around the world

well seeing as we didn't win 36 million and that we are not in Italy as previously planned,
I decided to make the most of things and eat with extra enthusiasm this weekend.
We went for a delicious Indian meal on Thursday night.
Friday we had Japanese for lunch.
At both restaurants the waitresses commented on how well behaved Lulu was.
we were thrilled, yet also feeling some remorse for doubting her in the first place.
maybe we should have made the trip to Italy aferall....
oh well.
anyhow I went to the market and picked up a bunch of fresh seafood and made a Paella of sorts.
I used Farro instead of rice and added chopped preserved lemon as a garnish for a little extra zing.
I even whipped up a almond pine nut cake that was really good (if I do say so myself)
Saturday big daddy made me breakfast in bed (W.T.F ???)
first time in forever..
Home-made oatmeal with fresh berries and oj with my usual- soy latte.
Just me, my breakie and my Saturday newspaper.
The guy even booked me in for a mani/pedi appt.
double heaven.
we had friends for dinner and made some home-made pizzas,
Ham, Artichoke, Black Olive and Buffalo Mozzarella &
Roasted Red Pepper and Gorgonzola.
a little antipasto platter and a mixed green salad.
Lulu loved playing with her little friend n. who is a year older than her.
it was so adorable watching them dance around and then snuggle up on the sofa in their jammies and bottles together.
Sunday was low key with a long hike in the woods and a roasted chicken dinner (a la dominion rotisserie)
today I had Vietnamese Pho soup for lunch.
so I didn't actually win the lottery, but it sure as hell feels like it...
I must have been reallllly good in a previous life or something.
