We had great plans to go out on Friday night, but with the rain and long week behind us, we opted to stay local, shop for a new laptop for the Señor, and have dinner at one of our local old-school favorites.
Saturday found us running errands, like getting one of the cars serviced and getting the food shopping done for the week.
On Saturday afternoon, we went to the BirchTree Bread Company, a wonderful local bakery that specializes in all things toast and coffee. The bakery is located in a great old building that houses a weekend farmers' market and the cutest collection of curated boutique items, antiques and handmade goodies.
A lovely courtyard for al fresco enjoyment.
The Señor tried an olive and herb toast spread with whipped feta and drizzled with olive oil...SO good!!
I had my regular: local wheat toast with cultured butter, local honey, and sea salt.
Then, it was a movie for date night, and we opted for the biographical drama, Papa: Hemingway in Cuba.
Then, we had the wonderful opportunity to take my parents and my mother-in-law out for lunch in honor of Mother's Day.
We went to a traditional Portuguese restaurant, featuring food from Portugal and the Azores. The Señor and I had been there before, but it was a first for our parents. The restaurant and staff did not disappoint, and we all had a great time.
Appetizers of cured cheese and prosciutto and
above that, morcela (blood sausage) with sweet potato.
My husband and father took care of the morcela...it's not for me.
Grilled octopus was one of the entrees. I opted for arroz marisco...a Portuguese paella of sorts.
Mom and me doing our annual backseat selfie.
Backseat selfies with my mother-in-law.
My Mom and Dad.
I'm still my Dad's girl.
An emotional mother and her son.
And one with my Señor.
How was your weekend?
