Just back in the studio after travels to San Francisco, Yosemite, and Nashville. Everywhere we went we indulged in delicious food and drink—Dungeness crab, sand dabs, Hog Island oysters from Tomales Bay, rabbit cannelloni, Cowgirl Creamery’s Mt Tam cheese, and too many Jack Daniels cocktails. We came back to an empty fridge, so we pulled out a container of our bolognese from the freezer. Lunch was two fine plates of pasta. We ate by the fire with our feet on the hearth and one of us licked her plate clean. It sure feels good to be home.
