giada for target

Two things (of many things) that we do not buy in our family are store-bought tomato sauces and salad dressings. We’re kind of brats that way and prefer to make our own. Mother-forgive-me, but I can never resist great packaging from the beloved Tarjay and bought Giada’s Creamy Tomato Sauce and Raspberry Vinaigrette. I admit that I’m in love with this cheesy pasta sauce. I’d write more, but I have to get back to eating my pasta.

sf food carts

One lovely thing about teaching classes in the Mission is accidentally stumbling into food carts. SF is FULL of them and i’ve just started following a bunch of food carts so I can dart out at any minute for creme brulée, waffles, tacos, curry or sweets. Click here for SF food carts and here for a not-so-comprehensive list (but still helpful). Does anyone have favorites I have to try? Please comment below.

I’m heading out in the morning for waffles if anyone wants to meet me there!


nope, not from a food cart, but what i made last night cleaning out my fridge: halibut papillotte with tomato concassée topped with thyme, buttered/softened carrots and a splash of white wine. my favorite way to eat fish. please excuse the iphone pic and styling –i’d eaten 1/3 of it by the time i took the picture. ;)
