It's been rainy lately and if you take your time and walk through the forest, you'll see lots of growth. This mushroom was so blue it popped out! It's not soft at all.

Gainesville has a thriving bicycle culture. A while back, we had a get together called Dinner and Bikes. One dish that stood out as both delicious and creative was curried bananas and kale pasta.
