sean graduated from unr this weekend with his bs in civil engineering. i am so proud of him! no surprise, i didn’t do any baking. we had a pretty low key weekend: dog park, graduation, dinner with sean’s fam, lake tahoe, and generaly just big kickin’ it.
i think dinner may have been the highlight (aside from graduation). we went to this super cute, comstocky-style victorian restaurant in carson city called adele’s, i highly recomend it if you are ever in the reno-tahoe area. there was an herb garden in the back! sean had his first oyster on the half shell (yuuuummmm, i could eat a ton of raw oysters), escargot, lobster, grouper (my entree, with oyster mushrooms and bacon, drool), salmon, oh my. sean has been a fish hater his whole life, but i’ve been needling him for the last year or so to just “get over himself” and try it. i told him raw oysters taste how the freshest sea air smells. aparently it was just mind over matter, because he mowed through everyones seafood leftovers after slurping down a few oysters, in addition to the orange and saffron chicken that he had (which was incredible as well) needless to say, it was a successful weekend for sean in so many ways 🙂
next weekend promises to be event filled, sean’s extended family will be in town and so will my mom (who i haven’t seen for 6 months…a long time for me, i’m a mama’s girl). i am hoping to post sometime this week…but, for now here are some lake pictures at chimney beach.
