At A Glance July

What I find notable for the month.

Gucci x Adidas It’s a such a great collaboration.
Roasted Cauliflower. Boil a whole head of cauliflower in salted water until it is fork tender. Dry well and chill in the refrigerator or flash submerge in ice water then dry well. Preheat oven to 500°. Sprinkle Kosher salt over the entire head and pour olive oil liberally as well. Roast in oven safe -I use the aluminum- pan so I know it can withstand 500° for 45 minutes or until char begins to form. Serve with tahini dressing or herb aioli.
Sandro I post a lot of these cropped cardigans. I find them polished looking over t shirts or under a blazer.
Cropped Jacket This jacket has so many pockets that you could almost forgo a purse or tote.
This may be controversial, I am loving no polish, short nails. Yes, that is my 57 year old hand.
Gianvito Rossi I think a taller ankle boot with a chunky block heel is chic all year long. I saw a women wearing a pair with a short, white, frilly dress in 90° heat. It grounded her look in such a cool way. This is on my wish list.
Diptyque This substantially sized ceramic vessell holds a bug repelling Citronnelle Lemongrass candle. It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
This Time Tomorrow, By Emma Straub. I enjoyed this novel that combines time travel, family, and NYC.

Harrowstyle Falafel Recipe

1 28oz can of chickpeas rinsed and drained
1 red onion rough chop
1/2 cup of parsley, rough chop
5 cloves of garlic minced or pressed. 
1 ½  teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
½  teaspoon of cumin
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ cup chickpea flour
Avocado oil

Preheat the oven to 250°. 
Spread out chickpeas on aluminum foil or parchment lined baking sheet. Place in the oven to dry out canned chickpeas while you are preparing other ingredients. 

Place onion,parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, red pepper flakes in a food processor, add chickpeas. Pulse gently until chickpeas are in small but still recognizable pieces. Do not over pulse mixture. 

Move mixture to a large bowl. Add chickpea flour (any flour will do if you don’t have chickpea-it’s just to help bind.)

Make the mixture into balls. Lightly fry in avocado oil and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet. 

Prior to serving, preheat oven to 350° and bake until fully heated through about 15-20 minutes.

Serve in a pita or a bowl with tahini sauce, mediterranean salad, pickled onion or pickled turnips.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Anderson Cooper and Katherine Howe. I listened to it as an audio book. Anderson Cooper’s voice is familiar yet authoritative. I can’t get enough of how the Vanderbilt family built, spent and squandered their wealth. The very rich are just as enviable and abhorrent as you may imagine. This book delivered with details, poignancy and a little bit of caution.
Aeyde I have recently became aware of this brand and love this classic Maryjane pump.
I love this cropped denim jacket by Me + Em. The rivets have a plus sign detail.
Has anyone tried this newer Ralph Lauren Unisex cologne? I am intrigued.
Julia. I I feared that this HBO Max series wouldn’t be as good as the 2009 movie about Julia Child, Julie and Julia. No fear, I am loving Sarah Lancashire in the title role. The other incredible actors include, Bebe Neuwirth, David Hyde Pierce, Judith Light, James Cromwell, Isabella Rossallini as well as many others.
This Saint Laurent quilted leather bag is a great example of my new obsession with vertical bags. Also, take note: no loud hardware.
I have a thing for shallow bowls. I prefer them to using a straight plate. They also also great as serving pieces for hummus, chips, and vegetables.
I am enjoying this Apple TV, fictional series, but based on the true story, about the rise and fall of the WeWork as told through the lives of its founders. I love watching Anne Hathaway in anything-and she doesn’t disappoint in portraying Rebekah Neumann. Jared Leto, who’s performance in the House of Gucci was incredible, is equal to the task of portraying the dynamic Adam Neumann. It’s a fun ride albeit, a little dragged out. I have fun looking at the clothing, the sets and watching entitled behavior run amok.
