Last weekend Ryan and I took Ginger, our dog, to the beach to see how she would like the sand and ocean. We saw some people with their dogs the week before and assumed it would be OK if we did too. Since the summer is very busy at the beach, I think they do not really allow dogs there too much, but in the winter we've seen other dogs there and thought we should take her too. She was more concerned with walking along the way than actually seeing the ocean. But we had a nice walk along the beach as a family.
Here are some random pics from throughout the week or so, that I have been collecting since Marie went home.
I usually make cheese quesadillas on the griddle, but Ryan was making some warmed up soft chicken tacos, so I got creative too and made the same thing, but in place of chicken, I added imitation crab with some old bay seasoning. These were delicious and I will be making these again.
This was my good use of the left overs from last weeks from scratch black bean burgers. I had them for lunch, served open faced.
I went to the Modelo in Angra this week, which is 3-4 times the size of the one here in Praia. I decided to give in and try some of the yogurts I have been continuously eyeing every time we stop there. This is a fat free, no added sugar apple and kiwi yogurt. It is so good. I definitely need to get more.
My biggest treat this week as my brand new MacBook coming in the mail. It was so hard to order one to be shipped to an APO address, but we managed to get it delivered here. I am actually using my new computer right now. I love how it checks the spelling anytime I am typing, including school posts and blog posts. I love this computer, but yes, there is some getting used to.
I would like to thank my sister for this yummy treat I enjoyed after a workout this past week.
