We celebrated today by waking up at 6:30am to do yard work before triple digits hit (not my plan initially ... I woke up halfway between Home Depot and Lowe's...). Then brunch time (now we're talking celebration)!

Sauteed garlic, mushrooms, and spinach topped with feta.

Fresh strawberries with spiced walnuts (Worcestershire+olive oil+sea salt+350°+15 min), peach preserve, and Nutella®)
