Lucky me.

I’m a pretty lucky girl.

Take a look at our morning yesterday. It was a beautiful Saturday, and after watching our Chelsea FC win 4-1 (we are a very BLUE house…see below), we decided to take advantage of the first fall weekend in the cities.

We rode our bikes across the river to the Mill City Farmer’s Market.  Located between the Mill City Museum and the Guthrie Theater, this market is my favorite in the Twin Cities.  We bought garlic and a baguette, then walked down by the Mississippi and crossed the river to East Hennepin and had a great lunch at Pizza Nea.  It couldn’t have been a better morning!

We’re so lucky to live in a neighborhood that has so much to offer – I love Northeast!

Another reason I feel so fortunate, especially lately, is that I have my own master chef at home. I’ve always loved to cook, but with school being as busy as it is (those who told me that third year of law school isn’t so bad should have their heads examined), Andrew has taken over the kitchen.  He has seriously become one of the best cooks I know.  Over the last week, here are just some of the dishes I’ve been able to enjoy:

          


    

Right now, we’ve got the Packers game on (ok, so we’re a bluegreen house) and chicken braising in home-made tomatillo salsa.  Really a great end to a great weekend.

See?  Told you I’m lucky!
