Weekend Fun!

My weekend was too short, very much like all my weekends are (and my weekend starts on Friday-don't hate me). I started a new job as a takeout girl at a local seafood/ice cream place on the beach- I've aced it so far! What I didn't know when I started is that I'm going to be surrounded by very easily accessible ice cream, hot fudge, and desserts. This is going to be bad for my thighs! Must. think. cruise. Must. think. cruise. I'm going on a cruise to Bermuda over my birthday in July, and I have a gorgeous red dress picked out that I want to look amazing in. But...if I keep eating like I did this weekend...I'm gonna be in TROUBLE.
Saturday night Handsome and I procrastinated about at 7 we were both saying "Ehhh, I'm hungry but I don't want to make a big dinner". I pulled my wits together and by 8 we were sitting down to homemade meatballs in some doctored-up tomato sauce with farfalle, and homemade strawberry-raspberry ice cream with a hint of key lime juice. Domestic Goddess...I think so.

 Sorry for the quality of this one^ My camera was dying and I was hungry. The sauce has spinach, carrot, and green peppers with homemade meatballs that I had in the freezer thrown in.

Can I say YUM?!
 I used a pint of strawberries, a pint of frozen raspberries, 3/4 c. sugar, the juice of a lemon,
a couple squeezes of Key Lime juice from the bottle, a couple shakes of salt, 2 eggs, 1 c. heavy cream, and 2 c. milk. We ate the entire quart in 2 days. Amazingly refreshing, light, and addictive.

Sunday night Handsome grilled us some AMAZING ginger lime marinated steak tips from
 Joe's Meat Shoppe , and we had more ice cream for dessert. Goodness, that ice cream was ridiculous. 

My thighs are hating me but my stomach is happy. 


  1. your food pix look amazing! No ice cream left? Whyyyyyyyyy? Strawberry with a hint of jealous!

  2. Wow, you're pretty much a gourmet cook. It all looks delicious Kate. It sounds like you ate good all weekend. Congrats on the new job.

    Have a wonderful day...Tracy :)

  3. I've always been so jealous of your cooking abilities Kate. ALWAYS. There are so many things I want to be able to do but no time to do them! You should keep up blogging <3


I love comments. Seriously. They're my favorite.
