For a number of years my wonderful husband and in-house photographer has been photographing sunflowers. He seems to see them in a different light than most others and catches them from every angle. The other morning I saw him gather up his camera and head to the living room where a bunch of sunflowers were slowly passing their brighter days near a window (gated from the old days of New York’s breaking and entering days of crime). When he looked at the results he said “Doesn’t it remind you of a child looking longingly out to the street?” Perhaps the sunflower was looking back at its days of freedom in the field – who knows.

Lately I seem to be on a bok choy kick, but who could resist this absolutely flowery bunch of purple bok choy that found its way into the kitchen? I was going to incorporate it into some fried rice but decided it was just too pretty to not stand on its own. So, I cut it into pieces and quickly sautéed it in a bit of grapeseed oil and butter, seasoned it with salt and pepper, and cooked it just until it wilted. I added a good measure of ponzu sauce that I found in the fridge, gave it a toss, and served it up as a side to soft shell crab sandwiches we had made from our leftovers. A simple, easy, and very tasty dish.
