the catskill kiwi heads to the mid west

Howdi all, I’m on location all this week out in Des Moines, Iowa, for work.  This kiwi has lived in the good ole USA for about 17 years, but only on Nantucket Island and the island of Manhattan, two places that aren’t really similar to the rest of American.  So it should be a bit of an eye opener….

In the meantime here’s some recipes to amuse yourselves with,  here, here, here, here and here.  See you all next week.

    My best friend lives in Des Moines and I was back visiting her a few months ago. You MUST eat at the best Vietnamese restaurant I have ever been to, A Dong at 1511 High Street. If you’re still there on Saturday, you should also check out their farmers’ market – it’s one of the best out there. Let me know if you want recommendations for anything else – coffee, eats, yoga studios, shopping, etc.

    Why are we (outcast NZer’s) always attracted to islands or forest?
