We’re back, we’re tan and we’re worn out! We headed to the beach early Saturday morning and immediately put on our bathing suits. I love that my boyfriend loves to lay out as much as I do… It’s nice to have company while laying still for hours on end.
burning bronzing our bodies we got ready to head out for a nice dinner with Adam’s parents.
We ordered our main meals and I chose the lobster roll.
Someone just had to order the 2 pound lobster.
After shutting down the place we headed to one of our favorite ice cream spots, Ralph’s Italian Ice’s. They had a flavor on special I couldn’t say no to.
We all passed out as soon as we got back to the boat. When we woke up the next morning we went on a walk to eat breakfast. On the way we saw some of the prettiest houses!
When we got back we went on a boat ride.
When we got home Adam prepared dinner..
He also cleaned the dishes, put them away AND let me watch Julie & Julia. Must’ve been my lucky night.
I really love the movie Julie & Julia… If you’ve never seen it and you’re a blogger its a must see. It’s about a girl who aspires to cook all 524 recipes in Julia Child’s cookbook in 365 days and starts a blog that eventually leads her to her dream job. All of the recipes are fancy, full of butter and time consuming.. I don’t think I’d ever be able to make 524 things in one year!?
I started thinking about what inspired me to start cooking and besides growing up and baking with my grandma every year at Christmas time I would have to say that Rachel Ray was my inspiration.
In 12th grade I got mono and was sick for 3 months which meant I had to be home-schooled. Since I had so much free time I started going to the grocery store for my mom and preparing our nightly dinners. I watched the cooking channel (all day, everyday) and took interest specifically in 30 minute meals. They were easy, fresh and delicious and they fed our entire family quickly!
Is it ironic that I’m currently watching the Rachel Ray Show? I still love her (almost 10 years (WHAT!?) later)!
