So sad that because of the forced alarm clock at 6am we just can't (or pay royally if we do) party like the old times. It's not that I party a lot, but sometimes it'd be nice to be able to and then sleep it off the next day. Sigh. Ah well. The potluck last night was such a blast, and it's a gorgeous day here today. Despite my suspicions that four errands was way too much of a morning for O and me, I schlepped him out anyway. T and J went to violin, art detectives and are now at a G'town basketball game- go Hoyas. So O and I went out, and thank god the nursery had cookies and apple cider in the holiday decorations area. Whew- that saved me. He really is such a good little guy though, and all In all, we had a lovely date. I became inspired and decided I must make a gorgeous wreath today; now I'm feeling some buying remorse and a slight bit of anxiety as a) I've never made a wreath and b) do I really have the time? That's a negative, ghostrider. We'll see how this mission goes. In the meantime, I am sorry to say that I completely forgot to photo the gorgeous salmon, potatoes and mushrooms last night but imagine a beautiful, pink side of salmon and the veggies slicked with freshly ground rosemary, salt, pepper and olive oil. It was so pretty and so good. I just had the little bit of leftovers for lunch and felt seriously happy to have them. The recipe is posted if you're interested.
Off to make some cranberry sauce.
