Home stuff makes us happy. Some recent acquisitions have put some big smiles on our faces. See?
|Mãe got these for us on her trip with Aunt Cila to Portugal. Obrigada!|
We picked this up on sale at our favorite supermarket. Gorgeous.
We also now have a kitchen scale. For accurate measurements!
We made chicken tagine, a Moroccan dish, with our preserved lemons. Surprisingly, lemons that you leave in pickling salt for months are really salty. Who knew?
Toby has become a master of Asian food, as seen in this beautifully plated pad thai.
Here I am devouring one of the best Italian meals we've ever made. We finally found a ratio of all-purpose flour and semolina that suits our tastes. This spaghetti came out heavenly. Also pictured is a focaccia that Toby made and chicken breasts stuffed with baby Swiss cheese, arugula and prosciutto.
Newsflash: Seattle gets sunny sometimes. I got excited and wore a sundress that ties at my neck and proceeded to stay out in the sun so long that I got a sunburn. Tan lines in Seattle. It's possible!
Our garden loves the sun. We've added a cherry tomato plant and a pepper plant.
|This little guy is going to be a tomato someday.|
|Another future tomato.|
|The dill plant has a ton of new blossoms.|
|Not the greatest photo, but you can see that the dill is almost as tall as the porch railing.|
