After a few days of rain and clouds, I think everyone in Cville was out celebrating the GORGEOUS September weather tonight!!
I left the bakery and headed to the new house for a few appointments. Given my public life, we’re getting a killer security system in the new place. Don’t even try to tap on the window – it’s all covered. It’s a little expensive, but also something we should have gotten 2 houses ago and I don’t think we will regret the piece of mind.
More photos were requested, yes?
Living room mid-paint!!!
The gray wall that I love but will be painted over. The same color is in the dining room and we’re leaving that one.
Yum!! They tasted a bit bananay – was there banana in the recipe Kim!? Or was that my imagination…
At 5:30, Faith came over! And then we walked downtown. PERFECT Friday!
First stop was Market Street Wine Shop for a little wine tasting and brie cheese eating.
Then we went to the Pavilion and chilled and talked in the grass. It was so very relaxing!
Neither of us wanted a full glass of wine, so we decided to share. They were kind enough to split it for us – with heavy pours!
[Note the ball jars!!]
We decided to share 3 courses rather than get big entrees for us both.
We started with a beautiful heirloom tomato salad –
Followed by an AWESOME poached egg, pepper and corn ragu.
LOVE poached eggs!
We were given chilled watermelon soup for tasting!
And split this amazingly buttery tomato-topped local pork belly for our entrée.
I gave Matt 2/3 and took 1/3. This was so rich, but also so flavorful!
It was tough to say no to dessert, but we decided we were plenty full.
We went to wish our employee Rosemary a very happy birthday at a nearby restaurant –
And then Matt walked a mile back to the bakery to get his car and I biked home alone! Scary, but this night was so refreshing.
Someone was hosting a marshmallow campfire party and did not invite me!
