Mmm, it’s been a beautiful weekend! Sunshine, dear friends, and time to putter around home and get caught up on cleaning and laundry. How was your weekend?
Friday was Classic Movie Night with my friends. We meet every other Friday and watch old movies like The Quiet Man with John Wayne and Captain Blood with Errol Flynn. This weekend we watched one of my favorite movies of all time: Charade with Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. I love her glam clothes and their witty dialogue throughout. Just fabulous.
Saturday I met up with other friends for their company picnic and we had a jolly time dining on French Fries and hamburgers before adjourning to the sunshine for hours of talking while people-watching. So relaxing and fun, I loved it.
Later I got to stop by at one of my favorite import stores, perusing the shelves of German chocolate, Greek biscuits, and Italian cookies. I bought a paper-wrapped package of Black Forest Salami (I adore paper-wrapped packages!) and can’t wait to turn it into open-faced sandwiches on dark rye bread with ajvar.
I’m VERY excited today because my guest post on Corfu, Greece is up at www.travelbelles.com!! I’d love it if you swing by to visit, read and comment! 🙂
I also bought the most fabulous olive bread with big chunks of black and green olives.
I’ve been eating it all weekend dipped in peppered olive oil.
Saturday I made a rather scrumptious quiche with broccoli, sweet onion and a whole lotta sharp cheddar cheese. Mmm, it’s great hot or cold, especially drizzled with green Tabasco sauce.
Are you a classic movie lover? If so, what are a couple of your favorites?
