Russ, Paige, and I had a great day at the beach, eating out at the Bayside Cafe in Morro Bay, going for a walk on the beach, and stopping by the Los Osos Farmer's Market.
I love walking on the beach by Morro Rock in the early morning, collecting shells, but we didn't get to the beach until early afternoon, so I figured there wouldn't be any shells that hadn't been broken by all the people walking along. I found tons of tiny intact sand dollars though. How cute!
OK, I'm officially tired of knitting bunnies. I knit one more on a little trip to the beach on Monday. I'm pretty happy with him although I think his ears are too big. I'm not sure that I like him well enough to give as a gift though.
|cold roasted beet and cauliflower salad|
Russ bought some white beets at the Los Osos Farmer's Market, which he roasted this morning with a little olive oil and salt. I'm never that excited when he roasts beets during the sumer, which he loves to do, since it heats up the house, but these beets were really good. I thought that roastd beet salad sounded perfect, so I looked for a recipe. i ended up just improvising. To the roasted beets, I added some steamed cauliflower, and basil, thyme, and cherry tomatoes from my garden. Then I poured a vinaigrette of olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the mixture, and finished off with some grated cheddar cheese and some Murray River salt, Oh, and then I mixed that in with three cups of couscous. Pretty yummy!
