I read on my cousin Erica’s Facebook post that Jordon’s Furniture in Avon has restored most of the original Jordan Marsh Enchanted Village! I remember my grandmother taking me to see this and I’m excited to be able to see it again! Since Ikea is in that area too, I think I’ll kill two birds with one stone after my visit to Mass General to get my stitches removed tomorrow. Then…most likely, it’ll be back to work, FINALLY!!!
One of my photos was on Flickr’s Most Interesting yesterday; it’s the 4th one down.
Last night, I invited some folks over for dinner and Apples to Apples, cause I absolutely could not stand being alone one more minute!
For appetizers (and munchies while playing Apples to Apples) I had 3 types of cheese (goat w/herbs, brie & Yorkshire Wesleydale with cranberries), 2 types of crackers (Special K Italian Tomato & Herb, which wasn’t so good with the Wesleydale and Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins, which were. The Special K crackers are a recent discovery for me; Megan brought some over when she stayed with me after the surgery and th ey are delish! We also had Boar’s Head smoked Italian sausage, some walnuts, dry roasted nuts, sourdough pretzels and my cousin’s Heavenly Jam, which was particularly good smeared on the pretzels!
I made a turkey breast, massaged with butter and sprinkled with chipotle all purpose seasoning (fast becoming my favorite spice mix); mashed potatoes with sour cream, butter, milk, S&P; maple glazed carrots; cornbread stuffing with onions and celery; turkey gravy; cranberry sauce (from the can…YUM!) and pumpkin pie for dessert.
Today, Wolf told me he was bored of being in the house, so we went off to Carlisle, MA, to Great Brook Park and had a nice long walk (and in his case, lots of sniffing). We even had to wade across a stream at one point! Here’s Wolf, being adorable:
How was your weekend?
