“Weekend” doesn’t even really cover what these last few days have been. I have quite literally had five days off from school. It’s like extra spring breaks sprinkled throughout my semester. But no complaints here 🙂 This was me most of the weekend:
Lots of couch time, lots of getting work done, and lots of Nike Training Club. Oh! And a fun “date night” for Valentine’s Day. To be honest, I think Valentine’s Day is kind of silly, but I like the excuse to tell Russ all the reasons that he’s great.
Hey, we’re even moving up in complexity! Two years ago, we sat on the floor with a candle and ate frozen tortellini and green beans (For the record- I LOVED that Valentine’s Day). Last year, we ate in the dining hall. And this year, we had a PLANNED menu and an actual table! It was great. Spending a whole lot of money on Valentine’s Day dinner is for some people, but it isn’t for me. Instead, Russ and I made a fun, rich, and delicious dinner. And we ate it all at the beautiful table that Russ set up.
I made fettuccine alfredo for dinner. I followed this recipe, but 2 sticks of butter and 1 and 3/4 cup of cream isn’t something I can get behind, so I used 3/4 of a stick of butter, 2% milk and added flour to the butter to make a roux so that it got thick and creamy.
- The garnish is chopped kale.
- The romantic set up is a beer pong table with a blanket over it.
- The chairs are garden chairs.
- And we ate in the basement (Russ’ room).
- I ate three servings of this. Soooooo good.
I love Russ because he loves me even when I look like that^.
And for many other reasons! 🙂
Have a fantastic week!
