I've been wanting to share this for a little while, but food52's recent post on sweet and savory uses for blackberries reminded me that some things are better late than never. Blackberries are getting a little out of season, and this news is getting a little out of date, but... I like the pictures!
Way back when (okay, at the end of June), I sopped up the vacation time between the end of my third year of medical school and the chaos of starting my fourth year (and studying for my second set of boards). Nick, who is now in my medical school class, also had the two weeks off, and we spent some time making denim aprons and recreating Ad Hoc food at home.
In some ways, I knew it was coming because we have been planning for the couples match, which begins this fall. When Nick said, "Leave your Saturday open," I was pretty sure I knew the gist of his plans.
On the Friday, we made plans to try our hand at homemade Pad Thai with my mother and Mia; we (yes, all four of us) even made a special trip to my favorite grocer, Jay's International Food Co. for all the fixings.
