Sunny, Relaxing, Long Weekend

The sun is finally shining in the Bay Area! It’s been a cold (for the season) and wet April and May. In fact, last week a meteorologist said that this is likely to be the coldest and wettest April/May in the Bay Area in recorded history. I’m not sure if the last few days changed that…

Luckily, the weather made up for it over the weekend. It was pleasantly warm but not too hot. Actually, it was pretty much perfect. And we took full advantage of the great weather and the extra day off.
We spent time at the garden theme park, and the toddler had a blast.

I got some raw milk, butter, and cheese.

We had a simple lunch, using the cheese and butter with a new Trader Joe’s find.

The rolls are in the frozen section, and we love them. You can thaw them or warm them in the oven for about 12 minutes.

We had mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil, the seeded rolls, a little raw butter, raw cheese, and radishes from the Farmers’ Market. So simple, yet so good… :-)

We also made a trip to the nursery and picked up some plants.

The toddler can’t wait to help me plant the plants…

Question: What was the highlight of your weekend?
Be well,
