The weekend, briefly

This weekend didn't turn out how I had planned and ended up being fairly stressful. But there were little moments here and there that were really lovely.

A quick trip to the farmer's market yielded fresh eggs, strawberries and cheap freesia (flower season is really getting going!). 

We were ready to eat at a completely awkward time on Sunday evening and took advantage of it to slip into Milo and Olive before the crowds hit. The garlic knot was totally worth it, even though I was afraid to get too close to anyone for the rest of the evening, lest I knock them out with my breath.

    1. I definitely will be attempting to recreate the garlic knot at home - if I'm successful, you guys will hear about it!

      The concept is really simple. I'm pretty sure they pre-roast the garlic cloves whole in a lot of good olive oil and then just bundle them up in some pizza dough. I just need to figure out what dough works best for it.

  7. I went to Milo & Olive last time I was in LA in Feb! It was amazing and I'm still wishing that there was one in Chicago. You can see my pics from my dinner at M&O here: http://glorioffood.com/2012/02/22/city-of-angels/

  12. I love how beautifully you're able to capture so many moments of your life. Do you ever feel awkward taking your camera to restaurants and such? I have once or twice but felt so self-conscious! I wish I could get over it.

    1. Ha! I actually rarely photograph in restaurants for this reason. Way too awkward. But every once in a while I'll grab a quick shot. My only rules are that it can't interrupt the meal and I won't go out of my way to get the right camera angle (no getting out of my seat!). If I can't get a decent (stealthy) photo in a few seconds, I just give up. I don't want to ruin the moment too much.

  15. The garlic knot looks delicious. We usually back garlic in the oven with some olive oil and THEN we spread it on fresh bread...if we have it. This knot solves the missing bread problem! Cannot wait to read the recipe.
