Seasonal Obsession

August 19, 2019

As part of my commitment to a daily consumption of tomatoes during their short season of sweetness, I’ve been mixing it up by slow-roasting them. The other night, I made the most divine BLT. Slow-roasted sun-gold cherries, thick-slab, apple-smoked bacon with arugula on sourdough bread by Tartine. Each bite was ambrosia. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

August 9, 2019

It’s Friday evening as I post this, and I hesitated, because I like to end the week on a more inspirational note. This Time cover by artist John Mavroudis, lists the locations of the 253 mass shootings in America so far this year. Until there’s action on gun safety, we have to stay uncomfortable. It’s enough.
