It was a short work week due to Independence Day and a few extra days of PTO! Lily Thomas was my office manager this week and supervised everything. On Monday, my good friend, Andrea met me for lunch! She biked over from her mom’s boat in Ballard. Last night, Mr. F made a really delicious summer dinner, with fresh cantaloupe, lettuce and zucchini from our produce bin and cherry tomatoes from our garden. Mr. F also grilled pineapple and pork for sandwiches. Tonight, we met Andrea at the Walrus & Carpenter for Happy Hour! We dined on Washington oysters, steak tartare, and grilled asparagus. This summer back in Seattle has certainly rivaled our summers in Chicago! It’s been amazingly warm but still pleasant. We’ve also been checking out all our favorite and finding new foodie places!
