Happy Halloweenie!


T & I took an adventure over to a u-pick patch in Los Olivos. Picked a perfect round pumpkin to perch in our front door place. Although I had grand plans to carve her, we took off and went to Palm Desert to visit with friends Layne and Shannon instead, since neither of us really wanted to dress up this year. (oh how quickly we have become boring old folks!)

Dual Birthdays


Today is Dad’s Birthday and tomorrow is Grandpa Bobby’s 87th Birthday. We had a BBQ in SLO today for them complete with a german chocolate cake from the Madonna Inn. Yummo!

Montana De Oro


I managed to convince Tim that a table and chair set I found on craigslist was going to be the ultimate buy. The only problem was that it was up in los osos, and even though we had the measurements, he was not confident that it was all going to fit in the back of the pickup truck. Soooo we drove both the truck and the jeep up and made a day of it. Went for a stroll at the beautiful Montana De Oro, and then had some Hana Burgers at Sylvesters in Los Osos.

Nostalgic Bread


Years ago, when I was a kid my mom used to make sweet breads in these tube shaped pans that when sliced, give you cute flower, heart, and star shaped pieces. I had recently been thinking about these pans and if she still had any of them, and after rummaging through all the cake pan cupboards in my parent’s house I managed to find all of them. (though quite a bit rusty, scratched, and worn.) Cleaned up by rubbing oil on them, they will do for now. Surprisingly, you can buy the whole set of these new Here. for under $20.00. Read More

SD Farmer’s Market


Found some photos of our last trip to San Diego when Heather took Julianne and I to the farmer’s market. Making me miss my beautiful friends! Also reminds me that T & I should probably hit up a farmer’s market in Santa Ynez or Solvang for some fresh fall fare :)
