Weekend Recap:: New Recipes & Wine Wobble

It has been a while since I've done a weekend recap so I figured now was as good of time as any to get back into them. So here we go:

After work, I made a trip to the grocery store. I have been wanting to test out some new recipes and decided to give zucchini lasagna a try for dinner. Being the picky eater than I am, I wasn't really expecting to like it that much, so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Even better, Michael loved it! You can find the recipe I used here. So good! I used ground beef rather than turkey since we currently have a freezer full of beef and pork. I also used a regular baking dish instead of mason jars.

We spent the rest of the evening just being lazy and lounging around the house.

Michael woke up at 5 a.m. to go turkey hunting, and naturally I couldn't fall back asleep once he left. I got up and knocked out some laundry before heading to his parent's for breakfast. After breakfast, Jessie came over and we went for a long walk followed by some front porch sitting and chit chatting.

Later, MaKenzie and I spent the afternoon at Cedar Lake Cellars for the Wine Wobble 5K.  Since we arrived early, we decided to start our day off with some chicken nachos and wine slushies. We were well aware that this was not the best idea before running 3.1 miles, but man it was good! We struggled through 5K miles together and finished in under 30 minutes. We were both proud of this time since we started off with full bellies and the terrain was questionable (literally ran through a field).

Afterwards, we enjoyed some free wine and another wine slushie before heading back to her house. Her fiance had some people over (including Michael) so we hung out, sipped some more wine, and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

Perfect day.

Michael and I started our day by grabbing breakfast at one of the local restaurants. He played golf in the afternoon and I spent the day around the house. We got a new computer on Saturday so I spent some time getting it all setup. We've needed one for a long time. My old one wouldn't even turn on and his wouldn't connect to the internet so it was quite the upgrade.

Later I made time for a run and quick workout and then did some meal prep for the week. I made a crock-pot chicken enchilada meal that turned out pretty well. I didn't follow a recipe but it included chicken, black beans, corn, enchilada sauce, taco seasoning, and rice. I also prepped some protein waffles and fruit for the week.

We spent the evening binge-watching Shameless on Netflix. It's a show that we have been hooked on for a while now and we finally made it to season three last night. We didn't realize there were seven seasons! It's going to require some dedication to get through all seven, but I think we can do it.

We often disagree on what TV shows to watch so this has been a good one that we both enjoy. It was a nice way to unwind and relax before another work week.
