Pie and More Pie

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've been obsessed with pie lately. I met up with some friends at the Rite Spot again the past two Fridays for pie and cocktails.... two Greyhounds and cherry pie constitutes a well balanced dinner, no?

This tasty looking knit pie came off of a blog but did not list a credit for who made this luscious creation...

I do know who created this cherry blueberry pie...I made it this weekend for a girls' day in. I forgot how a pain it is to create a lattice top pie....it does look lovely, but man, does it take patience!!

Apparently, Britain's Royal Opera is running out of ideas because they will be presenting an Anna Nicole Smith opera ....wtf....
Clearly, they are scraping the bottom of the artistic barrel...
In other news
, if you are looking for a good and quirky piece of entertainment- check out The Lab's upcoming performances of the Case of the Streetwalking Streetwalker, directed by Adam Ansell. When I was still working as the Lab's Co-Director, Adam directed a great play 10 Lanes Pizza Bowl, which I loved. Hope you will check it out!

Eat Your Veggies

I came across this cool organization, MyFarm - they grow fruits and veggies in urban backyards in San Francisco, and distribute the food via typical CSA (community supported agriculture) style. So, if you have space in your yard but don't have the time/aptitude/energy to grow your own food- just contact MyFarm and their experienced gardeners will plant and tend them for you! In exchange for your space, you will get a box of produce each time there is a harvest. Pretty nifty!

And I guess since we're talking about veggies...I made this scrumptious pumpkin pecan pie this weekend (I've been fairly obsessed with pie lately...). I mostly followed this recipe from 101Cookbooks but used pecans instead of hazelnuts. I even used low fat coconut milk, and it was satisfying but not gut busting. Not a bad way to eat your veggies!

Meow + Art

I discovered S.O.F.A. a few minutes ago...that stands for Society of Feline Artists.
Who knew such an organization existed? I didn't realize there were THAT MANY artists who are obsessed with painting cats....now don't get me wrong..I'm a cat lover, and an art lover, but I don't often mesh the two together. But to each their own...here is some art by some of S.O.F.A.'s members:
This is Home Comforts by Jacqueline A. Gaylard.....

Lierre by Nicole Jahan...

And they host an exhibition every year featuring loads of cat art. And here's one last bit of, um, interesting cat art (courtesy of Kool-Kats.com)! Meow, everyone....
