Life. 365-Style (5/28-7/1)

I’m gonna go out there and say that this set of pictures is pretty boring compared to the last post. But really, what beats the Inca Trail? As it turns out, not much. But life back home in SF isn’t bad, either. The weather has been AMAZING, which means it’s been out of the 60s in the city. Last week, we hit the high 80s. How crazy is that?! Down south in Palo Alto? That’s another story – it sometimes feels like the seventh layer of hell there. In a totally good way, of course ;).

But enough of that. Here’s the pics.

148 – never mind the cat on the mantle – we brought back a bottle of PISCO! But really, how did she get there?

IMG_2790

149 – a kale Caesar salad, and you’ll never guess the secret ingredient in the good-for-you dressing. Ok, I’ll tell you – silken TOFU. So damn tasty.

150 – whhhooooooo are youuuu looking at?

IMG_2796

151 – peach season is upon us!

IMG_2798

152 – taking advantage of a gorgeous day and wandering around Lands’ End with Brook, Katherine, and Graham (visiting from Chicago!)

IMG_2806

153 – where’d Chris get that cute baby from? Meet Graham, Brook/Katherine’s bundle o’ fun.

IMG_2813

154 – Happy 7th (!) anniversary to us! We loaded up on sushi from ICHI in Bernal Heights.

IMG_2816

155 – do I have to tell you?

IMG_2818

156 – why has it taken me 33 years to discover the awesomeness of a Pisco sour? and why do they go down so easily? hoo boy.

IMG_2821

157 – still in love with my bike.

IMG_2826

158 – meet Orson T Cumberbatch III !! This is Judy’s new doggy and he is killer cool. And so dang rotten.

IMG_2830

159 – A Saturday full o’ beer, and a bus full of Apple folk. We stopped at Lagunitas (pictured), Russian River, and Bear Republic.

IMG_2843

160 – fried chicken eggs benedict (what?) at Brenda’s. holy heaviness.

IMG_2847

161 – this is how I spend my commutes these days. I’m on Season 5 now. Also, I LOVE Jerry’s sneakers.

IMG_2849

162 – I’ve been looking forward to breakfast at The Mill on a rando day off. I finally made it there after a nice foggy run in Golden Gate Park and a drive by our old place. That Josey Baker knows how to bake, that’s fo sho.

IMG_2859

163 – just another commute. i love how the sunshine makes my arm look ultra hairy.

IMG_2861

164 – afternoon shade in the living room, and balls on the wall.

IMG_2863

165 – a well-spent Friday night at El Techo de Lolinda with Liz & Kevin. Not a bad view, eh?

IMG_2876

166 – Chris and I were sans plans on a Saturday night, so we up and decided to walk down the street for ramen at Ken Ken. It was a brilliant move.

IMG_2882

167 – this was our appetizer almost every night of my childhood: garden-fresh cucumbers soaked in apple cider vinegar and cracked pepper +/- fresh tomatoes.

IMG_2889

168 – the damn cat is cheating on me! but that’s ok, I always think it’s super sweet when she shares her love with people other than myself, even if it is infrequent.

IMG_2891

169 – I made a pie version of the popular Indian samosa and I almost forgot to photograph the goodness. whoops. and yes, I used my regular recipe for pie crust, but with a mixture of 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white spelt flour.

IMG_2893

170 – I’d love to find out who did this to their bike. I’d punch them.

IMG_2903

171 – the other cooking thing I did recently is make 2 batches of pizza dough, which is enough for 4 4-serving pizzas. You freeze them individually and thaw overnight when you want to make pizza. this came in handy when the in-laws were in town. this is a hella tasty one: bacon, brussels sprouts, red onions.

IMG_2908

172 – just seemed like a cool array of oranges and greys, one of my new favorite color combos.

IMG_2912

173 – we made an attempt to go hiking in Point Reyes with Susan & Barry, but instead we ended up teaming up to change a leaky tire on the Mini. It seems that hiking and flat tires go hand in hand with us these days (see this post)! we made the best of it, and the pic above is of the signs on the crazy bathroom at the gas station. oh, small towns.

IMG_2932

174 – why, yes. this is a miniature “castle”. outside of a soccer field in the Presidio.

IMG_2968

175 – no words.

IMG_2969

176 – didn’t know this was a shaky pic, but nonetheless, i was watching Iron Chefs battle Iron Chefs. Of course, I was going for Michael Symon, and of course, he won it all. duh.

IMG_2972

177 – Tange has been taking prednisolone for almost a year now, but now we have to also start giving her thyroid meds twice a day. she is definitely getting tired of these pill pockets, so it’s time to break out the tuna! too bad you can’t shove pills into pieces of bacon…

IMG_2974

178 – do you see the kitty in the window?

IMG_2981

179 – another pizza night. this time using fresh kale, black beans, more bacon, and feta cheese.

IMG_2986

180 – Pride weekend in the Castro. this guy was marrying people for 5 cents!

IMG_2998

181 – spending Sunday on Lake Anderson is a good way to end the weekend, even if I do suck at wakeboarding.

IMG_3003

182 – impromptu sandwich dinner: turkey, cheddar, and arugula with pickled red onion. i even tossed some miso butter on the grill pan to season the bread. CARB LOVE.
