sometimes the sweetest part of a day is finding an outdoor patch with just the right amount of sunshine pouring in through the (still green) trees.
oook. as long as there are days like this, i can wait a little longer for chilly weather.. except i wasted no time in scooping up the moccasins from that post where all i wanted to do was snuggle up with tea, cookies and a fox pillow. oops.
that’s all for now. just wanted to share some sunshine before the fog rolls back in. have a lovely day, wherever you are!

i’m not really a sandwich person. i like them, but i’ll rarely order one when i’m out (unless it’s from here or, don’t laugh, here) because i’m so overwhelmed by the 8,963 options and add-ons that i all too often end up with a turkey sandwich, no mayo, sprouts, maybe avocado if i’m feeling adventurous. oh, and pickles too. aren’t i just a party and a half?
today, as i was dragging a 10-pound watermelon home from the market down the street (seriously the best arm workout, and only $1.72!), i was hit with a craving for a simple yet awesome sandwich. simple meaning five ingredients tops, awesome meaning… awesome. the star ingredient? a jar of fig jam i picked up the day before. i have big plans for this jam… i just don’t know what they are yet.
the cast of characters:
fig jam, laughing cow cheese, crusty wheat roll from here, sea salt, baby arugula. and my cutting board, which has seen better days.
the finished product. well, almost finished. clearly i was hungry. dragging watermelon babies up hills and strategically arranging arugula leaves will do that to you. the olive guy on my plate understands.
what’s your favorite sandwich? i’d love to hear! 🙂

perhaps a better title for this post would be “where i obsessively take pictures of food and try not to get sauce on my lens.”
“try” being the operative word here. so far, so good.
here are a couple of my first snaps. i’m still trying to learn all of the settings but it’s mostly been trial and error so far. hope you like!
salt cod fritter at bar bocce in sausalito
marble potato, smoked bacon and fontina pizza, also at bar bocce
asparagus gruyere tart, burnt end not pictured. recipe here.
fresh black mission figs, destined for a salad with prosciutto and chopped pistachios. most of them made it 🙂
now i just need to find a stylish camera bag. please tell me one exists!
