Sunday supper: mushroom chicken

y’all, it was gorgeous in Atlanta today — gorgeous! all clear skies and cool air. at least for the moment, it feels like fall has arrived. it got me in the mood for some soft, creamy comfort food. (also, it was finally cool enough to run for the first time in months, so i felt…

Sunday supper: lowcountry boil

for the last Sunday supper of the unofficial summer, i wanted to do something seasonally appropriate. i’m feeling like i’ve done so many variations of burgers and grilled chicken lately, i was bored to tears by that idea. we also have had kind of a crazy couple days and i really wanted something i could…

5 things i will not be packing for school lunch

i have extremely little to offer for today’s NaBloPoMo prompt, “What is/was your favourite thing to pack for school lunch?” as a child, i mostly ate school lunches. until i got to high school, when i mostly bought a Diet Coke, chewed some gum and saved my lunch money for cigarettes and Chanel lipsticks. it…

cheers to old fashioned commerce and karma!

i’d hoped to get this up for wine Wednesday, but well, wine Wednesday got in the way. anyhoo . . . in the past couple weeks, i got an email asking if i would be willing to sell one of my domains. it was one that had a brief (though private) life as my blog…

Friday favorites: blog shout-outs!

do y’all fight the urge to start like every third post with something along the lines of “OMG, things have been so crazy — sorry i haven’t posted so much lately!” i sure as hell do. Spy finally got home from his travels on Wednesday, so i’m hoping this weekend things will get more back…

travelin’ man gets a midnight sweetie

did i mention that Spy’s gone again? i can’t even remember what i did 5 minutes ago, let alone whether it’s been covered here. it’s been a crazy several days since i last posted, including a sinus infection that kept me in bed the better part of 2 days and has one of my eyes…
