in the city :: instagram

According to instagram, it looks like there was a lot of eating going on the past few weeks!

There’s some breathing room in the calendar, so we are getting ready to finish painting the apartment and finally getting some art up on the walls. Will spend the next few days catching up on emails, hosting family in town, and maybe making some pickles? I’ve had canning on my mind ever since picking up this book at Powell’s. <- Why is it called canning when everything is done in jars?

Psst! Thanks to Phanie for the kale chip recipe. These things are addictive!
