Quotidian: daily, usual or customary; 
everyday; ordinary; commonplace

They just. don't. stop.

Salsa, o how I love thee!
Which is good because...

They're not exactly "trickling in" anymore.

The pre-supper scramble: which became pasta with sausages and lemony grilled zucchini.

Homemade: you'll NEVER guess what kind. 
So I'll tell you!
Sweet corn with blackberry sauce, yum.

Sweet boy.

Making a delivery.

The kitchen apprentice.

It's beginning to look a lot like ... late summer.

Taking a break.


This same time, years previous: the new bakery, grape parfaits, puppy love, walking the line, chocolate yogurt cake, oatmeal jacked up, why I don't teach my kids science, around the house, dreaming, pasta with sauteed peppers and onions, and losing my marbles.    


  1. "Sunset" reminds me of Peter Pan... And the cat photo made me (and my husband!) laugh out loud!

    1. On Facebook I referred to it as "A Peter Pan spotting." We (or you and my husband, because he's the one that pointed it out) think alike.

  2. I'm SO jealous of the berries and tomatoes! We here in hawaii can only wish to grow such a huge variety of produce in our gardens. We manage a few hens for eggs and a backyard garden (raised beds) but the heat and humidity limit what we can grow. Are your tomatoes San Marzano or a Roma variety? Beautiful!

    1. That's a puppy, not Charlotte. But she IS looking better.

  4. sweet corn ice cream!!! That's a fun one :) Right now I've got Gucci muu muu in my freezer. Yes. The family is divided on this one.

    I want to hear total volume of tomato preservation at the end of the season. What all are you doing with them? I want to roast some tomatoes yet this fall (your method) and make more ketchup.
