Summer 2012 Garden

The Zucchini are plentiful and I hope to add green beans to the harvest. Our weather has been mostly cold and so the tomato harvest is smaller in size and quantity. So far only 2 medium sized egg plants but I see two more growing so there is hope for a ratatouille in a week or so.
Newest appliance used in cooking has been my Benriner Mandolin to slice zucchini paper thin (great on pizzas)
Thank you Alexandra's Kitchen for the video on how to use a mandolin safely and for writing about the book Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg, M.D., and Zoe Fran├žois

Surfing at Manhattan Beach

Just had to share these pictures of the quick trip we took to Southern California with our grandsons. The two objectives were to give the boys a day at The California Great Adventure and body surf at Manhattan Beach and at Huntington Beach. Should say that our objective was to have time with the boys. Was a great trip!
