Yesterday was a day of soccer (two games, plus one reffing game). One of the games was a 75 minute drive each way, which made for quite the haul. I also managed to get some returns done, and they've been lingering in my closet for awhile, so it felt good to get them out of my way.
I made a delicious chicken yakisoba recipe for dinner, using up a bunch of veggies we had on hand, as well as a package of ramen noodles I'd picked up on clearance for $.25.
There was also the standard tennis driving (they are paving the courts near our house, so Nick needed more rides than usual.
As for today, I met a friend for a hike in the morning. My friend is quite athletic, so our workouts are always a good challenge. Today was no exception!
I came home, and made a double batch of these zucchini muffins. It's my goal to get all of last season's zucchini out of the freezer, before we have more to contend with. The plants are starting to blossom, so I best get on it! I added dried fruit & nuts (happened to have both) & thought they were incredible. I put the nuts through my mini food processor/chopper, to give them a finer consistency/texture. Highly recommend these muffins!
I washed the sheets, made the bed, did a few loads of laundry, & returned a few of the items that didn't fit Nick. I'd say I've had an 80% success rate for the majority of what I bought (all online), which is a good ratio, all things considered. It's hard to size rapidly growing teens. He definitely is preferring more of a "teen" look, vs his previous athletic shorts & whatever random shirt he could find. It's a fun transition to watch. Sam is still firmly in the athletic short/random shirt phase & despite me asking if I could add a few things for him to the order, he was firm in his no. ;-) Nick's reffing shorts are about to enter booty short territory, so I need to see if I can find a second hand pair of those, and hand off the too small version to someone else.
As for the rest of the day, I'm hoping to read a bit by the pool, & the make egg roll in a bowl for dinner. It was originally on the menu for last night, but I forgot to pick up hoisin sauce. I picked some up today, so we are good to go for tonight's dinner.
Still on the list for today:
- Pack for tomorrow (I'm going to a yoga class in the am, and then heading to the office, so I'll need a change of clothes)
- Have the boys call my parents
- Prep the veggies & make egg roll in a bowl
- Water the planter boxes
- Pick lettuce & make a salad
- Take Nick to his tennis tournament
- Supervise reluctant teens, who are prepping for finals
