Getting this Chicago trip started…wisely.
This summer we started making fresh strawberry daiquiris on Sunday afternoons.
They’re surprisingly delicious and you can’t beat fresh strawberries. We tried recapture a little bit of summer yesterday, and it was close.
It’s a simple recipe: 2 parts rum, 1 part lime juice, 3/4 part simple syrup. I blend it together with a small handful of ice (we’re not making slushies), and pour it over a glass of ice.
It was delicious.
Stole away to Nelson County, Va. with some of the tennis guys this weekend. We had one back over the summer, too, and it’s starting to feel like it could be a quarterly thing. That’s about as much of it as I can take.
We stayed up on the mountain at Wintergreen, but lucked into nice weather and played some tennis in the valley. Otherwise, it was eating and drinking. It’s a lovely place this time of year.
Tacos and some cold ones on a dreary Saturday.
Weird that taco day would be on a Monday, but I’m not one to fight a chance to hit up El Cap.
Fully vaccinated and dining responsibly. This weekend we hit Mekong, a family favorite, and I got busy on a big bowl of phở and a couple of cold ones.
Creeping closer to normalcy.
