Since it is almost always true that pictures say it better than words, here’s a recap of the holiday weekend highlights in photo form. As you’ll see, it was a fantastic trip, with some of the best weather in recent memory. I think it’s safe to say that I’m in love with summer. Enjoy!
And the best way to wrap up a wonderful mini-vacation? A simple Italian dinner, complete with a glass of Rioja and a no-cook “salsa crudo” for pasta, inspired by this Summer Garden Pasta recipe from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten.
Since today was another sunny, hot, cloudless day in NY, keeping the oven off was definitely a plus. Welcome to July!
PS: Yep, I know – almost no knitting pictures from this weekend. But there was knitting, honest! I’ll be good and show more next time 🙂
