Aimee got here Thursday night just in time for dinner. We took her to one of our new favorite Pearland places and hung out until bed...I missed my 9:30 bedtime :)
Unfortunately on Friday, both M and I had to work, but Friday night we all went to a new Mexican restaurant called Taco Milagro in town. The food was great; both it and the atmosphere reminded us of Baja Burrito, with a larger menu. On the way home we passed a sign saying "Houston House of Pies"...None of us could help it, we just had to go in. And boy, I'm so glad we did. We took our pies (well M got a cream puff) home and all fell asleep watching TV :)

Saturday we took Aimee to one of our ABSOLUTE favorite Houston places, Central Market. The only thing I can say to describe it is that it's a Whole Foods on Steroids. For two foodies like M and me, it's a cook's Mecca. The best part is the cafe in the store where you can get sandwiches, salads, soups, pasta, quesadillas, vegetables, dips, etc... We've lived here only 2 months and have made the 25 minute drive 4 times just to eat there.
Saturday night we (or I should say M) cooked in. He grilled a delicious salmon, roasted some peppers and asparagus, and my new favorite...swiss chard with onions/bacon/and garlic. Delicious. How lucky am I to have a husband that cooks!?
Sunday we took her to church, a little furniture shopping, and then sadly the airport :( Aimee it was so fun having you here! You are welcome anytime!
