This morning we used up the extra shredded zucchini we had after making zucchini bread and made Zucchini Latkes!
Finally harvested some plums! And so it is time to make Zwetschgendatschi, a plum cake / tort I very much enjoy from my German heritage. It’s basically a sweet, sugary/ buttery, pizza dough with plums sprinkled in sugar on top =)

So the afternoons are unbearable hot in the apartment. I tend to drop my things, make a blueberry smoothie (with banana and coconut milk) and head down to director’s park to decompress and get some things done. Generally I don’t get much done.

this week purslane with rice and artichokes with butter!

Went up Red Mountain in the Indian Heaven Wilderness area a few weeks ago. Up at the watch tower I was playing with the camera a while. This is one thing that resulted from that play.
