Panini, Pumpkin, Pineapple.

My latest Standard assignment proved … delicious.

I arrived at the Tipp Hill Cafe at 9:30 this morning.  When I opened the door and introduced myself, owner Julie Rudd promptly ordered up the breakfast panini I requested by phone last week.

We sat at a table and chatted about the restaurant and the sandwich– a simple tomato, egg and cheese on stretch bread.

I chowed down– after the photog snapped a few shots of the tasty sammich — enjoyed some coffee, then headed back to the office to write up the story. Must go back.

More on the Tipp Hill when the piece runs next week.  I think I could get used to the whole eating while on assignment thing.  Next week’s signature restaurant — Stella’s Diner and their breakfast scramble.

Pumpkin turned functional with tonight’s dinner.

And may I present to you… le pumpkin bowl… oui oui.

Fine, nothing about this screams “French.”  It just seemed appropriate for some reason.

So this is what happened.  I gutted the pumpkin, roasted her and filled her up with a veggie puree — roasted cauliflower, carrots, almond milk, butter, salt & pepp.  Then topped it with kidney beans and feta.  It’s like the produce version of a bread bowl, you get to eat it as you go.

And then things got a little tropical…

Pineapple, kiwi, yogurt and honey.

If you have a second to read this piece, please do.  It’s unbelievable.  And tell me what you think after you weep your eyeballz out.
