The Rest of my Monday

My morning was wonderful, and the rest of my day was just as good.  I spent some time reading in the backyard:

Sipping on this iced tea that I made:

I whipped up some bread dough, and worked my muscles kneading it for a long 10 minutes.

Focaccia bread ready for the oven:

And done!

Once Christopher was home from work we spent time visiting in the yard before getting started on dinner.  We made a baked scallop dish with white wine, garlic, panko crumbs and lemon juice.

We cut into the fresh-baked focaccia to enjoy with the scallops, and to soak up some of the sauce.

A simple green salad on the side completed the meal:

For dessert we cut into the easy frozen cheesecake that I made this morning.

A little trash TV to end the evening off, and I have to say that today was a pretty nice start to the week.  We are looking forward to trying new recipes, having a picnic, having guests over, and attending two nieces' birthday parties this week!

How was your Monday?  What are you looking forward to this week?

Monday seems like so long ago! It is my busiest day at work so Mondays usually fly by for me. It was a short week for me as I left for the lake on Wednesday! That bread looks amazing!!
