What can I say? Another lovely summer day. Sometimes Minnesota sneaks up on you and is a damn nice place to live. Sun, sun, and more sun! Visits (and jumps into the pool) with our neighbors the Hatzungs, and Nathan’s friend Emmett (who spent the night last night after the close of our baseball season), and Stacey Pooh and Cooper too – all good. At some point I whipped over to Byerly’s for, yes, more great steaks…and this time I didn’t over-grill them – yay! – so they were juicy pink-n-prrrrfect. We ate ’em on the deck, with nothing more than a big salad. When you’ve got perfect steaks, it’s worth keeping the rest simple.

And for dessert? ‘Cuz you’ve got to have dessert to honor such a gorgeous day…strawberry shortcake, oh my. Everyone lovesstrawberry shortcake, including The Coopster! No secret recipe here – Pillsbury (frozen) Buttermilk Biscuits, hot out of the oven and filled with lots of fresh strawberries sweetened with a pinch of sugar, and lots and lots and LOTS of freshly whipped and sweetened cream. Summer Heaven…

    I know! He does love Nathan, it's awesome. How cute are the smiles? So totally "baby," it's very sweet. Especially when he points and says, "Oh!" at everything that catches his eye. The whole world is fascinating and new to him!
