dinner / movie


L - Nikon D60 / T - Nikon D40x

The drive home was so pleasant tonight - a nice breeze was in the air. I got off work at the normal time for the first time this week and was looking forward to getting out of heels and into flip flops. When I walked in the house there was the wonderful aroma of onions cooking - Taylor was busy in the kitchen, the table was set and all I had to do was fill the water glasses. Taylor had prepared Chicken Succotash for our dinner with my parents (our schedule was off because of me working late Tuesday). So to say the least, I am happy that Taylor is staying home this summer instead of in Athens like she had originally planned. / i kind of like doing the grocery shopping when i have a specific list in hand. tonight i cooked for our weekly dinner with my grandparents, but i was disappointed in the way the sugar snap peas with sweet onion vinaigrette recipe turned out. it did add the needed 'green' to the plate however. (i learned this from my grandmother - she always makes sure there is something green on the dinner plate.) tonight i'm going to the drive-in theatre with friends.

Leslye, This post fills me with pleasure to read. It is full of such simple contentment. It shows that you have all that is important. Time with family, joy in cooking and in eating, good health, and an appreciation for beauty. I love that you have a weekly dinner with your parents. That is such a precious gift. For you all.

I don't mind grocery shopping either...when I walk in the store, I am overwhelmed with so many incredible choices..we are so lucky to have such an abundant selection of fresh foods...something I am always grateful for.
That looks like such yummy comfort food!
