My old (meaning long-time) friend, Alex, her husband Jon, and their kids Emerson and Kincaid came to visit after hitting the U of M game this weekend. It's been almost two years since we've seen each other, but it feels just like it did years ago. The kids played, the grown-ups talked, we ate, and we drank a bit (some more than others). After the kids went to bed, we gathered around the table for Ragu and Guiness Ice Cream, both thoughtfully prepared by Blake. Blake actually adapted a recipe from Ad Hoc at Home to make the ice cream for Alex, knowing it is one of her favorite treats to eat in Ann Arbor (if anyone wants the recipe, he told me he'd be happy to post it). We were so thankful to reconnect with them on Saturday night. It is always just plain fun.
On a slightly different note, Blake also slow roasted a pork shoulder tonight on our recently-acquired-via-a-gracious-hand-me-down Weber grill. I'm so grateful for my weekend chef!
