Scenes from the Weekend

Wednesday seems like the right time to bask in the glow of the previous weekend. This one was especially wonderful, since my parents were in town, and we got to spend some time with my little brother (AKA, hermano). The great food we ate was just one small part of the happy picture. Lemonade is just up the street from our place, but we had ever been there. Oh my, it is awesome. Here are our three lemonades: cucumber mint (I think), blueberry mint, and watermelon rosemary. The food was just as glorious: more vegetables and grains than you could shake a stick at!

And I would be remiss if I did not show you this. On Friday night our first stop was The Counter, which is a perennial favorite. My hermano ordered a ONE POUND burger, which, it turns, out, is three 1/3-lb. patties. I could not believe it when I saw it, but he actually ate 2/3 of it, and then took the extra patty home for leftovers. Impressive!

On Saturday we headed over to Venice, which is a totally charming town. We passed by tons of interesting shops, and I kind of fell in love with this place that had two windows full of gorgeous cake stands. Yes, cake stands.

The blue ones were glorious. I would like to have one. Or twelve!

And here is a shot of the beach at Venice. I will never tire of living near the ocean!
