Sunday already?

It's been a busy weekend. This is the first day since Wednesday that I haven't had a huge list of errands to run and calls to make.

Yesterday was fun though. We went hiking in the morning - nothing too brutal - just a five mile loop up to Dog Lake and back down. Then mad grocery shopping and dinner prep. We made dinner for our friends who just had a baby. Figured that this way they could enjoy adult company and not have to worry about cooking or clean-up. Of course, they didn't tell us that they had invited 3 other people as well... Fortunately, they arrived with a healthy slab of Salmon to add to the food we brought. Also fortunately, we cooked more than we'd need with the idea of leaving leftovers for the new parents. There were no leftovers.

We had sole and salmon, brown and black rice, fresh zucchini from the garden, grilled red peppers, homemade bread, and homemade apple pie for dessert. Yum. Quite good and very colorful on the plates.

Of course, we also got a nice peek at the little one. Just twelve days old. He's got the longest fingers and toes I've ever seen... his dad's already planning out the musical career: piano and/or violin. They call him The Burrito because they fold him snugly in his blankets for bed like a little burrito with a baby's head on top. Yum. So cute. So tiny.
