This weekend was a reminder of a lot of things. That the Bay Area isn’t exempt from the effects of climate change.

That Lana is at such an enjoyable age, despite the seven times a day she basically tells me to STFU. On Friday, my in-laws and I scooped up the bug and took her to the beach (where the water was still characteristically ice-cold despite the 90-degree temps), and suddenly this little girl emerged before my eyes, all legs and sandy bottom and wispy mullet.

Rich and silky with spicy warmth and that mouth-watering sea salt? Bomb. Three: No-bake ramekin food FTW. Huevos con Soyrizo with Two-Potato Hash You caught me.
