I know how to cook…….

Happy friday to you…it’s been so long hasn’t it.
oh….
i guess it’s not quite friday yet is it…..
sorry…
it feels like the week has been flying by….
alright…
not really….
i realize it’s only tuesday afternoon…..
but i thought i would go ahead and extend an invitation to you…
it’s been so long since i’ve had you over…
come on in..
don’t mind the snow though…
we had about twelve inches on sunday.
Oh…
one quick reminder…
watch out for the killer icicles….
because i don’t do so well around blood…

Please watch your step coming in the front door…..


I don’t know about you….
or your home…
but as for me…
i’m not a big believer in mud rooms
nope…
who needs a mud room when you can just walk in the
front door…..
throw off your boots and jackets..
and leave them for someone else to pick up.

I realize you might have had a long trip through the storm to get here…

so i want you to make yourself at home..
feel free to peruse thru my new cook book…
it was a christmas gift….
and from Anthro….
ha ha…
no…anthro didn’t gift me the book silly…
not that they owe me anything anyways…
really….they don’t.
I know how to cook
by the lovely Ginette Mathiot.
She’s french…in case you were wondering.

Now….
because i haven’t had time to whip up some
Escargots
or…
Oie braisee aux marrons..
then feel free to come into the cucina….
errrr.
sorry…that was spanish for kitchen..
and i’m fluent in spanish…but not so much french…
so that might get me in trouble when i
get off the plane in france…
“donde esta el vino….”
see…..
at least the word VINO is known across the world…
it’s the type of word that everyone should know..
don’t ya think?
Alright….
where was i…
oh!
come on in and grab some cereal….

beggars can’t be choosers you know….

it’s either rice krispies…
apple jacks…
or frosted flakes.
The box might have been open for awhile…
so i’m really sorry if it’s a bit stale…
but don’t worry…
nothing a little milk in a bowl can’t fix..
right!?

When you are done eating…come on over to the wine bar

i realize it’s a bit empty..
{the kids have been arguing quite a bit lately..and i’ve needed to set my clocks to five}
so..there is no good wine left….
only a little port left…
i hope you like port
because i have an amazing recipe that i will share with you…
that is…
if you don’t have to leave.
Now…
won’t you come have a seat….


Alright….
before you make yourself comfortable….
let me explain...
i have had to give up my cleaning ladies…
yes…
i need to save some money for my trip to france..
and unfortunately….
i have forgotten how to clean up…
wait a minute…
those aren’t my toys now are they….
sheesh….
what is wrong with my children!
Alright….
at least my house is a home..
it’s lived in…
all 1800 square feet of it…
it can’t be perfect all the time.
phew…
that felt better.
Unfortunately….i have a little one that does not feel so good.

I’m not quite sure if she really is under the weather or just wanted to get

out of nature camp today.
You see….
at last minute..i signed up both Mason & Lola for outdoor
nature camp.
It was for three mornings..and yesterday they went on a bear hunt..
well…
i guess Lola was just not to fond of being outside for three hours
following bear tracks around in the EIGHT degree temperature.
I don’t blame her…
so here she is…
on the sofa in my bedroom…
missing out on camp today.
I do hope you had a good time hanging out with me…..
how were the frosted flakes and the port?
oh good….
yes..that was lovely…
i’ll see you next time.
xo
p.s. thank you all for your votes on The Homies! I didn’t make the top 6..but i came in 8th..and that means a whole lot..to even be nominated..so thank you very much!
