Dinner out and in

Yesterday afternoon the hubster and I were invited to dinner at our son and his girlfriend’s apartment.  Our very first visit!  It was delightful!

They live smack in the center of Philadelphia in what is popularly known as University City, which is where Drexel University and the University of Penn have their campuses.  Their apartment is a restored and converted old Philadelphia home.  The front porch is beautifully tiled.  Inside the side walls are exposed brick.  There is laminate flooring through out, a new kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and glass top stove.  The living room and kitchen are one big room which they’ve sectioned out with a couch and table.  They’ve decorated the bathroom in pirate style with skull and crossbone shower curtain, fishnetting with shells and a stuffed manta ray…all absolutely great!

They made Chicken Cordon Bleu with white cream sauce, mushroom couscous and fresh corn on the cob.  Dessert was Breyer’s French Vanilla ice cream.  Absolutely delish!!

They have no TV but our son is a Boston Red Sox fan like his Dad, so the game was on the iPhone/radio.  We chatted all afternoon into early evening.

It was such fun to be with DS and his GF.  They are hilarious together and clearly care for one another.  I look forward to doing it again.

  1. That sounds so nice. Cherish your soon to be good old days. I remember ours. We have lots of good memories when we did that with our kids when we were younger and healthier

  2. Sounds wonderful. I remember visiting the museum in downtown — the one with the huge steam locomotive that was so big they couldn’t find track with sufficient gauge to bear it, so it’s never actually been in service — is your son’s place anywhere near that?

    I remember the fun of seeing my daughter getting to know her “Fate,” as Jews call the person you are destined to marry. Sounds like your kiddos are “fated” for each other! Many years to their relationship!

  3. I have some vague memory of being in that part of Philly yeas ago when on the general Board of the ABC. That would have been in the early 1980’s.
