First martini in the new place. I wanted a quiet Friday night at home.
No pesky dog following me around. No need to stop every once in a while and scratch her belly or behind the ears. No need to share a piece of cheese or a bit of protein. No need to tell stories and jokes to someone who never talked back. She’ll not be missed.
So without the little black dog, I made a Tito’s with a drop of Lille Blanc. I had some cashews for a starter and later made country style ribs with a nice tangy hot sauce and roasted potatoes with rosemary and garlic.
It’s a good house and I think I will be happy here. Just need to get through these next few weeks and adjust to things. But it will come.
I got in a quick short hike on a sunny day along the lake and got this picture of Cleveland off in the distance.
Multiple field entries this week. Nice to see the Friday Night Martini crowd growing 🙂
