Mixtape: No. 8

Last night was one of those nights. The skies were dark with thick grey clouds and the heavy cloak of humidity in the air was impossibly hard to ignore. As rain began to tumble yet again, there was nothing more I wanted to do than clamber inside and get away from it all. It was one of those nights where hunkering down and staying put sounded like the perfect solution. And by gosh, hunker down I did.

With a fellow Brooklynite and cooking aficionado graciously braving the weather to come join me,  the night quickly took a turn for the better as we dug into this week's CSA box and officially kicked off the season with a night spent busying ourselves in the kitchen. Two bottles of wine, an unnecessarily fancy (but oh-so-delicious) dinner, and four hours of good, wholesome conversation later we realized we had stumbled upon a tradition worth keeping.

Here's one of the many playlists that kept us company as the night lingered on. Happy listening, friends.
