Minka Inhouse

Fran from Santiago, Chile wrote us about her Kickstarter campaign for Minka Inhouse. I had to share. Her story is beautiful. Her products are gorgeous. See for yourself. 


Dinner date at Oz

Last night Jeff and I had a dinner date (it had been too long) at Oz Kafe on Elgin Street. We had not eaten there before but had heard good things about it so we were stoked to give it a try. And we loved it (food, service...all was good). Unfortunately we were stuffed and unable to fathom ordering dessert (GASP!) but here is what we did manage to scarf down with pleasure. 

White sangria. The perfect summer drink. We must try and replicate this!

We shared cheese dreams - Balderson old cheddar melted over our homemade bacon on baguette. Oh yessssssss!

I had the pan-roasted steelhead trout - potato & cucumber salad with pickled onion, griled asparagus, preserved lemon marmalade. This was the PERFECT summer meal. (Too bad it wasn't actually that warm out)

My husband ordered (of course) the "steak& caesar" - cast-iron seared thick-cut AAA O'Brien farms beef sirloin, caesar salad, smoked mashed potatoes, homemade BBQ sauce & jus. He loved it. :)


A little gathering for a special furniture maker

I am a bit delayed posting this (it has been a nutso week) but last Friday my husband and I headed to The Modern Shop for a little meet & greet with Minnesota furniture maker Matt Eastvold. We had a really good time and OMG, Matt's furniture is seriously amazing. He has buckets of talent. The proof is below. 

And since I was hanging around enjoying some free vino, I snapped some photos of some goodies Mike is carrying in-store these days....
