Yesterday, I had the chance to snuggle in bed way pass 9 o’clock. It was raining outside and the winds blowing like crazy, so I decided to sleep a little longer. Then I heard a knock at about 10 AM, guess who? It was my Dad all geared up and ready to explore the downtown farmers market. I thought the weather would discourage him from going, but guess not. So I cleaned myself up and put some warm clothes on (fresh out of the dryer). Surprisingly the farmers market is holding up there stalls besides the strong winds. With twenty bucks in my pocket, we started our shopping. We got ourselves some sweet tangerines, fresh honey, organic brown eggs, whole wheat breads, drop dead sweet berries (to my surprise) and a some veggies for lunch. We got all that and I still have my twenty bucks, untouched and nicely folded. Hahahaha! Dad offered to pay for all my purchases, so why not right?
And when we got home, Dad started his thing in the kitchen. He offered to cook us lunch, so we’re in for a treat. He’s making us some Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Buttered Veggies. Just the sound of it is enough to make me salivate. If there’s one thing Dad know best, that would be satisfying ones taste buds (and not counting the calories). Hahahaha! And when he was done cooking, he went back to his car and grabbed a bottle of red wine which was one perfect pair. Lunch was absolutely delightful and then, we had some Banana with Nutella for dessert. Since we forgot to get us some Banana Cream Pie from Nations.
Dad left after lunch, for he had some other plans for the day. But before he left he handed me a gift basket, something he got me from Napa Valley the other day (my old man is sweet, hahaha) — an assortment of cheeses and my most favorite sparkling wine. A Brut Rose, which I think has this wonderful balance. It’s fruity but not too sweet, it’s pink and has this subtle hint of berries, roses and peach. What can I say, even in wine, my taste is definitely queer. I had two full glasses, as I was reading Anne of Green Gables (that I got for a quarter from second hand store). What a lovely Saturday this is!
