So, in the beginning of the summer I had the great idea of renting for the weekend, a house in the suburbs with a pool... I thought it was smart, it would be getting the best of suburban life, without the other soul sucking 360 days of the year.  My parents have a house with a pool in the suburbs but, the problem is, they will be there as well    :P


I have looked from here to Pa, south Jersey, upstate, there are not many and they are either disgusting or too expensive for what I want to do.. 


Anyway, thought of a great idea.. Some developer needs to buy a few houses or a gated community or something with lots of cheap houses.. Update, put a pool and market these homes to shmucks like me..  Could do a complete package with picking you up, stocking the fridge, a few grills and some beer and you are golden! 


So yeh, waiting for this to happen.. In the meantime, i will be checking VRBO and Airbnb for a nice little house with a pool.. 

Real estate taxes, coupled with changes in the federal tax laws regarding real estate deductions will keep this a dream. Lots of homes for sale in Westchester for this reason, not many pools...

A week of inexpensive fish cookery,except for a chunk of cod: fried smelts with preserved meyer lemon. Squid in a fresh tomato sauce with paccheri. Provencal fish poach with littlenecks and cod,nice splash of Pernod with rice and a tian of nightshades. Canned smoked sprats nicoise like salad. Domaine Fontsainte gris de gris rose all week. Peach crostata ,cornmeal almond biscotti,more tomatoes, and no complaints,all fresh and satisfying.
