Foodie Friday

Happy Friday! How is it Friday and HOW is it August in two days?! Sigh.

Yesterday we continued our stay-cation and went to a zoo, it is a smaller “wildlife” zoo but only about 45 minutes from us. I like that there is a ton of open space so it never feels too congested.

Avery loved the monkeys and was pretending to be one when she saw them:


The jaguar show is always awesome!




Trying to get a decent photo with my little:



Watching the racoons, she likes climbing the fence more I think:


Chad trying to intimidate the llama.


Avery and my Mom watching:


I had book club last night at my favourite local pizza place, no pizza for me but their drink menu is just as good! Last month’s book was A Sudden Light. In the end I really liked this book, though it felt long at times. In August I am hoping to talk more about my book club reviews so far. My pick was up next, I brought two books for the group to choose from and they picked The Vactioners.


Moving on to meal planning!

foodie friday

Saturday – Eating out

Sunday – Oprah’s Favourite Grilled Cheese & kale salad – oh sweet basil

Monday – Easy Flounder Brocccolini Bake  with couscous (I will use Sole instead) – Skinny Taste cookbook

Tuesday – Chicken Fajita Quesadillas with guacmole – jo cooks

Wednesday –  Greek turkey burgers & salad —> need to use garden veggies!

Thursday – Healthy Tuna Casserole – Reveal Natural Health

Friday – Pizza night since we skipped it last week!

Today we are headed to the beach since it is going to be a perfect day for it. Tomorrow the plan is to take a little tour to smaller towns and check out some different shops and cafes. We still have a few looming to do list items as well which will keep us busy. The one I am dreading? Staining our porch!

Enjoy your long weekends Smile

    I think we might check out that zoo this weekend! I've never been, but have always wanted to. What do you mean you didn't have pizza at book club?! Why on earth not? haha!

    No pizza?!

    Do you buy all of your books or get them at the library? Wondering if I could borrow A Sudden Light. I'm curious to read it after reading The Art Of Racing In The Rain.

    Hope you're having a fun beach day!
