Very old Skippy jar!

Someone had kept her cream of wheat in it (the recipe was taped to the jar).

"Umami (people + food)"

Check out this dinner party I went to Sunday night. Fifteen dollars for a six-course meal with three cocktails on a rooftop in Bushwick with friends, strangers, and semi-strangers.


Homemade pickle plate
Green gazpacho and cornbread
Homemade sweet corn ravioli
Frittata, kale, and bruschetta
Flourless chocolate cake


Cucumber-mint Gibson
White sangria
Blackberry vodka slush puppy

Good people + good food = good times!


He'll wear this, but he won't wear this awesome prize ribbon I made for him!

Hmm, maybe because white equals third place?
