I had a lovely weekend — the weather was warm and sunny and I did a lot of enjoyable things. Here are some highlights:
Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider, a local cider company, recently opened a taproom a few blocks away from our house. How convenient, right? We walked there Saturday before dinner and shared this sampler platter. All of their ciders are dry, which is right up my alley. I liked most of these with the exception of the second from the left. It was an heirloom cider that tasted smokey and a little too odd for my palate. I ended up ordering a glass of the Newtown Pippin, the last glass on the right. It was crisp, light and refreshing, especially on a hot day. The seasonal hibiscus (red one) was really nice too.
My glass of the Newtown Pippin. Jesse drank two ciders in the time it took me to finish this. I really liked it, but when I drink, I get chatty and full of ideas/inspiration, so it takes me longer. I am also good at savoring my drinks (not to the point where it becomes warm though…ick).
Went to the farmer’s market and bought fresh eggs from this man. (Taken on iPhone).
I bought some fresh boysenberries from this vendor too. (Taken on iPhone).
Pretty flowers at the farmer’s market. They’re very tempting to buy, but one of our cats loves to eat them. We end up having to hide the flowers, so it’s kinda pointless. (Taken on iPhone).
Washing my car (my dear grandma’s car) at home in the driveway, the real way.
Can you tell I used to be a dancer? What’s funny, is that I didn’t even know I was doing this!
All shiny and fresh. Grandma would be so happy.
Made this tasty curry for Sunday dinner — recipe to come soon!
