So my friend Amy has a terrific blog where every Friday, she shares 5 of her favorite things. I am blatantly stealing this idea for my own blog; thanks, Amy! Here goes:
1. “Real Love” by Regina Spektor.
Rami walked down the aisle at our wedding to this song. And as if I needed another reason to love it, it is a cover of an obscure John Lennon tune.
It is in season right now!! Thanks to Allrecipes, I know that the secret to never-bitter kale is to remove that thick stalk from the leaf before chopping. It’s true, I tried it last night and my kale was delicious to the last bite! Rami and I are really hoping that there will be a bunch of Tuscan Kale (the kind pictured below) in our Greenling box next week.
3. Vampire Books
I declare this the summer of the vampire! It all started when I was stuck at the Des Moines airport for 9 hours earlier this month. I bought Skin Trade by Laurell K. Hamilton, and now I am hooked on Anita Blake. Given my previous obsession with Sookie, and the arrival of Dead in the Family this summer, I am racking up a lot of vamp reading! Here are the ones I’ve finished so far this summer:
I plan to head to Half Price Books this weekend to pick up the next couple of Anita Blake Books.
4. Reupholstered vintage furniture.
Want. Want. Want.
