We had the fun pleasure of having our two cousins from my husband’s side of the family come and surprise us; Nathan and Carly have been coming to see us since they were little and they still like coming even though they have their own adult lives which makes us happy to no end. They are such wonderful individuals, we always have a fantastic time together talking and eating, we love, love cooking and baking for them, they are the best guests because they appreciate it so.
My husband was the master chef yesterday and today, he threw rib eye’s on the grill, made mashed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms while my caramels, elephant ear cookies and the chocolate and pear tart were eaten not once but many times during the two days. Today my husband made spaghetti and meatballs, I made brussel sprouts with bacon, my husband made tons of extra bacon and all of that gradually found its way down to everyone’s tummy.
They were both sympathetic to my diagnosis, but most importantly they made for a delightful distraction.
We are so glad they came, they are two of our favorite people.
