Today’s Aesop fable and quasi political statement brought to you by a trip to the @davisfarmersmarket ... A Fox one day spied a beautiful bunch of ripe grapes hanging from a vine trained along the branches of a tree. The grapes seemed ready to burst with juice, and the Fox's mouth watered as he gazed longingly at them. The bunch hung from a high branch, and the Fox had to jump for it. The first time he jumped he missed it by a long way. So he walked off a short distance and took a running leap at it, only to fall short once more. Again and again he tried, but in vain. Now he sat down and looked at the grapes in disgust. "What a fool I am," he said. "Here I am wearing myself out to get a bunch of sour grapes that are not worth gaping for." And off he walked very, very scornfully. ....There are many who pretend to despise and belittle that which is beyond their reach . . . . .#grapeseason#grapes🍇 #grapes#yolocounty#farmersmarkets#sacfoodies#sacfoodie#tablegrapes#instafood#sacramentoeats#daviseats#eattherainbow
Have you ever had a “slump”? It’s an old school dessert that is particularly useful on hot days when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen with the oven. You put berries, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon in a pot, bring to a simmer, plop biscuit dough on top, cover the pot and cook, letting the biscuits steam up like dumplings. Serve with a little cream to cut the tartness of the berries. I’m so not ready for summer to end. Flip flops and shorts every day. ☺️ Haven’t managed to go berry picking yet. Is there still time?
Picture this...a ginormous inflated white unicorn raft with rainbow wings (didn’t know unicorns had wings, so not onto current unicorn 🦄 lore), with a head and horn that has sadly deflated due to a slow leak. It sort of looks like a floating dead white rainbow dragon. Could any of you resist climbing into one of those??? Could you? I couldn’t. Hanging out in #Annisquam at high tide. The water is cold but the sun 🌞 is warm and the unicorn is just the best pool toy EVER. . . . . #lastdayofvacation#lastdayofvacay#unicorngoals#unicornlove🦄 #unicornparty#dancelikenooneswatching
