    So, we here at FC love quality things that go well with vapor, and one of those things is food, glorious food :) Here are some shots of a paleolithic berry cake with homemade lemon curd, well technically its primal because of the whipped cream, and a chilled Lobster salad from New Years. Please feel free to add photos, or "courses" to our virtual banquet. Photos don't have to be personal, just tasty :D Recipes, of course, would be awesome!

    Had a big birthday dinner at Balboa Park.
    Final receipt came out equivalent to a basic Vapexhale Cloud Package :ko:

    Triple Chocolate "Threat"
    Chocolate cookie crust, dark chocolate baked custard, dark chocolate ganache, salted caramel ice cream, cocoa nib garnish

    Wasn't too sweet. Real balanced with the super strong cocoa taste

    It's not dinner without some special stuff, right??

    This is an orange straight off our trees. No pesticides, no GM seeds, no bullshit. Lots of sunshine, lots of water. We've got a dozen of these trees, and they produce WAY too many oranges for us. We give them away all the time, to the point where it's two grocery store bags full just because we don't like too many to fall and rot. We do the same with the 3 large lemon trees, our avocados, tomatoes... a lot of stuff. Orange juice out of these doesn't need sugar. I'll get a clearer shot tomorrow, but this should show you what I mean.

    And a brew I picked up at the recommendation of a friend. Boy are we spoiled down here, huh SD_haze?? Going to get a growler of Stone straight from the source at some point tomorrow :tup:

    Okay, seriously, your paleo/primal food porn is driving me crazy.

    Now I want to go create something fabulous... oh, wait, how about my bacon chocolate? :)

    I don't have a photo :( I'll have to take some photos..

    You guys and gals like figs? These are from this past season, home-grown, no chemical bullshit.

    Damn, I had a lot written up but messed the page up!!

    Sorry, I've been too busy eating them!! They're so sweet, we have two different kinds of oranges, and some tangerines and tangelos. These are the wrinkly skin oranges, they're smaller than the other smooth ones, but these peel easier. The juice is much sweeter, too, to the point where just the oranges is enough, no sugar needed. Very very clean citrus scent to it, this is what citrus really is. Smells like spring :) Looks like candy, tastes like it, too. The trees get water, sunshine, and horse poop. Nature does it best, and all the food I'm lucky enough to eat is sure as hell proof.

    Don't forget you can click on the pictures for high-res :)

    Some more stuff I found in my pictures folder from mother earth here at home.


    Closer look at the figs that our tree gives. She's finally big now and puts out figs like crazy. I'm gonna get my dad to help me make fig wine this coming season. We love wine, but always in moderation :)

    Reminds me of my birthday and Thanksgiving.

    [​IMG]

    This one grew funny. The chilis were also grown here.

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes I add some salt, sometimes I eat them like this.

    [​IMG]

    For a short while, we get these, too. The bush is big now, too, so we're getting a lot these last few times around. Put these in the freezer, munch on them when you get cotton mouth :tup:

    [​IMG]

    When I get up early enough, and fix a cup of coffee, sometimes I'll go sit outside and vape.

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes, the afternoons. I love California. I love this world. It's so incredible.

    Was cleaning the kitchen, saw a bunch of fruits, decided to make smoothie. I ended up seeing the papaya after I was done, so I made some more with it.

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes they come out looking funny inside. Little hiccups from nature.

    [​IMG]

    Pre-papaya, no sugar, used the orange juice as a base. Delicious. Will be having one tomorrow morning.
