This week in photos

I can't wait to see what my dahlias do as it gets cooler. Isn't this just the perfect flower?

I love our neighborhood. We won't live here forever, but I'm glad we're here now.

I know, I'm obsessed with insects on flowers. No Photoshopping this time, though.

Every day this week I made a different batch of quinoa with whatever was in the fridge. Today's used onion, apple, parsley, and lemon.

Pretty in peach.

I need to get a glass bottle and start collecting these for pepper vinegar.

Check out the moon over Rosslyn. The other night I sat outside and watched it in awe. (click for a bigger picture)

 This weekend, I'm going to think about how to transition the garden into the fall season. It's supposed to be gorgeous... sunny, breezy, highs in the low '80s. Come to mama! What are your plans?


  1. Love the dahlias for sure!

    I love quinoa because it cooks so fast! Its a nice alternative to couscous. Try adding some tomatillo, basil and cheese if you have it. That was a very successful flavor pairing that I came up with when trying to diversify my tomatillo usage! Also, I have this South American breakfast quinoa recipe that is to die for... sort of like a hot, milky pudding--but full of protein from the quinoa (and the milk I guess). I'll have to transcribe it and send it to you.

  2. Holy cow! Is that your view?!?!? Dying of jealousy right now. Dying.

  3. I do the same thing, only I alternate between quinoa and lentils, because the squiggly things in quinoa freak me out in a very real way.

  4. I'm pretty sure dahlias are my favorite flower but then spring comes and peonies take over. But that's a little too blogger of me isn't it? Those in your garden are so lovely.

  5. love quinoa. great idea to add whatever you have in the fridge. one time I made it with apples, cranberries, pecans and orange zest: great for breakfast.

    and yes, I saw mussels on the menu at Againn: I'm just sad I could not order 4 different dishes ;)

  6. I love the dahlias! The portrait picture of your neighborhood is really nice.


C'mon, make my day...
