lunch bowl |

I could have a bowl of noodles floating in broth pretty much every day of the week at lunch and be super satisfied. Soba in miso. Egg noodles in a faux pho. Fideos in red broth.

I have been obsessed with the fig tree out back and am dreaming of its potential (in pounds, of course). We are picking a steady ¾ lb to 1 ½ lbs per day, but we may not be able to keep the birds at bay much longer.

We keep roasted beets around during beet season for quick […]

After a week of stretching pantry contents into belly-filling meals, I am happy, happy, happy to have all of this to work with: I’m scouring my cookbook stash for the rest of the weekend to see if there is anything fun and different that I can do with my daikon. What are you cooking this weekend?

glorious greens |

Could care less if the temperatures are still hitting 90. My CSA pickup looked like this today: There were still peppers and eggplant… and okra (it is still Texas in October), but I got beets and salad greens and sweet potatoes and collard greens and onions and parsley and radishes in there, too! Fall is spilling all over my counter and I am doing everything in my power to keep myself from cranking the oven […]
