This salad is beautiful. I want to make and eat one right now. Found in canada, i’m not surprised.

The feel good kitchen

I just got back from our annual vacation in Canadato find summer in Los Angeles still in full swing. The first few days of September have been scorching with temperatures hovering near 100*. My tomato plants are loving the prolonged heat and I came home to find them full of sweet, delicious fruit. I couldn’t resist posting this shameless tomato selfie on the BHF Facebook Page..


When my friend Paige saw the pic she commented “I want to eat you tomatoes!” so I gladly invited her over for a tomato-centric lunch. I also had a couple of little Japanese eggplant, yellow summer squash, zucchini and peppers in the garden so I thought of making ratatouille but wanted something lighter. I came up with this salad of grilled vegetables in a cherry tomato vinaigrette. It tastes delicious warm or chilled and is a fresh, healthy take on a summer standard…

Take Two!

So, still new to blogging but needed a blog login to join the Barbara Walker Treasury group. I love to knit however some days I’m just not up to it. I was intrigued when I came across this group. The swatches created by this group are irresistible eye candy to the knitter who wishes to step up their knitting game. There are four books from which you can choose your patterns and it is these very same four books that were my limiters(is that a word? it is today). They are expensive(in my opinion) but as I have recently learned worth the price. I finally took the plunge and purchased book one(at a bargain rate mind you) and am glad that I did. Although published in black and white I can still see the beauty in some of the published patterns and strangely enough, cannot wait to cast on for a swatch. Strange because I am known by my fellow knitters to detest swatching and absolutely refuse to do so for my larger projects. Maybe it is the knowledge that once the swatch is complete there is no need to go further….i’m not really sure but this is something I am looking forward to and as such might actually blog about. We shall see. Photos to follow…….
