Thing #2 Completed

Simon helped me complete this thing, also, but I don't think he really minded all that much. I decided that I wanted to make something with basil and copious amounts of cheese, so I chose a recipe from a book my grandma gifted to me years ago. The dish was a cherry tomato clafoutis. I have to admit, I first thought that "clafoutis" sounded like an std, but I discovered that it is actually a French custard-like dessert made with fruit. This savory version was delicious. I'd include the photos I took, but they simply don't do it justice.

Thing #1 Completed

I actually completed this particular thing months ago. Simon bought me a gift certificate for my birthday to get a 1-hour massage from someone we know here in Hood River who does massage. It took me nearly six months to take advantage of the gift, but I was so glad I did. It was so enjoyable, in fact, that I've had a second 1-hour massage since then, and I fully intend to treat myself to periodic massages from here on out.
