Breakfast, Cookies, Burgers, Streak

We haven't been posting much lately, so this post will be a catch-up on some things from the past few weeks. First, Dylan and I have been eating breakfast together before work lately. This is something that can be hard to coordinate with the morning rush, but we've been trying to carve out the time because it's nice to sit together for a few minutes before the day starts. We've been getting awesome pink grapefruit at the farmers market for the past few weeks. Usually we'll have grapefruit with toast and melted cheddar or toast and fried egg and a cup of green tea. Here is what it looks like:

We are still hitting the farmers market with all our usual passion on Sundays. Even when Dylan has to work (most weekends these days) we still make sure to fit it in first. Our friend, Carter, works the peach stand and he is always giving us discounts or freebies on peaches, nectarines, pluots, grapes and other goodies. After a couple weeks of this special treatment, we started wanting to do something to repay him, so we woke up early and baked a large batch of killer oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, giving some to Carter when we stopped by his stand. He seemed to enjoy that!

We've also been doing some nice summer relaxing with friends. Tom (my roommate from college) came over last weekend for burgers, salad and grilled corn on the cob, enjoyed on our back deck. I guess summer is ending soon...but not really in San Diego! Here are some of our bbq preparations (note the white leaf dishes that Chelsea gave us - we love them and use them all the time - this time for individual portions of baked beans):

And finally, Streak has just been doing her usual thing. She is a wonderful pet and brings us little bits of happiness and laughs every single day. She's been doing that for me since I could count my age on two hands and it's so fun to be able to share her antics with someone I love (Dylan!):
