We have a thing for dinner dates. Are you sick of them yet?
You see, when you work all day cooped up in an office with your butt stuck to a computer chair, dinner becomes sort of a big deal. (Three cheers for only 1.5 weeks of internship left!!!). It’s like celebrating your freedom each and every night. We take this meal seriously.
My friend Rachel and I decided to get our boys together for a double dinner date! We had been planning forever, but we finally stuck to a date and got it together This meant we were 100% in charge of dinner.
On the Menu:
Rachel – Broiled Lemon and Basil Salmon & Veggie Salad
This quinoa salad turned out perfectly! I practically snatched the bowl off the table immediately after dinner to ensure no one else got the leftovers. Best decision I ever made
We’re not done here.
Boyfriend ate three of these and then complained that I had been withholding cupcakes from him.
There is nothing better than socializing over good food. Nothing.
and if you’re us, no night is complete without a movie or a French press. Obviously.
If you don’t know, in June my boss had me working Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This month however we’ve been changing things up and I’ve been working random days. But for whatever reason I haven’t had a Wednesday off almost all summer! Well, not today friends. Free Wednesday! This meant only one thing: A trip to Clemson’s Organic Market!!!
I’m lucky to attend a big agricultural University. Clemson has a great Student Organic Farm on Campus that I have been stalking, and wanting to check out FOREVER, but it’s only open on Wednesdays for a 3 hour window. So, when I realized I had Wednesday off, I demanded we check it out.
I was so excited to see how cute it was! We got there at the end of the 3 hours, but lucky for us they had a good bit of stuff left. Boyfriend also told me that he heard this land all used to be a riverbed, apparently meaning that it’s some of the best farming soil in the state..? That may or may not be true, but I thought it was cool.
We had pizza on the brain for dinner. Meaning most of our market purchases were destined to be pizza toppings. He got a bell pepper, banana pepper and tomato, and I picked up these pretty pennies..
One grocery store stop for dough and cheese, and 30 minutes later, dinner was born. Pizza is the easiest dinner ever, and it’s fun to make! Win/win.
Oh Mamma… FYI – Cold pizza = favorite lunch leftover.
That’s all friends Hope every one has a great day!
