happy friday! are you looking forward to anything this weekend? i’m going to make pasta tonight for the fifth time since quarantine started. it has become my weekend ritual and i really enjoy it. and we’ll open a bottle of white wine and enjoy the fact that it doesn’t get dark until 8pm now. hard to feel the change of seasons but the longer days definitely feel nice. i hope you have something fun to do this weekend, even if it’s small like taking a bath with a candle lit.

i made this red lentil soup again this week. i’ve made it several times. it’s budget friendly and super easy. we’ve also made smash burgers three times recently as our favorite spot in LA, burgers never say die, has closed for now. i have a soft spot for american cheese and pickles.

i had never heard of the brand entireworld before this pandemic started and now i see lots of people popping up in their cute matching sweatsuits in fun colors. seems to be a work from home uniform.

my grandma made me a beautiful quilt that doesn’t get used enough. i’m thinking of having it turned into a jacket by this cool lady. i love scrolling her instagram and looking at all the quilts turned coats. feels like a cool way to utilize something that might just be sitting in your closet gathering dust.

do you have any must make recipes you want to share? cooking inspiration is running low around here so please send them my way. i started reading “The Splendid and the Vile” and i’m really enjoying it and recommend it if you’re looking for something to dig into.  – joanie

    Lately one of my favorites is to thinly slice a fennel bulb, thin slice a peeled green apple, and cut up one or two celery stalks. I usually chop up whatever herbs I have, almost always a few mint sprigs and Italian parsley. I mix a teaspoon of local honey and juice one lemon and mix it all together. The best quick snack!

    Oh zest the lemon and put that in too!

    I love this idea, such a healthy snack!

    Curried Lentil soup should be very tasty, i’v never tried it before.

    I LOVE this, thank you for sharing! My favorites are the colorful hanging aeriums and the super cute loft jars!
