BACK HOME, HOT DAY

Chicken and alfredo pasta
Got a lot done at the farm but, to use the lingo of the younger generation, OMG was it hot!  I think the "feels like" was 109 degrees.  And it's only going to get hotter over the next few days.

I will have updates tomorrow (or Monday) but I just thought I'd check in.  I came home to a wonderful dinner of roasted chicken with a side of buccatini alfredo (a pasta with a hole down the center).  We also had a bottle of Alberino from Spain (a white wine).  I think I had a glass or three...




And now it's NASCAR night racing, a great way to end the day!  Not sure if I'll go to the farm tomorrow. it's just SO oppressively hot and I did get most everything done I had planned, except mowing.  It didn't really need it, so I might go, I might not.  We'll see how I feel when I get up...whatever time that might be, ha!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

I must say, you come home to the Best, delicious looking meals.
2nd man knows when you are at the farm working that you work up an appetite. It's even making me hungry at the moment.
HOT it was for sure today. How hot was it you ask; 'it was soooooooooo hot we could had used our mailbox as a toaster oven.' :}
Have a great evening and enjoy the races.

UM, YES!!!!! NASCAR fan here too, and of course i like to eat too. So you had fabulousness on both aspects.

Don't overdo this weekend, enjoy your time off and stay inside where it's cool.

I hope you carry water when you and hydrate yourself with often sips. It is so hot here, but the low humidity has made it bearable. Dominique cooled down with a watermelon today.

That chicken and pasta looks sooo good. 2nd Man sure knows to have a scrumptious meal!

Texas Rose said...

Correction: 2nd Man sure knows HOW to make a scrumptious meal. (I think the heat is frying my brain a little - or a lot!).

Dinner looks good, but now I'll throw in a word from your mother ... Where's the veggies on that plate?! No dessert if you don't eat your vegetables! (That was my mother ...)

1st Man,

I raise my glass to you and 2nd Man on a mighty fine meal and a great wine from Spain. Enjoy!!!

1st Man said...

Thanks! I love the toaster oven comment, SO true. And yep, I'm lucky. :-)

1st Man said...

Thanks, we stayed inside where it was nice and cool. NASCAR is fun and yep we love to eat too, ha.

1st Man said...

Yes. lots of water. The humidity does make things SO much worse. I love watermelon!!

1st Man said...

Thanks sweet lady. Bucatini is like thick spaghetti but it's a hollow tube, it has a hole running down the middle. SO yummy. Of course I like ANY pasta.

Rhyme away any day! Oh wait, I see what i did there, ha.

1st Man said...

Thanks, we love our weekend once a week bottle of wine. Just enough to relax you after a long day.

1st Man said...

LOL, thank you. He loves to cook and who am I to complain? HA! Stay cool!!

1st Man said...

HA! Do you know he put the plates down and went "there is nothing green on there!" It's ok though I was so full I wouldn't have had room. I promise we had veggies the next day for sure. :-)

And we raise out glasses right back to you! Thank you sweet lady!!
