Dinner in the Dining Room!!

Sunday, May 19, 2019

Last evening son and daughter were both here for first family dinner in the freshly painted dining room -- using the "good" china from the restored china cabinet (glass shelves, lighting) and a new very pretty table cloth exactly the buttery shade of the walls with damask tulips . . . yes, it's in the washing machine having suffered a few exuberant stains!!

We enjoyed the first of the season local Ontario asparagus oven roasted and shared a big spinach salad with local greenhouse mini cukes and grape tomatoes and sunflower seeds and maple Dijon dressing. Vegan DD and I had roasted crunchy spicy chickpeas with chili flakes and cumin and onion -- the guys of course had honking huge BBQ steaks!! And then a cake for dessert made by DD in belated celebration of DS's recent birthday and Mother's Day.

It was a lovely time: with 3-handed Scrabble afterwards (DH was too exhausted) where DD and I were in time-honoured tradition thoroughly whomped by DS.

And we have a little more time with DS before he needs to depart back north for work . . . I'm hoping we may get out for that long-delayed wildflower walk in the woods.
