We had met some great friends today at Wheatfields after church for a late brunch/ lunch. Such a great place to meet and talk. Afterwards we hit the Sur La Table and Trader Joe's to pick up a few things fro dinner and some gifts.
We all went to our house since they ad yet to see the kitchen and watched a movie "Cowboys and Aliens". Nice film, weird but OK. We laughed and talked all afternoon, snacked on stuff and then I cooked some dinner. I had picked up 2 fennel bulbs at Joe's so we made our usual Chicken with fennel and tomatoes. I know, I just made it earlier last week but it was so tasty and they had not had fennel before. we paired it with a nice Pinot and some crusty bread from Joe's. We just laughed and talked the evening away. They loved the kitchen and we are looking forward to our traditional Christmas Eve dinner with them and more fun.
