Tonight, in the history of cooking in my own kitchen, I had an EPIC FAIL dinner. It was a disaster – completely to blame on a new ingredient that I’ve never cooked with before: Polenta.
I will attempt this meal again next week and will share more details on tonight’s disaster then. Until that time I’m going to be annoyingly cryptic.
Fortunately though, there’s always a silver lining.
Like a giant salad? Thank goodness there’s always a Plan B.
Packages from sweet friends named Whitney would be part of tonight’s silver lining as well.
Whit very generously sent us an awesome house warming package from a great little pottery shop she likes, The Muddy Muse.
Some house numbers to go with our new casa!
Along with a totally sweet and very Waldorf homeschooly Fairy Door for the girls that they are going to love!
I was so touched by Whit’s sweet gesture, I am in love with all three pieces! The numbers are the perfect compliment to our new yellow house! I’m not even going to show the Fairy Door to the girls until after we have moved in to the new house. I’ve got big plans to put it on one of the big old trees in our new back yard and tell them we have a tree with fairies living in it. They are at the perfect age for this and I can’t wait to play.
Thank you Whit for these beautiful pieces of pottery, this care package totally made my day!
I am enjoying some Christmas Eve Tea as I type, even though it’s only Saturday Eve. It’s a spearmint tea with cinnamon and orange peel and is quite enjoyable. I really wanted to try the Chai but it’s going to have to wait until the morning lest I lay in bed awake all night wondering if I hear reindeer hooves on the roof.
Cranky toddlers that finally collapse in an exhausted heap on the couch? Let’s call this tonight’s fourth silver lining. Although bumping this up to number THREE might be more appropriate.
And last, but very far from least, another silver lining that came in a cardboard box tonight.
At least I was entertained as I
made ruined dinner. See? There’s always a silver lining.
