The Imports are Here!

by Cate on July 25, 2005

Got a chance to run into the bookstore last night to take part in one of my favorite monthly rituals … picking up the latest cooking magazine imports. Each and every one has something I’m drawn to this month. Donna Hay’s current issue has a feature on bite-size nibbles and tapas (we love tapas!); Nigella Lawson is featured both in Australia’s delicious. (baking secrets) and on the cover of the British Waitrose’s Food Illustrated with her perfect “picnic plans.” Should be some fun reading.


Barnes & Noble Haul

Nicholas had a playdate today. I swear I think it’s harder to juggle his social schedule than ours! No diapers today, and not one accident – we’re very excited about this new phase, believe me. We went to the store this morning to return 3 brand-new boxes of Pull-Ups, and as soon as they saw what we were returning, and Nicholas in the shopping cart, they all started clapping and yelling, “Congratulations,” knowing, of course, the reason why we were returning them. He was pretty excited – they even gave him a small present. He can’t wait to tell his teachers tomorrow.

No new cooking to report today. As promised, I cleaned out the refrigerator and we had leftovers. I managed to make the Dulce de Leche Brownies and will be tackling the Pink Lemonade Wafers tomorrow.

With any luck, an early night tonight. We’re real behind on our Netflix movies, so I’m trying to play a bit of catch-up.

Until tomorrow…

Be Sociable, Share!

What a cute story. I LOVE Costco! Did they have the chairs? I could buy them here and bring them to you if you’ll cook for me! :-)

Sigh … no, no chairs. Careful, if you’re bringing me the chairs, you KNOW I’ll cook for you! :)

I miss CostCo…and congrats on the potty-training! We’re still working on Alex.

We’ve had three Netflix movies sitting around for a couple of weeks. We’ve either been too busy, or (me) not in the mood for what’s here.

I think my husband and I hold the record for keeping a Netflix disc the longest. Last September we rented The Godfather…but it sat and sat until just last week. Yep, we had that disc for ten months!

Ok. Obviously you can find the Donna Hay. Now I need to!

wow – I thought we were bad with Netflix returns. I feel a little better. Congrats with potty training success! It’ll be awhile before I start worrying about that with my son (he’s only 6 mo). but I’ve heard some horror stories from friends. Sounds like you’ve done really well.
