B was away for work all week, and boy did I miss him! Well, to be honest the first two days I didn't really miss him, as I was busy working late, going to the gym in the morning and cleaning my house (which miraculously stayed clean all week long....hmmm....). By Wednesday, though, I was certainly lonely and missing B!
I'm at work today and he is driving home. He plans to stop here and take me to lunch! As a welcome home treat, I'm making this recipe for dinner tonight. I think it sounds delicious! I also bought frozen chocolate covered bananas for dessert.
I got a lot done yesterday including grocery shopping. When I returned home, I made Cucumber Yogurt Soup. My friend's family owns a wonderful Lebanese restaurant in my town, and I recently had lunch there. They offered this soup and I fell in love. I think this recipe is a pretty accurate replica, only I added more herbs, salt, and garlic to mine. I also only grated one cucumber and chopped the other. I think when I make this again, I'll add a bit of lemon juice and some onion. Its so refreshing and very low in fat. I used low fat yogurt, which really tastes the same to me. There is a variation of this recipe in Ina Garten's newest cookbook, Back to Basics that I will try also. If you haven't get checked out that book, I highly recommend it! Almost every recipe looks good.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend! It has finally cooled down a bit here, and I have to admit its a nice break. I'm not really ready for the snow that will be here in a few months, but 90 and cloudy was getting old quickly.
