Finally made it to Intelligentsia in Venice. We’re a little slow on the uptake. It’s so modern and clean and you get your own barista who makes only your drinks when you order. And their pastries are not only edible, they’re quite delicious.
Other than that, we laid low. Found these late season peaches at the market, which were pretty tasty though different from their juicy summer brothers.
I napped and read on the couch quite a bit and then puttered around in the kitchen on Sunday afternoon. I find Sundays to be good days to do fussy things like making stock and segmenting oranges and seeding pomegranates. Things you just don’t want to tackle come dinner time during the week. And it made the house feel so cozy and fall-like. And then made me incredibly sad that we don’t have a fireplace or dining room. A fireplace and dining room would certainly make all of our troubles disappear.
Stock for a few soups to try this week (so prepared!)
And salad parts for dinner at our neighbors’ house on Sunday evening. (Hi Ruth and David!) Isn’t that so communal and cute? We love our ‘hood.
Now if it would only rain. The clouds have been looming, but I’m afraid they might blow over. Please rain please rain please rain.
