Last weekend my husband and I hit our 7th year marriage milestone. To celebrate, I forced him to make my favorite dinner ever — chittara pasta with roasted cauliflower, chili flakes, bread crumbs, Parmesan and a LOT of olive oil. (Side note: This was the first time I’ve actually watched him make this dish and I have to say after I saw the sheer amount of oil in it, I almost wished I hadn’t helped him make it. My god!)
But besides a fantastic dinner and a bottle of bubbles, we laid low for the day, saving our energy for this weekend instead. My husband took a very rare Saturday off and, thanks to Labor Day, we have two blissful days planned on Vashon Island in Washington.
The island is known for having many farms so local produce, meat, cheese and dairy is a big deal here. There are also several wineries, a brewery and a distillery so you know where I’m planning to visit! There’s also beaches, hiking trails and parks to explore. Plus the wonderful smell of sea salt in the air.
We drove up from Portland this morning, making it through the first fog and rain of the summer season. We caught the ferry in West Seattle and arrived on the island a mere 20 minutes later.
Very excited to check out everything Vashon has to offer!
