Today was kind of a neat day. Though it was longer than I would have likes it we were able to spend some time with my family, my in-laws and my sister-in-law.
We all got together at my sister-in-laws apartment to celebrate my wife’s parents birthday. They have birthdays that are very close to one another and, given the nature of the economy and the fact that my mother-in-law was recently laid off, it made sense to maximize this event. So my wife and her sister decided they were going to make a dinner for their parents to celebrate their birthday.
Cioppino was the order of the day and it was some kind of good. I have never had it before and I gotta say I could get used to a few more bowls of that stuff. It is sort of like crawfish stew mixed with a seafood soup. It has a very oceany flavor and it is very filling. Plus it was hot and the day was chilly so it made the end of the day so much better.
Throw in the fact that we were surrounded by family and food and football and, well, you can rest assured that I had a fantabulous time. Oh yeah, and the Colts beat the Patriots. If nothing else happened tonight that in and of itself would have been enough to make the night better than ever.
