Three Month Update – 30 by 30
Today I’m three months into my 30 by 30.
Hubby and I were able to catch the last movie of the season on the halfshell. It was a beautiful August evening and we walked the 4 miles from our place to the halfshell. We packed a picnic dinner and brought a blanket. It was a great date night and we both enjoyed the movie Up, which we had never seen. I can’t wait to go again next summer and to take my nephew B too!
I also had a chance to cook with some new ingredients this month. The first new ingredient I tried was fresh figs. I made homemade fig newtons and this crostini with goat cheese, caramelized onions, and a fig reduction. I also made this massaged kale salad. I will definitely be using these ingredients more often from here on out!
