It was quiet this weekend. And warm. I love that. I didn't feel like lugging my camera around, so I didn't. Toying with the idea of Instagram and I tested it out a bit this weekend, but I'm a little resistant. I'll probably give in soon but I don't want it to replace my beloved camera.
My current favorite cookie is the ginger-date-molasses one from Tavern. It is intensely flavored and very chewy. If you happen to be in my neighborhood, I highly recommend stopping in to pick one up. I know everyone else swears by their chocolate chip cookies, but I'm not as big a fan.
D made popsicles and we've been eating them all week, even though the weather promptly switched back over to chilly once the weekend was over. I'll share the recipe tomorrow. They're insane.

We hit up the Gilt warehouse sale and I got my $5 admission worth in free (mediocre*) drinks and Kind bars that I smuggled out in my pockets. There was nothing worthwhile. I'm not a big fan of Gilt anyways.
I dropped by our local Heath to stare at the summer collection pieces a bit more and decided that really the shallow salad bowl and the dessert bowls would be the best choices, if we ever decide to pull the trigger. A word of warning - the glaze on the literally all the platters (I went through the whole stack) looked flawed to me. I asked about it and they said it was part of the character of the glaze, but I'm just not a huge fan of the effect. I would highly recommend checking them out before committing. I actually like to do this with all Heath purchases, because they are handmade and you might like one variation a little more than another. I'll sometimes exchange pieces if I get them home and realize they aren't quite right with what I already have. I know, picky. But when you pay $130 for a salad bowl, you better plan to love it to death and use it your entire life.
