Until Cooler Days

Just a quick post to show some photos of my last days in Sacramento before going to NYC (and now I am in Connecticut at school). It was Ukraine’s independence day so that means my family and I went and sat through a long festival. But the dancing was quite nice:

Before leaving for the East Coast I tried two recipes from the Barefoot Contessa’s book: phyllo dough pastries stuffed with goat cheese and a lemon mousse. Both turned out pretty well and I would make the pastries again.

I also made my own whipped cream for the mousse. Who knew whipping cream when blended led to whipped cream? Fun discovery.

Lemon, lemon, lemon

I’ll be back in Sacramento when it’s much cooler. I guess it will be soup making weather.
