Herb-Crusted Prime Rib. Parsnip Purée. Pan-Roasted Asparagus with Toasted Garlic and Parmesan.

... "Sunday Dinner. The one meal that I cherish the most. With all the food that James and I have had over the course of the week, I haven't cooked at home. I really wanted to be lazy today/tonight, and I asked James if he wanted to go out for dinner. He wanted to watch the new season of 'The Man in the High Castle' on Amazon Prime - so, I took this opportunity to head to the grocery stores alone. The word "PRIME" was dancing in my head ...

Herb-Crusted Prime Rib: Second Cut Standing Rib Roast (Bone 6 - Bone 9). EVOO. SnP. Thyme. Oregano. Rosemary.

Parsnip Purée: Parnsip. SnP. Cream. Thyme. Garlic. US Butter.

Pan-Roasted Asparagus with Toasted Garlic and Parmesan: OO. Garlic. US Butter. Asparagus. KSnP. Parmesan. Lemon.

James was so focused watching TV while I was cooking away in the kitchen. It's like him on Sundays to chill on the section and play video games and/or catch up on TV. For the first time since we've lived here in Chicago, I felt that we were 'home.' The funny thing is that 'Julie & Julia' was about to start on TV. I opted to serve him dinner on the sectional and join him. Like clockwork, Wally and Eva were right there wanting some. I chuckled. I gave them both a piece. I looked at James and said, 'Rate it!' ... he couldn't reply, he just continued scarfing it down. That's all I needed from him." /has my cold plate of food, but the photographs I took were on point
