POSITIVELY MONDAY - A FINE STRAPPING YOUNG MAN WHEN YOU NEED ONE
We managed to pull off the surprise, with dinner in tow. My sister brought "Miami Rolls" from one of her favorite local meat markets in Iowa - pork tenderloin, wrapped in flank steak, wrapped in bacon, which we threw on the grill.
I brought Appleton twice-baked potatoes and this salad I concocted of marinated asparagus, haricots vers, roasted red peppers, feta, kalamata olives, and kumquats.
For dessert, I brought chocolate mousse cups (too bad my local bakery was out of the ones with the swirly cups), and my sister brought Mom this delectable box of chocolates from a place in Iowa City I most definitely have to check out the next time I visit her.
May you have a week filled with greenery and good connections with the people who are most important to you.
