I didn't really think I'd have a lot of these posts because I really don't want to talk a lot of shop, kitchen shop, that is. But, since my responsibilities at the store have recently changed I will have a lot more time on my hands, and that means a lot more random thoughts.
Here are some from Tuesday.
I eat a TON of hummus. I eat it basically every day. That's not really that abnormal (for me anyway), but I just feel like I've really upped my intake since being here.
I copied some good recipes today from a cookbook called the Buttercup Bake Shop. It's somehow related to the Magnolia cookbook I commented on earlier. I can't wait to try out some of the cakes!
A few of the ladies at the store and I have started working on the Vail Daily's crossword as a group. It's so slow these days there's not a lot to do but take a crack at it. Crosswords frustrate me to no end. I really think they're something I should be very good at, but I'm not. I normally get annoyed and throw in the towel. My goal by the end of the summer is to finish one!
Staring out at the store from behind the register while writing my random kitchen shop thoughts reminds of Linds C.'s The Cubicle. I've still never seen those Linds!
We play the same music in the shop for DAYS on end. I finally changed it out today. The new mix? A blend of a bluegrass version of the Dixie Chicks, Mancini plays Mancini, The Best of Billy Joel - Disk 1, and something from an Italian restaurant.
I was telling one of the ladies about my garden in D.C. earlier. I'm really going to miss it! And the peony! I might have to start some garden updates with a guest blogger and fellow plot sharer Sean.
That's it for today. Slow.
