Trolling For Recipes

I did not have dinner tonight. Just one of those things. Not a bad thing. I was actually buying a pair of jeans at Marshall's which is a discount retailer here in the USA. I got a pair of Irregular Levi's for $14.99. Rock on! I also got this really nice black duster, but apparently when the cashier removed the "don't steal this or it will explode" tag, it put a hole in the garment. Now I need to return it tomorrow and hope I can get one that has not been damaged by someone putting a heavy plastic tag through the fine material. Duh.

The reason I did not eat is that when I got back from the store, the hubby, toddler and I had to go and pick up our other car from the mechanic. We get there, the guy was still working on it and was delayed, so we waited, then I drove home with the toddler because he was just not going to sit in the car waiting any longer.

So, since I did not eat, I am hungry, but will wait until the am to chow down. In the meantime I have been perusing recipes and decided to post ones that sound like something I would have if I had every ingredient and was feeling remotely ambitious. Shall we?

Lemon Lavender Shortbread from Annie's Eats. These would go fabulous with a nice cup of tea.

Salmon Salad with Pan Fried Potatoes from Mennonite Girls Can Cook. I could eat this all by myself.

Apricot and Lavender Brown Butter Tea Cakes from Tartelette. I want these. NOW.

Ginger Lavender Tonic from Food Loves Writing. My name is MissFifi and I have a lavender fetish. Thank you.

Rice and Garbanzo Bean Salad with Kale from Nourishing Meals. Must make this.

Brussels Sprouts Gratin in Cream and Blue Cheese by Kitchen Vignettes. Holy Decadence!!!

Okay, I gotta go to bed so I can wake and eat ASAP. LOL

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

A Good Book Here, A Good Book There

Took a hiatus. Yeah, I am sure you all noticed. Been trying to get things moving along and with that I had to slack and so I slacked on the blog. Now allow me to share our little artificial tree that our son and his grandma decorated with glee.

In the last two months or so, I no longer bring my computer upstairs. Instead I have started to read at night. While this may not sound like any big deal, it is a little for me. I love to read, but due to school, home, obligations, and writing a novel, I somehow pushed reading an actual book to the side.  Like a lot of folks I got more caught up in the rabbit hole of the internet. Now, I do love getting sucked down various rabbit holes, but I also felt that I needed to actually unplug.
Allow me to sidebar a bit here.

I had been struggling with my book for a very long time. In the last 6 months or so it got worse. I had lost the true nature of the story and could no longer hear the character voice. I am not the first writer this has happened to…
