Vase

Included with the payment from my most recent wedding clients, was this small, beautiful vase by Heath Ceramics! How wonderful was that?

I believe this is the last of our coffee making tools.

Paella Rice

We cooked up our first paella. Substituted octopus for squid, but it threw us off a bit, as we’ve never prepared octopus before, and it came up a bit rubbery. We have some room for improvement, but overall, it was quite tasty! And just how great is the packaging on this rice?!

Pichuberries

These caught my eye in the produce section at first glance, because of their color. I then noticed they hail from Colombia, as do my parents and many of my childhood summer memories. They are quite enjoyable. Mildy sweet and also a little tart. Like nature’s Sweattarts. They grow in a little thin husk like a tomatillo and are shaped like raspberry-sized blueberries. A fun discovery that I may not have made today if I weren’t on the lookout for something to paint.
