Vanessa started a new job yesterday. It appears she’s going to work on some projects that have her really excited.
The dogs spent all weekend at the Barkalounge. The cats could not have been happier about it. It also gave us some much needed time to rest, be together, and gear up for the coming week– Vanessa to her brand new job and me back to mine.
Last night, Vanessa and I made these for dinner. They were simply delicious. I made a vegetarian variation with shitake mushrooms on Sunday that were good, too, but I wanted to try again to see if we could make the rolls neater and get them to come out a little crisper. Last night’s, baked on the pizza stone, were near perfect. I made a super simple dipping sauce with Tamari soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and Thai chili paste to go with them.
Neighborhood block party tonight if it doesn’t rain.
Friday night we’re going to dinner and Symphony on the Prairie, courtesy of Vanessa’s new employer, and the ISO is going to be featuring the hits of Louis Armstrong!
It’s good to have some social events on the calendar. I want to put this summer behind us. Indiana is a beautiful place to live in the fall, and I’m looking forward to enjoying lots of hiking, apple orchard time, and bonfires.
