Apparently August was the month to cook old standbys, eat out, travel and take random pictures on my phone. Translation: I haven't much to report. Although I love summer, and do feel the need to squeeze in a few more beach days, iced coffees, and wear plumerias in my hair daily, I am looking forward to fall. Cooler weather, pumpkins, halloween, sweaters, scarves, soup(!) and even football.
Though I haven't been trying new recipes lately, I have started flipping through cookbooks again, and am daydreaming about hosting a dinner party, wine night, or international night. It's been so darn hot, the idea of standing in the kitchen (where the AC doesn't reach) keeps me in daydreaming mode. So for now, I collect inspiration, dog-ear recipes and await next season and its culinary inspirations and challenges.
And for the heck of it, here's some random pictures..
