Dress Well: A Day in the Headlands

Yesterday we, along with some friends, seized the beautiful day and ventured to the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge for an outdoor barbecue in the Marin Headlands. We expected to be greeted by warm, sunny weather on the other side - after all, it was 70 degrees and beautifully sunny in SF. Unfortunately, the Bay Area fog decided to greet us instead. That wasn't a problem, though - I turned the picnic blanket I had packed into a makeshift coat. Despite the unexpectedly gray weather, we had a blast. We're already planning to go back soon (next time hopefully on a sunny day!).

Also, my lovely friend Renee threw this braid in my hair before we set off for the picnic (remember her amazing skills from this post?). I'm so impressed by how well this braid held up despite me clobbering it with my blanket-coat all afternoon - Renee is just the best!










I hope all of you guys had wonderful weekends, too - now go have a great week!

Eat Well: Ribs


This recipe is an absolute staple in my "food used when entertaining" repertoire. When my coworkers and I put together a potluck last weekend, I knew I needed to represent Texas cooking in a big way. These ribs were the perfect way to do it - they taste like I slow-cooked them for hours while only requiring a little over an hour of my time. Between these babies and the queso my husband whipped up for the occasion, I think everyone got a very enjoyable taste of Texas.



Here are a few pictures of what my culinarily-inclined coworkers made - I bet you wish you had been at this potluck!
