A couple of friends and I went to San Fransisco for the day and we had brunch here at Foreign Cinema.
This place is so great they even play foreign and independent films in their covered outdoor courtyard
You can sit indoors by the fire, or upstairs in their semi-private mezzanine overlooking the dining room or on the patio outside
They have a huge selection of wines from local to all over the world
The atmosphere is a bit of industrial and rustic all rolled into one
They offer a California/Mediterranean inspired menu that changes daily
They serve dinner nightly and brunch both Saturday and Sunday
The chefs are John Clark and Gayle Pirie, a husband and wife team
Of course I had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc

The Farm at South Mountain has a few venues for eating; we chose “The Farm Kitchen” this day. They also serve sandwiches, soups, salads & baked goods made from scratch as well as fresh ingredients from the garden.
A great kid friendly, dog friendly patio that sit’s underneath the pecan trees shading the cute picnic tables
Open patio seating
They serve your order in a picnic basket
The farm garden sandwich was very fresh and packed full of veggies!
After lunch we walked through the trees to Botanica which is the little market with cute gifts and succulents for sale.

I use so much cilantro like for our pico de gallo and hate to throw away the stems. Ever wonder what to do with all those stems? Well here is a delicious way to use them.
I use a lot of cilantro leaves in things like pico de gallo and other salsas etc. I really hate throwing out the stems so I thought why not try it in a pesto. It is really good and has a milder taste than the leaves.
Recipe: Approx. 2 Cups
Shred the cheese, juice the limes and measure along with everything else then put in to food processor or blender and puree
