Other brief recap: One of the stray cats around here adopted us; he is in love with Louis! We saw X-Men: First Class; awesome, go see it. We grilled fresh shrimp one night and ribeyes the other. Because of grilling the first night, the backyard was set on fire. Yup, sometimes 24 hours isn't enough for the charcoal to completely burn down and cool off. Don't throw those coals into a pile of dry pine needles. Our new cat is the one who warned us, so it was taken care of very fast. But still.... backyard on fire.
Alright, so before we made it over to the island, we stopped at our favorite deli, Church Street Deli. This place is hands down my favorite sandwich shop ever. They make simple, uncomplicated, high quality sandwiches, wraps, soups and sides. They use all natural Pepperidge Farm breads and Boar's Head meats and cheeses which are sliced on site. I don't mind that those are purchased. The ingredients are fresh and the adorable building with its lovely kitschy decor is spotlessly clean.
