Inspiring Food & Inspiring Links

This has been a frequent dinner of ours recently. We are still in possession of our old Sonoma garden, so when we go over there to spruce it up for showing and open houses, we dig up a few potatoes and cut off a few artichokes. Sometimes artichokes from our new garden get added. I steam them all together in one pot. An easy dinner when you are wiped out from a day of unpacking and chicken coop building (more on that another day).
Within hours of finding out from very reliable sources that we do indeed have rhubarb on our hands, it was cut and baked into a pie with some local strawberries. It was divine! Were the temperatures not going to be soaring tomorrow, I would make another one right away.
When visiting the Saturday farmers market at the Community Center (if you live locally, stop by this summer and pick up a bottle of olive oil, profits go to the boy’s school), we spied that Mike the bejkr was putting some bread with eggs into his mobile oven. Inspiration! We made some of our own. So delicious!

I also wanted to share a little inspiration that I’ve seen around the world wide web recently:

Have you been inspired by anything on the web lately?

  1. I love those eggs with bread. My mom used to make them often when we were kids. She called them eggs in a nest. It really is delicious.

  2. The bread with eggs idea is one my mother (now 90) did for me as a child, I made them for my kids, my daughter introduced them to her boyfriend’s family and now I have introduced them to our Ecuadorian housekeeper. We call them “Bulls Eyes”, or as Monica says.. Ojos de Toro! Yum Yum!

  3. Those were fun links! Oh how I love Alicia’s garden/retreat! I’m sure your new garden will be beautiful. Living in Sonoma you just can’t help it.

  4. I’m off to make some and eggs and bread now. Thanks for the links, I want Alicia’s garden on this our winter solstice day.

  5. thanks for sharing the gorgeous pics, and look forward to checking out the links. but for now you have me craving artichokes. thank goodness you can still access the other garden!

  6. Hi there, for several years the Jack London Bookstore had a rooster in the store all day long, and I believe there was a cat in there too. I always loved that!
