Well, It’s Tuesday

This afternoon, my parents, my sister Emily and I went to Evergreen Cemery in Manitowoc to celebrate the life of John Reininger. John himself wanted it to be called a ‘fun’eral!


It was a very small and casual memorial service where close friends and family had a wine toast around the plot in a beautiful cemetery. I know it’s somewhat strange to think of a cemetery as ‘beautiful’ but I always thought that cemeteries had a kind of haunting loveliness in that they hold so many stories of so many people’s lives.

Our friends, the Campbells, put on a lovely spread of food for lunch: potato leek soup, potato rolls, ham and chicken salad, veggies with dip, potato chips, and cheesecake. We spent the afternoon noshing and chatting. I picked up a few things at my parent’s house for the upcoming bridal shower for my friend Emily this weekend, then headed back into town.

Since it’s Tuesday and I had an avocado and tomato in the fridge, taco salad was a no brainer. Unfortunately, while washing dishes beforehand, I broke another martini glass! Good thing breaking glass applies to mirrors and not martini glasses or I would be in big trouble.

First I sauteed mushrooms, red onion, and a pepper stir fry mix in olive oil over medium high heat.

Then added minced garlic, oregano, cumin, red pepper flake, and a pinch of salt.

I piled the warm veggies on top of herb salad, which I topped with fresh diced tomatoes, avocado, salsa, and a dollop of plain greek yogurt. Delicioso!

I even had Dave’s company for a few hours since he received his new computer today and was too excited to go to sleep on time. I’m hoping to get to bed somewhat early tonight to catch up on sleep and go for a run tomorrow morning….
