The Witch, the Piano Man and the Little Princess did a bit of transplanting for Father’s Day.
And we ate… The menu included pasteles en hoja (ground-roots pockets), drunken chicken in peach wine sauce, shrimp with tomato and ricotta cream sauce, pescado sudado (Peruvian steamed fish fillet), greens and grapes with pistachio raspberry vinaigrette...
The Little Princess and I had a practice run a couple of weeks ago. She took charge of the mortar and pestle, and showed a bunch of pistachios who was boss. Those nuts didn’t have a chance.
Martha Stewart, hold on to your apron because the Little Princess’ salad dressing was delish.
Last Sunday, the Little Princess and I got up early because we wanted to surprise my Piano Man with a nice breakfast. She juiced five and a half oranges (look at those arms). Then I suggested she should challenge my Piano Man in the game of Find the Orange that Wasn’t Squeezed. She liked the idea, and said that if he found it he should be allowed to eat it. She gave him three chances and he didn’t find it, but it was Father’s Day, so she thought he should have the orange anyway ;-)
After breakfast, we did some Father’s Day crafting. My present to my Piano Man was an incredibly artistic *cough, cough* can with the words “Let’s grow something together – Messy Wild Ours.” We added our handprints to it (see first pic): mine on the left, my Piano Man’s in the middle, and the Little Princess’ on the right. It was wild messy fun. And no, I am not talking about my hair!
Daddy and Girly transplanted Gypsy Oak. The activity left the Little Princess bitten by the well-known gardening bug, so I assisted her in the transplanting of Ivydos. Hope she likes the new pot...
Here is my Piano Man making yum noises… for the camera (I was staring at his legs… and at my wine)
And even though we were celebrating him, my Piano gave us the gift of music. I was all dreamy giggles because he played my beloved “L’Adieu,” (I began to like this Chopin’s piece while watching The Others, in 2001. Then I learned a bit about its history, and fell in love with it. If you want to listen to the piece, but wish to skip the story, jump to 1:57).
It was a great Father’s Day. I’ll tell you more about it, very soon…
What have you been up to, my Wicked Luvs?
