I love summer rain. Especially on Fridays. There’s nothing like a downpour to wash away the collective muck of a long work week. My fiance and I made our way to Trader Joe’s to pick up some necessities before the weekend. We thought we were being clever and getting a weekly chore out of the way early. But instead we got completely soaked in a sudden rain storm, groceries in hand and running through Bed Stuy against battering heavy rain drops and thunder.
You can bet that we laughed through every second of it.
But like all storms, it manifested a rainbow. I cooked us a meal that materialized into two vibrant colors; fiery red and sun-drenched yellow.
