Yesterday was a fun & busy day. We had snow. Good thing Omid was driving!
We went to breakfast at The Heathman Hotel. I wanted the Bread Pudding French Toast, but it was such a small amount & I was starving, I chose the California omelet instead. Good thing too...I didn't eat anything else all day until 9:00 p.m. when we finally ate dinner. :)
After breakfast, we headed to TJ MAXX (one of Fari's favorite stores). Omid decided it was time to get N a new comforter, blanket and several new sheet sets (the comforter is trashed from Remy sleeping with her every night). N was babysitting, but she she came home, she liked her new bedding set. Omid & I went grocery shopping and bought some things for a Persian bbq. We were busy preparing a big dinner, as Omid's sister, Arezou, was flying in from Chicago for a visit. Fari & I made a plan to leave 2 1/2 hours early to the airport so we could stop at Marshall's & DSW Shoes. That didn't happen. :( We had too much to do at home instead. While Fari was waiting for Omid & I to finish in the kitchen, she made a blog. This is the new hobby in the family. :) We watched the WSU-Stanford basketball game. It was so stressful! We were all yelling at the tv and then whooping it up the next minute. The game went into OT and WSU lost. We couldn't believe it! The third loss in a row. :( When we were finally finished, everyone piled into the car and went to the airport to meet Arezou's plane. She looked great and happy. We can't believe it's been 3 months since she moved to Chicago! We came back home and N showed Arezou a few Karate moves and did a 'take down' on her! Luckily, it was just a demonstration and N didn't use all her strength! We had dinner and Omid made joojeh kabob (bbq chicken kabobs) & kabob barg (bbq'd steak kabobs). I made the rice (it was good! yay!). This isn't Uncle Ben's, this is true Persian rice and it's not cooked like regular minute rice. It's quite a process. Omid & I have been married for almost 19 years and I have finally started getting the rice 'right' this year. That's how long it takes to make good Persian rice!!! No kidding! Omid also made mast-o-khiar (yogurt with cukes). It was a delicious dinner and so nice for us all to be together.
