I am in vacation mode. Every August, we rent a house in the same town on the same road and I do the same things that I never do the rest of the year: I read, I ride a bike, I watch Showtime series, I paint rocks. Yup, I really paint rocks and it's becoming an unhealthy obsession. I also cook, and although that's nothing new, I try to cook light, beach-y meals. Like this dip Carson and I attempted two years ago. Only this time, we made it with Smoked Albacore (found at Gelson's) and instead of flaking the fish with a fork, we put it in a food processor. It gave the dip such a lovely and professional quality. In fact, we might set up a Lemonade Stand and sell our dip on the side. Of course, you'll also be able to purchase my painted rocks for only $500 a pop. What, they're really special.
