Of late

I have so many posts to share, I do. But time has not been on my side as of late. So next week. Definitely next week. In the meantime here are some things to prove that I am still here.

Succotash salad from Ms. Goin. I really thought this recipe was going to the one that proved that she is not perfect in the kitchen. But then I tossed the 4 separately prepared parts together with a simple dressing and VOILA! Delicious as usual. (Also the goat cheese was a personal addition, which I think made it even more tasty).

Our neighbors slipped fertilized eggs under their broody hen and look who popped out! Baby chicks are the cutest.

Someone is 18 MONTHS OLD. Am I the only one who can’t believe it?

The ladies of Bash Please threw a delicious little dinner party catered by Heirloom LA and I stole away with these beautiful fresh beans. I’m going to keep them for next summer’s garden.

Salsa verde – Oaxacan style. You guys, I’m now the master of both red and green salsas. OMG they are going to blow your mind when I post the recipes next week.

Hope everyone has a hot hot summer weekend. I can’t believe we’re already at the end of August.

    He’s so big! Those curls! How will you stand to ever cut it?

    Very excited for your salsa recipes – I’ve been looking for some good ones!

    i can’t believe he’s 18 months old either… because if he’s getting older, that means my guy’s getting older.
    makes a bad case for my denial!

    excited for your salsa recipes!

    I meant to try the salsa last Saturday when we were over! I can’t wait for the recipe! And I can’t believe Dash is 18 months old!! Although he did look like more of a boy than a baby sitting in the back of the car!

    I really can’t believe that Dash is growing up so fast!
    I started reading your blog about when you got married, maybe a year before my own wedding… and now your son is 18 months already and I am married since nearly one year and expecting twin boys in the next days. I can’t believe time is running so fast.

    I love new salsa recipes so I’m very excited for this post! I would also love the salad recipe, if you can share…it looks so fresh and summery.
    My little guy will be 22 months on Monday…sometimes it seems like he’s been my soulmate forever and other days it feels like I just met him.
