An anniversary dinner. At home. Because it's been far too long since I was able to be in my kitchen for fun, with wine and music and a fridge full of ingredients. Note Jeff's face in the second photo. That is a first taste face. There was caramelized chicken with mushrooms sauteed in butter and white wine and herbs from the balcony. There was garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. And after a nap there was the best strawberry shortcake (mother's recipe), with fresh whipped cream with a cuppa night coffee. Over the weekend there was a date to see Casablanca in a theater downtown prefaced by coconut ice cream.

This past month I have been schooling furiously. I took a ceramics class and fell in love and I took a college algebra class and am happy to say I never have to take a math class again. I am patiently awaiting my grades. It is good to be back to regular life. Happy summertime!
