In an effort to squeeze every last little moment out of Summer. This last weekend was movie night!
It was equipped with a plethora of dogs, hot dogs, popcorn and candy.
The Goonies was the feature of the evening.
I scoured Craiglist and found an amazing 13′ blow up movie screen by Airblown that’s awesome. I got a great little projector off of Amazon by a company called Corprit. It wireless and connects itself automatically to my Wifi. How great is that? So, I just plug in my speaker and my Roku and that’s it, good to go!
I spread some rugs, pillows and beanbag chairs.
When you dress your backyard with hanging lights, it makes it magical.
My mom surprised with homemade salsa! Man o man, I missed it. It was one of the things when they had a business, everyone loved. It’s special. And, versitile. Tonight was Chicken Tortilla Soup. I’m thinking Burrito en Salsas tomorrow.
What’s the dish you loved growing up the most?
There is nothing like a glorious day a a farmers market, is there?
I don’t think so. I found some surprisingly good things to spite our inglorious Summer her in the Northwest this year!
It’s almost time to can somethings before they’re gone!
My little succulents are in bloom! Aren’t they charming? The rest seemed to have faded out already but, these continue on! 🌺🌺🌺
A good friend let me know that once a year they make it a point to sit down and a big batch of tamales to freeze and eat through the coming months.
I was definitely excited when she extended the offer to let me in on sharing the haul. Oh, and part of the work load.
I have to say the friends did all the hard stuff in pre-preparation making the meats, soaking husks and roasting peppers.
It really is glorious to see it all laid out and ready for assembly.
We began roughly a bit after noon and a delicious homemade chorizo/ sweet potato hash with egg breakfast. Accompanied with Pepinos*, from the Homemade cookbook.
The first time sitting down and doing this was 9 hours straight of sweaty work but, definitely worth it. They’re delicious…
A book on Modern Wallpaper for reading, organic berries and matcha tea this morning…
Tucked next to the exciting spot, Stateside, is a hidden little gem tucked in a spot you can easily miss along Pike in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Neighborhood.
Think Miami/70s and Art Deco, with outstanding food from the shared Stateside kitchen and fancy specialty cocktails all the while listening to some disco. Go to get away, in a dark corner and get your groove on soon!
