From Where We Stand: Our Weekend in Photos

July 27, 2015

A glimpse into our editors' lives: Here's how the world looks from where we stand.

Today: Legos, the Bloody Mary bar of our dreams, and pet grass.

The result of the most amazing build-your-own Bloody Mary bar I've ever seen, paired with a veggie reuben and fries. —Lindsay-Jean

At the end of an incredibly fun (exhausting) weekend, my boyfriend and I managed to pull together a delicious dinner to top it off: roast chicken thighs, Gabrielle Hamilton's carbonara out of her cookbook Prune, and a Boston lettuce salad with a Dijon-honey-red wine vinegar dressing. (And a bottle of wine, of course.) —Leslie



I made out like a bandit at this Saturday's photo shoot: these flowers, garlic scapes, and inside the bag? Blueberry Schlumpf, Summer Weekend Pasta, and cheese. —Ali

This was the first weekend I saw melons at the greenmarket! The cantaloupes smelled the sweetest, but the watermelons matched my shirt. —Caroline


Pet grass

I already have a cat, and I don't want a dog, so I decided to go for this instead. —Sarah

Among other things . . . . "Tartine Bread" Polenta Bread (standard country sourdough + polenta, chopped rosemary and toasted pumpkin seeds - one of my best breads, ever); small dinner party out on our deck, at which my son served this Genius guacamole on grilled artisanal bread (a batard baked by me, not the polenta bread); hikes in the nearby Redwood Forest; lots of pickles canned; and my eagerly-awaited, always-enjoyed Sunday morning farmers' market trip:
Prather sausages on the grill were outstanding.
