Or the night that, back when we first moved into the new apartment, the Greek made a lovely dinner of Roasted Red Pepper Polenta and set the fire alarm off no less than 3 times. In his defense, the couple who had lived there before us did not clean the oven.
Or my Hershey tin full of coffee beans, purchased at the favorite Cole Coffee in Oakland.
Or how, inspired by the archives of Pink of Perfection, a favorite blog, you made a Butternut Squash, Red Lentil and Chickpea Stew. My favorite part was the yogurt, lime and peanut topping.
And the breakfast table, ready for a stack of just made pancakes. Though 28, I love that "perfectly-perfect-in-every-way" Mary Poppins mug like no other. The only other mug that I like to use in the mornings is my "Katy, You're the Greatest" cup, which my mother bought for me back in 1984. A little dose of self-esteem in the mornings never hurts.
