Sophie spent much of this past weekend at Katsucon-an anime convention at National Harbor, but she got home early enough on Saturday to eat dinner with us at our friend's house.
We brought our fondue pot, a cocktail and mocktails to share.
Our friends supplied the food and a fireplace. We teamed up in the kitchen, slicing fruit and bread. Ian used his low-light lens, to great advantage.
I coveted their copper fondue pot, a garage sale find!
It reminded me of an old fondue restaurant in Ocean City, Maryland whose name I have forgotten. It had wooden booths, dim lighting, and you felt like you were in a 1970's ski lodge.
The snow is melting now, aided by a driving rain. This was accompanied by thunder and lightning on my bike ride home from Crossfit earlier this morning. I'm making Momofuku Milk Bar's "birthday cake" for a friends party this weekend, dashi for dinner tonight and contemplating seeing "12 Years a Slave." I finished a pair of socks for Sophie last week, and the first sock of another pair along with a cute hat. I am debating a trip to Rhinebeck NY Sheep and Wool Festival in October (fall color!), but right now the only kind of weather I want is the sunny kind.
