Got your attention, right?
So, last we spoke, I had had a SHIT-TASTIC day DNF-ing the Brooklyn Half.
Luckily the rest of my weekend was relaxing and fun: Saturday afternoon, I got my highlights done and Saturday evening I met friends at Cobble Hill Immersion, basically a pub crawl organized by Brooklyn Brewery.
Yesterday, my friends and I had a lovely little Jane Austen day.
It came up recently that we were all reading the same book, Eligible, a “modern re-telling” of Pride and Prejudice. To be honest, I haven’t touched P&P since high school, so I could use a refresher and will probably read it next! I really enjoy Curtis Sittenfeld’s writing style and wry observations.
We followed it by brunch chez moi since the theater was close to my apartment.
I made a simple frittata with kale and cherry tomatoes, and served it with bacon, fruit and gluten-free muffins I bought at Trader Joe’s for a g-free friend. (In this group of friends, every single one of us has an allergy or intolerance. I thought I’d done so well but they were made with almond meal, and Lacey is allergic to tree nuts. I tried…)
Thank god it’s strawberry season again!!!
It’s always Bailey season.
And it’s finally rosé season again. The Lila wine people sent me a bunch of these little cans of wine, and we tried them out with our brunch. 10/10 would wine again. In fact, I can’t wait to bring these little guys to the beach this summer. (I hear they could be great to sneak into the movies, too. You know, theoretically.)
(Also: friends tolerate your blog pics; best friends stage them for you without you even asking.)
They also help you take totally casual, non-posed cooking pictures.
Do you book club? What have you read lately?
