It’s Monday





It’s been such a dry February here in the Bay Area. Not good for us as it’s supposed to be the rainy season.

Had dinner at Dog Haus and I fell in love with their Thai Fighter which has a super spicy sausage with arugula, a spicy basil pesto, and pickled jalapeños. Delicious.

Made some baguettes too. Will be putting up a post later this week.




I’m typing this out while (painfully) helping the 6yo with piano practice.



A Song for a New Day – Sarah Pinsker

I’m loving this dystopian read with a music focus.




Season 3 of The Chef Show. I really enjoy the Roy Choi-Jon Favreau collaboration.


Five Days at Memorial – Sheri Fink

Not an easy one to listen to


I made steel cut oatmeal for breakfast


Nespresso with milk


Japchae or Korean sweet potato noodles probably with sliced beef and lots of vegetables like carrots, cabbage, mushrooms

Last week:

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date
