The Whirly Girl

Archive for July 2010

Last week we (Scott and I and John, one of our best friends) returned from a wonderful, wonderful road-trip vacation.  People should hire us as vacation consultants, it was that good.  It was planned around a wedding in Chicago and some friends in Ontario, Canada, with a lot of good stops in between.

These two fall into the small category of people I can spend two weeks with in a car:

If we got vacation reports cards, we would get an E for ‘playing well with others.’  Pictures of our adventures are here:

Welcome to a week of meals with the sole purpose of cleaning out the fridge before we left on vacation.  I didn’t grocery shop, though we did get our weekly CSA share and were overwhelmed with zucchini from our own garden.

Sunday

out (notice a Sunday supper pattern, or lack thereof?  we both ate for $6.77 though, which is an accomplishment)

Monday

pizza w/ mozzarella and zucchini

Tuesday

life group meal @ a friend’s house

Wednesday

grilled chicken, grilled zucchini and squash, brown rice

After Wednesday our cooking petered out and we turned to our favorite restaurants.  Since we’re about to drop some cash on a vacation, why not warm up our wallets now?
