This weekend I am looking forward to:


Continuing to read this
















and this. I'm really enjoying this Beatrix Potter biography but it's taking me awhile.
















Going to a big outdoor party to celebrate the host's birthday and mine - same day, same year, 4 hours apart. I think that's such a great coincidence.

We are bringing this Tres Leches cake and a chocolate one too, from a great local bakery.



Making frozen margaritas with the new blender my husband wanted for Father's day.




Eating ribs and cole slaw on Sunday, my actual birthday. I use Sara Foster's rib recipe from Fresh Every Day, a great cookbook.

Place baby back ribs atop a sliced onion on a sheet pan with sides. Pour a beer over it and season with salt and pepper. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours. Grill them and baste with barbecue sauce until caramelized and slightly charred. Yum!

Have a great weekend!

I almost got that Beatrix Potter biography but wondered whether I would ever be able to get through it in a timely fashion. DO post a review when you're done.
