Weekend Cooking

During the work week, I cook our dinners from Blue Apron and Plated.  It's easy, it's fast and it's tasty.  On the weekends, I do my own thing.  Saturday we went to a Barbera (wine) festival in the neighboring county of Amador.  There were 80 wineries there, from all over California.  There was food.  There was hardly any shade.  There were a lot of people scrunched into any spare inch of shade.  It was 95.  And miserable.  I was sweating as we walked around and feeling a bit queasy.  Needless to say, we didn't eat anything.  I managed to snag a seat on a straw bale half way under an umbrella and sat there, miserable, while Brett checked out the remaining wineries.

By the time we got home, we were toast.  It was all we could do to get the chores done.  I had a bowl of cereal with cold, cold milk for dinner.

Today, was better.  We had a good ride on the horses in the early morning, ran some errands, and then hibernated in the house.  It was another scorcher.  While we were out, we picked up green beans at the farmers market, peaches (a bruised bag for next to nothing) and blackberries.  We found some Copper River salmon at the market.  Dinner was good.

The peach and blackberry cobbler wasn't bad either.
