Well, Monday found us surrounded by a messy kitchen as we made delicious blintzes. Friend Andi came over to help as it's really a 3 person operation - 2 people making the shells and one person filling with the cheese filling (no SUGAR to you non-Jews...) - Andi being the 'filler'. Mom can still sling a pan so she and I made the shells. We luckily found an excellent recipe as neither of us could remember the specifics but they came out exactly right. Andi left before the meatloaf was out of the oven but toted home a nice bottle of wine and a dozen blintzes for her effort (we made her leave the chocolates she brought!).
Invited Mitch over for dinner as we knew he, being a vegetarian who lives on his own, would love a homemade meal of rice with chinese brown sauce, stir fried veggies, and blintzes. Mom and I had a slice each of the delicious meatloaf.
Sat outside for a bit after dinner and watched the 7 dogs romp and play in the yard. Early evening at the Mansion as Mom and I were upstairs watching a DVD of the Temptations for a while before an early bedtime of 10. Not a bad time at all.
