Kati and I have decided that we are going to start Mary Margaret this coming Sunday so I got a chance to do a little extra Sunday stitching on my ornies, and this is my progress for last week. Three little happy dances! YEAH

So Sunday I got up a little earlier than usual...not sure why, was just up...and turned on the tv. Nothing on so I settle on the Food Network. Low and behold my old friend, whom I haven't watched in a long time was on...The Barefoot Contessa herself, Ina Garten. Watched two episodes, back to back and was literally craving every single one of her pasta dishes! As the day goes by I think to myself I need to go to the bookstore to pick up one of her cookbooks, just to take a peek. She doesn't use too many weird spices and seasonings....most of her food I would probably eat, if given the chance. So off I went...me and my little plum rewards card. Well I came home with not one, not two, but three of her cookbooks. And even that took me an hour to decide which ones I wanted...because I really did just want one...but everything looked so good! Magazine section...picked up a couple of stitching magazines as well. NICE! And I can't remember whether it was US or People but it had Amanda Cox on the cover. YEP But ladies...be proud...when then offered my the furry blankie for $30 because I spent more than $50...I refused! LOL Now that's will-power! Don't you agree? So now I'm looking thru these books and yes, I can cook almost all of these recipes...and yes I will probably eat them...and yes perhaps my Hungarian husband will appreciate them as well...but WHEN WILL I HAVE TIME??? Moral of the story...never watch the food network followed up by the bookstore, when HUNGRY! Geesh!
Seriously though, I would love to do the Julie/Julia thing and cook and bake everything in them. Plus her other books as well. Aaawwwww if only life would allow suck indulgences.
oops I almost forgot! I also bought a brie baker! I don't even know why!!
