I didn't stop cooking....I just took a break

Our youngest gave up meat for Lent...so I didn't do a ton of cooking this weekend. She likes soup so she had vegetable, and mac n cheese kids meals and then Sunday I did cook a late lunch.  Fish sticks...if you have not tried the fish sticks from the Schwann's man you don't know what you are missing! Seriously..best fish sticks ever! She didn't eat those, she had Boca "chicken" and green peas and mashed potatoes and biscuits and more mac and cheese.  Hubby and I ate out twice which is rare for us.  We had Christina's mexican on Friday night on the way back from the airport.  YUMMMMMMMMOOOOOOO I'm sorry for all of you who do not live around here, you seriously have no idea what you are missing.  Then Saturday night we joined friends at the new German restaurant in Roanoke.  It is clean, sleek and modern looking and decorated with soccer. Food....once again YUUMMMMMOOOO!!  It was loud and fun with a live band and polka music and singing and all kinds of craziness.  Just the things the big chain restaurants try to give you but don't quite get there.  We are all about the locally owned restaurants.  If you are ever this way and want tons of choices of great local food...head over to downtown Roanoke. You won't be disappointed. 

Last night we just had tomato basil soup with butternut squash ravioli and some garlic bread made from bread slices. Nothing fancy yet quite good.  I think we need to grill tonight....it is sooooooooooo beautiful outside!! 

Say something nice to someone who doesn't deserve it today. peace, love and yummies!
