A potential work crisis and a missed flight, and Andrew is here!
I was a starvin’ marvin’ by the time we got to Karen’s at 5:45 and was so excited for a meal!
And of course a little Mark West, which she always has for us. Such a great mid-priced pinot.
No time for cocktail hour – Karen had to get to choir practice so we had to eat promptly.
She made this AWESOME beef + veggie soup (don’t have the recipe – sorry! It was pretty classic)
Plus a spinach salad with veggies and nutz
And Trader Joe’s cornbread, which is awesome!
With some tea. Delish!
Karen left for her rehearsal (she’s in a Xmas performance in a few weeks for a barbershop choir!) and we had a sip more wine and cleaned the kitchen
We will likely move in with Karen if we sell our house before July. This is one kitchen I wouldn’t mind cooking in!! It was even fun to clean.
A while later Andrew and I dipped into the ice cream Karen bought for us while Matt napped. He’s had a reallly long, hard pre-holiday baking week 🙁
I had a taste of each flavor with an unphotographed shortbread cookie. Love shortbread! I need to bake some. Have any recipes?
Tonight was a great intuitive eating night. I was never full and enjoyed little bits of everything on the menu, and everything tasted simply delicious.
I’m debating going to bed kind of early so I can get a head start on my day tomorrow by getting up early. The brothers are brewing beer and I’ve got some setting up to do before we host our families on Thursday. My parents are coming to spend two nights and Matt‘s dad and Cheryl are coming too! It’s going to be a full house. Can’t wait!
