Our weekend and eating veggies

Our Saturday girls lunch ended up being family lunch. LOL! We ran late going to pick up our CSA share this week and it just didn't make sense to split up and do more driving. Corey and Alex stayed and we wandered The Factory while waiting for everyone else. What was cool is that there was a gathering or reunion of sorts of people that had adopted Retired Greyhounds so we got to see (and pet) a bunch of Greyhound dogs. They were so sweet and so well behaved! It was also adoption day for the shelter at The Factory and so we got to spend some time visiting cats, kittens, dogs and puppies. I saw a couple I liked but since our fence isn't complete yet we aren't quite ready to bring one home. Our CSA share was full of fabulous yummies... collard greens, red leaf lettuce, red & yellow tomatoes, beets, summer squash, patty pan squash, zucchini, cucumbers, yukon gold potatoes, okra and a purple pepper (looks exactly like a bell pepper). We split it up with mom, Tish & Michael, my aunt & cousin and us. Seriously, there was plenty to share. For dinner Corey and I sauteed some summer squash and smashed some of the potatoes...delish!! A fresher potato neither of us have had. LOL! We've been incorporating more meatless dishes into our menus and feeling really good about it. I'm currently reading a book that I'm really getting into. I feel like it is speaking to me in a way. It is Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver. It is about her family's adventure to eat only food that they grew or knew who grew it (or raised it). Corey has been working a lot...change windows & monitoring shifts so Saturday afternoon was pretty much his weekend. Thank goodness I'm having surgery the day before a holiday to give him 2 days off together. ;-) Isn't that nice of me? My mom had Saturday & Sunday off also...a rare complete weekend off for her and she's getting 2 days off for the holiday too because of my surgery. Because you just KNOW that taking care of Morgan & Alex for the day can't be work, right?? ;-) My favorite part is that she thinks she's going to sleep late on Tuesday. Oh my...my sides hurt from laughing about that one.
