MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: AUGUST 12–18, 2019!

Got film developed, was a little too ambitious with our first time charcoal grilling, saw a few movies at the Alamo Drafthouse, and learned my mom’s shabu shabu recipe.

Enjoy!

Back to Samy’s for my second film pick up. As I was organizing some things in the workroom, I found some undeveloped rolls of black and white film. HUGE surprise that they were actually from high school. So many familiar faces.

Alyssa kindly invited me to go with her to try on some wedding dresses for her wedding. (I truly understand now what it means when people say ‘wedding season’ in your life, lots of good friends planning a wedding!)

We got margaritas and a snack afterwards

Lenore let me borrow these glasses, and truly wish I kept them forever

We wanted to test out the outdoor grill thinggy in the backyard, so of course I had to have a salt spill disaster.

First, some repotting.

Untitled

It was horribly smokey at first. We are total amateurs, never have used a charcoal grill before (can’t you tell)

Untitled
Success!

Untitled

Untitled
Untitled
Good start…the charcoal actually lit up!

Untitled
Will this actually cook?

Untitled
The boys anxiously watched

Untitled
Looking back on this, we definitely didn’t use enough charcoal

Untitled
Enjoying the summer evening

Untitled

Untitled

Turns out we did NOT give ourselves enough time (hours…) and had to throw everything on the stove. Well, we certainly learned that we needed more heat and more charcoal overall.

Untitled
Rushed off to see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. A bloody end to the week.

Thanks for reading!

One thought on “GRILL FAIL AND SHABU SHABU

  1. (I’ve just moved to North Macedonia, where they use wood stoves.) I’ve learned that you should probably just use twice as much charcoal as you think you need and definitely start way early in the day.
