Odds and Ends


We had a lot going on this week and a few dinners out, which means my kitchen was mostly abandoned.  So here are a few random thoughts and photos to keep the blog rolling...

Carson took me out for a Valentine's dinner at Melisse.  I died.  We both agreed it was probably the best meal that has ever passed our lips.  The photo above was just one of the many courses, a soft poached egg with caviar and puff pastry.  Paired with some ridiculous champagne to wash it down.  
Beacoup bucks, but worth it on a special, SPECIAL occasion.   

That is a picture of my mom, from back in the day, adoringly staring at a slab of meat (turkey drumstick I think).  Possibly talking to it a little bit?  I am her daughter.  

Why does it have to look like that this month?  Why why WHY?

Bought this at Williams-Sonoma this week (thanks Mom for the gift card!).  It doubles as a punch bowl!  But right now is housing leftover these.  

Getting inspired for Jack's upcoming birthday party here.  
If anyone has ideas for me I'd gladly hear them!  
Have glorious weekends.
