We are officially mid-Summer! ( I know everyone is talking Fall.) In some places, school has already begun. We don’t start until after labor day here in the Pacific Northwest.
Today is going to be glorious and HOT! I call a morning like this, “a California morning”.
On this morning, I captured a few images of a wall in our kitchen and made a photo collage. Yes, those are Chrislyn and Jay’s kindergarten hand prints. They have had their place in my kitchen since they were carried home in a backpack. I have moved them here and there. They presently look very cute hanging from black and creamy white stripe ribbons held up with my favorite burnished brass tacks on the cork board.
Mr D and I share the pegs below . . .( his BBQ tools on the right ) . . . our perfect little his and hers not necessarily contrived vignette.

The other day, at lunch, I was clicking . . .
Searching . . .
I landed on an “error message” that gifted me . . . this!
French bread . . . parfait!
Since it hadn’t a name . . . I named it!

Slice a baguette.
Lay a piece of cho-co-lat on top.
Place in a 350 degree oven ( or on the grill ) until it melts.
Sprinkle with olive oil and sea salt!
