WEEKEND




Lots of Smitten Kitchen-ing followed by outdoor eating this weekend, you guys. Carlos roasted some peppers (for this recipe) which we loved on top of crusty slices of baguette.


In between eating, I did some reading. And movie watching - Midnight in Paris, finally. Owen Wilson was perfect.

Here's Charlie, one of our neighbourhood feral cats. Our neighbour distributes a newsletter every now and then with photos/names of the cat colony. Last night six of the kitties were having a group hang/snug in our backyard. It was definitely the highlight of Carlos's weekend.


For Sunday's dinner we picked up a roasted chicken from Inigo and I made that amazing potato salad again annnd this super easy green bean and cherry tomato salad. Seriously, how much do I/you love Smitten Kitchen? I can't wait for Deb's cookbook.

What are your favourite food blogs/cooking sites?

  3. Whoooa, would you believe that the EXACT same book/mag combo is sitting on my floor not inches from my feet as I type!? Collected stories of Lydia Davis on top of that exact issue of the Gentlewoman, hahaha, what does this mean??? I've left if like that for ages because I like the color combo. Hmmm, maybe I should try reading the book? It's actually my boyfriend's and I haven't peeped at it yet...

  5. Yum, I just made some cookies from Smitten Kitchen last night (originally a David Lebovitz recipe: http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/01/chocolate-chip-cookies/ ) and they are perfect. Thanks for the heads up on Midnight in Paris, how have I not heard of this?

  9. Those look like perfect summer meals! I've also got a bit of a Smitten Kitchen addiction going on. I feel like a lot of my go-to recipes come from there. Also love What Katie Ate, Seven Spoons, Sprouted Kitchen, Not Without Salt.
