This week its berries galore! I look for the small organic kind that are really juicy. Pizza on Venice http://www.pizzaofvenice.com/ is a nice new addition, they have yummy tangerine agua fresca… out of this world! And, they know hospitality. I also pick up raw milk on the regular here from Organic Pastures http://www.organicpastures.com/shop.html and honey from Bill’s Bees http://www.localharvest.org/bills-bees-M3411.
Eating local rules. Shelly xoxo

I stumbled on these murals along Christiansen Alley, which runs parallel to the first block of shops along the North side of Colorado Boulevard (it’s the alley to Sur le Table and Paper Source). Love! Another reason I find living here inspiring, art and trees everywhere. Get out and experience a different path today. Enjoy, Shelly xoxo
