Hmmm beautiful summer day in Los Angeles. It's is warm enough to be live in a bathing suit, but not so warm that we have to lock ourselves up with the air con full blast. Instead all the windows are open to let the breeze move thorough the house, the pool is at lagoon temperature, and there is nothing to do and nowhere to go since the freeway is temporarily off limit.
I'm loving Carmageddon. One, it allows me not to feel like a loser for not doing something glamourous over the week end. Two it is quiet, the air is clean and everyone is rediscovering their own neighborhoods. Yesterday we walked to the farmers market and stocked up on fantastic organic peaches and cherries. Today we're washing the car and doing some light gardening. I think there should be carmageddons once a month, at least.
I was going to make a clafouti but I found this amazing cake in Coco and Kelly (who happened to be blogging about their wonderful trip to Italy just to make me envious), and it's so beautiful -- the cake-- it seems to embody summer. Here are the picture but for the story and recipe, hop on to Apollina's blog.
The cake was inspired by a Stella McCartney dress or print (I don't know which one) I love this!
