Slender green beans are so elegant, don't you think? A simple steam, some butter and maybe a scattering of toasted almonds and you've got a delicious side dish.
I'm working on stretching our food dollars these days, isn't everything so expensive? A bargain in vegetables just now: the humble zucchini.
I'm planning to whip up Mollie Katzen's Carrot-Zucchini Pancakes later today. They would be a beautiful side dish, true, but also brilliant as an after-school snack.
Have some odds and ends of fruit lying around?
Me too. It doesn't hurt to simmer down a chutney or a fruit sauce. How about peach and plum with a little brandy thrown in?
Polishing copper never fails to cheer me up.
As far as the decorating goes, I'm done for now, I feel I've hit the wall as it were. The blue and white pillows do add a fresh touch. Especially in contrast to a textured apricot throw pillow.
I was planning to search high and low for the perfect coffee table, but no. Instead I threw this old wooden tray on an ottoman I already had.
I think it's fine!
And the big news of the day.... GetFresh's Birthday!!
Happy Birthday to our GetFresh! It falls on a Mop Philosophy Monday and that can only mean one thing: a great year ahead!
Enjoy your day Darlings,
