During the rest of the weekend we tried out three restaurants that we hadn’t been to before: Chouchou in Twin Peaks, Flour + Water in the Mission, and the new Bun Mee in the Fillmore. We attended SF Carnival 2011 and even made it to the North Bay to go to the 22nd Annual Larkspur Flower & Food Festival after a 35 mile bike ride up Mt. Tam...gotta earn those calories somehow!
Phew, I’m tired, happy and full just thinking about it! Since it was such a fun food-filled weekendI thought I’d give you a quick run down so you can decide which restaurants or events next year you want to check out yourself...

The weather has been so incredible in San Francisco lately that we’ve decided to do something simple yet indulgent for our Sunday dinner this week.
Simple in terms of the fact that it is all store-bought. Indulgent in terms of it being leisurely, fun and involving a bottle of Champagne while watching the sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge. Lovely.
We've been making this summer soup for years, it's from my favorite soup cookbook, "Soup: Superb Ways with a Classic Dish." Many Italian summer minestrone recipes include pesto to stir in at the end, but this is so flavorful that I don't feel that it's necessary. Helps keep the calorie count down as well so I can dip big chunks of whole grain bread in it instead!
