Z Gets Cookin’

z and I had a good weekend. We went to Jazz on Friday and enjoyed some nice weather, beer, snacks, and good friends! After Jazz we took the metro to Rockville to see KB for her birthday. It was nice to see my friends! The metro and bus ride home took…forever. We didn’t get home until after 1:30. Yawn! We had a leisurely Saturday morning. z stepped out to get groceries and came home to make bacon and pancakes! He cooked and took pictures by himself! I was so proud.

To continue the theme, he marinated a pork loin all day in a Caribbean jerk marinade and then put it on the grill!

We made a salad and also roasted potatoes and onions on the grill in a foil packet. I made a half batch of honey corn bread muffins earlier in the day using new local honey I got at the farmer’s market!

Homemade dinners are the best…made even better by sitting outside to enjoy them!! We ended the night by watching No Strings Attached which was pretty funny and definitely cute.

On Sunday we watched the French Open, played tennis, went to the pool and then had dinner at Bangkok 54. Somehow it still feels like we’re on vacation…

Have a great week, all!
