Angel Biscuits from John Besh's My Family Table: A Passionate Plea for Home Cooking How great is that title? Yum, yum, flaky yum.
Wreaths Across America - for $30 one wreath will be sent to the recipient of your choice, and another will be placed on the grave of a veteran (you may specify a state or specific cemetery if you choose). A wonderful way to honor the sacrifices of other families during the holidays.
This tee from Anthropologie. I bought it in a grey-chartreuse-cream small polka dot print that isn't online. Not much to look at in a photo but is so flattering. Definitely worth the price- this is no ordinary tee shirt.
The word anoesis (this popped up as the word of the day on Luke's dictionary app).

So great there is a word for this! But I prefer to call it... bear stuffs.
Can't wait to read Joan Didion's new book. I am number 14 of 14 holds when the library finishes accessioning it. In the meantime, plan to audiobook Year of Magical Thinking (I read it a couple of years ago) and read Where I Was From and Play It As It Lays... I've deveoped a habit of reading (or listening to) one author at a time... after three Cormac McCarthy books it's time for some nonfiction and a female author.
These beautiful watercolors.
Parsnips - so good! Who knew?
Gorgeous upcycled fur accessories from my friend in St Louis.
Po'girl.. A while ago, my friend Scott made me CD with the song Movin' On on it, and I loved it and added A Po'girl station to my Pandora account. When they came through St Louis, I was there-- a rather unique concert because though at a standard bar venue, it was a seated affair and I went by myself. Fast forward to Chicago summer 2010- Luke and I are hanging out in his kitchen when his roommate Alex Maryol (a fantastically talented musician) comes with a friend back from a jog. I look at the friend and exclaim, Are you Ally [the lead singer] from Po'girl???? And she said yes, I am! How do you know me? I replied I was a huge fan of their band and saw them in St Louis a few months before.
Acccording to Alex, Ally thought this meeting-a-fan was pretty awesome even as their band tours Europe and enjoys increasing success.
So whenever I hear their music and in particular this song, which Pandora played during my marathon cooking weekend, I have to think what a very small world it is, and how very wonderful.
