We ate dinner at our friend's home Sunday night.. a wonderful dinner.. and while there..they offered us 2 comic books from their son's(now a daddy himself in his late 30's)comic book collections..
She has kept drawers full..and even in sealed bags.. limited editions..she is saving all..all perfectly put away..for their now 2 yr old little grandson..
After a delicious meal:) Delicious meal.. they went and got out some of the things they have held onto.
Impeccably taken care of:)
I, and my husband had so much fun admiring everything.. we had little girls.. these are mostly boy toys..(Not the record player etc..)
I love the Mickey Mouse record player with his arm:) and the See Read Hear books.. All were so charming..
These are just a few of the things they brought upstairs.Their little 2 yr old grandson..just got a big boy bed..and their son's Star Wars sheets are on it:)
Seeing all that was Soul Food to us..All their cherished son's treasured toys..soon to be for Michael~
You can tell Jacques did not enjoy this at all:)These toys..automatically bring a little boy/girl smile to one's lips~
As promised here was one of the courses of their meal which we enjoyed so much~
They made these Tomato Zucchini Verrines/ w/ Mascarpone and Prosciutto Chips~
They were gleaned from La Tartine Gourmande~
You can go here for the recipe~
They are so good..and because of the colors we all agreed..they would be wonderful at Christmas also..They were so patient..I brought 2 outside in sweltering heat to take a pic:) Imagine a hostess going for that!
Try these..you will not be disappointed~
Again..Bon Weekend..and I hope you enjoy this step back in time..Really..Back To the Future:)
