We broke a record high today. It’s going to be one hot week this week! We are in danger of a serious drought. News about wildfires, prices of food going up, and farmers suffering from this weather are some of the results of this weather. I just hope everyone around has a good sense of conserving water.

Tonight, instead of having our dinner in the dining room, we decided to enjoy it  outside. We don’t this very often, but when we do, we kick off the shoes and just have a good time.


Today, I made some soba noodles, grilled some shrimp and asparagus with the different kinds of mushrooms – porcini (similar to portabello), straw mushrooms, enoki, and white mushrooms) topped with dijon mustard and lime juice.
