Weekend Roundup!

We had a great weekend, and Wizard had a really nice Father’s Day.  Our oldest son took us out to dinner on Saturday night, middle son came out and we BBQed on Sunday and poor youngest son had to work, but he called Wizard and they chatted about boring guy stuff so everyone was happy. But the most important thing, of course, is what did I decide on for dessert? I won’t keep you in suspense:


I made chocolate dipped strawberries, and they were delicious! Let’s just say that Sunday was a day off from Weight Watchers :-)  And the strawberries were a hit! Evil Wizard took a pic and sent it to youngest son just to torment him. I laughed because…well…I’m evil too.

How about you all? How was your weekend?

    We had a wonderful Father’s Day Weekend. You know it it a weekend now, or so says my husband :wink: . The two younger sons went to PF Changs with us for dinner Sat. The eldest and youngest took hubs golfing Sunday morning and then youngest grilled t-bones and asparagus for dinner. I made the potatoes and lemon pie :) . All in all very nice time.
    Your strawberries look yummy.

    Carla, I bet your dad loves just talking to you–and the g/f is nice!

    The strawberries were good, and they are easy to do :-)

    Zoe, you had a full weekend! I had to think about it, but I can remember being on a train myself. I took a subway in NY once, but not a train. Great experience for you!

    it was very relaxing – we went out for F-Day on Sat to avoid the rush and had a BBQ over my sister’s yesterday. it was a great day with no bugs and plenty of shade :)
    PS: those strawberrys look good and I’m not a fan of chocolate at all ;)

    We had a quiet weekend. Father’s Day with the kids was Thursday night and last night we met Lawyer Guy’s bro and SiL for dinner to celebrate her belated birthday. Good food. Good company. But I didn’t get a nap. :(

    It’s Monday again, isn’t it? *flail*

    It was a pretty decent weekend. Came home from work Sat. morn and finished reading Johanna Lindsey’s WHEN PASSION RULES. I really didn’t plan on finishing it before bed, but I had to. And then I only slept for about 4 hrs. Sat night I cleaned some strawberries and made shortcake. Yum, yum. Sunday I took the parents out to dinner for Father’s Day. Then we had strawberry shortcake for dessert. I really wanted more after I finished my piece, but I was good and resisted. Then I started reading G A Aiken’s DRAGON ACTUALLY. Now I’m going to have to get the rest of that series. *sigh* Just what I needed…another series to read…

    Ban – what is wrong with you?!?!?! Not like chocolate?! That’s just wrong! Wrong, I say!!

    OMG!! I love chocolate covered strawberries!! I spent some time with my dad and grandfather, got them each a new shirt that they liked plus a Lowes gift card! they both love to work in the yard. Then spent the rest at the hospital holding my God-daughter Lillian!! she came early but is too cute already. It was a great Father’s day gift to my friend’s husband!!

    Ban, I love missing the crowds too. Glad you had a relaxing weekend! I’d forgotten that you don’t care for chocolate :-)

    Silver, even without a nap, it sounds like a really good weekend!

    I’ve ran after Monday all day today, but I can’t seem to catch it and make it behave.

    Dawn, you were very good to only have one piece of strawberry shortcake! That does sound like a very good weekend!

    I’m going to read G A Aiken very soon.

    Your strawberries look awesome. And hey, how bad can chocolate-coated fruit really be?

    We didn’t do anything for Father’s Day but chill. We all needed recuperation after our college thing last week.
