sista weekend Part 1

Good morning, dear friends.  Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  

We were delighted to entertain Sista and Bro In Law (BIL)  for part of the long weekend.  Friday night we went to a cocktail reception celebrating the Festival of the Arts in Maaahshfield Hills.  It was a chilly but clear evening.

Sista checking out the program of events for the weekend.

BIL thinking this could be a veeery long weekend. 


2 wild and crazy sistas ready to party like it’s 1999! 

When we came home, the Mister prepared the most delicious dinner of asparagus brushed with dijon and rolled in popcorn.  He also made a salad of heirloom tomatoes, radishes, golden beets and cilantro.

Flatbread of Nann with artichokes, arugula, and a shallot vinaigrette.

Baby lambchops (my very favorite food in the whole world) accompanied by a cilantro pesto.
Sorry no pic of dessert – I inhaled ate it too fast.  It was a banana chocolate conglomeration of total unbridled decadence.  All I can say is it should be outlawed in the state of Massachusetts.

And as if this post wasn’t exciting enough, I have a couple of other posts covering this weekend.  
I can hear you counting the minutes right now… 

Have a sweet Monday!

  7. Does your fabulous chef/husband have a particular recipe source for these wonderful dishes he makes? Or does he come up with them himself? I see a future Food Network star: Barefoot Mista.
