Hey all. Back from our Brimfield trip, and trying to get back into the swing of things. Although it was a relatively short trip, it was a tiring one, and I’ve been lacking motivation ever since. Just like last year, it rained for a large chunk of Friday, severely cutting into our antiquing time. The problem is, the way we schedule it, we have one full day for going through the antique vendors, so if it rains, there’s not a lot of wiggle room. We just might need to rethink the schedule for next time.
This time, for the first time, both my sister and Nicholas joined us as well. We were all looking for various things at the market, and each managed to come back with a few treasures. We’re readying ourselves to move in a few weeks (hoorah!), and I’m planning on doing a surfer/beach theme for Nicholas’ new room, so I was looking for paddles, oars, buoys, and things of that nature. We had our dinner from Rom’s for the first night, and tore through delicious lobster rolls the second day we were there. All in all, a good time and I’m already looking forward to the next trip.
For Mother’s Day, everyone came here for an early dinner, and I kept it simple. We did Smoked Salmon Dip with crostini to start, some skirt/hanger steaks on the grill, and I rounded out the menu with other traditional steakhouse favorites, Rachael Ray’s Creamed Spinach, Roasted Potatoes, Sauteed Mushrooms and Caramelized Onions. A low-stress menu, beautiful weather and good company. My kinda afternoon.
A year ago today … nearly nothing.
Two years ago today … nothing.
We had grilled salmon Saturday on cedar planks and it was soooo good…your salmon dip reminded me of that! The creamed spinach sounds good. Happy Mothers day!
We were contemplating going to Brimfield yesterday…but my wife was way too busy *pout*
