z’s sister came to stay with us for a few days before they drove up North to be with their family for Christmas! While z was picking her up from the airport, I was getting dinner ready.
But first…Dessert! This is the new super fast popsicle maker that z got me for Christmas. It freezes the popsicles in 9 minutes! How cool is that!?
I made a blueberry, lemon and vanilla yogurt popsicle filling for the machine.
All ready to freeze:
9 minutes and they were done! Now they’re just chilling in the freezer until it’s time for dessert!
Time to get dinner together! z pulled this recipe out of the Wall Street Journal a few days ago and I’m so happy he did!
Ingredients from Whole Foods!
Getting the seeds out of a pomegranate is not easy!
Not blood. Just juice.
z and his sister got home just as I was finishing dinner. He popped open the wine and helped me cook the halibut.
Not only was it a beautiful meal, it was super delicious too!
We all cleaned our plates and enjoyed the popsicles for dessert! What a lovely meal to welcome A to DC
After work on Tuesday, we headed to the Capitol for a tour!
We walked all the way home from the Capitol. It was a long and cold walk! We were definitely taking a cab to dinner…
We knew we wanted to take A to Birch & Barley since we had a great experience there last time.
I ordered the Hand-Cut Tagliatelle with sautéed mushrooms, parmesan, fresh herbs. It was awesome!
I ordered a 4 oz. glass of beer (the name of which escapes me).
The bread plate came out and I fell in love…again! This time they had cornbread!! YUM!
After the bread…my camera decided to die. Just know we had a fantastic meal! z had the Roasted Loin of Lamb with Cranberry Beans, Duck Sausage, and Smoked Bacon. A had the Prosciutto-Wrapped Veal Strip Loin with Squash, Brussels, and Potato Gratín.
And…we ordered dessert! z and I split the Honeycrisp apple beignet with vanilla ice cream, caramel chantilly, candied walnuts. Seriously…where’s the bad in this?
Another delicious meal with amazing company
