Ladies and gents––I have a special announcement. Fern Smith is officially in San Francisco! Fern hails from Nebraska and visits the Smith/Delgadillo clan about once a year, so it’s definitely a special occasion when she’s in town. Brandon and I invited Fern, Ray, and Ofe over for a little sunday dinner at the Treehouse, where we enjoyed crunchy baked pork chops, whipped purple sweet potatoes (so fun), and roasted brussels sprouts with pomegranate molasses. Ofe made the most scrumptious carrot cake (her mother’s recipe) with a lemon glaze. I probably had one too many slices but I couldn’t help myself! I’m looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with these fantastic folks in the coming days.
