Hot, crispy bananas

We ordered fried bananas along with our yummy Thai delivery tonight, and they were so gloriously hot and crispy that we had to eat them first! The pumpkin chicken curry was also delicious, but it was fun to eat “backwards!” Today’s #OneGoodThing was enjoying hot, crispy bananas with Mama! Day 226 of 365. And Day 957 in a…

A Burrata picnic

This evening Mama and I enjoyed our favorite Burrata dish as a picnic! We brought it along to see a Shakespeare play performed in The Cannery Ruins in Santa Rosa. Sadly, we couldn’t make it through the entire show, as it was too cold for us, even huddled under blankets. Today’s #OneGoodThing was eating toasted pistachios with…

Tomato taste-off

We are growing three varieties of tomatoes in our backyard veggie garden this year. So, to determine which one is our favorite, I created a blind taste test for Mama! The three contestants were a Sweet Seedless Hybrid, a Bushsteak Hybrid, and an Early Girl. The first two varieties were starter plants we ordered from…

Smoked Salmon Havarti Toast

A gourmet day

“It’s like a gourmet restaurant,” Mama proclaimed today, after I brought her this dish of Caprese skewers, featuring luscious tomatoes from our garden and our favorite Balsamic vinegar. Please don’t misunderstand. Yesterday, we ate drive-thru burgers and frozen yogurt. Today we had a wee gastronomic adventure at home. I like to think of it as balance.…

Tasty leftovers all day

Mama and I are still recovering from our awesome party over the weekend. We rested and watched movies together today. Best of all, I didn’t cook a single thing. We ate yummy leftover sandwiches, salads, and more all day! Today’s #OneGoodThing was enjoying food left from the party with Mama! Day 204 of 365. And Day 935…

Poached peaches and candied lemon peel

It was a foodie-centric day in our home. I candied lemon peel for the first time, and was surprised at how easy it was to make. I tried to make two different styles, but the curly ones didn’t really retain their curl. They’re all delicious anyway! I loved the series of photos in this recipe…
