I probably should be in a bed but I had to write about the awesome cookout we just go home from. My friend's mother retired from her Assistant Principal job after 30 years in education. Friday night she had a huge retirement party that I missed because I was out running
; see how dedicated I am? Anyway, today she had part two of the celebration which was a cookout. My friend Angela, her daughter, did an amazing job with the food. Her husband fried fish and grilled hot dogs. There was some coleslaw, amazing baked beans, some yummy spaghetti and this green bean salad Angela made that was to die for!
She blanched fresh greens beans and then sauteed them in garlic and olive oil before tossing in some grilled steak and chopped grape tomatoes in a vinegarette dressing she made. Oh. EM. GEE! Amazing! I swear I had about 3 plates of just the green beans alone. And the fruit ! The fruit salad so was so sweet and ripe. Yum! I had a ton of that two. Add on two small pieces of fried fish and a hot dog, I'm done for the evening.
Hubs and I had a blast and now I am ready to pass out and can hopefully get up for a workout in the morning.
