Happy Friday! We went blueberry picking with some friends, and picked ourselves about 10 pounds of blueberries. Our friends picked nearly twenty pounds! It was a lovely day and not too insanely hot. I told Julia she couldn't wear a tank top because I didn't want to deal with all that sunscreening, and when her pals showed up in tank tops, guess who was in biiiiiig trouble? (me) Cough. But now we're set with at least two pies worth, a crisp, two batches of muffins at least, blueberry pancake material AND extra for eating plain. We are SET for blueberries.
Julia just told me about jelly flower lipsticks. Also, my kid is now telling me about new cool stuff online. WOW.

Cool Book of the Week: 'Fanny in France' by culinary legend Alice Waters is coming this autumn and I can't wait to see it in person! I'm a huge Alice Waters fan, I own several of her cookbooks and I adored her first storybook/cookbook for children, 'Fanny at Chez Panisse', which was based on her daughter's experiences growing up around Alice's famous Chez Panisse restaurant. In this newest book, Fanny goes to France, and learns about French cuisine, and has adventures in Bordeaux, Provence and the Pyrenees mountains. (Sheep! Making cheese! Feeding nine people with one chicken!) The art is the same charming style and I might be thinking hard about this one as a holiday gift next Christmas for Julia, who is loving all things cooking-related these days.
