Outdoor fireplace?

I know Peter would really like a fire pit in our backyard... so we've been looking at ideas and trying to picture the perfect fire pit to create. Saw this at Lowe's - here's an idea for you husband!

Zucchini Blossoms

I love Wegmans!! After searching high and low for them at local farmer's markets - I found them at Wegmans. Pete and I have been dreaming of zucchini blossoms and I so wanted to make them at home so we can just pic out on them.


Aren't they beautiful to look at...

and good to eat too after I stuff them with ricotta and fresh herbs!

I have a great recipe for them which I posted sometime last year - click on Zucchini Blossom for the recipe. Enjoy!!

Alicia's Bachelorette Weekend

Thanks to Jess for organizing such a fun bachelorette for Alicia! We camped over at Keuka State Park, had a limo picked all of us girls up from our campsite (all other campers had their eyes on us lot), lots of tastings and vino shopping at the Keuka Lake wineries, an amazing dinner at Esperanza Mansion and back to camp with our attempt to light somewhat wet firewood for smores!

Sharon's quick stop!

Peter and Chee Ming drove to Indianapolis over the weekend to help Sharon move apartment to a friend's house and drove her back to Buffalo. She literally had less than 48 hours with us before she departed for Poland to join up with my parents on their European holiday. Here are pictures from dinner with the rest of the crew and at home.
