“Apparently I’m running a soup kitchen for caterpillars now. I found one devouring one of my basil plants the other day and couldn’t bring myself to get rid of him. He’d be eaten by one of the nasty giant crows that terrorize our neighborhood. We have to at least give him the CHANCE to turn into a butterfly…
Tending the insect buffet is keeping me busy, as are a number of fun summer projects like my image for this week. More on this colorful craft soon!”
*Who says parfaits can only be sweet?
*I sort of wish I didn’t know about this recipe for one peanut butter cookie. Dangerous.
*If only we had more outdoor space; this looks like so much fun! Some day, maybe.
“My new office is dog-friendly. And it’s awesome.
This is my first dog-friendly office and it’s even cooler than I ever imagined it could be. All the pups are well-behaved and sweet and although they mostly stay beside their owners on luxurious little beds, sometimes they come around for snuggles and/or a chance at a bite of your lunch. Even better: PUPPIES. A coworker has brought in her 14 week old Labradoodle a few times in the past week or so and I’m tempted to STEAL HER SO HARD. Someone get me a puppy!”
* Fruit Kabob Name Cards are basically the most adorable idea for a summer party. Since I’m not sure how I feel about seating charts for casual occasstions, I love the idea of using descriptive words! Maybe “Congrats” for a shower or “Adios” for a good-bye party?
*I don’t eat mangoes, but I have struggled mightily with peeling them for others. I’m excited to try this technique on my next attempt!
* No commentary needed: Blow Pop Martini Jelly Shot.
One year ago: A delicious take on pasta. Try it with an olive and almond tapenade!
