Saaaahkaay!

Thursday was a pretty busy day. Friday was even busier. Somehow though, everything was done and ready in time to make early Shabbos. Parts of The FamBily joined us. It was a weekend of many firsts. First time The Parentals have ever stayed by us, at the same time, since we got married! Dibble's first weekend at our place, and I don't think he minded the vacation overmuch. (Buzz helped set up the guest room for him, and added some fuzzy buddies as a finishing touch.) It was also Fuzzle's first ever Shabbos away with The FamBily.
Man oh man there was a lot of food. In true Crazy Lady fashion, I couldn't stop myself from cooking and cooking and cooking.

Friday night included Chicken soup with meatballs, Persian saffron and tomato chicken, jeweled saffron and almond pilaf, roasted baby sweet potatoes, and crisp lightly steamed green beans seasoned with a touch of garlic and a drizzle of olive oil.

We went 'light' for lunch. Tossed salad, sliced veggies, spreads, glazed salmon, tomato cheese quiche, mini pizzas with a variety of toppings.

Then seuda shlishit was a veritable feast at dinner time. We enjoyed a big plate of chumus basar, ff Shnitzelonim, ff potato kugel, yellow rice and meat salad, and a selection of salatim and finger-food goodies from the local catering-hall.

Nobody left hungry. That's for sure.
When The FamBily arrived on Friday, Buzz flew out he door to greet them. He was excited about the humans, but to be honest he was over the moon that the dog was coming too! Fuzz disembarked from the van, sniffed around for a few seconds, then noticed Buzz and immediately bounded towards him in excitement! Buzz led the parade inside. Boy and dog, together again. 

It was a delightful weekend! We shmoozed and played (mostly with Lego). I wouldn't let The Crazy Lady wash any dishes, because she was on vacation. Some neighbors stopped by on Shabbos afternoon. Their son is the same age as Buzz, and the two of them played with train tracks and 'power tools' before realizing that there were cookies on the counter. It was really nice!
I have a fruit bowl and cookie jars! I LOVE my kitchen!!!

Our calendar is wide-open for next weekend. After 6 busy weekends, it'll be our first Shabbos with no plans at all since we moved. The week is long though, so that could always change.
