Visit With Sister In Full Swing

Well well well....we had a party so that sister could meet some of our more "appropriate" friends. (We tried to keep the raunchiest friends out of view which is clearly why most of you weren't invited.) We enjoyed a yummy pasta dish that I threw together -- bow tie pasta, kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, roasted peppers, red chili flakes, chopped garlic, and Parmesan cheese. Combined with the grilled pineapple and veggies and the to-die-for desserts, it was quite the evening. We broke her Ikea virginity today as well -- complete with those disgusting Swedish meatballs that you'd never catch me eating. I hit the gym this afternoon while she stayed home with hubby. Tonight, we're doing the Blue Moose vegetarian restaurant across the street from our place and then heading to the St. John's Pub in North Portland to see Milk. Tomorrow will include Mexican at a favorite little haunt with my mother in law.

That pasta dish is to die for. I bet there weren't any leftovers afterwards. Glad to hear that everyone is enjoying themselves.

Popped the IKEA cherry! Plus bow tie pasta? WOW! Does it get any better than that?

Your such a good partner,brother,son, and in-law, and a cook to boot.
I thought Milk sucked. Why torture her? Just pop in a copy of Jeff Stryker's Powertool and have some nachos at home. She'll be glad you did!

The food alone sounds worth a trip to your place!

I am glad you are having a splendid time.

I wasn't even aware we had Ikea cherries. It didn't even hurt when I went in the store my first time.
