Piglet, Pita, Pants & Vegan Ice Cream
On Friday Pants took me to the Tigers game at Comerica. I was in an impressively bad mood, but hanging out in the sun and a giant slice of pizza helped cheer me up. The post-game fireworks were my favorite part. Initially I wondered why they weren’t shooting very high into the air only to remember climbing four flights up to the nosebleeds. Completely worth it :)
This weekend seemed to revolve around food. (Though when do my weekends not?) I made pita bread (from this recipe) on Saturday and then headed over to my parent’s house to swim. Unfortunately the air turned chilly and a huge storm blew in just after I arrived, so my mom and I found episodes of Hoarders On-Demand and made veggie chili for dinner.
Slayer spent the night at my parents on because we were planning to go to Cedar Point on Sunday, but in two days the weather forecast changed from sunny skies to thunderstorms. So we stayed home instead and watched Karate Kid 2 while eating crunchy and sweet oatmeal with granola. We’re both on a kick to save money by cleaning out the pantry instead of grocery shopping, so we used the basil growing on my deck and almonds to make pesto.
After picking the piglet up from my parents (they sure wore him out!) I sat on my deck and worked on a couple templates. I don’t know why I spend so much time parked on the couch when I could be outside enjoying the summer sun and cool breeze.
At night we met up for a bike ride, cruising through the darkened neighborhoods, Pants leaving my slow ass in the dust. We made our now weekly trip to the ice cream shop where I figured out how to make Pants smile for pictures…lavender honey and salted caramel ice cream in a waffle cone. I had vegan dark chocolate peanut butter, which I am oh so thankful for because I’m starting to think I might be lactose intolerant :( They have enough vegan flavors to keep me satisfied though, so I might just survive.08.23.11 in i love detroit, slayer, weekend
