It's so close I can almost taste it

My Business Man and I had quite the relaxing weekend. Running, good eats, and QT with my best friend... what more could a girl ask for?

Saturday night we got a lil' crazy and lit a fire in our fire pit. We didn't have any hot dogs, but threw together a fabulous snacky dinner. (Love snacky dinners. What is it that makes appetizers so much fun?) We had some fabulous Spinach, Kale, & Greek yogurt dip from Trader Joe's, pita chips, cheddar cheese, nuts, and grapes. 

[Side note: The grapes looked so good at the grocery store this weekend. Without thinking, I picked up a bag, threw it in the cart. Turns out, I must have picked the biggest bag because it was $8.13 worth of grapes! But so totally worth it. Heh.]

We bought the stuff for s'mores, too, but the fire died out before we remembered to roast the marshmallows. Duh. So I ended up with a microwave s'mores. (With Reese's instead of Hershey's chocolate. Best idea ever.)

We also played a couple hands of rummy, and I have to say I kicked my Business Man's patootie. This might become a weekly summer ritual, rummy and s'mores.

Anyone care to join? Don't worry, I'll go easy on ya. The first round anyways. ;-)

We wrapped up the weekend with a trip to my favorite - Pete's. No pic, but I got the usual cookie-dough Oreo avalanche and it was fantastic.

I'm pretty giddy this week because we have just *4* days of school left. I don't know where this school year went, but I'm happy that summer is just around the corner! It'll be crazy busy, but loads of fun.

Before I go, make sure you check out my lastest recipe at the Rays Market blog... Dr. Pepper Beef Brisket! Mmmm.... some of the best beef I have ever had, if I do say so myself. :)
