Earlier this summer, I went to a dreaded summer event that I usually avoid like the plague. There is a yearly outdoor exhibition where you can admire and purchase the works of local artists. It is always 30 degrees outside (86 F) and there are always a million people (and children) so I tend to stay away; this year, however, some friends were going so I went along. I ended up dressing a lot more goth-y than I normally would for the daytime for some reason. I also ended up purchasing a nice piece of art for my house; it is a picture of a local landmark painted by my friend's brother.

Now that it's September I have been enjoying the harvest from my vegetable garden! I have been getting a lot of Swiss chard lately so I've been making one of my favourite recipes:
|Swiss chard and tomato linguine with balsamic glazed chickpeas.....the recipe is on Thug Kitchen's website if you want to try it! My parents made the pinot gris.|
It's starting to get cold out so I'd better get cooking!! The garden's days are numbered at this point...
Did you make it out to any summer festivals this year?
