Day 15 - Visiting the Palmers

We drove to Reno to visit a Barnes & Noble and Trader Joes. It's been a couple of months since we have visited a B&N and ended up spending an hour wandering through the books and magazines just because we could.

We went to the Palmer’s later that afternoon and had a great reunion. Brian was in the middle of cooking the Palmer Friday evening meal - homemade pizza. The household is a blast and reminds us of the Poiriers back in Dallas when we were uncertain which of the kids’ friends would be stopping by.

We again spent the evening catching up and enjoying the camaraderie.

Evening meals at the Palmers are always memorable and this one exceeded any expectations. Tonight Brian prepared Yorkshire Pudding. The center piece was a humongous high quality roast rib of beef. The Yorkshire pudding is actually popovers enhanced with dripping from the beef. Peggy was responsible for additional components of the meal including a baked pear dessert. Needless to say, the meal was spectacular.

We actually spent the night at the Palmers and woke up to a snow shower. This was a bit of a surprise but only slightly disconcerting. We knew the snow would not last long.
