Dinner and Movies...and Dessert!
Oh Monday...we meet again. Why so soon? I think it makes it worse since it was such a good weekend.

We started it off with our Friday night hors d'oeuvres dinner and watched some Modern Family on Hulu and then Ocean's 11 for our feature that evening!

The boys had assorted meats and cheeses along with some veggies and hummus.

I loaded up a bowl with a little lettuce, fresh cut carrots, celery, steamed broccoli, a baked potato covered in nutritional yeast and a mountain of hummus to finish it all off!

I didn't get to eat most of the day, so in my defense, I needed this monster bowl. It was so good!

Saturday was a cleaning day. We all spent time cleaning things up. It feels better when we all work together on the house. The windows were open and the fresh air, combined with the clean house made the day perfect. We ran a few errands that night and ended up at Moe's for dinner. That part was kind of a let down though. Moe's is really starting to lose it's luster with us. The food is just not that good anymore. We ended up watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with the boys Saturday night. Tony and I are really enjoying watching movies with the boys these days. I cry every time I watch this one. I absolutely love it! I would have cried anyway if I had to watch Alien VS. Predator again...UGH! I get out voted all the time. Luckily, they had pity on me this time! Sometimes being the only girl is awesome!

Sunday was a laundry day. Sounds fun, right? Yeah, well, that mountain keeps growing! I am sad to say, it is not all done, but I did put a pretty large dent in it. We also did our big Sunday meal, but I will save that one for tomorrow...I accidentally made gluten free, dairy free biscuits! It was a happy accident that's for sure! I will save that one for tomorrow though.  

I will leave you with the treat of the weekend...

Peanut Butter Pizzert topped with dairy free vanilla ice cream, chocolate chips and drizzled with warm peanut butter!

Did you watch movies with your parents? My favorites were The Big Chill and Highlander. I'm sure there were more, but I can't remember them. My dad and I watched Highlander a lot together. I miss those days...

    pizzert just might get me to fold laundry. I hate it too! Actually, my hubs loves folding and ironing so we trade. I think I am spoiled there.
    Is that socca pizzert?

    So you had a Brad Pitt weekend, huh? Sounds like good times... ;)

    We rarely had movie nights together. Even now over the holidays if we decide to go for a movie, there's rarely one movie we can all decide on.

    I could not get into Benjamin Button. I tried!

    Sounds like a great weekend! I love family movie time--it's the best! My family did it every weekend when I was young, and we also did movie days on holidays like christmas and new years. So we'd celebrate the holiday in the morning and then in the afternoon/evening we would watch movies and eat lots of appetizer type foods. I loved it also because it was almost the only time my parents would let me drink soda!

    Too funny, started my post off today similarly about Mondays. Love having hors d'oeuvres for dinners - Jason's family lived in Hawaii for a while so he calls them PuPu platters. I call them snacky plates ;-)

    That movie ended up being so much better than I expected.

    How....did.....I.....miss.....that....pizzert...first time around!!! I must be making this...tomorrow (or today!!) YUM!!!

    And I hear you. I have 2 baskets of laundry currently blocking all sunlight from the back door (this should tell you that these are no ordinary baskets full of washing, these are like twin Mt Everests) and there's another 2 loads on the line, one in the washing machine and 2 waiting to be washed. ARGH! (I am very tempted to hire a professional clothes launderer!!)

    A pizzert is a new one to me. I like Brad Pitt, but I have to admit, I struggled to get into Benjamin Buttons.
