Colin made these long boxes (design from our friend Steve Storm) out of old fence boards. They reside on the long tables and they are normally filled with succulents. I added pumpkins, eucalyptus, moss, and twigs for fall.
Even though our house and yard are in disarray I usually find time to cook. My dad likes to go to the Salinas Farmers Market so I used the yummy tomatoes and basil from my favorite vendor and whipped up a favorite of Steve’s Mac and Cheese.
4 ounces thick-sliced bacon
2 cups gemelli
1½ cups milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated
3 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar, grated
2 ounces blue cheese, such as Roquefort, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
l basket heirloom cherry tomatoes
1 bunch fresh basil
If you are indulging in Mac and Cheese you have to eat a healthy salad, right? For this simple salad, I use a bag of the mixed greens from the Farmers Market and fresh strawberries. I make a dressing (that is hard to beat) with these two ingredients (I kid you not) and salt and pepper.
I belong to the Pasolivo club. This is not a paid post. I absolutely LOVE their olive oils. You can use this Sparkling Citrus Vinegar with any of their Citrus Olive Oils with just salt and pepper and make the most amazing dressing.
Happy Fall and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed your comments on my trend post. You guys really make my day. I will be back on Friday with a Fashion Post. Have a great week! I so enjoy your comments!!
