|My parents on their wedding day!|
We spent Friday day and night with my mother in law. We did a little cooking and shopping during the day - her high school reunion was the next day so we made a salad for her to take and found some pretty new earrings. That night we went down to Pegasus for dinner - it was delicious! I had the veal and artichokes, sauteed in a lemon caper sauce. It was served with salad (with the most delicious feta), rice and green beans. We were all so stuffed we skipped the homemade tiramisu...which sounded wonderful!
Saturday we headed across town to my parents house. After a quick lunch, we went shopping with mom to some of our favorite home furnishing stores - Wild Orchid Antiques and Williams & Sherrill are 2 of my favorites. They just have beautiful things, especially Williams & Sherrill. I love walking through there and wishing I could just buy everything! It is a little pricier than our budget, so we love to go and get ideas.

After a delicious heirloom tomato salad, I had the Bourbon Glazed Grilled Pork Loin Chop. Seriously, look at that sucker! It was absolutely delicious. Husband had the Bourbon Braised Pork Belly and Shrimp and Grits appetizer and raved about both of them. Mom also had the shrimp and grits, and dad had the grilled Beef Tenderloin and both said they were wonderful as well.
Throughout the evening, all around the restaurant, people were ordering the tableside Bananas Foster. It reminded me of our last trip to New Orleans! I love when things are prepared tableside - it's so fun to watch!
Mom had made pound cake with strawberries for our birthdays, so we headed home (stuffed) after dinner. I definitely would love to go back to Julep's and try some other dishes - everything we had was wonderful!
On Sunday, before heading north up I-95, we stopped to see some good friends and meet their new baby, Ridley. Nick and husband went to college together, and he and Blair got married 6 years ago. The boys were each groomsmen in the others weddings.
