Great Weekend with yummy food!

Stanley got up and wanted to go outside so hubby got up to take him up and was going to make breakfast but for some reason I just didn't want to eat at home. So I suggested that we go to OCB for breakfast (I actually went there last Sunday too). We came home after breakfast and hubby had to do his school work while I was playing on line and also the PSP. At about 2pm he got a call that there was a place down and it needed fixed today. I tagged along with hubby since it was a Saturday and I was glad I did yesterday. We went to Rock Falls Raceway and so happened that day they had races going on that's why they needed their pump fixed right away. I was so fascinated by the cars there. There were quite a number of people there but it wasn't full because the weather wasn't the greatest on Saturday and with the price of race fuel people wouldn't want to go if the weather is not beautiful.

Ready gets set....go!

We were planning on going for a movie in the afternoon but since hubby had to work we decided to go later in the evening. After we were done with the service call we came home and hubby continued his assignment while I took a nap before the movie.
Yeah we watched Ironman..It's an awesome movie and I'm glad we made it! We took BIL with us because he wanted to watch it too and since we were going to watch it we decided to go with him. This is a must watch movie..

I got up today feeling tired and lazy but managed to get my butt out of bed and made breakfast which consist of instant noodle..*blush* After that I did two loads of laundry before heading out. Hubby stayed home with Stanley while I went to the mall to get my make up and facial stuff and went to the groceries store to get some groceries. I felt pretty bad spending so much money today that I decided to make hubby a nice dinner. I've not cooked in about a month because we've been so busy and I've been horribly ill.

I first made some meat balls so I could cook spaghetti and meat balls. Then I proceed to make croutons so we could have some with our salad; after that it was banana cake and lastly garlic bread.

Banana bread

Ingredients

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup brown + white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup oil, or melted butter
Directions

1. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Pout into prepared pan.
2. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the cake comes out clean.

Everything seems pretty simple but if made all at once it tends to be a lot of work but it's worth it after filling our tummies up and because we now have a ton of food for the week. I was thinking of ironing the clothes too after I take a shower but by the time we got done eating and taking a shower I'm too tired to iron. I tend to be very slow at ironing and it'll take me forever to iron the clothes that we have in the basket so I guess those will have to wait. :P..

I still need to fold and keep the clothes away I guess it'll be the next thing I'll have to do after I'm done here. I need a maid!!I miss having one actually..this is what sucks about living in a western country, maids are expensive!!
