I am constantly taking pictures of food that i see and i have fallen so far behind in sharing lately. Im going to try and do a catch up of the last couple weeks of things that I thought were fun enough to share. Passionflowers are blooming, figs and squash are in season. We are like a week or two away from the Southern California summer cornucopia of ridiculous bounty.
My neighbor at the community garden has a full on passionflower wall growing. I have never had the fruit. I was planning to trellis one in my backyard this year but a young plant wont survive our july vaca so after we return.
The van nuys german deli is sooo close to my house:
Head cheese anyone?
If you zoom in, you will notice flavors of soy sauce in this chinese whisky
I thoroughly enjoy stroopwafel and if you have had an am flight on United, you have been gifted with a stroopwafel…not sure of the cocktail i would make with this
Last weekend was a roadtrip to the BH branch of Laduree to get the much coveted Barbie box
And of course view the special promo display dolls
Its fig season! I have some in the fridge waiting to be covered with cheese and balsamic
Its still peach season
Jim is scoping out his fav variety of strawberry
Look close…bok choi and cress flowers
The aquash in unstoppable now.
Okay….this got posted incomplete!!!
Here is my mise en place for this email inspired idea…romaine, parmesan, homemade dressing, smoked blue cheese, tomato, avocado, bacon, garlic, radish, shishito (that i grew!), cucumber….i took like 4 pictures because this has the red pepper that i removed but didnt have the egg i added, etc
It was good:-)
Holy crap? My plan was to blog my whole dinner which was yummy but last we we hit the palm springs street fair and i bought the shit!
I previously bought cranberry walnut balsamic from the Farmers Daughter from hemet at the palm springs street fair….that rocked
But the cherry is ridiculous….and wordpress just put the pics in reverse order…..and im to tired to change it
Farmers Market today was rife with new surprises.
Im deep into projects with a short time horizon so wine simmered kraut with grilled sausage sounded like the trick for this saturday
And a potato and beet salad

Coincidence…i had a plan inspired by kevins closet cooking but the only gluten free soy chorizo is the wrong texture…i havent made pasta in a bit so i went that route…
First i gathered sauce ingredients:
Gluten free pasta
With a canned speed it up:-)
