Wow, what a nice weekend we’ve had! Thursday night, in the rain, I drove to pick Andy up from the airport as he was returning from Salt Lake City. He had a very tight, 30 minute connecting flight to catch and made it just fine, but his luggage did not. (That was ok though, as it was delivered to our door step later that evening.) As we returned from the airport, we were greeted by his parents arrival too :) They had just completed the eight hour commute from Kentucky to visit with us for the weekend. We enjoyed a pizza dinner and catching up on the latest news.
Saturday morning we had a leisurely morning and breakfast of lox and bagels…errr make that toasted English muffins – one of our all time favorites dishes.
Whipped cream cheese, with capers and diced eggs embedded and then topped with tomatoes and smoked salmon.
My mother in law and I walked the pups a couple miles on Friday (and Saturday), but other than that we stayed inside and enjoyed each others company during the day. Friday night we ventured out to Revolution, as we wanted to show of some of Durham’s stellar cuisine.
Here’s a sampling of some of the dishes…
Beer Braised Mussels
Braised Rabbit with Artichokes
Roasted Halibut with Saffron Coulis
Beet and Goat Cheese Risotto
Chinese Pork and Dumplings
John and Sandy
Sticky Toffee Pudding with Lemon Marscapone
Apple Crumb Cake with Cinnamon Raisin Ice Cream
We had a fun evening, we just love dining here. Afterwards, Andy suggested we make a trip to Morgan Imports, a superb store to wander around.
Cheese plate enjoyed during the game…we picked up the cheeses and baguette from Wine Authorities and then I added in sliced apples and smoked almonds.
Dinner later that evening was a large mixed salad and French Beef Sandwiches.
Plus, a Rhubarb-Mixed Berry Crisp…served with Vanilla Ice Cream
This morning we got to introduce Sandy and John to our priests at church, enjoy Chinese take-out and watch the UK game win the SEC Tournament!!
Wilson, catching up on the Sunday news…
We’ve said our farewells and are now having a little more chill time and then plan to watch the NCAA Bracket-ology this evening.
