RED BUTTE BOTANIC GARDENS – PARK CITY UTAH

Hubby and I went to Park City, Utah again last month. We went to Red Butte Botanic Gardens, which is a nice place to see the fall colors. It seemed dryer than the last time we were in Utah, but it was still pretty.

this could be in the hills around Los Angeles!

I think this is a Golden Eagle! Note the yellow beak and legs.

FUNKY TOMATO

Yesterday I went to the local farmers market and picked up some heirloom tomatoes. I bought the tomato below just because it looked so weird, like some funky tomato monster is hatching out of it. The last photo has Squeaky in it.

A LIFETIME OF POLKADOTS

I was in Palm Springs last month and came across the Louis Vuitton store that had a window display by Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who is obsessed with polkadots, repeating patterns, and intense colors. Here’s an example of the display with Yayoi Kusama in the middle (can you believe she’s in her 80’s?):

Unfortunately I can’t afford anything from the collaboration line between Vuitton and Kusama. I just wish I could have some of those polkadot tentacles from the window display!

Here is a retrospective video from the Tate museum that shows highlights from her work:

COOKING APPETIZERS FROM ROYS

I took a cooking class at Roy’s Hawaiian Restaurant in Pasadena this past weekend. I LOVE Roy’s. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. I was so excited I just kept grinning before class started. We made appetizers at this class. It was my first cooking class at Roy’s, but I’ll definitely take classes there in the future.

This is an acorn squash salad with arugula and pomegranate seeds with a pomegranate dressing. It was really good. It’s vegetarian, and if you brown the squash with olive oil instead of butter it can be vegan.

Here’s a chicken curry salad with apples and mango. I usually don’t like putting fruit with meat, but it was really good. finely diced chicken, apples, and mango, with curry mayonnaise. Yum!

Scallop ceviche. I didn’t try this because I don’t like scallops or avocado.

Here’s some shrimp lumpia (egg rolls) with bean sprouts and diced veggies. They were really good. The sous chef made a sweet and spicy chili sauce to go with them. I wish I had the recipe for that.

Here’s some of Roy’s famous short ribs. We didn’t cook these, because it takes a long time to make, but the sous chef teaching the class made some plus some steamed veggies so we could eat them for lunch along with our appetizers.

I DON’T WANT TO GET MY TOES WET

This is a Wall Street Journal photo of the day. I should get a water buffalo for the kitties to ride around on. 

Or I could get a mini donkey!!

Or a puppy.
