Hello Everyone!   I spent a few hours on Monday in Oregon at our family farm/infant vineyard and I couldn't help but notice that the layer of gloomy fog and mist over the fields and vines matched my internal weather. The previous Monday I had been in Las Vegas with my family, having a lovely celebratory weekend with some of the people I love the most in the world. I'm not sure how you make sense of senselessness, or try to hold ephemeral things like luck or love (or the lack of those things) in your hand, but sometimes I feel...

Hello Everyone! It's another beautiful week in Olympia - sunshine and summertime!  At this point we're pretty much exclusively using our outdoor grill for cooking... making extras of our proteins to carry us through the next day's lunch and such. Between the grill, our weekly local veggie box, and the rotating pitchers of sun tea on our patio we are fully invested in summertime eating.

All the Fishy News! March 29, 2017

Hello Everyone! Did we all see the little clip about our fair Olympia on King5 this morning? I was happy to see that it featured one of our new favorite places to visit - the 222 Market building and our shellfish growing friends at Chelsea Farms. We really love having such an excellent oyster bar so close to us, and Pantry (thanks for wearing our shirt, Kevin!), Fluerae and Sofie's Scoops (Sailor's favorite!) are becoming great regular places to find amazing things, too. The only place we haven't actually purchased something from is the bone broth spot - if you've had...
