Cornbread, Puppies and PowerMate
Yesterday I made some yummy cornbread to eat with the chili we had made earlier in the week. It was tasty and not too sweet. We used this recipe.
The pups and I had some quality snuggle time yesterday. With both the roomie and I at work for most of the day, I think both pups have been missing their humans. Isn’t Reese’s adorable?
Over the last few weeks I have noticed that I run my Iphone battery down pretty quickly. Between Instagram, blog things and emails, I have found that I usually need a mid-day charge. I just ordered this little guy to help me out when I don’t always have easy access to an outlet. And it’s nautical, how fitting!
What apps do you use (and love!) on your phone? Any favorites that you want to suggest I look at? Happy Friday!
Coffee, Desserts and a Father-Daughter Cooking Session
This past weekend I was invited to a friend’s birthday dinner at a wine bar in Palo Alto called Gravity. I had some free time and grabbed a coffee before meeting up with the dinner party. Sitting in the sunshine I enjoyed a calm moment with my book. It was lovely.
Abby was the perfect birthday girl, and we indulged in plenty of yummy food! The restuarant Gravity was new to me so we ordered a little bit of everything.
Our desserts were unbelievably good. I had the strawberry shortcake, Abby ordered a peach pastry with vanilla ice cream and Rita got a chocolate lava cake.
When I got back to the apartment the pups were snuggling despite the lingering heat.
Today my father and I spent the whole day in the kitchen creating delicious things to eat. We tackled an impressive list: chili, tortilla lasagna, banana walnut bread, and peppermint-chocolate ice cream. A long day, but so worth it!
There are no photos of the ice cream. So sad, because it really was delicious. Next time!
