the weekend, pictorially


- Act 1 -
The SF Zoo!

Nothing like the San Diego Zoo (not many animals?! but we were forewarned). Still, it was a fun outing with cousins on a mercifully cool day. Jacky just had fun hangin' out and practicing walking.

- Act 2 -
Agave Workshop with Kristen

What a pretty entrance, and a few plant stunners:

So, after hanging out at FGG many of the recent weekends (backyard reconnoissance, not stalking), I finally purchased some plants. Who can turn down a 15% discount?? And, our front steps did need a little perk up. Here are my 3 new Agave friends: (clockwise from top left) Quadricolor, Rasta Man and Colorata:

Awesome bud imprint, dude :)
Yes, I'm a total nerd. Give me a little knowledge and I'm obnoxious.

- Act 3 -
Pizza of the week

Healthy and delicious: mozzarella, tuscan kale (a whole head, parboiled, then squeezed dry), oven-dried tomatoes, fresh cherry tomatoes, rosemary. This was really good... the oven-dried tomatoes responded well to even more oven time: they caramelized and blistered. The kale got all roasty. Probably would've been better with fontina instead, if I had it.

- Act 4 -
Oven-dried more tomatoes


What weekend fun did you have?
