so let’s talk about something else

20Feb13

A known fact (by some) about me is that I am freakin’ in LOVE with cookbooks. Love, love, love. They are stacked all over the sideboard in my dining room and sprinkled throughout my amazon wish list. Luckily, my dear hubby is one of those who knows and understands my love of words and reading with my love of food and cooking. And for Valentine’s Day he got me this.

The good news – I’ve wanted a David Lebovitz cookbook for like ever. AND it shows that dear hubby listens to me once in awhile. 🙂

The bad news – I still have a week before I can attempt to cook anything from it. Probably longer than that because pulling off one of these recipes will take some time and Callie’s 2nd birthday is next weekend.

That’s okay, though, because he also had a good news/bad news item as part of his V-day gift. I included a giant Reese’s peanut butter cup. Good news – he got one of his favorite sweets. Bad news – he also has a week to go before he can eat it. I’m evil like that.

Anyway, knowing that all (one of) you are probably as sick of reading about my Whole30 as I am writing about it, I’ll move on to a different topic.

In a sec…I can’t not say something about the Whole30, seeing as how I still think about it a crazy amount of time during the day. Last week was better. I was not quite as food grumpy. I didn’t take any pics that are worth posting as I didn’t make anything new and exciting. Well, actually, I did do a new fish dish. Sorta. I had made sole meunière pre-Whole30 several times, but always used real butter. This time I used cod (Whole Foods didn’t have sole) and ghee. It was still good!

On to a new subject. How about rugs?

Ah, yes. This is the subject that has been on my mind for the last few days and it is now becoming a bit frustrating. I need to find a rug. Something to go in what I call the “fireplace room”. It’s basically the family room or formal living room or whatever. It’s right off the kitchen and we never use it. But I want to start using it, perhaps as a pseudo playroom considering the amount of toys we have for Callie in the living room looks like a borderline hoarders episode.

I need a large rug for the space and I can’t find anything I like. I mean, there are a lot of nice, plain jane rugs I could go with, but I kind of want to branch out and go a bit “wild”. But then I think, nah that’s not me and I could never pull off an awesome playroom despite my many pinterest inspirations.

Ah, what to do. Anyway. My quest for the perfect rug continues. At least through tomorrow. I want to find one and have it here in time for Callie’s birthday. Therefore, I need to sign off as the search continues. Wish me luck.

p.s…did i really just post about needing to find a rug? good lord.

  1. Good luck! I’ve been trying to find a rug I like for years. Usually I like them just OK and they are way to pricey to be just meh about it.
