i’ll just leave this right here
this marin cheese company feta is out of this world; i picked mine up at the local coop, and whole foods carries it as well.
since i eat almost entirely local and seasonal, it’s exciting for me when a favorite food is back at the market, and right now it’s peas. i love getting creative with my produce, but sometimes you just want to highlight simple flavors. so: english peas sauteed to crispiness with freshly cut bacon.
fort mason market with jehnna.
brunch: goat cheese and yellow squash scramble with dill; crispy rosemary roasted purple fingerling potatoes with balsamic; gluten free pancakes with hemp seeds, shredded coconut, honey and toasted pumpkin seeds.
dolores park with a brown bag of cherries and some cookbooks.
blackberry pear cider at zeitgeist.
dinner at west of pecos, bourbon and an assortment of meats (including pork belly with crispy brussel sprouts and pickled onions.)
strawberry and white balsamic ice cream at smitten.
dinner and tea at peacefood before a CTY reunion at the parlour. taking three trains to get home. eating leftovers and curling up in bed.
lil dicky videos in our pjs. getting dressed is hard, layers are important. walking to williamsburg to find that ella is closed, but station has good brunch. mimosas make me sleepy. running through penn station to catch the train to princeton. getting picked up at the junction by mom and dad, like we’ve been doing for 15 years. grading papers at the battlefield. making a seasonal dinner from whole earth center bounty: red leaf lettuce with goat cheese, multicolored grape tomatoes, toasted pumpkin seeds and a sunflower oil and cider vinegar dressing; roasted cauliflower with sauteed baby bellas, roasted yellow squash and semi-caramelized onions; and for dessert, pear halves hollowed, with a square of almond chocolate in the cup, filled with almond butter, roasted and topped with toasted pumpkin seeds. sitting at the kitchen table grading papers after dinner, drinking jasmine tulsi tea. poring over the almost 20 years of CTY memorabilia that lives in my childhood bedroom. falling asleep watching friends.
making two kind of pancakes for breakfast, a sweet and a savory. napping in the car with my and katie’s heads stacked on top of each other.
