Since I’ve Been Home
Since I’ve been home, I’ve been a little slow at adjusting to being back.
The day I got back, I spent the majority of it laying around, not doing much of anything.
If it wasn’t for a previously planned lunch date, I probably would have had a repeat of day one.
So what were my plans?
Lunch at Savor Cafe with some food bloggers.
I had never been there before so I was excited to try a new place.
I liked the decor though.
We all sort of went the same route with getting a light lunch.
Jamie got a sandwich with tomatoes, cheese and balsamic reduction that looked amazing.
The greek salad with balsamic was quite tasty and due to my lack of nutrients last week, this was just what I needed.
Did I mention it was Mary’s birthday yesterday?
Cucumber from Jamie’s garden wrapped in a bow, best present ever?!

Ladies who lunch.
Before Kentucky, I vowed to myself to make a more conscious effort to get back into shape.
So I picked one of the hottest days to walk some of the greenway trail.
Brilliant Vanessa. Brilliant.
It was just me, my Ipod, and my camera.
I decided to take a few nature pictures of the greenway.
Then I realized that all of the different tree stumps and old wooden limbs kept on catching my eye.
So then I took a few pictures of some of the interesting ones.
I’m a total dork.
Who takes pictures of tree stumps?!
I’ve lost it. Clearly…
Since I got home, I’ve restocked my fridge somewhat.
I picked up a couple pounds of these sweet cherries.
They are one of my favorite summer snacks.
I seriously pop these like candy.
Although I’m thinking of making Tartlette’s clafoutis or cherry pistachio cake with some of them.
I also have been making some garden progress.
I was able to pick four small tomatoes.
I almost have a ripe German Johnson tomato!!
^ Insert squeal here.
The pickles I made before my trip turned out surprisingly delicious!
I need to start pickling more things.
I may be addicted.
I finally made myself a balanced, home cooked meal.
For the first time in over a week.
Broiled flounder with lemon butter, roasted tomatoes and broccoli and leftover pesto pasta.
Now it’s time to do the dishes.
I can say that I did not miss doing that at all.
I’m also trying to make some weekend plans! Shooting for a good hike or something!
