Here are few photos from the past week and a bit!
I’ve fallen in love with our weekend routine. It involves waking up & getting coffee then heading to Fort Greene Park before 9 am (usually around 8-8:30) and letting Zoey run around with the other neighbourhood dogs. She’s actually the fastest dog in the whole park, and I’m not exaggerating. She is freaking speedy. It’s hilarious to watch - no one can keep up with her!
On Saturdays we also hit up the Farmer’s Market and get a few bits for our weekend meal, plus a bouquet of flowers. Last week we bought a bunch of house plants that we’re already murdering, so we’ll skip flowers until our poor Ficus comes back to life. Today we got some goat cheese that has garlic and chives in it, and it tastes so amazing.
Zoey’s discovered tennis balls in the past week, so that’s been great. It’s so wonderful to watch her come out of her shell every weekend! It’s also nice for us to meet some of the other dog people in the ‘hood.
Another new thing - we signed up for Quinciple, which is an awesome grocery delivery service. A bunch of people at work do it, so I decided to join in. So far, so good! We made two meals this week, plus a cocktail.
The first was zucchini noodles and fresh tomato sauce. Turns out that grating a tomato on the large holes of a cheese grater helps make an awesome fresh sauce! The cocktail was muddled strawberries, homemade lemongrass syrup and gin. Yum.
We also made a fish dish with this amazing soy sauce & shallot marinade, and some peppers.
Oh! AND! Floris got me a pasta maker for my birthday! We had our very first dinner guests in the new apartment last week, and made these really tasty raviolis from scratch. A really neat new toy.
The other photo up there is from the Pratt House on Clinton Ave - there’s a pretty cool curly old tree that I thought looked good enough to photograph.
I made my first Etsy Sale the other day! We’ve got a few copies of The Maple leftover, so decided to put them up in a new shop.
OK, I guess that’s a good update for now! We’re off to explore for the rest of the day/weekend.
(PS: Happy Birthday to my awesome Dad!)
