Thunderstorms can be kind of relaxing...but not at 4:30 in the morning! The thunderstorm threw my sleeping off a little. I had the day off so it wasn't too big of an issue. When I did wake up though I was excited to try a recipe I'd been wanting to try for a while now...blueberry buckle. I got this recipe again from
Home Beccanomics! It was absolutely delicious. The texture was perfect and the blueberries were so good. And we ate it warm, making it even better!
This was the bottom layer of dough and blueberries!
The final product! My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Later, once my blueberry belly was disgusted, I went on a bike ride then went for a swim. My swim workout today was:
4 x 50
3 x 100
3 x 150
2 x 50
After my workouts my mom and I enjoyed some time laying out by the pool. Then we went home to get ready to go out to dinner with two of my best friends, Nicole and Carly, to one of my favorite restaurants...Red lobster!!! They had their summer 4 course for $14.99 going on, so we just had to go! And for the cheesy biscuits of course!
The first course...New England Clam Chowder. One of my favorite soups.
The second course was a nice garden salad. I asked for the dressing on the side and thank goodness because they actually put the dressing on the salad. The third course was our entree. I got the garlic Alfredo shrimp and scallop pasta with tomatoes. It was so good! Needless to say I had to take most of it home though. Lunch tomorrow!
Then we finished with dessert. A melt in your mouth, warm brownie served with vanilla ice cream!
After dinner we were stuffed, to put it lightly! We spent the rest of the night hanging out and watching the gymnastics Olympic trials and Friends (one of our favorites!).
Happy Friday everyone!!
