Happy Friday to you! Fall is definitely here and although the temps get higher during the day, our mornings are really cool and crisp. I'm in shorts and a top, but while taking Duckie out for his morning bathroom walk, I felt chilly.
Today will be a fun afternoon, for I'm taking our two oldest granddaughters to a quilt show and then we will head to a store to pick out a complete outfit for one who is turning 10 next week. I decided that this would be a fun tradition with the girls-to have Nana take the birthday girl out shopping. This includes shoes and a purse, maybe even a wallet.
So onto today's question-when you were growing up, did you have one dinner per week that was always the same? For me, Sunday's were a special family dinner~complete with Roast Beef, Gravy, Potatoes and a vegetable. It never varied and we always looked forward to that day. My dad had the ability to make a inexpensive cut of beef roast taste and look like a prime rib. It was always perfectly cooked and so delicious. I think many of us grew up with that type of family tradition. We didn't carry it over with our children; however, when we lived in Silicon Valley there was a little Chinese market near us and on every Friday they got fresh Dim Sum in from San Francisco. We looked forward to this for Friday night dinners; I do miss those delicacies, but couldn't eat them now either because I am gluten free. So what meal is stored in your memory bank of your childhood?
May your day and weekend be filled with memories that make you smile.
