My mother stayed at our house as our pet nanny while we were on our honeymoon. My dad came to pick her up and they left yesterday so now the 3 week wedding extravaganza is over and we have to stop eating a bunch of sugary sugars. For the last hurrah we had lunch at Great Sage in Maryland.
We both had the pot pie, which was mashed potatoes, with vegetables and peppery gravy on top, and then a flakey flax dough lid.
Tiramisu for dessert!
