The weather this week has been incredibly beautiful. It’s been sunny with blue skies and in the mid-70s. It’s absolutely perfect. So much so that staying at work has taken remarkable willpower and dedication. All I want to do is take long, long walks in the afternoon. Such was the call of the outdoors on me this evening that I decided to dine alfresco on my deck to enjoy the early fall weather.
I hauled out my little table and a chair, listened to Pandora on my ipad, and enjoyed the breeze and the company of flowers and trees. Oh, and the company of my little frog friend – he was out on the lillypads getting some sun. And on a side note, there are actually two frogs!!! Hip Hip Horray! I saw a second one out today. It was a lovely dinner.
I made a “grown up” grilled cheese sandwich that I had seen on the internet. It’s made with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, avocados, and pesto. For the first time, I grilled the sandwich in olive oil instead of using butter. I don’t know why, but it had never occurred to me to use olive oil. It was so much better! The flavor perfectly complemented the cheese and veggies and olive oil is a much healthier alternative. No more butter on grilled cheese from now on. I hope you are enjoying the first days of fall and getting lots of fresh air and sunshine, wherever you are.
Blessings to you
