I’m taking some vacation inspiration from these old pictures of my hero, my grandfather. Looking forward to adventures in the woods.
Also the Plants have all been adopted. Thanks adoptees! I will get your plants to you next week after I get back home.
Happy Weekend Friends.
I’ve been kind of a bad plant mom and my Peace Lily has sprouted about 8 babies that need a new home. I was thinking that it would be cool to see if anyone would like to adopt them. So if you are interested leave me a message in the comments of this post, or shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com. I only have 8, so please act fast. I will mail you a Peace Lily plant with an adoption certificate and care instructions at my own expense if you promise to take good care of them and maybe send me a photo of it’s new home.
PS peace lilies were named to be one of the best air filtering house plants by NASA. I hope that’s more incentive for you to leave a comment.
We have been invited to spend a week in a cabin in the Adirondacks with some super cool and generous friends next week, and we’ve been scheming about what kinds of delicious foods we want to make while on vacation in the mountains. Below are a few essentials that I’m excited about.
I really want to try this Smitten Kitchen Blueberry pancake recipe.
And have you ever heard of a Pie Iron? Our friend Tate brought one on our last camping trip and made us the best pizza sandwiches. They are so much fun!
I have a thing for vintage kitchen things, things that have been used and loved and passed on. I also have a love for handmade things, things that look a little funny, that are rough around the edges, but that people made with their own two hands. So to share these loves I’ve added some vintage kitchen things to my little etsy store along with some prints and paintings. You can check them out here.
1. Cook pasta according to directions. Drain. Return to pot.
2. Saute peppers, onion, and sausage. Add to the pot with pasta.
3. Heat sauce and add to pot. Mix gently until sauce is evenly distributed.
4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
5. Serve and top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
This recipe was submitted by Miyoko from Miyoko Eats. She says that, “This is one of our favorite, simple meals to make on a Sunday night. It’s a tasty and warm way to end the weekend—and it provides ample leftovers for the week to come.”
Thanks so much for sharing Miyoko and Rob!
We hosted a BBQ last night and I have been really inspired by how the two new beer gardens in our Philly neighborhood make hot dogs feel new again, so we threw a HOT DOG PARTY! We supplied the hot dogs, buns, and run of the mill condiments and charged our guests to bring some exciting toppings. They totally delivered. We had onion rings, chili, cheese, black bean salsa, kimchi, sweet chili sauce, bulgogi, sauerkraut, bacon and the list continues.
It was a super fun way to break out of the standard cookout fair, while still keeping things inexpensive and upping the creativity.
My friends from the Coco Love Homemade bake shop got married last week! And I had the privilege of painting their signature cocktail recipe.
It was such a beautiful perfect day. Congratulations Friends!
