I’m working on ideas for Mickelle’s baby shower and ran across this gem of an invitation.  No. Just NO.

Yoga, brunch, mani, massage, nap. So far, so good.

Seared filet, creamed spinach and duck fat potatoes. And I didn’t have to lift a finger. Living the dream on a Friday night in Manhattan.

I spent all summer looking for cage sandals that didn’t engulf my narrow foot and finally scored!  I’m in love.

I became the accidental recipient of some very fresh line-caught tuna via a work vendor. A simple spice rub, a quick sear and it became an incredibly delicious dinner.  
(also pictured: arugula and red onion salad, roasted sweet potatoes)

The perm, the tan, the sneer, the cans of Budweiser.  This pretty much sums up my childhood summers.

Last night Stacey made biscuits for nectarine and blueberry shortcake, and I whipped the cream.

We also had lamb and a tomato and corn salad, but the star of last night’s dinner was the cucumber and cherry salad with Vidalia onions, parsley, and lemon, based on one I had at Navy on Sullivan street a couple of weeks ago. Such an unexpectedly delicious pairing.

I can’t quit thinking about that cherry cucumber salad.  So amazing. 

I was in charge of appetizers at last night’s dinner. 
-green beans with green goddess
-crab canapés
-tomato bruschetta
-Old Bay and lemon shrimp
