Fall is hurling toward us. I’m happy because I am just not geared for 90 degree weather, and thought I love my child dearly and hanging out with her is so much fun, I am glad to get my schedule back so I can actually get some work done. BUT I’m also sad because listening to ZacBrown’s Toes in the Sand 5,000 times a day isn’t okay when you’re wearing a sweatshirt. I guess it’s retired until next summer. I need some fall music. Any suggestions?
You know I stalk How Sweet It Is. In her last week’s Tuesday Things email (you must sign up for it! It’s too cool!) she had this Rich Kids of Instagram site linked. It’s Instagrams of rich kids doing rich kid things. It entertained me to no end on the drive back home from IOP. And she made this Brown Sugar Fig and Gorgonzola Crisp. I am totally rounding up some figs today. I’m not kidding.
I JUST found out that my parent-in-laws have never read my blog! WHAT?! Right? So a big hello to the father-in-law who decided to join the party. I’ve been dragging them around to restaurants and taking pictures of my food and cooking crazy stuff for over a year now. They probably thought I was NUTS since they had no idea what I was up to. Well, now ya do. And I’m not 100% nuts. Just maybe 87%.
My daughter is a rock star. Just saying.
This is the best Zinfandel I have had in my life.
I’m headed to Hollywild Zoo to cuddle some animals and get a tour this week for my animal of the week column fordiscoversouthcarolina.com…and I’m heading to Columbia to meet fellow blogger April Blake. I am so excited. I love her blog and we’ve been chatting it up on Facebook. And I’m apparently climbing into a giant kid (?) statue/interactive thing at Columbia’s kids’ museum for the day job. That should be interesting. I’ll see what sort of culinary shenanigans I can get into for you folks in between this week. Always willing to suffer for the masses.
I MUST try out the ASADA food truck. Two Greenville food trucks popped onto the scene while I was sick and I’ve totally missed out. I’m on a mission.
Have a great week guys. And be sure to suggest some fall music. New bands preferably. I WILL check them out!
PS: Dangermuffin is coming to Asheville on Nov. 2nd. I can’t stand myself.
