What a difference a weekend makes. There is something just incredible about staying home while most everyone else is traveling. We had a lovely weekend filled with the bike rides, the beach, puppy time, cooking, and crafting. So much fun that I want a do-over!
First thing's first. For anyone who may stumble upon this, you have to check out the Ventura Meat Company in Ventura, CA. We've been a couple times now, including this weekend when we picked up some rib eye and some bacon - both of which were the best I've had. Serious. Like a heart attack. Which I'll probably have because I consumed both this weekend.
Next up, we celebrated a friend's 40th. I made her a bit of a gag gift (a serious gift with the root being a joke) of a black and white gingham apron. Rush wanted to make her a loaf of bread, so I sewed up a matching bag for the bread...thanks to Say Yes to Hoboken for the tutorial!
