Menu Monday and Weekend Scenes

Soooo we haven't been having the best luck lately.  Last weekend a dead car battery and a leaky second floor bathroom.  This weekend my new car was rear ended while we were traveling on 95 north.  Fortunately no one was injured and my car wasn't badly damaged.  We felt badly for the guys from the Brown University men's rowing team who were on their way to cheer on friends at the Head of the Charles when they got hit and then hit us...their 2002 Passat wasn't looking too good!  The gentleman that caused the accident was driving with a suspended license and no insurance.  His vehicle was towed away!

Aside from that little mishap, we enjoyed our weekend!  Here are a few highlights...

We hit the Head of the Charles Regatta on Saturday, it was bit windy and cool, but the sun helped warm the air.
We were invited to the Bank of New York Mellon hospitality tent, but a the last minute they decided not to admit children!  Boo!
The kids were fine with that and grabbed some chowder bread bowls at a food stand, I however, may have gone into the tent to grab a salad for lunch! 
There are always lots of vendors and fun things to do aside from watching the races.  I also may have enjoyed some Teddie Peanut Butter...my favorite!
We pit stopped at home before heading out to dinner.
 We hit our favorite Italian restaurant in Providence, Pane E Vino to celebrate National Pasta Day!
 I ordered the housemade squid ink linguine fra diavolo with lobster...heavenly!
 Dessert is always a hit their too!  Gelato and cannoli for the girls...
 Tiramisu for Mr. PS...
Sunday after our accident, we hit an open house for a 7-12 school for Reagan and stopped by Whole Foods on the way home and picked up the makings of a turkey dinner.  I brought home fresh cranberries from Nantucket last weekend so that's what inspired us! Mr. PS lit a fire and we enjoyed a late dinner after a crazy day!

As for this week, here's what's cooking...

Monday- Pumpkin Ravioli with a Brown Butter Sage Sauce and Mixed Greens

  1. Poor you. You have had some tough luck. We have been rear ended twice. It stinks because you never quite expect it or realize it is coming. Hope you are all okay. Here's to hoping for a quieter week.
