PPK PPicniK!

This weekend I drove up to San Francisco for a PPK picnic. Usually SF is a cold and foggy place, and I am never trusting the weather forecast, but it was a totally glorious day, and we gathered in Dolores Park for a great little meetup. I hadn't met anyone there before... so after wandering around like a lost soul for 30 minutes - carrying mini strawberry pies and fava bean salad - finally Jaymoh spotted my little pies and introduced herself! I was so relieved! It was super awesome to meet everyone. (and to eat their yummy food!)

We were gathering to celebrate a special visitor... Pandacookie! Pandacookie and I tried to be good photodocumenters... (that's Mr. Lemon and Baby Lemon in the background)

Pandacookie and Baby Lemon!


There were a couple of birthdays to be celebrated too!


But, what about the food???!! Oh, it was GOOOOOOOD. Suffice it to say, I totally gorged myself on the yumminess. This was only my first plate... after that I was too busy eating to keep taking pictures. Starting at the top: Jaymoh's super-scrumptious cannoli with lemony filling, one of my mini strawberry pies, Molotess's yummy hummus with cauliflower, balsamic sauce, Pandacookie's macaroni salad (mm!), Chris' totally delicious beer-battered seitan (YUM), and some of my fava bean and artichoke heart salad. There were also brownies and jo-jos... I had a very happy tummy!

Hoorah for new pals and delicious food!
