We have a houseful this weekend. My sister-in-law, who lives in the Utica area, came in town on Thursday for…I’m not sure why. Dentist appointment on Friday, maybe? I wasn’t paying attention, to be honest. Later that evening, my sister rolled in for a long weekend. It’s funny having all of these people in my house. When we bought it, we thought it was a good-sized place. Add The Kid into the mix, and suddenly we’re crowded. My sister is sleeping on an air mattress in the dining room. She’s okay with this because the bed butts up against the liquor rack.
Friday night’s dinner was a trip to our new regular haunt: Stella’s Diner. It works out quite nicely for dinner. We eat early enough (5-ish) that we can beat the crowd and The Kid devours their pancakes like we don’t feed her (the truth, of course, is that she has made picky eating an artform).
Last night, we were one sister lighter (my in-law) so Dinosaur Barbque takeout was the call. Stellar, as usual. I had the brisket and was slightly let down after my recent trip to Dallas. It’s an unfair comparison, really, to compare the two. It was good, but you know, not quite Texas. Though it was takeout, we still managed to eat too much, which is not an impossible feat for the Dino.
Today’s shopping trip is what my sister would call “Family Fun Time.” The four of us stormed Wegmans, which was packed, and still managed to spend $70 on this list. I wonder just how we manage to do it sometimes.
