Heading to the Mountains

Posted August 21, 2009

This last bit of summer is busy around here.  We went to Lopez Island for a couple of days earlier this week and tomorrow we head to Sun Valley for a week with my family.  After Randy’s horrendous travel schedule this summer, I am glad we can wind down a bit as we head into fall.

I am very much looking forward to this trip.  We started going to Sun Valley when I was 11 years old – to ski in the winter and to enjoy all a mountain resort with incredible weather has to offer in the summer.  It is one of my favorite places on Earth.  We will be staying right in the delightful town of Ketchum and, because of the ages of our children, will most likely take it pretty easy.  Walks to the park, maybe a chair lift ride up the mountain, a swim here and there, a visit to a gorgeous lake, and lots of eating.  I must have an Idaho baked potato.  If you haven’t had the pleasure, there is a reason Idaho license plates say “Famous Potatoes”.

I had hoped to prepare a couple of posts to publish while I was gone, but it’s just not to be.  Like I did the last time I skipped town, I want to recommend some awesome sites that I am just loving these days.

I love Gwen at Pen and Fork for her innovative and downright delicious looking food.

I love Sala at Veggie Belly for her incredible vegetarian food, amazing photography, and for being one of the kindest people I have encountered in the blog world.

I love Sara at Sprouted Kitchen for the artful photography and healthy but nourishing food.

I love Tara at Seven Spoons for her perfectly worded prose and delightful recipes (and also for being a mom of two young boys).

I love Ashley at Not Without Salt for her ingenious ways with food and her easy-on-the-eyes web site.  (Another mom of two young boys.)

I love Marta at Just Call Me Marta for her wise words and incredibly positive approach to life and it’s challenges.

And I love Sarah at In Praise of Leftovers because she is a good reminder that we all could do more, not only with the food that we already have in our kitchens, but also for the community.

There are many more – I could probably make this list once a week and add new sites each time.  Enjoy your reading and I’ll be back with more Treats in a week.
