Friday is quickly becoming salsa for dinner night. Our new place is walking distance to the neighborhood Trader Joe's so we made a quick run once we got home on Friday. We picked up stuff for the veggie burgers and my newest obsession Cowboy Caviar, which is basically a corn and black bean salsa. We make ours stretch a little further by mixing one jar of the caviar with a can of black beans (drained). It's a quick and cheap way to double the salsa :) We planned to make up the veggie burgers as our main course, but after demolishing the salsa we thought it would be best to hold off.
The weather was as beautiful as predicted. Saturday morning we walked up to Piedmont Park. We're beginning to establish a nice walking routine through the park: in through the 10th St entrance, back to the dog park, rest while Luca runs wild with his new buddies, walk out through the farmers market, then home past the Flying Biscuit.

This time there was a special treat after the dog park. A King of Pops stand just happened to show up right as we were leaving. Not wanting to mess with fate, we both indulged in a pop. Arnold Palmer for Mike and Raspberry Lime for me. Messy, but worth it.
|Hooray for King of Pops!|
Once home we got to work on the burgers. I made two types: basic black-bean and curried chickpea. Mike grilled them up, and we nom-ed them down to the Little League World Series which I got weirdly into.

Next on the agenda: WHIRLYBALL!! Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. I got to meet the new first years and hang out with some of my fave new second years. As a surprise bonus we ended up heading to the house of one of the old second years. It took a while for us to get back into our grove, but a few games in Mike and I were rocking at beer pong. TEAM SOCIE!
I hope your week is off to an awesome start!
