These days are full…in the kitchen, in the mountains, with my family, with friends. A busy life isn’t always a happy life, but there are reasons to smile in everything. Take a peek at what brought me joy this week!
After 30 years, this guy doesn’t need those glasses anymore!
I spy a bed hog.
Tomato toastettes, at least once a week!
Sunflowers (and black coffee) are my favorite.
Looking a little like fall, isn’t it?
My mom sent this pic of two mischievous bears in her neighborhood!
This pile of yum turned into a scrumptious Spicy Mexican Pizza.
I love those few-and-far-between moments when the house feels tidy.
Charred jalapeño! Garnish for fresh tomato Bloody Maries.
In my head, I sound exactly like Stevie Nicks. #gyspyforever
Grilled pineapple for a recipe coming later this week!
A spectacular sunset view from our front porch.
Date night! I could possibly live on burrata.
Yesterday was National Dog Day. I wouldn’t want to live in a world without dogs.
A few tomatoes from our garden. It’s happening!
One year ago, this was happening in Toll Canyon.
Two years ago, I made Basil Jalapeño Blackberry Jam.
Three years ago, we were in Portland as part of our 5-week road trip in Betty.
Four years ago, we were camping near Logan, Utah.
And this is the current situation behind me.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
One year ago: Decadent Pasta Primavera.
