Fun afternoon and dinner!!!
Look what arrived!! In love with the Midori green color. I can’t believe my baby will sit in this!
Also on the baby front – Baby Central in progress. I’ve revamped this corner of the basement so it’s ready to receive toys, diapers, mom stuff and baby for playing, nursing and napping! My goal these past few weeks was to make the basement more inviting (and desirable to spend hours in) and I’m getting there. More details soon!
When Matt came home, we went on a walk downtown to run some errands and pay a visit to Market Street Wine Shop to buy a chardonnay for a wine tasting party we’re attending on Saturday. [Yes, this is making me totally sad that I can’t partake – BUT only 6ish weeks to go!!!]
Even if I can’t drink it, it’s still really fun to think about wine, talk about wine and participate in the purchasing.
I spotted two vineyards that brought back wonderful pre-baby memories!
We walked around downtown and paid Karen a visit in her new house!! By the time we got home, we were dripping in sweat.
But at least a cold dinner was ready to eat!
Got too many tomatoes and cucumbers this summer? Make gazpacho!!
I used our tried and true classic recipe (with just a few modifications since we didn’t have roasted red peppers or Worcestershire and left out the corn). Tasty though!! Makes 4 big bowls, so we have leftovers.
Speaking of bowls, new from Pier 1!! I haven’t bought a new bowl in a long time, and these colors spoke to me.
On the side we enjoyed a new recipe Matt is testing at the bakery. We have total free reign to determine any and all of our recipes (and pretty much any business decision we feel like…) so he developed this multigrain sourdough. It’s 50% whole grain with lots of seeds and crunch inside. I thought it was quite good, but he thought the rye flour component was too intense. The palate of a baker
Loved the sesame seeds on the outside!
We just finished the last of the first season’s Portlandia episodes. LOVE that show and I need to find season 2!
Have a lovely hot or cold evening : )
