I'm sure many of you have heard of the fires that have been raging in Southern California. We live in north Orange County, less than 5 miles from several of the fires. Thankfully, both our families are safe, both in person and homes. However, the weather is hot, dry, and windy and we've had ash raining on us the last couple days. We're praying for rain - or at least double digit humidity - and cooler weather. The firefighters have been amazing.  

Anyway, given the weather (90 degrees in the middle of November is NOT reasonable!) and the perpetual smell of smoke (seriously - like sitting in a fire pit for two days straight) I've not been doing much cooking. If I remember my card reader I'll have something for you tomorrow. 

Hope you are all safe and sound and enjoying cooler weather than we are. Peace.

Stay safe....those fires have been all over the news. I can't imagine how scary it must be!


I live in the San Gabriel Valley and we had such a time breathing yesterday. Can't imagine what it's like where you are. Can't wait to smell fresh air again.

Seriously? Dinner in 15 at Lily's house? Is that 15 hours? :)
