Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

Birthday Brunch...

Today is hubby's birthday, and although he was still vacillating last night between, "It's not worth celebrating," and "Are you doing anything special for me?", I decided to walk up to the grocery store and get the makings for a little birthday brunch...

Here's a sprig from some of the fresh herbs I used from our little herb garden for the gremolata. I landed on some fresh Italian sausage, pan fried, fresh ricotta cheese, some awesome tomatoes on the vine, and a fresh croissant, something he loves dearly.

The gremolata was a chiffonade of fresh basil, greek oregano, chives (no garlic) and lime zest swirled with some extra virgin olive oil and fresh cracked pepper and drizzled over the cheese and sliced tomatoes. I have to say, this went down pretty easy, and was a nice switch from eggs anything...

Few days back went to my cousin’s birthday party at one of LA venue. She had sparkle themed party which was just astonishing and her invitation cards were just appreciable. I loved entire arrangements of the day.
