It’s not clear whether it’s spring or summer. It was so hot today that it definitely felt like summer but there are still no mosquitos so I guess it’s spring. The weekend, as always, was fun but too short. I have a full week at work ahead of me and as soon as the sun set today my mind became unable to relax and focus on anything else.
Yesterday we had a nice cookout with our neighbors which is alternately referred to by different people as impromptu bbq or stone soup cookout. The kind that comes together with whatever you’ve got around (plus chicken wings if you can convince your husband to go out and get them for you). When the meat was off the grill Ben put on some pineapple spears. I think that’s going to be my go to summer dessert grilled pineapple and ice cream or sorbet. I’d forgotten how much I like raspberry sorbet. It’s delicious. Oh, and molten chocolate cake but only if somebody else makes it for me. Read the rest of this entry »

Cheers! I accidentally titled my post Cheers last night even though I didn’t end up writing anything at all that pertained to the word.

I stopped into Tiny Toes, an extra-cute baby children’s boutique. The kind where you can get into a lot of trouble. Then I stopped into Cafe Savona for a sandwich and, this is where I get to the point, I picked up some frozen pizza Read the rest of this entry »

Sundays are for pancakes. Heart shaped pancakes made from free sample heart-shaped pancake molds from Williams-Sonoma. I’ve been moving them around for years even though I could never fathom a time when I’d take the time to make someone a pancake shaped like something other than a circle. But the day did come. I made heart pancakes for my girl and she loved it. I think I’ll always make her pancakes hearts from now on.

So, here it is! A brand new look for me. I like it, don’t you? It’s going to take me a while to learn my way around here because Ben updated WordPress too but so far so good. A big thanks to Rachel Stuart for the hard work and patience. PLUS, the next tab I add up there will hopefully be for my shop! I’m really excited about that too and relatively confident that I’m overextending myself but I’ll give it a shot.
