Weekend Bites

With Daylight saving time adieu, the clocks have fallen back to their winter mode and even with the extra hour we feel this weekend arrived too soon.  It’s time for our Weekend Bites, and hope you had an exciting Halloween last weekend. California has been in a terrible drought for several years now, so the spookiest moment was on October 31 when at 9pm (the time most Halloween parties were set to start) a massive rain storm soaked the town for a few hours. Can you believe the next day the storm was gone and by the early afternoon of November 1st the sun was out shinning again and you could put the umbrellas away. The little cold spur gave us a chance to prepare our Pork and Cabbage, a cozy one pot meal in the oven. Right now we are back in summer again with temperatures close to 80F.


Weekend Bites Recipe: Pork and CabbagePork Cabbage Riesling
This dish is so simple to make and our version of Pork and Cabbage is a bit lighter than the traditional version grandam used to make.


Favorite Flower: Canna Lilies Canna Lilies

Canna Lilies Flowers
At the moment this vibrant orange flower is in bloom all over town and in the garden. I will run outside right now and take a new photo for today’s Weekend Bites! Canna Lilies are not quite lilies and are closer related to banana trees and ginger plants. They can be traced back to the Americas and are also found in Europe. The Canna species does well in warm tropical environments and since our weather has been so strange we have seen more of these bright plants than ever before.


Judit’s Favorite Fashion: Orange KurtaJudit orange Kurta Tunic
This orange Kurta is just one of my favorites! I borrowed it from Corina and I loved it so much that I don’t want to give it back. Thank you Corina, you are a great daughter. She got this tunic from a good friend from India and it has a beautiful embroidered pattern and a color that fits the Fall hues.


Weekend Bites Wine: Sauvignon Blanc

This Ancient Peaks Sauvignon Blanc would pair nicely with Turkey and all those squash and pumpkin dishes that are in season now.


Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead and lovely Friday!

    What a cute kurta you have on and the orange goes so well with the canna lilies and Michael Kors tangerine purse. A match made in orange heaven!

  2. Girls, I *loved* this post! And Judit, I am in love with orange (my favorite color), so that shirt = divine. Can I borrow it? Corina, that purse? I ssssoooo want it. Feel free to buy it for me. I’m cool with that! Our weather has been freezing cold (ok, maybe not, but it feels like it), so to read it’s 80 degrees there, send some heat our way, will you? xoxo

    1. We would love to send you some sunshine Kristi and hope the weather will get warmer for you! Corina will think about borrowing the orange tunic…she is still thinking…and thinking 🙂

    That pork & cabbage looks very tasty and is definitely something I would like to have for dinner tonight. The orange looks fun, I don’t usually carry a purse though 😉

    I have never seen canna lilies, but they are such interesting unique flowers. The pork and cabbage looks perfect for fall and I would love the Michael Kors Tangerine tote, I have a couple in brown and neutral tones.

    1. We haven’t seen the lilies outside of California yet and right now they are in bloom and there seem to be more every day. We liked how they matched the tangerine tote. 🙂

    While New England has brightly colored leaves in the fall, I do like the Canna Lilies that give you that lovely color as do the two totes that you like. I’m with you about pork and cabbage being a wonderful dish for fall.

    1. We can imagine how beautiful New England is right now and would love to see the changing of the Autumn leaves Karen. At least the orange of the lilies reminds us of that time of year.
