It’s amazing what one week can do. After taking one week off, we’re feeling inspired and we’re ready to start blogging again. Expect a few more personal posts, more joint posts from Joanna and I, more interviews, more recipes…. For today’s post, it seemed only fitting, to do our first post back with my new monthly series: In Season. Things that I’m doing, eating, looking forward to, all inspired by the current season.
I think with loving the warmer weather that Spring is bringing, I’m craving everything green. We had the most amazing pea risotto last week with mint and scallops, it was the perfect seasonal dish. We’re sharing it in our first joint point on Thursday.
I’m on the hunt for a backup pair of sunglasses, which sounds silly, but my current ones are pretty scratched up and I would hate to be without sunglasses, it’s like the feeling you have when you forget your cellphone at home. I’m feeling inspired by Elise’s (from Pennyweight) pair and am loving Warby Parker’s selection
This summer will be my first time going camping, we’re headed to Maine to catch a lobster boat race. I would love to get this backpack for Chris before we go. I know he was eyeing it as we were looking for briefcases/attaches/messenger bags for guys, which is surprisingly hard to find nice and affordable ones. Recommendations?
French 75 my new favorite drink. Light and refreshing (and strong), it’s the perfect match for this Spring weather. French 75′s are usually a mix of gin, lemon juice, sugar and sparkling wine. Justine’s (if you haven’t been already, definitely go already) makes the perfect one and Esquire also has a recipe for the ‘Perfect French 75′. I’ll have to try and compare.
Even though it’s only April, I’ve already had my first trip to the beach and my first seafood feast. We walked the beach with no shoes but definitely were bundled up. We watched people surf and paddle board, then headed to Aunt Carrie’s in Narragansett to feast on clam chowder and clam cakes. There has to be a way to balance the upcoming bathing suit season with eating as much fried seafood as possible? Right? Delicious.
