I feel like this weekend flew by! It all started early with a coworker unexpectedly quitting! I was blown away, literally, no idea! So I had a pretty heavy work load and then my parents plans changed so they came in a day early from Richmond. Luckily our house wasn't too messy when they came over and apparently our little Kondog was a gracious host while they waited for Chris and I to get home. We were able to snag a table at Acme for dinner and dessert. I love it there, it's so good and pretty casual. My mom and I shared a few plates and Chris and Dad had some scrumptious southern cooking. I think we were all pretty tired from our long week and called it a night early. I made everyone breakfast the next morning and they headed out before the storm! There were tornado sightings near us and the alarms were going off! I guess we live close enough to a campus entity that we can hear the tornado warnings along with a voice over saying a tornado has been sighted!
After we got the all clear I ran out to get ingredients for this stew Chris and I have been enjoying for the past few days. I actually made 2 batches so we won't have to worry about dinner for a few nights! Chris liked it even with mushrooms! I decided to make it with red wine rather than beef broth and it was very tasty. We enjoyed the lovely weather on Sunday with a long walk with Kona. I then had to take on the arduous task of taking down our Christmas decorations. :( Yes, I waited til mid January to take them down! Don't judge! We actually still have Dr. Chris' resident tree on our deck, still lit. But what are you gonna do?
I hope everyone was safe and had a great weekend!
