After dropping Big Guy off for his last day of Mission NOW, Little Guy and I had some errands to run. We were discussing what we could do as a "mission" project today. We thought it would be fun to do something for hubs. We decided it would be fun to surprise him at his office with a picnic. After talking we also decided that we would challenge ourselves a little further by only using the things we had at home. We wouldn't buy anything from the grocery store.
We went home and started looking through the cabinets. So like me, Little Guy picked dessert first! We stirred up and placed brownies in the oven to start baking. We had grapes in the refrigerator so we washed and put those in a ziploc. I found some shrimp in the freezer and Little Guy found some whole wheat rigatoni in the pantry. Ta Da! We decided to create a lemon pepper pasta.
After everything was finished we kept debating on what to take to drink. Water just sounded so boring. So we pulled out the blender and decided to make fruit smoothies. We threw in strawberries, mangos, pineapples, peaches, a little yogurt, some ice.... we kept sipping and sipping.
Now everything is ready and we have a few minutes until we have to leave. We are both so hungry and can't wait to surprise hubs! My pic isn't great, but Little Guy was just so proud. He has already started thinking about what we can do for Big Guy to welcome him home tonight after a long week of volunteering at Mission NOW.
