Things that make me smile.

August 26, 2011

Spaghetti with meat sauce, my favorite meal.

Picking up burrata and ciabatta from Antonelli’s, and giggling on the way home because they rhyme.

Getting my first issue of Diner Journal in the mail.

Me: It’s hot outside.

Him: It’s a hundred and f*ck.

Bumper sticker seen on Lamar: DON’T DALLAS MY AUSTIN

2 1/2-year old Opal, as she tries to use her fork to eat her rice: Mom, can you help my rice?

*   *   *   *   *   *    *   *   *

Me: I’m really nervous that I’m becoming the crazy cat lady.

Him: Well, at least you’re a hot crazy cat lady.

Me: So, the guy who plays Neville Longbottom is kinda gorgeous now.

Him: He’s Neville Hot-bottom?

*   *   *   *   *   *    *   *   *

Him: Last night I had a dream that you were naked in the Oval Office. I asked you why, and you said, “It’s just so wonderful to be in here, I just wanted to soak it all up.”

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    So glad to bring you all some smiles. Linds, I love it!

    Liz, here it is: Brown ground beef and drain. Stir in Rao’s Marinara Sauce. Sad, but true… this is my favorite brand of pasta sauce, and I like it better than those that I’ve made. 🙂

    Wei-Wei, send us some of your rain!

      Oh good! I’m glad to know to try that kind! I have yet to find a “straight out of the jar” sauce I love, but no judgment here! I TRY to find one… just haven’t yet. Will try Rao’s!
