Friday Favorites: Lunch Date

Lunch dates with Pete are one of the best parts of my week. Lately we’ve been having lunch together on Fridays. It’s a great day to sneak away from the office for a little time together. I know date night is popular but I’m fine with lunches for now. Little Grant’s at daycare so there’s no need to call a sitter. It’s the perfect break in the work day and a nice pre-weekend ritual to boot. Today’s lunch date is planned for a new(ish) cafe in our neighborhood. I’ve already decided on a chicken salad sandwich with collard green salad. Can’t wait to eat, and even better, to enjoy the company I’ll be keeping.

This picture is an oldie but a goodie; I took it almost exactly two years ago on my second trip to Uganda. Whenever  we meet for lunch I seem to remember that day: the steamy walk up the hill from Backpackers in Mengo, the crisp, sweet taste of a delicious cane sugar Coca Cola, Pete and his knockout Luganda skills, and actually enjoying matooke. Fond memories from great lunch date…
