There are a lot of farmers' markets here in LA. If you can remember, which I can't always, there is a market every day of the week for you get your fill of goodies. Some are small with just 10-15 stalls, but they're still pretty good. Others, like the Saturday morning market in Calabasas, is on another level in terms of size and selection. There were literally three booths of organic salt lined up next to each other. And the same goes for the produce, spice rubs, bakeries, and local businesses.

It's Labor Day Weekend and we're visiting our family! It's recently become an annual event for any family member that can to come home for Labor Day. Since moving a year ago, I haven't had much time with my siblings and their families in northern California, so I'm really looking forward to it. And T's mom is coming as well. I'm planning on a huge eating and swimming fest! I think we're having fajitas for my birthday dinner and I haven't picked out my dessert, but something like the Triple Layer Berry Lemon Cake below sounds just like me!
Wishing you all a great Labor Day Weekend!

Have you heard of salad pizzas? I've seen them on menus and there's even a restaurant nearby that specializes in salad pizzas. I don't know how one can specialize in such a easy combination of things, but who am I to complain. I never really thought of doing it until we made pizza last week and I found myself scooping the salad with balsamic vinaigrette onto my pizza. And so the homemade salad pizza was born!
