I have finally recovered from our lovely Valentine’s celebration, so I bring you this Photo Friday! post on Sunday. There are some more nature pictures; these are from our Buena Vista park hike last week and there are some photos from our trip up North, to Healdsburg, CA.
From top to bottom: various views and flowers and plants seen along the paths of Buena Vista park in San Francisco. That log says, “We were raised to see life as fun…take it if you can.” Can anyone help me identify any of those flowers? I would greatly appreciate your guesses in the comments! Following the park pictures: black cod, crab cake (from Willi’s Seafood, Healdsburg) and a spinning dessert display at the bakery we went to for brunch (I believe it was called Downtown Bakery & Cafe).
We had a fun Valentine’s celebration, and hope you did, too! We’re going to be in Portland next week (Thursday-Monday) and I will post stuff after then. In the meantime, you can follow me on Facebook to stalk us see where we are/were and pictures. Have a good week!
This past week, I walked around my neighborhood, saw lots of great nature and enjoyed the sunshine in the beginning of February. Usually, it is cold and rainy, but lately it has been quite spring-like.
For those of you on the East coast experiencing snow storm Nemo, I hope you enjoyed these sunny nature pictures. Maybe some of you are feeling inspired to come to California?!
It’s back! I intend to recap my week (or so) with photos every Friday. Since I’ve been “gone” for a while, this post will be longer than most. Enjoy!
We cooked a lot of dinners at home over the past few months. This includes some pasta and roasted veggies and a lot of brown butter!
and some Chinese inspired dishes: tofu & pork stir fry & spring rolls
There were, of course, many desserts involved. This included, from top to bottom, honey whole wheat muffins, S’mores pie, a cookie swap that included reverse crinkle cookies, homemade granola, a New Year’s Eve party involving decorating cookies with homemade stencils, and some pig-shaped cookies (that I’ll tell you more about soon).
Lastly, we went to Las Vegas for my birthday (in November) and ate lots of food (and drank some beer) including that bottle of Matilda and a chicken salad-salad at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant inside the MGM, some chocolate desserts at Max Brenner’s, and more chocolate (in cake form, with a macaron on top) from Jean Philippe Patisserie.
