Meet my new best friend ever!!
Did you know that the Gingham Project.org is now helping some pretty amazing little friends? I'm totally in major *heart* with this one...
I have teamed with them to bring you a special treat from spice rich south India. A beautiful, aromatic blend of eight spices perfect for adding a bit of excitement to all your favorite veg and non-veg dishes! This fresh ground spice blend was created by me. and it is their gift to you with each $25 USD donation.
Malnutrition is a serious factor in the lives of many rural children. We plan to add essential nutrients to their daily rice. We will do this by adding delicious, locally grown, whole foods to their school provided meal. In order to pay for this recurring expense, we need to rely on donations from you. One time, monthly, big or small…all donations are greatly needed and tax deductible. Make a donation today, the simple way… click on the donation button on their page .
Let's kick it off the our shoes...and I mean no pun when I say it...but this is about shoes! My darling friend Kristy Call who writes The Diary of Dave's Wife and who went with me to do some amazing crafty-crafts on Valley Dish...
And does all the amazing stuff that's
has finally opened Her Shop!
Next up...My dear friend Heather Lamps! Xoxo. Oooh she's awesome! We've been friends for close to 7 years...and I'm so glad. Okay...this is a vintage shot of Chef Tess (on the right) but I'm showing the superwoman shirt she's wearing...because you know, she's a mom. She needs a shirt that says, "I'm a mom...what's *your* superpower?!" Really a kindred spirit.
Today I visited Heather just for kicks-n-giggles-n...aprons. She's gifted. I'm excited to have her on board with my new vintage apron adventures. That being said, I'm actually sharing her amazing crochet talents. Not many gals my age can whip out the vintage crochet with stealth and Super-mom speed! She taught me to crochet a while ago, but I'm eons away from her speed! Look at this though...
If you don't want bear ears (I don't know why you wouldn't) she also has a lot of other really cute crochet stuff like this...news-boy-cap! Isn't it yummy?!
Today I'm having her design some bold red and black polki-dot
Best Find of the week!!
Now here's something cool. I have epic amounts of organic popcorn and I have been soooo not liking having to add oil to pop it. So...imagine my joy at finding this little doo-hickey this week for right around ten bucks. It's an investment in not having to buy those dang bags of micro popcorn! Eeek!! So excited...see it? :
It's a special kind of bowl with a vented top that make micro popcorn fat free and happy! I do love a good popcorn! My gosh I can't even eat it without my All Purpose seasoning. Soon to be available in stores! Yup...right next to the fat free microwave popcorn bowls at Honeyville farms stores in Arizona, Utah, and California! Oooo. Ahhh. Be excited!
Now on to my Fabulous Facebook friends!
I love-a-love you!!
Remember Dave Bernstein from Valley Dish?! Dave is On Facebook and so fun to chat with when it comes to food!
He made this amazing looking dish...I'm in love with it! Mmm. Dave...you had me at Fontina!
