started the day at the Forest Hill Farmers Market (actually it started at 6:30 am making gazpacho with my 2 1/2 year old- mostly from the garden) the market was abuzz with additional excitement over the Graziano vs Positive Vibe cookoff. it was hot, and with Raine and Rye in tow, I knew that time was of the essence. Grabbed some fresh celery from Victory Farms, some gnochhi from Cavanna, and chatted with some friends before being pulled away. Decided to join the Petty's at Black Sheep for breakfast. Tne kids were pretty awful and the meal was not as relaxing as it could have been. I was once again impressed by the Grillades & Grits- sauteed pork cutlets with brown gravy and a side of cheesy grits. I also shared some nutella slathered french toast with my boys, who were more interested in playing under the table than eating.
back home for yardwork and gardening and a dip in the pool. we were having some folks for dinner, so I prepped a remoulade sauce for a london broil that had been marinating all day. Prepped a variation on the traditional caprese, substituting onions and peaches for the usual tomatatoes.
had a lovely dinner that started outside, but we were chased in by some mosquitoes and 90 + heat pretty quickly. dinner was lovely- even with 6 kids under 5 running around. Syd made a great cobbler with peaches and bluberries from the market to finish the night. Sat on the front porch watching the kids chase lightning bugs until way past bedtimes.
