It’s time for the monthly rip and file. The monthly mag subscriptions have gotten totally out of hand. But it sure makes for some cool ideas.
in the kitchen: Broccoli is the new Brussel sprout. Thank God cause I was getting pretty tired of seeing those little tiny cabbage boogers all over the place. (I still have a bag in my fridge that may go bad before I can decide what to do with them.) There’s a super yummy recipe for Flash-Roasted Broccoli with Spicy Crumbs (meaning pepperoni and panko) in this month’s Food and Wine.
And I’m definitely making these pork looking eggroll things in the near future.
to buy: I’m newly obsessed with drinking out of Mason jars. Mainly I am a total klutz and they are really great for not tipping over when I side swipe them. Okay, so now there is a Mason Jar Shaker by W+P Design. It’s been in all the mags this season. But the coolest in new Mason Jar swag is this sippy cup top from Cuppow that turns your jar into a spill proof cup. Someone needs to purchase this for me for Christmas. I am in need.
Dear Santa: I happened upon an ad for White Chocolate Peppermint Pringles. What. The. Hell. I think I need these in my stocking. If you see them somewhere, message me immediately so I can tell Santa.
to give is better than sex: okay, maybe not, but it does feel good. If I had a bow tie guy in my life, I’d totally get them a bow tie from The Cordial Churchman out of Rock Hill. I really don’t think my brother or my husband, being the non-wearing-tie males they are, would appreciate the gesture. But maybe you know someone…
There’s a party going on in my house… I’m sitting here blogging. Maybe socializing would be a good thing today? Have a good weekend and happy Christmas shopping!
