One of the recent events to bring tremendous joy to our house is with the birth of Daniel & Kristin's (my bro-in-law and elder sister) third child, Jackson Lewis Ferrill. He is absolutely precious, and we all sure are reveling in having a new baby around! Needless to say, the past week has been exceptionally eventful, and I'll write a more detailed account of it later. :)
My sweet mother has also been out visiting for the past ten days, and she has brought an equal measure of comfort, delight, and wonderful company to all of us; but myself especially (I feel). We have had many heartfelt talks (which just aren't the same over the phone or Skype, even though we're thankful for technology!) and cooked many a delicious spread.
Tonight's farewell dinner was a tried-and-true favourite, one I've been craving for a while, but saved just to cook and share with Mum:
- Bon Appétit's Chicken & Sundried Tomato Linguini topped w/ grated Parmigiano*
- Sauteéd vegetables
- Buttery garlic French bread
- Champagne (the particular brand is escaping me atm)
Cheerio for the present,
