Greetings from Carmel-by-the-Sea! I’m currently in Monterey County for the Dole & EatingWell “Taste of Spain” Salad Summit with a wonderful group of bloggers, soaking up the sun in the lettuce fields and enjoying squid ink aioli, saffron cream mussels, and a huge pot of paella. It’s pretty amazing, to say the least.
Asparagus Tart with Balsamic Reduction
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. My weekend consisted of 670 miles of driving to and from San Francisco in a span of two days, a late night showing of Iron Man 3 on Saturday night, and a friend’s law school graduation in which I was an hour late to, causing me to rush and trip up the stairs in the auditorium in front of an entire crowd. All in all, other than the mortifying fall to my face in front of hundreds and hundreds of people, it was an awesome weekend.

Berry Medley Oatmeal Crumb Bars
Boy, am I glad it’s Friday. This week completely dragged on and I was honestly ready for a glass of wine at 10AM on Monday morning. Then, Wednesday, I woke up with a sore throat and now I am officially sick as a dog, inhaling cough drops by the minute and counting down the seconds until I am officially off of work to make my way to San Francisco.
