Cool Stuff I Like
September 26, 2014
So here are some comforting things that might cheer me up and maybe you, if you also have a tremendous sorrow about a snack food that got away........
One Pot Chili Mac and Cheese with bonus corgi puppy!
Julia just talked me into getting these dancing skeleton lights.....
I love room makeovers.
10 Favorite Autumn books from my pal Amelie.
I would like to check in to this hotel asap.
How to be a calm parent.
How to get rid of mucous. (i didn't realize how much i'd been longing to write that phrase before i wrote it)
WOW. (sorry, this isn't really comforting, it was a scary wakeup call to think of the times I've done this!)
Cool Book of the Week: Not sure if you know of my love for Jamie Oliver. My love for him might have escaped your notice, because I'm usually professing my undying love for Mr. Nigel Slater. But Jamie, I do adore him! He seems so NICE. He names his children after flowers and animals. His writing style is fun, cheerful, and encouraging.
And by all the world's pancakes, don't we need all the encouragement we can get in the kitchen?? These days I feel like I need a small team of clapping elves, cheering me on and waving flags and balloons. I have MANY of his books and his newest, 'Jamie Oliver's Comfort Food' was just released. Ok, I will pretty much buy ANYTHING with the words 'comfort food' anywhere in the title. Just like I will want to eat at any restaurant that has the word 'cafe' or 'bistro' somewhere in the name.
