Berry Good Night 2014

It was such an honor to be invited to Berry Good Night 2014. Hosted by Michelle and Bill Lerach in La Jolla, CA. This was a fabulous dinner featuring local chefs, eco enthusiasts, farmers, healthy little foodies and high profile friends of the community gather to talk about food sustainability (me and the boss represented Whole Foods Market La Jolla). Over 300 people were in attendance, and it really was the “scene” on June 21st. The setting and the estate it was on was beyond breath-taking. And one take-away I had from it was…”Food sustainability is not just a hippie-dippy thing anymore….it’s a lifestyle.” I will certainly remember this night forever. My pictures don’t nearly tell the story – but you can get the gist.

Save Your Fingers!

So, I had a little mishap with my mandolin slicer last night. I was cutting up a zucchini to throw on the grill – while thinking about carpooling to work and what I should pack for lunch tomorrow – and BOOM sliced 2 of my fingers. Major ouchie. No hospital was needed but my house was a crime scene for a bit.

This is my PSA for the day – DO NOT USE A MANDOLIN SLICER WITHOUT THE SAFETY GUARD!!

Lovely SLO

I’m so lucky I got to experience the beautiful town of San Luis Obispo! The foodie scene is hopping, so many great little places, friendly people, and so much love all around! It feels like Encinitas on crack. Even though it was indeed a work trip, I made it out of my hotel to explore a bit. Here are some pictures!
