Well hello everyone, Ian here! Christie and I have been so busy cooking, eating, taking photos and enjoying the nice weather that has come at last. So far this season, Christie and I have managed to get out to the Atwater Market, a local farmers market, twice. I absolutely love the Atwater market, I have fond memories of my mother taking me there to shop for fresh produce and meats when I was a child, and to this day I always use the same butcher that my mother would purchase her meats from. So on weekends, when it is nice out, Christie and I have been heading out there to get our fresh produce, and to enjoy all the beautiful flowers that are on sale this time of year.

Besides our weekly trips out to the market, Christie has been keeping up her wonderful “Supper Club” parties, which has just completed a successful fourth incarnation! Each one of the Supper Club get together follows a theme which Christie devises, the last one being “Breakfast for supper”. It went off wonderfully. Approximately 14-16 people show up, and there is a door charge of about 4-5$ depending on what is on the menu, which is a real steal if you ask me. The money covers the ingredients used, and Christie cooks enough food for 16 people each time, wooosh. Just as they were a big hit on the blog, the Eggs in a Basket were definitely a favorite. As a matter of fact, partially due to the fact that I ate prior to taking any pictures, and mostly due to the popularity and general deliciousness of each creation, I actually did not get the time to photograph each of the courses before they were gone, which made my camera sad. You know what they say though, what makes the camera sad only makes the belly happy, ok, I made that up.

Ive got to bug Christie to post the recipe that she used for the Cinnamon Buns (moved the photos up a post to go along with the recipe, and also so they arent doubled up), but for the Eggs in a Basket, see here for the recipe from a previous post. Stay tuned, Im finally buying myself a "Pro" account on Flikr, and will be posting all of the Flower pictures that I have been taking, notably the anticipated "Forget me nots" that Christie has been getting me to photograph every chance I get.
