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.
