A Goodbye To Savor

A tribute I wrote to my beloved grocery store appeared in today’s Chronicle, in its own special section with a touching illustration. I added the photos below for extra flavor.

Facing The Coconut

Ever since I read online about a woman who discovered something really gross-looking/tasting in the coconut water she purchased, I have steered clear of  bottled coconut water and instead opted to buy the coconut itself. A pain to open, especially without a machete, but the coconut water is 100 times fresher than the bottled kind and I love scooping up the coconut meat. Here’s what my coconut looked like when I was attempting to open it. I thought it was smiling at me.
