Anyway, they took the Red Line to our place from their neighborhood, which I believe must run slower on weekends or something...it wasn't quick. Hopefully the purple line Mom's planning on taking to work tomorrow morning runs faster! Well, they got the tour of the apartment and our building. We're still waiting on that couch so our seating options are limited, but we had food! I improvised a pasta salad for lunch that ended up turning out pretty well, after chuck's suggestion to add more oil. I was working off a recipie I used last week for black bean salad And as always the carrot cake from Vegan with a Vengance was fantastic, I owe all the credit to the great recipie.
We ended the visit with a trip to Sam's Wine & Spirits near the station my parents were already headed toward. I used their cool computer bar encyclopedia thing to look up a drink to make with leftover pineapple juice from the carrot cake recipie. I ended up printing out the recipie for a Beach Bum. Hopefully sometime this week my parents will stop by again and we can mix up some drinks!
