Grilled Fish

Maybe I don't know what I'm doing, since this was my first attempt at using these little boards, but I don't get why this is so popular... it was tasty, but nothing to write home about.

I finally got around to making these out of vintage fabric I found at a local thrift shop.

Murray's Cheese Shop

I am currently reading and enjoying Steve Martin's Object of Beauty. Through Martin's story, NYC is palpable and I sometimes forget I'm not there...
I felt like reminiscing and just came across this photo of goodies from Murray's Cheese Shop. We brought these delicious cheeses and salami back with us from our last trip.

Arugula Seed Pods

Arugula has taken over my garden and I have a hard time pulling them since the bees love the flowers.

grilled organic chicken brats, corn, potato salad, and a green salad from my garden with....

pretty edible flowers (a luxurious gift) and the first few carrots and snap peas

dessert was C's famous creation -- the Insomniac Milkshake
amazing stuff with espresso, coffee ice cream and oreos
it kept us awake for a late night board game
(if you'd like to try it, I believe the Bean Cycle in Fort Collins still makes it, although it may not be the exact original recipe!)

thanks for the photos, Factory
