My career (and it is a career) of cooking is not yet four years old. And I have not been the most excellent of students, studying technique, pouring over the plethera of cookbooks available, planning new and exciting recipes each night… My kind of cooking could be referred to as “Meat, starch, veggie, check check check.”

 So the idea that I might fail is not to be counted out. Today was such a day. The Meyers were coming into town on their goodbye tour before moving to Chicago, and I planned a roast in the crock pot, a thing I have done more than once with success. I went to a po-dunk Ingles to buy a pork roast and couldn’t find one. Instead I found a beautiful beef roast and delightedly bought it. I mixed up a marinade and gravy, added butter, rubbed my meat down with salt, browned it in butter, put it in the crock pot with onion, red-skin potatoes, and carrots. The house was clean, the laundry was clean, my dinner was cooking.  And then, not too long before my guests arrived, I cut into my roast. It was still bloody. We had pizza and crazy bread.

That was this Saturday. Last Saturday, pictured, I spent with Olivia.

Then we did what girls to best-shopped. And I found a fall-appropriate purse :) So I’ve stopped carrying around my green flowered spring-like cloth purse and replaced it with this beauty.

And then at Goodwill, I fulfilled my wish for a “velvet” jacket. Of course, I’ve been wishing for somthing sleek like navy blue, but as it is I now own a magenta one. Reminds me of the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.

jacket... pearls were a gift from a very rich lady :)
