I totally sprang my child out of school early this afternoon. It was way too sunny in South Carolina to sit in a class room. I nabbed her and we went to the barn to enjoy the weather and some time with the horses. I still haven’t gotten on one yet, but enjoyed the sunshine and some blogging time while she rode around.
Prior to sealing my place for mother of the year today, I popped into Kitchen Arts and Pottery in downtown Greenville to interview the owner, Liz, for a story. The place is chock full of odd and end kitchen supplies and high end ingredients – stuff you just can’t find at the grocery store. I scored some Italian lemon pasta to make for dinner. Add a little butter, a little garlic… yum!
Oh, and I went to Trader Joe’s. I came away with a huge bag of goodies (and wine) including the new Crunchy Cookie Butter (which is the bomb), Sweet Potato Chips, Kona Coffee Shortbread Cookies (which are heaven in a cookie sprinkled with coffee) and PBandJ chocolate bar (made with their Raspberry jelly, which I LOVE).
Yep, it was a healthy trip. I would like to point out that my family suffers so on the food front. Too bad I’m not as good at cleaning house as I am scouting out goodies.
I have yet to catch up on DVR recordings enough to see Smash. We are, however, caught up on The Following. I love this show. Totally hooked. It’s a nail biter each episode and it’s Keven Bacon, people! (Hmmmm…. bacon. I should have grabbed some today while I was out.)
We are also digging Banshee (Antony Starr is a bad ass) and The Americans (Felicity is just SO serious these days and she kicks butt).
That’s all I got. Just checking in. Stay tuned for another ChefQ6 coming your way!
