A passion for food + fashion

Another Ace Weekend

In Drink, Food, Out of Town on September 19, 2010 at 9:42 pm

We are back from a dreamy weekend in Palm Springs—100 degrees by midmorning each day, hot summer nights. A seriously relaxing weekend. Sun, sleep, sleep, sun. My parents came down from Napa Valley to stay with Tiny G while we snuck off to the ACE in Palm Springs. More on all of this later, including paddle tennis with Mr Foodinista and a dip in the pool at the former home of Christina Onassis, which friends had rented for the weekend for a birthday bash, but in the meantime I leave you with summer’s perfect snacks.

Hadley’s Okra Chips with sea salt. Go ahead and laugh. They are really quite reminiscent of … something. And they are also my new favorite cocktail fare.

White wine spritzer, plenty of ice. When the temps get over 100, there is nothing more refreshing than a splash of white wine, club soda over slushy ice, enjoyed in the shade of our garden patio room.

Already planning next escape.
