Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Tumblr

This week for date night we lit some candles…

and cooked together. One of my favorite ways to spend date night!

Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn provided great background music.

Jeff made his crawfish bisque.


It’s the best soup I have ever tasted!

recipe coming soon…

While he was busy perfecting this…

I made bialys for the first time and they turned out great!

They were wonderful with the bisque.

I made extra so we could have bialy pizzas for our Sunday lunch.


after our cooking date…

We went for a little hike on the Cannon Valley Trail.

What a gorgeous day!

A train went by…

The squirrels were out playing…

a flock of red wing black birds flew overhead…

buds were emerging on the trees…

and all sorts of flowers were waking up and beginning to bloom…

    that sounds so wondrous. Leisa I love the light in which you view the world. many would think a train rumbling by as a menace. i feel its a reminiscent whif of a romantic past swooshing by somewhere distant or close. i always love hearing and seeing a train go by! can’t wait to take one to MN soon!!!
