full of life

this is a soup

It’s times like this weekend when I feel as is my plate is completely full. It’s been a busy week on all fronts. Kim and I held the second dinner for A Moveable Feast. Everything came together smoothly and I feel as if something truly special is just beginning. Of course, while I had my camera on the kitchen counter, ready to photograph the meal we created, in the excitement of it all, I didn’t take a single photo from the night. Perhaps it is for the better, to continue with the mystery.

I couldn’t help but share some of the makings of the feast though, just some tidbits.


Mainly, I am just endlessly happy that I was able to make a vegan bastilla; a dish I enjoyed on special occasions as a child. Such a major accomplishment for me.

I know the next dinner is just around the corner, and we’ve already started planning, but in the mean time I’m trying to focus my attention on the multitude of other projects I have always queued up in my mind.

I feel like there is something just on the horizon that is about to reveal itself.

    I love these photos! Oh that foccacia… and the gazpacho… I could go on, but I’ll stop. At some point we have to cook for ourselves so that we can really enjoy everything!

    i just stumbled on your lovely blog! I am a foodie and crafter myself. I was wondering how your quick mint infused vodka ever turned out? I’m venturing into the infusion world myself, with a strawberry lemon zest vodka, and wanted to try a mint/lime zest next.

      it actually turned out quite delicious. it added a nice mint flavor to mixed drinks. although i sort of wish i had used better vodka.

  5. I love this concept! You both are so talented. I hope you’re getting a good response.
