What’s Happening In The Seattle Area This Weekend? | July 29

Hey there Seattle!,

I can’t believe it’s almost AUGUST!  My kids have enjoyed getting out swimming as much as possible on these warm days.  We usually go to Lake Washington; the beach at Brackett’s Landing in Edmonds is a little chillier but still fun.  This weekend we visited friends at Lake Goodwin up North.

How have you been?  Find some time to bask in the sun and enjoy it while it’s here!

When you’re ready for something a little more active – we’ve got options for you below!

P.S. Lots of new construction getting sold!  Let me know when you’re ready to go out and have some fun looking at property!

Baker and Glacier Peak from between the branches of a big leaf maple tree, or walk across one of the suspension bridges among the trees.  Open April through October, the Bellevue Zip Tour is a natural wonder in the city, waiting to be discovered by you!

3) Online – Make The Best Gnocchi Ever!

The best and oldest gnocchi is ndunderi (dune – der – ee). Originally made from ricotta, semolina dough, and mixed with eggs, this gnocchi was inexpensive, easy to prepare, and filling for Roman legions who spread the dish throughout Europe. Now centered in Minori on the Amalfi Coast, drained cow’s milk ricotta replaces the usual potato/flour combo to create a pillow of wonder for sauces to embrace.
