A Very Full Day

I hope everyone is having a great day. We were up early this morning.

A bit of breakfast.

And then off to the ballfield for Opening Ceremonies. Zack's team this year is the Red Sox. He's number 8.

Back home for lunch. Another quick, easy, healthy meal. Lentil Spinach Pasta, salad and garlic bread.

Saute 1 chopped onion and 3 cloves of garlic in a bit of olive oil. Add one can of chopped tomatoes and one can of Progresso Lentil Soup and bring to a boil. Separately cook a 10 oz bag of spinach and whole wheat pasta (drain both when done). Mix the spinach in to the tomato and lentil sauce and warm through. Add a pinch of red pepper flakes plus salt and pepper to taste. Stir in pasta. Serve sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

Zack's team had their first game of the season at 3:00 pm and unfortunately lost 5-2. My husband drove to the afternoon game, so while in the car, I managed to start a trellis scarf. Such an easy pattern since it only requires chains.

We met friends this evening at the Movenpick for coffee. It's not far from us so we were able to walk there.

I wish I had taken a picture of the apple streudel I had while there. It was delicious, served with a light cream sauce and vanilla ice cream with strawberry drizzle. Yummo! That was my dinner and a sweet way to end a busy day!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Your food looks wonderful. I love that lentil and pasta dish that you do!! YUMMY!! It looks like you spent a bunch of time at the baseball field today. Wish the team had won but good that you got a chance to get a scarf done!! HA! I am having trouble picturing where the Movenpick hotel is, especially knowing that you can walk to it.
Dinner sounds wonderful!! I am guessing it put you to sleep with a smile on your face!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Love,
Renee
