*FFU=Friday Follow Up. Friday follow ups are my weekly Friday posts where I share where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to on my Portland Walkabout. I’ve got a 2000 mile goal I’m trying to achieve by the last day of 2012. Check it out!
Sunday was Father’s Day. I knew I probably wasn’t going to get in much walking this day, since I would be doing stuff with the family, and I was right.
Most of the day involved making meals for the Dads (my dad and my husband), and baking MORE cookies. By the time I finished baking, I had probably baked 15 dozen or so altogether. Now my dad can’t bug me to make him cookies for a while. “They’re in the freezer,” is all I’ll have to say!
Dinner consisted of a shrimp theme. I grilled size 16/20 shrimp on the barbecue as one dish. Marinade was butter, garlic, lemon and pepper. I also made some homemade shrimp cocktail (Dad called it a shrimp compote, but he liked it, so that’s what was important!). And I made baked stuffed pasta shells with shrimp and cheese. The baked shells were my favorite part of the whole meal. Oh, and I steamed up some baby zucchini, the only dish that strayed outside of the theme by not having shrimp in it.
Everybody loved it, and it was pretty good if I do say so myself.
So what little walking I did was mostly in regards to taking the dog for walks and a little bit of last minute shopping for ingredients.
Sunday I walked 2.2 miles.
