One of the sweetest things about a 98 degree day like today in Los Angeles, is the cool night that follows. Just when I thought I couldn’t take the fiery heat anymore… the sun set and a cool breeze blew in. It was time to light the candles and dine alfresco on the deck.
As the crescent moon set over the canyon, I broke out a new organic sparkling wine from Spain I found at Trader Joes. “Albero” is the name. Super perfection when paired with the strawberries growing on the deck. And even delicious without them! I can’t really remember exactly how much it cost, but it had to be relatively cheap since I’m not buying the expensive stuff much! Yummy. A perfect summer compliment to the soft summer night.
I welcome summer in LA! Yes, the hillsides burn, we sweat and swear at the heat, but oh!!!! the nights!
