an olive-pistachio quick bread (not as tasty as I'd hoped):
Latin Kale from my super-fav Longevity Cookbook by Rebecca Katz (fantastic):
a fresh pickly thing only I liked!:
a bean-kale-nut-winter squash dish (just okay):
a Mesoamerican-ish dish with summer squash (you can tell we're sort-of between seasons here), with roses my husband had just brought home; I served the food with a favorite avocado toast inspired by Gwenyth Paltrow's It's All Good (I just spread out a softish avocado half onto a piece of toasted seed bread and top it with balsamic reduction and finishing salt and pepper):
homemade granola, my favorite sweeter one (I just posted the recipe at http://favoritefoodthisweek.blogspot.com/2014/09/my-favorite-homemade-sweeter-and.html ):

...and one more cup of tea.
