Last week I stopped by a farm stand on my way home on Alberta. There’s a little lot that grows vegetables right there, and my friend Kusuma sells her fabulous, fabulous bread there as well. When I went to pick up a loaf of bread last week, I grabbed some of these beautiful eggplants as […]

I’m in Seattle again, just for an overnighter. But don’t worry, I actually worked ahead this time and did a post! I know. Shocking. But I’ve got a goal to do 21 posts in August. That’s one for every single weekday. Yeah, it’s quite a few – but it used to be what I knocked […]
