Say what you will, but Temecula has it’s gems. E.A.T: Extraordinary Artisan Table is definitely something special. Its a farm-to-plate cafe that serves local and handcrafted entrees, sides and pastries that are good and good for you.
(Flat bread with mozzarella, mortadella, tomato and bacon w/a side salad)
Fresh ingredients, nice people, a menu that changes daily and the cozy, rustic decor make this place super unique.
Stop by, if you can, this place is open Tuesday-Friday from 8-3pm (took me a month to fit it in the schedule) but well worth it once you do.
It’s all about simple summer recipes right now. We recently made these bad boys as a throwback to Bagel Bites and other childhood memories. So easy to make and customize and in literally, 10 minutes:
1 pack of sour dough english muffins or bagels of choice
2 tomatoes, diced
4 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 bag of shredded motzerella
pepperonis (or any of your favorite toppings)
basil (finely chopped)
salt & pepper
arrange english muffins on a cookie sheet
in a saucepan, sauté garlic and tomatoes in olive oil for 10-15 minutes
spoon a teaspoon of the mixture over each english muffin
sprinkle mozzarella over each, add additional toppings
bake in broiler for 3-5 min..enough for cheese to melt and muffins to brown
remove from broiler and sprinkle basil on top
You might not see him but he’s a big part of Boots&Bowties. He’s taking the pictures, he’s manning the grill, he’s recommending locations. He’s Dan Dan and he’s graduating - today! I don’t know anyone else who can sit in a room of people, drink a beer, listen to music, criticize our blog and study for a test all at the same time, as well as he can.
You’re not our red headed step child, you’re our friend and we’re so proud of you. Congrats!
Side note: We ask that you not use any plastic bags today to commemorate the occasion. It’ll mean a lot to him.
Got puppies on the brain. It’s definitely a huge commitment and responsibility and one we are not taking lightly. So just for pups and giggles, we are frequenting pet adoption sites and animal shelters in our spare time. The other day, we met a quartet of mixed basset hound puppies and well….
Oh, those big fat paws…
Maybe one day. To be continued.
Luckily, I remembered to write this post. I’m super forgetful and constantly adding random tasks to my “to do list”. This being said, Wunderlist is officially our new best friend. Don’t forget to check it out.
