I've got a secret to share....I love potatoes. Pretty much any way you cook them. Fried, mashed, baked, roasted, au gratin, in soup or any other way.
Never mind that they're full of starch and carbs. They're one of those comfort foods that it's okay to eat. Probably not everyday, but once a week or so isn't bad. After all, we do need our vegetables, right?
Recently we bought a book of idioms (not idiots) for our 13-year-old daughter. Why? Because it seems like every time we say something like "the cat's out of the bag" or "don't spill the beans", we get a look from her as if we were speaking a foreign language. Like Martian or Venusian.
It always makes me feel really old when this happens.
Or really redneck.
Or completely out of touch.
Today I'm reminded of the idiom "your eyes are bigger than your stomach". You remember that one....the one your mother of grandmother would say to you after you couldn't eat everything that you had piled on your plate. Well, I seem to have that problem with furniture that needs a little tlc.
It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind, right? Well it happens
to me ALL THE TIME! Just ask my husband. Things are always changing
around here...paint colors, furniture arrangement, curtains, pillows,
you name it. If it's not nailed down, it gets changed or rearrranged in
I don't do a ton of Easter decorating around our house. Not that it isn't an important holiday. On the contrary, it's THE most important religious holiday to me. Without it, we wouldn't have Christianity. Think about it...
I like to keep it understated. It makes it easier to keep things out for a longer period of time.
Today I'm giving a little tour of what we have in the entry, on the living room mantel, and in the breakfast room hutch.
