Mike and I have been debating whether I should separate recipe posts from life posts… I feel like since this is a cooking blog, I have to have a recipe pretty much every time I post. He says that sometimes I should just write about what I’m doing, and if it doesn’t have much to do with cooking, post it anyway. So that’s what’s happening here.
We drove back to San Luis Obispo for the weekend. It’s always good to go back. Especially to my favorite grocery store in the entire world. Every town should have a Co-op like this!
Then we went out to Baywood for Thai Take-Out. I’m incredibly picky about Thai food, but this was pretty good.
My tofu Pad Kee Mow was pretty tasty.
Saturday night we went to a barbecue with our friends, and since I’m completely lame and far too easily distracted by food, this is the only picture I took.
My friend Steve and I had a riveting discussion about baking whole grain bread…in particular why we both messed it up recently. Still trying to figure out how to get a really good loaf of 100% whole grain bread but I feel like Peter Reinhart has all the answers.
The rest of the weekend went unpictured, but included lots of knitting, napping, and eating potato salad. I’m a party animal these days.
We agreed a couple weeks ago that we’d stop for produce on the way back up to the Bay Area. Cherry season is the best part of the year and I needed a fix.
We bought lots of cherries, which unfortunately are already gone. No self control.
One farm stand wasn’t enough… we also got sucked into Garlic World, where Mike enthusiastically tried some garlic ice cream. I want to say it was good, but I’m not sure that’s the best adjective to use. Intriguing? Different? Still working on it.
And now the weekend is over, and I’m sad. But here’s a gratuitous bump shot since it’s been a few weeks and I’m definitely bigger!
I have about a million strawberries in the fridge right now, so for those of you that are here for the recipes, I’ll hopefully have a good one for you tomorrow using some of them!
