From the Open House, we went to the Meadowbook Wine and Food Festival right by my house. I expected the wine and food to be roughly 50:50, but there was much more wine than food (which could be good or bad, depending on how you look at it). Either way, after two back-to-back events outside in 90F heat, we headed for a restaurant nearby to get more lunch of nice cold salad and WATER. It tasted so good. Once we got enough lunch, we came home and crashed. It's wonderful how things like nap time are possible on Saturdays.
After we awoke, we got back to cooking, making 'Mediterranean Baked Feta with Tomatoes' from the blog Smitten Kitchen and roasting a chicken. Those two with some crusty bread and wine were excellent.

Sunday night we cooked more, plus ate more tasty leftovers and got our fill of trashy TV. NICE. I didn't expect to have many visitors out here, so having another weekend to share Michigan with someone was pretty cool. While GM put me in a two bedroom in case there were other female grad students working in the area (they usually put two grad students in a 2-bed apt), I have continued to be roommate-less through the summer (looking that way for fall, too). In the meantime, I have been enjoying the flexibility having a spare bedroom has allowed.
