A Perfect Memorial Day Weekend (I)

Every year we hope that the weather will be nice on Memorial Day weekend and that what is considered the official start of summer will bring the summer weather.

Unfortunately, more often than not, that’s not the case. Either it is raining, or it is below 70 F or both, but most often, the weather is not good for swimming on the day when pools are official open.
This time, it was the opposite. The pools are not open, but the weather exceeds expectations! I decided to take upon the advice of the health authorities and spend most of this weekend outdoors. And also, doing some good things for myself.

Biked to the Farmers Market: they asked me to leave my bike at the entrance and kept an eye on it.
Greens, bread and chocolate – all you need! (plus coffee!)
Breakfast outside
Trying Alfajor
Pistachio – raspberry croissant
Took mom to the Forest preserve – deep into the woods 🙂
Wild begonia
Wild phlox
And there was a thuderstorm!

Also, I made svekolnik (Russian cold soup with beets), made a delicious dip (recipe here). and baked a chiffon cake for the first time in my life (forgot to take photos of everything :))

End of Saturday 🙂
