Q & A Monday: Five Things

Hey, y'all!

It was another busy and somewhat productive weekend for us here at Diva Manor.  Our Saturday consisted of me getting a haircut before we headed over to the Portland Seafood and Wine Fest.  My mother-in-law came with us this year since she'd never been.  We also met up with my good friend Nigel.  It was a really fun time!  We had about four hours there, which was still barely enough time to cover all the wines.
My husband got some seared scallops over rice pilaf with a Marsala mushroom sauce.  It was INSANELY good.  The scallops were cooked perfectly and were so buttery.  The rice was moist and flavorful, and the sauce!  OMG, that sauce!  I snatched the recipe, so we will see if I can recreate it.

Sunday was more low key.  We stayed home, slept in, and slowly got things done throughout the day.  We didn't watch the Super Bowl this year because neither team really interests us.  We did wash dogs and dog laundry and get my blogging photo studio set up.  Now I don't have to take all my outfit pics in the entryway or outside on the sidewalk that needs pressure washed...or in the rain. lol

It is time again for Friend Makin' Monday.  If you have a blog, I would like to invite you to answer the questions as well.  Leave me a comment here, so I know you are playing.  Then you can also leave a comment over at All The Weigh, so other folks can check out your answers as well.  It is a fun way to connect to other bloggers.
