A people-filled weekend
Because it's still too early in the semester to have a book-filled weekend, Kris and I did right by ourselves and socialized this weekend. On Wed I had bumped into an old friend who now lives in Italy; he is visiting Madison for a few weeks. We had him over on Friday for dinner and to play with Sawyer. A rare treat. I stopped short of making a pitch to get him to move back to Madison--but I wish he would!
On Saturday Kris and I went out with a group from work for a phenomenal meal at Harvest. I had pheasant with fois gras emulsion. Every bite was a dream. Also, great company, lively conversation, and lots of wine tasting. We were there for 3 and 1/2 hours--it's the slow food capital of Madison, what else do you expect?
Then, to keep the party going we sat up at home that night and talked with Jen and Carlos, our noble babysitters, for a few hours about various topics (including how cute our kid had been while we were gone and their upcoming nuptials, to name a few).
I want to do it all over again!
