My parents arrive today.
Dad is teaching a statistical analysis in the laboratory workshop at a local biotechnology center next week, so they’re using our place as a B&B and base of operations. I need to stop by the Ferry building to pick up some special ingredients so my muse and I can make dinner for them.
First things first, time to stop to hang with acrobats for a few hours.
Alan, E-Beth and Kendra are a blast to fly with.
Michael is doing some setup for the upcoming shows.
I wasn’t able to find everything I was looking for at the Ferry Building, so we had to improvise a bit, but it turned out really well. Dinner at home:
- A tasty Burrata (my muse’s idea, and a good one), with tomato, basil and olive oil
- Steamed clams in a spicy wine sauce
- Seared grouper and asparagus
- Gelato, macaroons and a blueberry tart
- Wine we brought back from Ingrid’s vineyard
Over dessert, we tell them about Secret Plan 170, which involves them (and will likely require an armed escort, but just for a few days). They’re up for it. In fact, they can’t wait.
Random assertion: If you enjoy cooking and traveling with your parents, they have surely done their job well.
