I thawed out some nice Opah that I got from our local fish monger at Catalina Offshore. My plan was to grill it up on the BBQ tonight, but then I realized I just wanted a nice hearty stew instead because it's cold outside and I don't even want to go out there! Fish chowder it is!
I diced up the thawed fish (about 2 cups) and seasoned well. Read more about Easy Spicy Fish Chowder
My husband and I parked in front of Tomales Bay Foods to meet up with the West Marin Food & Farm Tour. For those of you who don't know where Marin County is, it's north of San Francisco on a unique strip of land jutting out westward. Although we had stellar weather earlier in the weekend, the dark, heavy sky for the day looked foreboding. Of course in my attempt to pack light, I only had one pair of black suede boots, because hey...those will hold up in the goopy mud if it rains. We spotted the white tour van and went over to say hello. Read more about How the West (Marin) Was Won (By Women!)

My daughter comes home from school and will often spend a great deal of time telling me what the kids have at school that is 'cool'. Right now I hear a lot about backpacks, scarves, blue hair and water bottles! Kids who have water bottles that infuse fruit are apparently very cutting-edge, so I was pretty excited to have the opportunity to review the Forever Fruit Infusion Water bottle. It's very well-made and is made from a shatterproof BPA-FREE plastic, although I haven't thrown it on the floor for testing. I'm fairly certain it will get dropped in the natural course of life anyway. The bottle is super easy to use and we loved the fact that you can open in from both the top and bottom.

Toosum.com, a Seattle based company, sent me a few samples of their gluten-free oatmeal bars to try. I received Blueberry & Greek Yogurt, Cherry & Plum and Coconut & Banana. All super delicious for adults and kids alike. Read more about Toosum Gluten-Free Oatmeal Bars Review
Several years ago, I threw a big bash for my Dad's 70th birthday. I wanted to do something nice to celebrate this milestone birthday, so we did a wine and cheese tasting party. As I shopped for plates, I realized that we couldn't have large round plates as they were too big and I was going to cram a lot of people on picnic style farm tables. I was also not excited about doing plasticware. Read more about Vintage Luncheon Plates As Cheese Platters
