The Heads of State – Posters & Using Shopify

While doing some light research on using Shopify on a possible project, I stumbled upon The Heads of State design guys in the Shopify showcase section. Their poster prowess makes me envious yet simultaneously full of design lust. The colours on the Wilco poster keep reminding me to push the concept of overlays to create colour harmonies. Buy the design goodness from the The Heads of State Poster Shop. I especially love their new Travel Series.

 

 

Hurricane Irene Cooking: Tomato, Onion, Olive & Anchovy Tart

I’m so freaking glad I made this. I used a packaged puff pastry base instead of making my own crust and it’s heavenly. I used this recipe from Epicurious as a base. Instead of Jack or Gruyere cheese, I used a strong Irish cheddar on the crust then microplaned parmesan on top. Next time, I may just leave out the anchovies altogether (only put them on half this time).

I made this to use some of my extra CSA tomatoes from last week, but this didn’t use up nearly as many as I thought it would. Earlier in the afternoon, I also baked some chicken thighs seasoned with sage, garlic powder, salt, pepper, thyme and lime for snacking later on. Tomorrow I may sauté some peaches in butter and whiskey to put over some coconut milk ice cream. What are y’all making this weekend to weather out the storm?
