An unglamorous photo of my 4th of July cioppino. It was good 4th fare - especially fitting for the freezing "summer" weather here. I got fresh mussels, littleneck clams, prawns, and sea bass from the fish mart and served the soup with fresh corn on the cob(picked in Brentwood that morning). I also found some beautiful chioggia beets at the Fort Mason farmer's market which I roasted and marinated in a little vinegar and salt (no sugar was needed).

We had an interlude of fireworks (aka watching the fog change colors) at Alta Plaza Park after which we returned home for a generous helping of homemade apple pie (I like to put a bit of lemon zest in mine).
