Some years ago, I started talking about Pasta and Chardonnay Thursdays. They came about because my husband was playing Thursday evening golf with his workmates, and then going out to dinner with them. Which left me to enjoy things my husband doesn’t particularly like, like pasta, and chardonnay. The last year or two though, these nights have gone by the wayside, as the workmates pulled out of Thursday night golf, or as they retired, and Thursday night golf became Monday and Friday mid-day golf. But today, he had a date with another group of ex-workmates for drinks and dinner. And I got to enjoy pasta (pesto, cream and cherry tomatoes) and chardonnay for dinner. It was perfect. Just like old times!
