Peanut butter and picnics

Such a good weekend was had. A proper weekend, if you know what I mean - enough rest and socialising. Balanced, for a change.

On Friday night TSC and I finally got to try Gourmet Garage's peanut butter burgers. Yum! I understand now why they're famous. I love, love, love peanut butter. It goes with anything (except toothpaste and avocado. Trust me on this - you don't need to try it). We're definitely going back to try the peanut butter shake next time. Mmmm...

Saturday was a lovely, lazy day. We only ventured out for brunch at The Tearoom at Crabtree & Evelyn, where we had lovely English breakfasts and played Scrabble. That's what I love about The Tearoom - it's quaint, quiet and they have board games :-)

Other than that, we chilled at home, did little things we never get around to doing (for me, this is always painting my toe nails - never seem to have the time or inclination) and even had a blissful afternoon nap.

Sunday was busier - pilates and then a picnic at Lonehill Park, organised by our church small group. We asked everyone who came along to bring something off the needs list for Oasis Haven, the organisation our church supports. We all seemed to have the same idea - three people brought kettles! And lots of sugar. But it was fun. Then it was off to church and home to catch It's Complicated, which made me smile the first time we saw it. I enjoyed it just as much last night. Meryl Streep really is brilliant.

Today it's back to work. Just finished that website copy, now I must draw up some quotes, do some admin (blergh), try to get hold of people I'm supposed to be interviewing for the magazine articles and not let my attention get side-tracked by everything on the internet!

In other news, I discovered why my dates have been confusing me SO much lately! I've been switching between wearing two watches and the one watch was set to the incorrect date.

Silly girl.

Peanut Butter Burger....OMW....need to have that!

Sounds like a perfect weekend!

I think the peanut butter burger has to be tried to be believed. Cos somehow, I can't imagine what it would be like/whether I'd like the combination.

Glad to hear you had a restful weekend.

Just catching up on yr blog - my wireless is down back back to my cellphone connection which is painfully slow.

Peanut butter burger? Hmmm, not so sure about that. I love peanut butter - but on it's own. Don't give me peanut butter cookies, cupcakes etc etc. Oh, but have you tried peanut butter & cheese? On toast? Or fresh white bread? you just HAVE to.

Love weekends like the one you had - feels like you've actually had a bit of a rest.

Glad that you're so busy and that all the work complications have sorted themselves out. Yay!

I somehow find myself with two kettles at the moment, through no fault of my own, so if you want another one just let me know? ;-)

That peanut butter burger sounds delicious!

Tamara said...

phillygirl: Yup... It's officially been added to my "foods I crave" list.

Hayley: You do. It was :-)

Godfrey: It's worth trying, I promise.

Shayne: No peanut butter cookies?! They're the best. And Reece's Pieces. Mmmm... chocolate and peanut butter - two of my favourite things together.

Louisa: I have two kettles too, but thanks for the offer. And seeing Oasis Haven now has three, I think they're sorted too ;-)

Ooh I also love peanut butter! I think we need to make a trip there too!
