On Friday night, Chip had sushi and watched The Little Mermaid, turning it off before the part where Ariel leaves her father behind to marry some boy she hardly knows. Then he watched the Grizzlies game and wished he was there with Cullen. Er, with Stephanie.
Saturday, Chip drove the family wherever Stephanie asked him to, at the times she claimed were already on the calendar. Then he paid for a bunch of stuff at Target, just like he does every Saturday.
Saturday night, after driving the kids to Grammy's house at the time Stephanie told him they were supposed to be there, he was rewarded with a fine meal from his lovely, intelligent, talented wife. For the appetizer, proscuitto, parmesean, and fig jam toasts were accompanied by Four Vines "Biker" Zinfandel, a Top 100 wine. For the main course, Stephanie cooked trout amandine from the recipe found in Chip's new John Besh cookbook. It was served over oven-roasted potatoes and was delicious, if a little heavy on the lemon. It paired nicely with a 2007 Starmont Merryvale Chardonnay. Chip took pictures.
On Sunday Chip did laundry and watched football, as he has every Sunday since marrying a woman who a)doesn't do laundry, but b) watches a lot of football.
