We have one set of dishes in our house. I remembered buying them 5 years ago and how ‘grown up’ we felt to have a ‘proper’ set of dishes. It was bought from one of our favorite lifestyle design companies, notNeutral. Beefcake and I discussed whether we should still keep our old hodge podge set and keep these as our ‘good’ dishes for special occasions, afterall… what if we *gasp* broke one? In the end, we did away with the old set and decided enjoy them on a daily basis and see what happens. Today, as I look at them, the dishes are like a metaphor on how we aim to live our lives.
Honeycrisp apples are in season now! A cross between a Macoun and Honeygold apple, we first discovered this tart and sweet crispy gem when we lived next door to Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington. The apples burst with flavor and Pikelet & Lollo have aptly named their favorite breakfast apple, “The Big crunch!”
… the cutest little zucchini in the world! They’re round and the size of a billiard ball – thus the name 8 ball squash. They are so darn cute, it’s almost a pity to cook them. But here’s a delicious recipe for you to try with your kids. Pikelet & Lollo liked to play with them more than eat them but the squash did looked good enough to try (which is all a parent can ask for). It’s a wonderful Fall accompaniment especially with grilled Lamb Rib Chops.
