Family nap time was a short success! We woke up after 30 minutes feeling much refreshed. Then finished the nursery. Then had a snack!
Cottage cheese (I need to have this for a snack more!) with blackberries and graham cracker –
At 6 we picked up Seamane and Rob and headed over to our friends Alice and Al’s for dinner.
Miss Elinor was the hostess!
Alice had this gourmet cheese spread set up when we arrived. This was one impressive line up of delicious cheese!!
Everything from goat gouda to brie! We had a happy cocktail hour tasting them all.
And by cocktail hour I mean a mocktail made from seltzer and peach lemonade! (Santa Cruz brand). Delicious! Beer for the big kids.
For dinner we dined on pasta topped with a raw bruschetta-like mix of fresh local tomatoes, mozzarella, garlic, olive oil and herbs. Such a clever way to serve a tomato sauce!
Plus a big ole salad. Ever since our garden greens bolted, I have been missing salads. Need to stock up on greens again. but it’s hard to get back into buying them after eating them for free for months!
Super delicious plate of summertime –
There was also bread (Great Harvest Potato Sourdough + Cheddar Garlic) but I passed tonight.
After helping Alice put Elinor to bed and watching some quality Olympics on their giant projector screen, we dug into dessert –
Seamane made Jessica’s no-bake coconut cream [goat cheese] cheesecakes and they were out-of-this-world good!!!! Maybe the best cheesecake I’ve ever had!? Brilliant, Jessica!
Home on the range and so ready for a lazy Sunday morning ahead!
