Happy Mother's Day Shelby!
I meant to get this out yesterday but we've been running around like crazy; didn't spent a lot of time online.
What we did do it take our son to the military processing center where he signed his contract with the Navy. He flies out today.
Kind of a bittersweet weekend, but we are proud of him.
I had to give a shout out to my lovely wife, Shelby, today. It's her birthday! It's crazy to think that the two of us have been together since we were both 16; she is infinitely patient with me.
She gets her Cold Stone Creamery Chocolate Chipper ice cream cake every year. This year they decided to mix it up for us by using green icing for the lettering--even though I asked for white--but it tastes the same so no harm, no foul. (Not really, use white next time!)
I hope you had a great day baby, looking forward to celebrating many more with you!
We had a "what's in the fridge" dinner last night. I ate some leftover chicken skewers and couscous and Shelby came up with a neat Feta cheese spread/dip.
She took crumbled Feta cheese, olive oil and Herbes de Provence and broiled it in the toaster oven. Put on crackers, eat. Repeat. Very tasty.
Thanks to the efforts of our friends at the Sandler Center of the Performing Arts and WHRO, we were able to catch Alton Brown's "The Edible Inevitable Tour" in Virginia Beach. The show was great, Alton Brown knew how to get the crowd going and it was fun watching him pick locals from the crowd and help him with his cooking demonstrations.
I'll write a show review and get it up soon. For now, here's a photo of Shelby and me with the man himself:
