I don’t know about you, but I find Monday’s really tough. I’m sure you do too, because they just suck. Seriously, does anyone like Mondays? No. No one does.
I wanted to insert an ecard in this space, but because it’s MONDAY I can’t get it to work. So here’s a link: Mondays!
I thought it might be kind of fun to recap my weekend on Mondays? My thought process: If I start my Mondays off by thinking about all the good things that happened on the weekend, I feel like it could make my Mondays better? Maybe? I don’t know. I’ll try it.
Okay so this weekend was a long weekend for most of us here in Canada (Good Friday is a statutory holiday). Long weekends are always that much better than a regular 2 day weekend – 3 days of sleeping in – woot!
Generally, Easter weekend = food in our home. I cooked a small turkey on Friday and used this recipe: Perfect Roast Turkey – Ina Garten (Food Network). It’s the second time I’ve used it and I think it’ll be my go-to turkey recipe from now on. All the butter makes the turkey moist and juicy and the fresh herbs, garlic and onion stuffed inside gives it a really nice flavor. Fairly simple to do as well! One modification – I don’t melt the butter and brush it on the bird; I soften the butter in the microwave, add the lemon juice and herbs and rub it on and under the skin.
Easter also means candy! Probably chocolate for most people but I’m partial to candy. Every year I look forward to these easter bunny jube jubes. My husband says they taste like soap but given that I basically ate most of what was in the bowl above (which I now regret as my pants are tight), apparently I disagree.
Lastly I spent a lot of time on the couch this weekend, mostly watching True Detective. I’ve heard good things about this series so, as the weather was kind of crappy outside, we felt no guilt in hunkering down and binge watching the first season. It stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson and it’s a crime/mystery type series. It’s kind of dark and disturbing and I found it hard to follow at first but I was quickly sucked in, and before I knew it, we had watched all 8 episodes. It sounds like every season will be completely different from the last so I can’t wait for season 2! The fact that Taylor Kitsch (swoon!) and Rachel McAdams will be staring in it have absolutely
everything nothing to do with that!
Wishing you a great week!
