Daily Inspirations and Adventures

Quit being a coward

A  tall, thin, beautiful, blond should wear whatever she thinks is gorgeous.  Be warned, when you visit Florida next time, we will make a duct tape dress form, and from that I will make a pattern that actually fits you.  Then you can go to Mood, buy DVF fabric.  Sorry, I can’t do anything about dinner reservations. 

My planned post for today has been totally derailed by replying to your post.  I thought I’d find a French Landry recipe for you to make.  Of course, there is a F.L. cookbook, and of course someone blogged about making every recipe in the book. Here are her favorites, with links to the recipes: 

As 2007 moved into 2008, I did a little reflection on some of my French Laundry favorites and other recommendations. When I look back on that list of my Top Ten Favorites, it’s interesting now to see what stayed on the list, and what has been replaced by things I’ve made since then.

Top Ten Favorites

Roulade of Pekin Duck Breast with Creamed Sweet White Corn and Morel Mushroom Sauce: Phenomenal.

Black Sea Bass with Sweet Parsnips, Arrowleaf Spinach, and Saffron-Vanilla Sauce: Oh, wow.

Cream of Walnut Soup: It made me close my eyes, smile, and bounce around in my seat with glee.

“Head to Toe” — Pig’s Head
: Three exhausting days. One life-changing experience.

Velouté of Bittersweet Chocolate
: I think this might be the best dessert I’ve ever made.

Oysters and Pearls: This is the dish that got me to love oysters. No small feat.

Sweet Potato Agnolotti with Sage Cream, Brown Butter, and Prosciutto: Perfection.

Tasting of Potatoes with Black Truffle: I want this on my Thanksgiving table, and then, I want Thanksgiving to be every day. Or twice a day.

“Peas and Carrots” — Maine Lobster Pancakes with Pea Shoot Salad and Ginger-Carrot Emulsion: This dish makes me want to hug myself.

Braised Breast of Veal with Yellow Corn Polenta Cakes, Glazed Vegetables, and Sweet Garlic: My new favorite comfort food.

I have to go get a napkin, I’m drooling.

It was a gorgeous day here, so I was going to send some flower pictures.  Instead, I would like your opinion.  I will be making  a blue baby quilt.  What do you think about this?


This is from the site that has your favorite neon orange and gray linen quilt.  I will have to do something different for the quilting, this is what she quilted on a different version of this quilt.


How did this become a food blog???? By the way my favorite outfit was the one with the PINK pants.
