loving on our pups, whom we’ll miss while we’re gone.





and other random bits occupying my time this week…

reading all of gourmet mag’s kid’s menu page by lesley porcelli.


wanting to try this recipe for the almond praline semifreddo pictured above.

loving the  blog and the shop, reverie. i bought something small for a little one we will soon see… and would love this little purse for an upcoming birthday? (okay, okay it’s in october, but you never know who’s looking…)


and heeding this advice from slow food nation:

Get cooking.

Eat together.

Pack a bag lunch.

Conserve, compost and recycle.

Drink unbottled water.

Eat seasonally.

Buy local.

Buy organic.

Plant a kitchen garden.

Avoid genetically modified food.

Learn your region’s food story.

Try making things from scratch.

Meet your farmer(s).

Talk food politics.

Teach children what you know.
