Summer BBQ in Berkeley

Call it laziness, call it preoccupation…we prefer to call it summer vacation. Yes loyal readers, all four of you (hi mom), we are back! Or at least we’re going to try to be…It’s August here in the greater bay area, which means Yuan and Little Miss are shrouded in fog and probably developing vitamin D deficiencies, while the Princess is roasting to a crisp in the scorching Central Valley. Thankfully we have great friends in Berkeley who let us take over their house and yard in exchange for grillables and a little manual labor in the garden!

Heirloom tomato caprese salad

Assorted grillables
