Definitely need to add grilled mushrooms to another meal soon.

Other than cooking and eating, I spent the day sewing, reading, and crocheting plus did a little housework and got a run in. Probably the most productive Sunday I’ve ever had in my life.

And we get to finish it off with Game of Thrones!

    I never really liked guinea pigs until we got Felix. He is totally chill and just the best little guy. Others we’ve had were too skittish but not him. He has sold me on the species.
