365 DAYS IN MY KITCHEN: 237 + 238

First, let me say that I fell deep into vacation mode in July. It was lovely spending time with family, traveling and celebrating the in-laws 50th wedding anniversary! Thus my sparse posting the last few weeks. I'm back now and working away. Hope everyone here is having a good summer.guava / monica loos


Such deliciousness in such a little package. I made this image using a drawing app on my ipad. The 13 second, sped-up video of the process can be seen on my Instagram feed.

365_152 El Mango

There are more mango portraits in my future. Next time, I will not start at 10:30PM, but today has been one of those days.

Maybe a Hannah? Regardless, I slightly favored the one on the right and both would make for excellent sweet potato pancakes.

365_1010 Popcorn

Not sure what to say about popcorn other than if you are a mircowave popcorn eater, I urge you to pop a batch at home straight from the kernel. You won't turn back. It's kind of like going from "baby carrots" to peeling your own carrots: night and day.

365_109 Banana Coins

Really it's just sliced banana, but when our boys were little (well, littler), my husband would call these "banana coins" because it's just more fun to eat coins, isn't it? I dunno. I did used to love those little chocolate coins when I was little...
