A Slice of My Life – Week 40

October 8, 2012

Art table, meet art

If you ever sat in my dining room in Seattle, you are familiar with this painting.  Now it has prime positioning over the fireplace.  I love having a bit of the Pacific Northwest in Oakland.

Waiting in the Berkeley post office.  And waiting and waiting and waiting…

Korean rice bowl.  All kinds of yummy things in there.

This plus

this equaled

this.  Recipe coming this week.

Hmmmmm.  What do the dishes drying in my kitchen say about me?

Lots of requests for a hair post.  Coming up this week!

Have I shown you these shoes yet?  I love them.  I bought them in Paris for half off and they are comfortable enough to wear all day.

White sale.  Sur la Table.  Bowls.

Do you make your own hummus?  You should.  I tell you about this week.  (Sense a theme here?)

I got the new Baked cookbook.  It is split into chapters by their ten favorite ingredients.  One was malted milk.  So I made Vanilla Malted Milk Milkshakes.  Recipe coming – you guessed it! – this week.

Neighborhood street fair.  Beads, pumpkins, sno-kones.  Like you do.

A sunset dinner in jammies.  Before you judge the adult beverage choice, that is rosé Lillet and you are supposed to drink it with ice cubes.  Just didn’t want anyone thinking I was a white zinfandel drinker.


  1. Lovin’ those shoes and the jerry curl! xo

  2. Oh my God those SHOES. I love them. And I may love them even more just because they’re from Paris. There I said it.

  3. These are lovely photos! The Korean rice bowl (Bibimbap) is something I just ate last night. I’m located in Korea these days and a bowl of bibimbap costs roughly $4 a meal.

  4. I definitely recognize that painting from your Seattle house! It must be so nice to have memories like that in your new home.

    I can’t wait for all these new recipes this week!

  5. I love the warning about you being a Zinfandel drinker ;) I put ice in my white, and you’re not supposed to, so there. Your beverage is looking pretty damn good to me!
