A Fun Lunch Date and the Weekly Menu

Our vacation plans got stalled last week so we ended up staying home and taking care of some business.  All was good.  Frank's eye is healing properly.  His second heart doctor was amazed at the shape he was in for his age, especially considering what he has been through in the past year. 

Man with Wine

Tuesday night a huge storm went through our area and power was out for over 24 hrs.  I went and took care of the food pantry distribution and when I came home we invited our neighbors to join us in the pool.  We, fortunately, have a whole house generator so weren't affected by the power outage.  

Cider and Wine

On Thursday we took a ride out to Blake's Farms and Cider Mill.  They have a restaurant and tasting room so we decided to relax and have some fun before we ran some errands.  Frank ordered a glass of their house Merlot and I ordered up a flight of hard ciders for tasting.

lunch plates

Frank ordered up a burger and I had the best sandwich of brie and apple jam grilled on sourdough bread.  OH MY YUM....

Yesterday we met up with Nicole and Pierre for breakfast.  Pierre's birthday is a couple of days before mine and this was the first opportunity we have had to get together to celebrate.  We also celebrated a new job for Nicole.  After 20 years in the restaurant business she is going into a completely different field.  

This afternoon we have a baby shower to attend.  Next week is, again, filled with doc appointments.  It has been one year since Frank's ppc crash and all of the doc's (and there were tons of them) want to see their walking miracle and make sure he is healing properly.  

So here is the weekly menu.  Please stop back each day as I share bits and pieces of our life here on the farm.  What's on your menu this week?
