Forts and Adventures

Did a lot of fun things this weekend.

+Made a fort in my living room. Watched Whale Rider in it and ate late-night snacks. Found Lou loving the fort the next morning.

+Ate delicious, cheap Mexican food at La Superior in good company and drank homemade lemonade cocktails.
+Peeped the latest scary alien movie. It was awesome!
+Raided the USQ Greenmarket. Picked up bi-color sweet corn, squash blossoms, heirloom tomatoes, and flowers among other things.
+Cooked a 4-course meal for my friend David's birthday. Made the following: 1) Homemade Minted Lemonade and Artichoke-Olive Crostini. 2)Fried Ricotta-Stuffed Squash Blossoms, Fresh Corn Salad, and Roasted Beets. 3) Pan-Roasted Brick Chicken (under a brick stolen off the street by my dutiful boyfriend!) alongside Frites and Heirloom Tomato Salad. 4) Marlow & Sons' Chocolate Caramel Tart with Sea Salt.

+Played Bananagrams and drinking games.
+Woke up bright & early for breakfast in Rockville Center
+Swam in the ocean (and peed in it, too)
+Went to a roadside seafood shack, watched live lobsters being gutted
+Tried my first lobster!
+Slept so well in the Hampty Hamps.
