This time of year the garden is winding down its pepper production but it was nice to use what I had and only supplement with a banana pepper from the store. The tomatoes were a big disappointment! I bought a 4 pack and two of them were molded by the next day! I keep telling myself I'm taking produce back to the store when that happens but once again I didn't. Luckily I had some cherry tomatoes to throw in. And I didn't peel:)
Last week I was in Mill Valley, CA sharing a beautiful house with a friend. We had a great time in Muir Woods and Sonoma and Napa Valley. Great food and wine shared in a beautiful setting with a good friend. Does it get any better than that? But that's a whole other post...
One of the fun things about the trip was cooking in the gorgeous state of the art kitchen of the house we were in. We made delicious breakfasts most days and a couple of dinners. My spice-poached pears were a welcome dessert served with a piece of salted dark chocolate. A perfect ending to a perfect day and a memory to cherish.
Don't forget to go by the French Friday site!
