summer lunches.

Lazy summer lunches on the porch are the best. I could spend two hours. It’s all about fresh veggies and fruit, and pasta salad, of course.

I made this pasta salad up on the fly (easiest thing to cook, ever) and made a really tasty dijon champagne vinegar dressing for it. What other combinations should I try?

grilled pizza.

The best way to enjoy homemade za. No reason to get that kitchen and house heated up and on blast in summer, so why not use the grill to the same end?

All you need is a pizza stone set on top the normal grill and some patience getting it heated up. Then boom: perfect pizza every time.

Happy summer.

striped tosh.

It was chilly enough here in Boston today to wear my Ladies Striped Raglan sweater designed by Jane Richmond. You may remember I finished it last summer–but I believe this is only the second time I’ve worn it.

The espadrilles shocking pink is really perfect for spring and summer and is making me want to knit another since the fit is downright perfect. I’m imagining endless possibilities–colors, stripes, solids, etc.

Come next week, when my large move is complete, I can happily return to the making and knitting.
