Summer, 2009, Mansfield, MA
This is pretty poor quality photograph, but the lackadaisical nature of the meal is conveyed. I believe this was a meal celebrating moving in together. Last summer before moving into our place in Somerville, Devin and I lived in his old apartment in Mansfield for one month. The suburbs provided a HUGE deck and yard, something we enjoyed immensely during those 30 days at the "Men's Warehouse." (Don't ask). There is nothing quite like dining al fresco with a crisp glass of champagne and good company. It is fun to think back on all the meals we have made together or for one another in this past year of living together. I look forward to many more :)
- Herbed goat cheese baked over toasted baguette slices drizzled with rosemary honey
- Pan-seared sea scallops with a lemon-wine reduction
- Simple lemon vinaigrette dressing over baby greens
- Veuve Clicquot to celebrate!
