Happy Tuesday!

It’s been a while, we know.

Consider us back on the blog. I thought it would be fun to share a roundup things I’ve seen on the web this week…

Can we move to the Netherlands, plz?

We love Mahjong!
…and started playing it the easy way a couple of years ago (one day we’ll get around to learning how to play the real way). So you can imagine how excited I was to see this via Print Mag:

“Pentagram’s Abbott Miller never played it, but he recently designed an exhibition about Mah Jongg, “Project Mah Jongg,” and its Jewish American influences at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York. And he edited and designed an issue of 2wice titled Mah Jongg: Crak Bam Dot, devoted to the artifacts in the exhibition along with extra content by fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi, who sketched mah jongg-inspired ensembles; Maira Kalman, who illustrated a “mah jongg murder mystery”; Bruce McCall, who created “Miami Mah Jongg,” juxtaposing ancient Chinese figures patiently tutoring a group of Jewish women; and Christoph Neimann, who designed new tile iconography combining the visual language of mah jongg with symbols of Jewish life.”

We went to a wedding on Saturday…

Dinner With Friends

James and I had our small group over for a dinner party last night. James is an amazing cook and whipped up one of his (many) delicious specialties. Thanks, friends for coming over last night. We had a blast!

Brie and baguette paired with an olive mix plus plenty of red wine
Dinner: Gnocchi with classic mornay sauce, blanched asparagus, sautéed onions and garlic, plus niçoise olives
Salad: Mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, avocados with a raspberry vinaigrette

Dessert: Amazing ABC chocolate bombs and cookies with champagne!
