Nico and Marie go to Red Honey. Red Honey is popular in Yerba Buena; they take it from red bees that float their hives in local lakes and pollinate water lilies exclusively. The honey is actually gold or light blue, but they add spices to it; Marie and Nico always go to this place because it’s the hottest here. Nico likes it best over a cornmeal jalapeño biscuit. She likes poached eggs and a hash or something; this time, she got the one with sweet potatoes and carrots and beets and spinach and bacon, they roasted it all with rosemary and pink salt until it was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Nico likes foods that crunch, and also foods that melt. Marie loves sweet things; she got the banana-nut and orange pancakes. The oranges are almost yellow and equally sweet and sour. The bananas were used to candy the walnuts.
All this stuff just grows here like it’s the simplest thing in the world to live.
