This morning, I didn’t have time to eat breakfast because I had volunteered to work in my church’s nursery so by the time lunch came around I was super hungry. All I had for breakfast was a cup of coffee from Starbucks.
We had a nice surprise and were invited to lunch with Kyle’s parents. They took us to Mimi’s Café. I always love going to Mimi’s, I’ve never had anything there I didn’t like. We started out with a hummus sampler platter.
I think it was regular and sun dried tomato hummus.
I ordered the Mimi’s Cobb Salad
Kyle and I spent the afternoon cleaning the house because I had some good friends come over for dinner. I was excited to see them because we don’t get together very often. We had planned to do this last weekend but because of the snow we rescheduled for this week.
