What a nice weekend it has been!

This weekend sort of breaks niceness records. Saturday we started out early and went to breakfast at Bob's at the marina, then we ran around and did our grocery shopping. The difference this day was that we were trying to find some tamarind paste for a Thai dish we were having. We finally found some at a Chinese grocery store - and a whole lot more. The score for me was pea vines! I finally found a store that carries them. TBG found magasteen, which thrilled him and we got a mess of other things as well. As we were checking out, the owner's wife tossed in a back of long beans because, "We needed them."

We were doing a recipe of beef with pearl onions. The tamarind paste was part of a marinade. It turned out to be a very tasty dish and I tossed in a handful of pea vines for color and served it with pan fried noodles. It was very tasty.

I also picked up two pounds of strawberries and a small watermelon and made agua fresca this morning (also added some mandarin oranges, basil, and a Meyer lemon. It's very tasty and quite refreshing. We had a big glass of it after coming back from Frye's and IKEA. We stop at Vic's for lunch and our Sacramento friends joined us. Afterwards, we went back to their place to see all the improvements that they have made to their back lawn. Their garden is incredible! I can't even imagine how much work it takes.

There has been time with friends, some great food and plenty of lazy times/naps/cat-towing in between.

Here's hoping that everyone else is have/had a great weekend!
