Good evening dearest friends,

How was your weekend? You know, in my scale between “flowers and unicorns” – “meh” and “bags of shit”?

Mine was meh. I was supposed to go to the beach today but didn’t, since I wasn’t feeling so well. We stayed home and took a big nap. Then I read a few blogs, made dinner and we watched the Portuguese version of “kitchen nightmare”, which is really good. The guy can be so much worse than Gordon Ramsey. And you get such dirty restaurant kitchens. And the guy gets so pissed. It’s perfect.

Well, let me try to do a little weekend recap.

Friday evening, Mr. R got home early and, since I wasn’t feeling too well and he is perfect, he decided we would do date night. So we went for kebab and a movie and watched “Going in Style”, which was extremely funny!

On Saturday we woke up late and I got breakfast in bed. Since I was not feeling so well, I stayed in bed and Mr. R and Rosa kept me company, while I read blogs. Then we got up and went to the library, I really needed the second Harry Potter book!! We went to the supermarket to get a few things and fresh fish for dinner, that my love cooked for us.

Today was just a lazy day of reading blogs and taking huge nap. Then I cooked dinner, which brings me to my recipe!!

…. which has no name. lol It’s just something I threw together.

It’s vegetarian, although not vegan because of the cheese. I’m trying to cut meat and fish out of our meals a couple of days a week and this was one of them. It was really delicious. I didn’t notice the difference between this vegetable soy cream and real cream at all. I’m glad I discovered something new to add to our rotation. I’m will definitely be making it again!! It’s really simple, cheap and healthy.

Honey took a day-off tomorrow because we have some important errands to run, take the dog to the vet, and take care of some documents. I need to call my doctor, since I haven’t been feeling well. I have measured my blood pressure and it’s fine so it has to be something to do with my medication! If she says it’s not normal, I will probably go to the hospital and have a check.

That’s all for today, my friends.

I hope you all have an amazing week!!
