While in upstate, we were treated to a lovely home-cooked meal when we arrived. I wish I had taken a picture of the Italian feast! We had chicken parmesan, which by now you should know Shawn adores, and lasagna. It was very nice after a weekend of eating out to get a homemade meal.
We also went out with a big group of family friends for wing night. $4.50 for a dozen wings? Yes, please! Only thing missing was better beer, but you can't win 'em all.
Since Shawn's parents always come to visit in the summer (or in last year's case, in October for our wedding), I never get to cook anything for them. We either grill or go out since it's too hot outside to cook. I took advantage of the cooler weather and made them a Mexican meal, given that there's not a lot of authentic Mexican food in upstate New York. I opted for chile verde and lucked out that their grocery store carried tomatillos. Given more time, I would have made tortillas, too, since the only options were Mission flour tortillas and a brand called Chi Chi's (not even going there).

It was a fun and seemingly quick visit, but we have lots of wonderful memories. It was such a delight to get to celebrate our first anniversary in a new city and then with our family. We love you!
