the good news first.

…the weather was absolutely beautiful, we got to see Katie two days in a row, we cooked, we laughed. Almost makes the bad news (did you see the GT vs BC game?) seem not so bad.

Saturday, Sara and I met Katie for lunch at The Globe. Food and service were good as always (one waiter recognized me and Katie from our last visit!). We took over a quiet corner table and pored over ads (love the new Martha Stewart line at Macy’s), catalogs, magazines, made lists and generally got better organized for Katie’s big move-in day next month.

Then the girls ditched me for a nap and a few hours of the America’s Next Top Model marathon (guess who did what?!). I enjoyed my knitting and a coffee.

and the beautiful day.

This was the best part of the game. Before the players actually started playing. The band looked good and how about those GT flags.

Sunday, Sara took a tennis lesson, and again, I enjoyed my knitting and the beautiful day.

We made garbanzo bean soup and savory biscotti for lunch. Love the recipe (it’s from a Salud! class that Sara and I took earlier this year) and it’s one of the (few) things I appreciate about the end of summer.

Katie came by to drop off her bedding purchases and stayed through dinner. We tried two new recipes from Ellie Krieger’s show that Sara watched Saturday morning – a cherry sauce for the pork tenderloin that Marc grilled and a black-eyed pea, spinach salad. Both were delicious and definitely make-agains.

Then early to bed (for me anyway) to get a well-rested start for the working week!

    Printed out the b.eyed pea salad, gotta try that- looks like you’ve made progress on the stole, can’t wait to see it finished. 47 hrs +/- til the YH invades!
