|I got the idea from a rabbit trail that began with checking out "Cherry Bounce" at The Runaway Spoon (another recipe I plan on trying) which led me to other boozy fruit recipes and then eventually to David Lebovitz and the simple recipe for strawberry vodka --- just the choicest fruit, a decent vodka and a week of your time. I'll let you know how it tastes.|
Saturday, Amy and I dropped Nagisa off in the city; she's headed for a month long summer camp. And I was headed for freedom! She's a honey of a girl, don't get me wrong. But sometimes Mama doesn't want to feed the babies on time; sometimes Mama just wants tea and toast for supper; or sometimes Mama wants to walk naked from the bathroom to her bedroom, etc. etc.
After we dropped Nagisa off, we went to several thrift stores Sally Ann had 50% off selected items; and of course, I had a 30% off coupon for Value Village. Even more fun, we visited the Asian grocer for Japanese and Korean supplies. Then we found this little gem: Cafe Aroma Latino and stopped in for lunch.
The thing I most liked about Cafe Aroma (besides the food) was that you could order one of each thing: the portions were small and the prices were as well.
I'm looking forward to my month of relative freedom. Yesterday after work, Amy greeted me with an amazing super supper salad and yummy healthy cookies made from oats, almond meal, chocolate ships and coconut. Don't you love it when someone else does the cooking.
Later in the week, I'll show you my thrift store finds.
What delicious items have been on your table lately?
