According to an article in the Los Angeles Times this past weekend, this summer has been the coolest on record in LA since 1991, with an average July temperature of 73.5. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous (we took Tiny G to Point Dume) and it looks like we’ll be enjoying some 80-degree days this week.
Here’s my checklist to kick off a perfect summer evening:
1 basket of figs, rinsed, sliced in half and dotted with blue cheese. Roast in 350-degree oven for 10 minutes.
2009 Chateau de Pampelonne ($17/bottle), chilled
Social Primer monogrammed cocktail napkins
Nina Simone singing “Summertime”
