For breakfast today I prepared these quite tasty strawberry pancakes. Something about making pancakes with fresh in season fruit that makes them taste that much better. I actually made the strawberry syrup for them as well.
This time for dinner I decided to plate the food in a tribute to Italy, hence the colors. This is a gorgonzola spinach ravioli along side a simple marinara I made. The marinara is so easy and tasty more people should make it at home rather than buying jarred sauce.
Lunch today consisted of this awesome tex-mex/southwestern dish. Grilled salmon on top of chipotle mashed potatoes with a grilled vegetable pineapple salsa. I washed it down with a red sangria. Too bad I cannot eat more often like this. LOL
While out for lunch today I had to get a photo of the dessert. It was much more visually appealing than the meal itself. This dessert was vanilla bean ice cream on top of a chocolate fudge brownie. Then drizzled on top was a chocolate sauce and a dulce de leche sauce. Decadent!!!
Today I had the pleasure and privilege to go to the Annenburg Space for Photography. This is a place in which there is free admission to a variety of photography exhibits. World reknowned photographers give lectures each week and on this day they had the Photograhers of the Year works on display. Many were disheartening and breath taking because they were photo journalistic.
Today I was given a lesson on the value of serving beer in the proper glass. This was a hefeweisen from a micro-brewery in Pasadena. It was complex and had nice citrus notes to it. Also it has to be served in a pilsner glass.
