    Ooh making kombucha, I’ll look forward to your post on that. And that dinner has some very delicious-sounding flavours!

    Kombucha and Cauliflower? Sold! Told you the scoby was a creepy weird flying alien stingray mushroom.

    Oh that food looks delicious … I love venison (particularly if well cooked). It’s a long time since I’ve cooked a whole head of cauliflower but I did so recently and it was yum. Should do it again.

    And, well, that area of California. Gorgeous. Your uncle asked whether you read Steinbeck while there? I said you’d read Steinbeck before … but not this time I thought. I assume you all discussed Steinbeck late into the night though!

    interesting!!! never knew about homemade kombucha!!!! hehe maybe I’ll finally get to try some! 😀

    I used to make my own kombucha but I had to stop right before I moved! Fruit flies got in and that wasn’t pretty lol. I’m hoping to start again soon though! Can’t wait to hear about your experience.

    Now THAT looks like some good food! Glad you’re getting to experience such a variety in the US!

    No dessert? I’m sure something wonderful could be crafted with a torch utilizing a bit of that thar propane.

    You got to play with a scoby! How nice for you:) Yours is sort of creepy looking, but maybe that’s what you get when you make it in a giant vat with a pourable spout!

    I’d jump at that stranger in the trees too – the general store looks like an amazing place to visit – wish I could say I was able to find a place there but even eating out locally is a challenge! And that kombucha making looks like an illegal gin den!

    Lols I looked at ‘random stranger’ and the horror movies of my life flashed before my eyes 😉
    But besides that creepy incident, everything else looks lovely – especially that lovely dinner!

    Bacon roasted venison? Be still my happy, hungry heart! 😮 And sheesh that figure i the trees is absolutely frightening! I would have screamed my lungs out! 😮

    That cauliflower dish looks insane!

    What a lovely weekend where you did so much but it all seems so very relaxing. You sure have been eating some great food – unlike that time in Vegas! xx

    whoah I think that lady in the trees would have made me jump out of my skin as well!

    and cauliflower with cheese is the happiest pairing indeed! local cheese too. uber delicious 🙂

    I have been experimenting with kiffir and have been thinking about trying kombucha. Would love to hear more about it.

    Why yes, I have always wanted to dine next to a flammable container of propane. Looks awfully charming, my dear 🙂

    Yay to the whole head of cauliflower! And atmospheric dining 🙂
