Dinner tonight

Lindsey, making a killer risotto

We got up this morning and went to the farmer’s market. The selection of veggies is getting more diverse every week through the spring. We found some great stuff, including a never-before-seen (to us, at least) purple bell pepper. We also got some really nice scallops fresh from the Gulf from our new fish guy.

Yep, we have a fish guy. His name is Scott.

After an afternoon hanging out at the house (me) and shopping (guess who) we went to HEB to get our groceries for the week. As we always do now we spent about an hour studying ingredient lists and joking about anything and everything. This is also a surprisingly good thing for me. I used to hate the grocery store, but honestly I enjoy going with my wife. She makes everything we do better. It’s awesome.

Mmmm, who doesn’t love cheese, olives and cured meats?

We came home, made up a plate of fantastic snacks, opened a bottle of wine and started cooking together. Lindsey is really good in the kitchen and I love to cook so it works out well. We’re still learning some of our little habits, but we work together well and have a good time cooking.

As nice as it was to be cooking together, it was even better to sit down, talk and just get to spend some time together. Today was most certainly a blessing.

There is something important in the rhythms of life. By trying to spend our Saturdays together like this we are trying to be in sync and experience them together and fully. Today we had a day for us, where we go through our days together, knowing when to do our own thing but also sharing meals, time and laughter together.  I appreciate our time together on these days more than I could have imagined before getting married.

Scallops, risotto and some really great, local squash
