Most of the things I’ve been doing as of late aren’t exactly interesting, unless you’re me. Like making lists and crossing things off ever so slowly. Last night I made it through one half of one item… Frame prints and photos that have been neglected for months and in some cases, years.
Successfully framed two cute prints for the kitchen:
We still have a few more to go, including two neat prints from Australia. Sadly I think those will have to be custom framed because they’re weird dimensions. Why is framing so expensive??
Also in the baby list department, we found our Doula! So excited. She’s awesome.
And baked those amazing chocolate chip cookies last night. Note: they’re still delicious even if you don’t properly age the dough overnight.
I made this yummy soup on Monday and we managed to have it for dinner for 3 nights in a row. So convenient. I substituted beet greens for the kale because I had 2 huge bags left over from farmer’s market purchases. And I added parsnips for more fall flavoring.
(sorry, no link. Martha’s food team has apparently been slacking in the “upload recipes from magazine to website” department).
I’ve also decided to give in to early Christmas mania. Peppermint mocha lattes, Christmas carols in every store, decorations have been up in Santa Monica for weeks… why fight it, you know? I’m going to break out my Julie London cds, drink egg nog in my coffee and start preparing for the crafting of gifts. Even though it’s only the middle of November.
