bubble tea for an afternoon snack and then headed back to my house to pack the first major load of my stuff into the car for the move. All of my books, vases, and blankets are now at S's house!
hall of gems and minerals. They had a small exhibit with large cut stones and elaborate jewelry as well. I had to take a picture of the amazingly intricate necklace above because all of those big honkin' amethysts reminded me of my great grandma! We wandered across the street after we left the museum and listened to the Houston Symphony Orchestra play at Miller Outdoor Theater for a bit and then headed over to Camerata at Paulie's for some drinks and a tasty charcuterie platter before calling it a night!
broiled lemon bourbon cocktail. I used plain lemon juice instead of lemonade concentrate and upped the rosemary simple syrup to two tablespoons to compensate for the resulting lost sweetness. For dinner I used the Trader Joe's Garlic Basil Linguine (I love their gourmet pastas because they aren't made with egg yolks!) and topped it off with this mushroom ragu. It was all so good that S got seconds of both!
