into the burbs…
Metro’d out to Clarendon to meet up with James and tool around a bit. Despite the heat I just had to get out of the house, stir craziness was catching up with me. We hit Silver Diner, walked around bit, hung out for a while, had dinner at Spider Kelly’s and hit Boccato Gelato for dessert.
On our walk we also caught sight of some people from our past that we aren’t in touch with anymore. James mentioned that he and a friend had actually retconned someone from their pasts. I like the idea of that when the need arises. Otherwise sometimes it just happens that, for whatever reason, someone is no longer a part your life. In my case, I can think of an ex or two that I wouldn’t mind retconning. 😀
I’m becoming less wary of heading out to the metro-accessible burbs and finding that it’s quite fun. Unfortunately though since I haven’t had the desire to shop at all, it’s hard to find much else to do aside from eating and drinking, but we manage.
Speaking of drinking, this weekend saw the making of my Mojito Mint Iced Tea:
- 1 pitcher of sweet mint iced tea (for 3 qts, I used ¾ cup sugar)
- lime juice (fresh or bottled)
Fill a tall glass with ice, add a shot of rum, a splash of lime juice and fill with the tea. Feel free to garnish with lime slices and mint leaves, but totally unnecessary. A nice cocktail to combat the summer heat and also easy to make completely virgin.
(Yes, if I ever have a cooking show, it will be all cocktail recipes just to be cheeky.)
