The Hidden Kitchen was magical. Here is super host (for whom I now have a little bit of a food crush) Dennis' recipe for Crema de Limoncello. Make sure to read the comments for instructions on how to make Limoncello as well, we tried some that had been aged for two years and diners commented that it tasted like drinking a flower.

To be honest, I'm surprised I've made it almost to the middle of the month before relying solely on kitties for the day's content. I'll just say it: they are sooo cute!!!

Happy things for the middle of the week:

1. Pj pants made out of bedsheets - brilliant! I especially like the wide legs and how it looks like she used the top hem of the sheet for a natural decorative cuff.'

2. Last night I lit the pilot light and turned on our heater all by myself. Now we can have heat whenever we feel like it.

3. Just signed up for Sacramento's Run to Feed the Hungry. I am super excited for this, such a wonderful way to spend a crisp Fall morning. p.s. we walk.

4. We have reservations at the Hidden Kitchen this weekend.
