Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you all for the encouragement about the sampler - I hope not to disappoint - I think I solved the border problem yesterday - I am charting the sampler to fit one of my old frames so there are some size constraints and I want to include lots and lots of stuff. I am having to cut many things... which says to me that there actually might be another "edgar sampler " in the future - who knows???
We made a stop down in the Mission to pick up some things - and of course I had my camera so I got some snaps to share -
We saw this new mural - or new to me, decorating the wall at this outdoor cafe - notice there is nobody outside enjoying the cold "sunshine." The wind was a howling and chilly.
Our favorite shop to get Latino foodstuffs now has a wall of great pickings - including some new bins of bulk things.....
... and a whole range of dried peppers - these bins a really amazing and quite beautiful.
Then it was over to "our" panderia for some treats....
these crunchy. sweet treats are usually gone by the time we make it there after work, but yesterday there was an entire new tray of them that had just been put in the case.
I just finished up a great little book called "Immoveable Feast" by John Baxter.
A true story of an Australian ex-pat living in Paris with his French wife - who takes on the cooking of the traditional Christmas dinner. A loved this little book - it has everything I like - true story, set in France - during the Christmas season. You follow him searching and gathering up the perfect bits and pieces for the dinner - with some great flashbacks to earlier Christmases. I would highly recommend this book.
There you go sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by - do come again!!
