The party was for a daughter of my dad's coworkers (both parents work at his hospital). She just graduated from medical school, so it's obviously a very big deal. My parents are very close with her parents, although I have never met the graduate before. It was great to finally see their home and meet their whole family (and play with their golden retriever Murphy!).
I sipped on a glass of white wine (it may have been sauvignon blanc) and nibbled on some passed appetizers before going inside to grab dinner. Everything looked good. I filled up on mashed potatoes, mahi-mahi with a creamy sauce, mixed salad, grilled veggies and a whole grain bread roll.
Murphy came by a few times. He said hello, and he wanted to know if I wanted to give him any of my food. I said no, but he must have interpreted that as me giving him permission to steal my dad's napkin off of his lap. Those must be yummy. Maybe I'll try eating dirty napkins for a while. It would certainly save me money on food, but I'm not sure they contain many nutrients.
After class, I was excited to get home and veg out a bit. There was just one problem. My car wouldn't start. I put the key in the ignition, and nothing happened. My mom came to the rescue by calling the towing/car repairs business that we use for everything. About 35 minutes later, my knight in shining armor (with a tow truck instead of a horse) picked me up and my car. My mom picked me up from Ernie's, and we came home for the night with one less car. It was distressing at the time, but I know that my car is in good hands. They'll know the problem by tomorrow morning.
My dad made me feel better by making ravioli. He made the pasta (not sure what it is exactly, but it's cheese and spinach ravioli from Sam's Club) and then added shitake mushrooms, diced tomatoes, sage, goat cheese and some other yum yum stuff that I'm sure my dad wouldn't want me to leave out of this list.
They will only get longer.
This is my cue to snooze. Catch ya later, friends!
