Let the Summer Draaaaag On!

I have had a couple of pretty awesome breakfasts lately ... like this gigantic Denver sandwich, which I could only finish half of.  The runny egg was so good in it though.


I also have been having breakfast platters with fruit and yogurt.  The other day I had blueberries, a plum, an apricot and vanilla yogurt with PB.  


I still believe that vanilla yogurt and PB are a match made in heaven.  
You must try it.  Source vanilla yogurt is the best (I think).

Dinner this evening was something I remember eating as a kid.  
Meatballs in mushroom sauce on rice.  I served it with roasted zucchini.


In other news ...

Yesterday I did my last presentation and handed in my last paper for my summer class.  I had to show up today to watch others do their presentations, and same for Monday, but I am done all the work and can now relax.  This book can go onto the shelf until at least the fall:


No work + no school + no babies yet = 

No responsibilities for the rest of the summer.

Some things on the agenda for the rest of July and August include:
  • Celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary
  • Going on a road weekend road trip for the hubby to compete in another 1/2 Ironman (we will also shop, visit friends)
  • A Folk Festival (weekend long music festival) in our city
  • My sister's wedding
  • 10 days of camping with the hubby and a bunch of our closest friends
I hope the days draaaaaaag on!
What fun things are still on your agenda for the summer?

Also....what it in your mushroom sauce? Is it just mushroom soup or is it a compilation of ingredients?
