Weekend Eats (and Drinks)

Old Fashioned

The end of a long week. I needed comfort food. And I’m enjoying the leftovers for lunch today.

Dinner:  August 14, 2009

Folded tacos, not rolled. I was feeling lazy.

I also spaced on doing a proper “Market Haul” photo, but I was a little distracted. We were celebrating Kirby’s first birthday, after all. Priorities.

Saturday lunch

(Yes, he got a little tuna juice. And celery. And parsley and fennel, too.)

smoky pork burgers

Dinner:  August 15, 2009

The birthday boy tried valiantly to get his little paws on one of these, but even I have to draw the line somewhere. (He did get some canned food at the end of the night, in lieu of birthday cake.)

Sunday brunch at home

I had all sorts of kitchen projects lined up for Sunday, but it was hot as hades here (and elsewhere, I hear), so little materialized.


It was a good day to sit in front of the air conditioner with some reading material and a wind down the evening with a cold drink while waiting for the season 3 premiere of Mad Men to start. Which is just what we did.

Dinner:  August 16, 2009

With a quick break for pasta, first.

  1. Haha… I made an emergency cocktail-supply run at ten to nine last night. It seemed wrong to drink beer while watching Mad Men. Champagne? Yes. Cocktails? Absolutely. Fancy-schmancy microbrew from California? Not so much.

    Gorgeous snaps as usual.

    Laura Grace – yeah, you need something with a little kick to it when watching that show. 😀

    Sean – Thanks!

    Marie – Thank you, m’dear 🙂

    Mary – I’ll give him some scritches for you!

  3. I just stumbled onto your blog via 66 square feet. I love it, especially what you’ve written in your “recipes” tab. I’m trying to cook a bit more by intuition these days… And my Henry looks a lot like birthday boy Kirby. I’ll be checking back often.
