sunday: a trail run with brett & two dogs, the usual household chores, finishing a book in the hammock, a glass of lemonade, and a really delicious lobster dinner on the front porch (!!!).
monday: my first day off with brett since the end of july. we went sailing with my parents, and it was another spectacular summer day. the most perfect breeze, the best of company, and a bold blue sky. ice cream sandwiches on the way home. a lovely walk with two old friends, and one of my favorite recipes for dinner. i made it for the first time last summer after hearing about it from jenna & kim. it came out even better this year. it's rich, but delicious and fresh and summery. i substituted half & half for part of the cream, spinach in place of arugula, and added shrimp and basil. go make it immediately.
