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.
Zucchini Ribbon Pasta
This past weekend, I was up in Murrieta, CA for The Big Potluck for a food blogging conference I’ve been looking forward to for several months. After a 3-hr car drive in the worst LA traffic, we finally made it to the venue. And then after having a bit too much wine the first night there, I severely suffered the consequences of the most “awesome” hangover I have ever experienced.
Lesson learned: alcohol + conferences do not go well together.
Sweet Potato Kale Frittata
I finally got my taxes done, 1 week before tax day, which is not really the way I do things. I like to take care of things way in advance, just in case something goes wrong, but that was a little difficult this year.
