impromptu picnic

 
One of the great features of the new apartment is that we have the back apartment next to the yard. To shady for growing things, but still a yard out the window. I had dreams of hosting a welcoming party in the yard, perhaps with some grilling, but that time is quickly coming to a close and no party has been planned. Instead, I planned an impromptu picnic that I rolled outside using the bar cart I found in Berkeley two years ago and Partner-in-Crime kept hostage until I moved out here. Dinner was supposed to be followed by finally painting a telephone table to be a bedside table, but alas, fall is here and it became dark early. I'm glad we took the chance to dine outside while the weather allowed.



[Used a half a box of pasta, all we had left, plus lemon, olive oil, parm and frozen peas]

A great date night out of the few remaining items in the fridge. Tonight I have another great date night, this one with my friend Caroline-- Design Sponge's Book Signing at Anthropologie! Stay tuned for a report back.

True, a slice or two of salami perhaps. And certainty a glass of wine. But carbs? Gracie shudders.
