Weekend Wrap-up

The longest month of the year finally closed out with warmer temperatures and some neighborhood roads still tricky to navigate. We had no big outing plans for the weekend, but enjoyed the ability to live normally after the blizzard. On Friday night, we tried out a service, Blue Apron, that delivers a 3 pack of interesting meals with just enough ingredients for two people. We started with a shrimp and pineapple rice meal paired with a riesling that Rebecca picked up on her way home.

On Saturday, I hit Costco to replenish our low winter supplies of red meat and grains. In the evening, my parents came over for a late-late Christmas and a dinner of corned beef and cabbage. We talked about the 8 million TV shows they've watched in the "Nordic Noir" genre recently and then ended the evening with Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Colin Firth as an action hero.

Sunday was a quiet recovery day, with Rebecca off at her penultimate yoga teacher training classes for most of the day. I puttered around the house, charted the drastic loss in our mutual funds since last month, and then learned how to navigate my new phone. For dinner, we ate Blue Apron meal #2: Chicken Pot Pies (review to follow when we've eating all 3).

How was your weekend?
