Our Anniversary Dinner

Nell Thorn2We traveled north from our home to LaConner, Washington for our anniversary dinner at Nell Thorn.

Nell Thorn1The food was delicious. We started with Polenta Cakes smothered in a creamy Shitake Gorgonzola sauce. For our main course Dear enjoyed a Rib-Eye steak and I enjoyed a Lamb Shank with a stew of beans and greens with a lamb jus. Because I’m a lover of all things lamb this hits the spot for me.

So this new week brings some fun preparations at this old house for a much anticipated Christmas Party coming up this next Sunday. I will share fully next week. We were challenged today at church to slow down, enjoy the wonder and receive God’s love. I will consider how to do that in the midst of preparations. How are you doing?

A Week Later…

…we are still celebrating.

This time it was just Dear and I who went out to dinner to celebrate my birthday which was a week ago. Greg searched on line to find a restaurant that served some good sounding lamb dishes.

Dear enjoyed his chops…a lot. We had a pear cobbler like dish for dessert. We shared. It was nice to share a meal together at the end of a week filled with ups and downs.

What are your plans for the weekend?
