if only i could rewind and relive the holidays... family time, board games, knitting, warm fires, and endless cooking. here are some of my favorite dishes prepared by my mom and dad:
+ rack of lamb persillade with sauteed portabella mushrooms
+ my aunt marina's breakfast crepes with meyer lemon and sugar
+ lasagna with warm broccoli salad
+ homemade vanilla + mocha ice cream in ici waffle cones
+ tomato and goat cheese tart
+ french granny apple tart
+ affagato (made with my mom's new espresso maker)
clearly we're big ina garten fans. so now that my stomach is officially in withdrawal, it's now back to the basics: micro greens + asian pears.

last night with friends: game night + hannukah fun.
nothing like board games, erica + alex's homemade latkes with applesauce + sourcream, and my homemade cinnamon/raison rugelah. no, i'm not jewish, but the food... oh my, the food...
above: erica + alex's menorah featuring their pug tank. amazing.

i'm mildly obsessed with interiors - the private, special, inner sanctums that speak volumes about the people that inhabit them. i love a good behind-the-scenes look at just about anything, and thankfully the selby allows me to indulge in voyeuristic tendencies without being a total weirdo. favorites...
1. confetti systems
2. lindsay + fitzhugh (i went to school with fitzhugh)
3. and most recently annie novak at eagle street farm via primoeza

an old gift from my friend mikey found at a flea market or thrift store when he was living in brussels. i've been taking a little break from my recent quilt - trying to drum up inspiration for the back. hmm...

and the birthday weekend comes to an inevitable yet fulfilling end...
perfect weather marked by the reappearance of my toms slip ons.
cafe fanny in berekely - an alice waters joint. well worth the wait.
farmers market finds:
1. rabbit up for adoption - petted, not purchased
2. bolani bread - suckered in by the samples
3. buddha's hand citrus - perplexing
4. banana chocolate muffin - yum
