A Golden Evening

January 17, 2010 at 9:08 PM 7 comments

I never know where the weekends go…do you? One minute I’m welcoming in the weekend with “Hallelujah, it’s Friday”, but before I know it, I’m climbing into bed on Sunday night to prepare for another week. After hitting some funky low points this week, I’m happy that it ended with a relaxing day and golden evening. My parents and I ate dinner in front of the tube while watching the Golden Globes. I can’t take any credit for this amazing meal, but I have earned rights to brag about what wonderful cooks my parents are…

My dad made a refreshing salad, including arugula from our garden, dressed simply with olive oil & lemon juice.

However, my mom’s savory pie was the star of the night. OMG…this deep dish delicacy is a mouthful:

whole wheat pastry crust filled with potatoes, leeks, apples, swiss cheese & fresh basil

I polished off my dinner with my second cup of decaf green tea for the day and a handful of frozen bittersweet chocolate chips from yesterday’s baking extravaganza.

Treadmill workout in the morning + Blogger Banana Bread for brex…

Nighty night,

    Arugula from your own garden. That sounds so nice! I’m slightly jealous. And that pie looks incredible!

    …and banana bread for me this morning, too. Than you very much. Durry, rather, enjoyed those delicious looking cookies. I think he may have saved one for me. What a treat.
