Taxes and Sons’ Visit
The taxes are done! The taxes are done!
I’ll drop off the package tomorrow to the tax preparer.
And I’ve had a lovely visit from my TWO sons, up from Charleston, SC, for a long weekend visit. Do you know how rare it is for a mother to have visits TOGETHER from sons, both of whom have intense lives at home and work. I so enjoyed this rare gift–facilitated by my wonderful DILs and my seven grand kiddos.
Both sons love lamb, so I cooked lamb shanks one night for them, with smashed Yukon Gold potatoes, roasted beets. and roasted Brussel Sprouts. Yummo! My secret for tender braised meat is my covered Creuset pot. The cooking liquid included defrosted Hope’s Edge CSA tomatoes from last summer–smashed through a sieve–and local leeks and onions and my garlic.
It was a delicious meal! And a delicious visit with those special, special people.
