My Week in Food

An abundance of late-season citrus landed in this simple salad of grapefruit, oranges, and cucumbers. The dressing:  1/2 teaspoon coarse mustard, 1 teaspoon honey, 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, pinch salt.

packing lunch instead of opting for concession stand /

Spent Saturday at a track meet where we opted for a BYO lunch instead of the concession stand: bean salad, veggies and dip, empanadas, pixie tangerines, popcorn.


Was treated on Mother’s Day to lots of handmade artwork. My puzzle skills are a little rusty, but I was able to tackle this one.

Blueberry dishtowel all wrapped up / momskitchenhandbook

This little parcel was among a few gifts along with those cards. Is it normal to be so smitten by a dishtowel packaged up in a berry carton?

Two kinds of cherries/

Mr. Mom’s Kitchen brought home the season’s first cherries…two kinds. They lasted  no more than 10 minutes, tops.

Pim's Cup with Cucumber Garnish /

A grilled little gem lettuce salad and this “almost too pretty to drink” Pim’s Cup were the highlights of dinner out at Starbelly .

LIttle gems ready for the grill /

Determined to try my hand at that salad, I sliced little gems in half, quickly grilled them, and tossed them with oranges, almonds, feta, oil, and vinegar. Not the knockout that Starbelly made, but close.

Strawberry rhubarb toast /

Favorite breakfast of the week: strawberry rhubarb compote on buttered toast.

Handmade lamb pasta cute as a candy /

Had intended just lunch at Salumeria in The Mission but couldn’t walk out without picking up these beautiful lamb raviolis for dinner. Like delicate little candies.

beautiful borscht /

Made a pot of beautiful beet soup topped with sour cream and dill.  Nothing is more comforting.

Fearless Feeding book /



Congratulations to Holly of Seal Beach, California who won the Fearless Feeding cookbook. There’s still time to enter the Absolutely Avocados giveaway…and more coming next week!

How was your Week in Food? Highlights? Kitchen disasters?

It might be worth going to Fort Ross just to have that soup!

I could use an extra hand at the fire pit!
