Seattle family, food, and fun in the last week of August

Since I returned from Houston last week, Mr. F has been cooking amazing meals nearly every night! Some highlights include, sweet pepper baked eggs, image and BBQ chicken with a pickled eggplant and cucumber salad!image We also have gone to yoga 7 times in the last 9 days! imageWe may have also indulged in  image fried green tomatoes and carrot ginger soup at Dot’s Delicatessen next to yoga.

Last weekend, Mr. F also made a delicious salmon image with a brown sugar soy glaze!  imageLast Sunday, we ran errands including picking up our freshly washed down pillows at Feathered Friends. We wanted to buy most of the items in the store, but we fortunately restrained ourselves!  imageSunday night, Mr. F and I went to our first Sounders soccer game with my sister and her boyfriend.imageIMG_1025IMG_1026imageWe scored Trophy Cupcakes as soon as we arrived! image They were awesome image and the Seattle Sounders beat Portland too! image On Monday, Mr. F made pork tenderloin and  grilled peppers with avocados, feta and a cherry tomato!  imageIMG_1037On Tuesday, my grandparents, Uncle and I went to lunch at the new Skillet Dinner in Ballard.  image It’s a gorgeous space imagewith a lot of the same entrees from the food truck, plus more! image  I got the Fried Chicken Sammy and it was divine. imageimageOn Wednesday night, Mr. F made a grilled chicken with a mustard rub along with a fresh summer salad of zucchini, cherry tomatoes and summer squash from our produce box. IMG_1047 Thursday night, we had a going away party for my cousin, who’s starting her sophomore year in college at Macalaster! It was at a lovely Italian restaurant in Ballard, called Ristorante Picolino’s. IMG_1069 IMG_1076 IMG_1080 I love dinners with my grandmother, Tootie, especially when it involves delicious ravioli! IMG_1081  IMG_1088We had the patio to ourselves too!
