The spinach I used among salads. The lemon I actually still have, but it will stay… (more)

Boston 2014

We had a chance to go back and stay in Boston for 5 nights and attend my good friends’ wedding! Thanks to Jenn and Dan for getting married in the New England Aquarium so I could use their event as an excuse to come back to Boston. The weather was pretty nice the whole time we were there, and we enjoyed walking and running along the Charles and through the city. I enjoyed Dunks everyday,… (more)

Box from Oct. 9

1lb Russian Banana Potato 1 spaghetti squash 1lb red onions 2 Bartlett pears 1 bunch rainbow carrots 2 Gala apples 1 bag black grapes 1 head of lettuce As usual the grapes, apples, pears, and carrots were all eaten raw. I really love that I don’t have to buy those things at the store anymore, honestly. The lettuce went into salads, another item I enjoy not having to pick up at the grocery store. That… (more)

Montara Mountain Hike

In our efforts to get back into hiking and somewhat prepare for Peru we decided to do a nice 7 mile loop today up to Montara Mountain, about an 1800 ft gain. It was a very pleasant hike, and we chose a great day to do it in terms of weather. It was a gentle but steady uphill on the way to the peak, and a delightful downhill all the way back to the car….

Visiting Jeremy

Last weekend Eric and I had the chance to drive down to Pasadena and visit with our good friend Jeremy and his fiancee Alessandra. They’ve lived out here for a ¬†year and this was the first chance we had been able to see them so it was very exciting. I especially enjoyed getting to share so many of our college stories about Jeremy with Alessandra. On our first full day there we took a little… (more)

Box from Sep. 25

1lb sweet potato 2 Bartlett pears 1 box kiwiberries 1 bulb fennel 2 Red Bartlett pears 2 Gala apples 1 bunch Lacinato Kale 1 bag black grapes This was a very tasty box. All the fruit went quickly, and the apples arrived just in time for Rosh Hashana. I was able to enjoy them with some local honey from Eric’s coworker and a pomegranate off of my backyard tree (this is also why there is… (more)

Box from Sept. 11

Box box box. 1 bunch rainbow carrots 1 pound green beans 2 Bartlett pears 2 Gala apples 2 black plums 1 Hass avocado 1 Keitt mango 1 bag of red grapes Most this box was readily snackable, and I did so.

Box from Aug. 28

Man, I’ve been slacking on these boxes. Here is the last box I received. 1 bunch broccoli 1 bunch celery 1 bag red grapes 1 pound red potatoes 1 cucumber 2 yellow nectarines 2 bartlett pears The (roasted) potatoes and (steamed) broccoli went alongside our usual chicken/fish dinner, but I forgot to take a photo. Everything else was just eaten as you may expect. The end. Since I have so little to share here, maybe… (more)

Disney & Dunks

Our anniversary this year sort of seemed to span 2 weekends. I guess that’s what happens when it’s in the middle of the week. In addition to spending last weekend on the coast, we had a nice dinner out to a wonderful Italian restaurant on our actual anniversary and exchanged gifts that night. The third anniversary is leather so we had gotten each other leather gifts. I got Eric a leather and glass case to… (more)

We celebrated our third anniversary a bit early this year since the holiday weekend was so early. We had booked 2 nights at a coastal resort called Costanoa, staying in a tent cabin that was a little different than anything else we had done. It had a heated blanket, which was awesome and appreciated. We actually started the weekend with a familiar bike ride to our favorite beach spot, though this was the first time… (more)
