Woo hoo! We finally pulled off episode three of Feminine Hijinx, thank you, thank you. It felt great (hearing myself saying the word “great” on FH, not-so-great, OMG, soooo Minnesoooota, it cracks me up every time, and I say it a lot) to get out of the house, and over to Suz’s, to see my girls and have a chat. I have been holed up here for so many days, loved getting out the door!
And today, out the door again (proof, at left, ha), I have lunch with my aunt Marge – my aunts Mary and Marge both drive in to Minneapolis from Willmar to get their hair done, which is lucky for me, because I get to meet up with them for lunch when they do (although I had to miss Mary and Brucie last week because Nathan was sick). Today we’re eating at Kozy’s, at the Galleria, a relatively new spot that I’ve been meaning to try. It’s always fun to see Marge! (I had the funniest thing happen upon waking this morning – my usual thoughts, what day is it… what do I have going on today… I groggily opened my eyes, and the first thing I saw was the word “Marjorie” on the book at my bedside, The Woman at the Washington Zoo by Marjorie Williams, and I thought, oh! Lunch with Marge! Hurray!)
Not quite sure yet what the dinner plan is, I’ll have to see how big my lunch is and go from there…
Seeing Marge at lunch was awesome, as I expected. She is so lovely, definitely a day brightener. She reported that my uncle Jim and cousin Kim are sick too – everyone’s going d..o..w..n… So irritating. We Need Spring! We Need Spring! I stopped at the store on my way home to pick up a few ingredients for dinner and also bought myself a basket of forced bulbs – I need something fresh and blooming in this house! We Need Spring!
I’m not making a particularly spring-y dinner tonight (although tomorrow night I’m planning lamb chops and asparagus…). Swedish meatballs (recipe posted in comments, below). Nathan loves them, and so do I. John, not so much, but he won’t be with us for dinner so it’s a perfect night to make them. I’d happily have them with mashed potatoes (prrrrr…), but then I lose Nathan, so I’ll go with egg noodles. And a salad, I could use a salad. Definitely getting back an appetite for real food. Yes!
Good meatballs, nice. Happy Natie, can’t beat that. Have a good night!
