We are off school this week. Yahoo!!!!! This means no homework — I’m thrilled, no end.
It is also sort of a week off of big time cooking for me, since we are going to be feasting in Alabama. I do get to provide a Wednesday night meal and I’m really excited about that. But, since we’ll be doing the turkey thing the next day, I’m going to do a Tex-Mex dinner. Should be good.
I saw this Coconut Hot Chocolate on Three Many Cooks. I am definitely going to try this one. Coconut and chocolate are made for each other.
Also, you should try to win this trip to France. It looks amazing! A gazillion people will enter and I won’t win but I think that I’m going to dream, anyway.
I don’t know what it is about Southerners in general and Mississippians in particular, but we just love our pottery. I was perusing a local shop that had McCarty pottery today. Of course, I’ve known about it for a long time and have always appreciated it. But, now, I want one of everything. Love, love the jade glaze. Also, the little animals are awesome. The pigs and fat little birds are just delightful. Help! I don’t need any more dinnerware….and, yet, I want. It is too bad that I didn’t have a decent camera with me. All the pics on the web that I could find weren’t great, but, then it is hard to capture the beauty with a camera, anyway.
Well, I’m off to try and watch some of Moonrise Kingdom. Jon and I tried to watch the other night but I kept falling asleep. It was one of those times when staying awake was like holding back the ocean. But, now I am awake and all of my males are down for the night….so maybe I’ll catch up to where we left off.
Happy Monday, y’all!
