To prepare for the upcoming 2015 season, T & X hit the indoor batting cages at
Beach City Baseball Academy in El Segundo for their first BP swings of Spring.
When you’ve spent more than an hour pulling weeds and clearing away leaves
from the terraced hillside where our backyard avocado tree sits,
you’re chilling in a well-earned reading garden.
Her mom may be an avid consumer of audio books, but Miss A
takes after her dad when it comes to REAL reading! 😉 !
What better way to express your love for your family on Valentine’s Day than serving up some melted cheese over a sterno flame? Oui indeed, I busted out our fondue pot and introduced the kiddies to the timeless French classic. Fondue? More like Fun-due!
Considering the tapas kinda family the Lippmans are, I knew this idea would be a home run so I grilled up some ribeye steak and cocktail franks, roasted some fingerlings, cut up a baguette and threw some brussels sprouts into the mix and voila — the dipping items were good to go. For the fondue recipe, I went with a mixture of gruyere, emmental swiss, apple cider and shallots.
After a brief demonstration, everyone chose a fondue fork and went to town (or should I say “ville”!) The joke when T, A & X try something new and love it is to exclaim, “Oh no we’re not interested in having that again.”
Plus, s’il vous plait…..
