Santa Ana zoo is great for kids or part of a longer day out, but don't come expecting something like the San Diego Zoo, just a bit of wholesome family fun.

I've walked past the olive oil store, but never gone in. We'll have to check it out next time we're up there, and the spice store as well.

Geez louise, emd3. What a trip. I admire your determination to have some fun and to see the glass as half full. I guess you have to make do with the situation at hand. You were cracking me up with your medical reviews. Always a nurse, right?

I went to a vinegar and oil shop in Charlottesville last week. I bought a few interesting potions and made a salad dressing with blood orange olive oil and elder flower apple lime vinegar. I've heard there is an oil/vinegar shop here in Williamsburg but haven't checked it out yet.

Lol, Birdie! You got it, totally spot on.

Elderflower apple lime venegar. YUM. Have you tried St. Germain, the apple flower liquor? As I noted above, I had a GREAT cocktail at Scalos (on Central Ave. in the Nob Hill area in ABQ) with St. Germian Elderflower Liquar, small batch silver tquilla, and grapefruite juic,

That does sound like a yummy cocktail. I don't even know what an elderflower is.

How about using the roasted pumpkin see in place of olive oil and make pesto out of it. I think it would really go well with the pine nuts and basil. You could also just make pasta, add in a few splashes of pumpkin oil, some pine nuts, spinach, and/or fresh basil, garlic, sundried tomato, splash of dry white wine, splash of lemon. could add in cream if you aren't watching your fats. Gorgonzolla or parm cheese would also be an option. Smoked Mozzarella would also be good.

If you make homemade pizza, drizzle it on top of that
