Thank you Kristen for Catching Up and taking beautiful photos of the past week’s meals.  

The past few days in my world have been a bit nutty.  First, it was my birthday, then it was the 4th of July and we threw a dinner party for 21 people, during this time there was a BART strike – which resulted in everyone being on extended holiday Friday, which was a good coincidence because for half the day Comcast internet was down, which meant nobody could really get any work done anyway.  By the end of Friday the internet was back up, the BART was back on track, and all seemed back to normal. . .until Saturday morning when a jetliner crashed at the San Francisco Airport.  What does any of this have to do with what I ate for dinner?  I don’t know but it has a lot to do with why I haven’t posted with regularity lately, because nothing has been normal.

Yesterday I spent most of the day finishing cleaning up from the 4th of July Dinner Party Extravaganza.  We have been nibbling on Charlie’s remains for days.  At the end of the day cooking seemed like taking 20-steps backward, so we opted to go to TOAST for dinner.  Of all the delicious dishes the white sea bass with miso cucumber dressing was most exciting to me.  

Friday night we took the girls to see “Despicable Me 2” in 3D, which had Olivia in stitches.   For dinner they ate popcorn and we ate leftover Charlie with a sides of spinach and tomatoes, totally GF and Paleo.  Here are some pics for fun.  I included a pic of the 4th of july dessert.  Blueberries, Strawberries dressed in lime and mint with a pinch of sugar and whipped cream.  Red, White and Blue, not to mention GF.
