Spring Playlist by Gray

April 14, 2015

peace man G curated this nice eclectic playlist for spring, which I am happy to share. I always turn to my brother for new music recommendations, and this list does not disappoint. It is totally far from my usual musical leaning, and I like it!

Mason Jar Latte

April 12, 2015

This weekend I wanted to try making a latte using only an Aeropress and a mason jar. Not a purist's latte, of course, but it comes surprisingly close to an authentic steamed milk latte. The method turned out so simple, and the latte so delicious. I followed this helpful guide from The Kitchn.

1. Brew espresso or strong coffee (from an Aeropress), without diluting with water
2. Froth milk (I used skim) by shaking in a mason jar 30-60 seconds
3. Microwave uncovered jar 30 seconds
4. Pour warm milk in espresso/coffee, holding back foam with spoon
5. Add foam as desired

A few phone photos from early April:
{Just a glimpse. There is always more outside the frame.}

1. Kicking off an April goal of surprising M with a weekly date somewhere new—last week, the yummy east side trailer Patrizi's. We enjoyed the red sauce spaghetti with meatball, house salad, garlic bread, and beer/wine from the adjacent Butterfly Bar.
2. Post work cocktails on a particularly stressful Tuesday.
3. A grey fox on the roof of our backyard shed! Sadly my only photo (taken by my sister-in-law) from a nice family Easter visit.
4. Gammy's morning glory muffins
5. Neighborhood coffee walk. {Someone is not amused by my love of the color palette and old truck.}
6. East Austin Succulents
