Since I've been truant with my posting, here is a catch up, starting from just before Thanksgiving.
My house is part of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group. What that means is that a bunch of people in the city connect with a group of local farmers and directly work together through seasonal commitments. That is a secured season for the farmers and a fresh basket of food every week for us. Nice.
This is what the end looks like.
Moving on from the fresh stuff to the cooked stuff, it was Thanksgiving time.
The next day, Casey and I rode our bikes to North Beach. If you've ever been in that area of San Francisco, you know that it is right next to Chinatown and a strange experience to go from America to China to Italy in six blocks.
After leaving Chinatown, North Beach (aka little Italy) wasn't as ornate, and I didn't get many shots there.
To continue with the holiday spirit, last night my house had a cookie decorating party. A few of us had just gotten back from seeing one of our roommate's perform in a play to find another roommate wrapping up her cookie baking session, ready for us to decorate.
