i want this hankie that i found on happy lady eats. i have a collection of hankies going. recently i folded them in fourths and used them as coasters. i also like them as mini tablecloths on my nightstand. so far i've just got a floral theme going but this confection one is super sweet.

my first attempt :) took it to Long Beach on Thankgiving afternoon for lunch with hubby's fam. not gonna post a pic of the finished product because i didn't 'crimp' the edges properly and it looked funny-the top crust simply laying atop the bottom, with a funny, wide wave between-looked like a cartoon smile on Charlie Brown when he gets embarrased.

i'm getting real sleepy, and my cats keep trying to lay on my keyboard which is also discouraging much posting tonight, yet i am suddenly motivated to make a list of things i am thankful for, in honor of the approaching holiday. maybe i'll keep a running list in my purse tomorrow. i bet it'll get long. i'm blessed. what are you thankful for? g'night!

here's a recipe that i've adapted a bit from a new cookbook (Market Vegetarian). next time i make it, i'll take pics. don't forget crusty bread for dipping....and a glass of red wine or two
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
4 oz green beans, (big handful) cut into thirds
3 oz whole wheat spaghetti, (medium handful) broken into thirds
can of garbanzo beans, (or a little less than a can) rinsed
6 roma tomatoes, quartered
6 cups vegetable stock (low sodium if you can find it)
s&p to taste
grated parmesan for topping
heat 2 tbls olive oil in a large pot. add onion, stir often for 5 mins
add garlic, cook 1 min, stir often
add stock, tomatoes, garbanzos, green beans, spaghetti, s&p
bring to a boil
reduce heat, let simmer for 45 mins, stirring often
yay! that's the first recipe i think i've ever written out :)

hi folks, i finally posted some super cute photos from our wedding, taken by our amazing friend Elise. there are MANY more where these came from, but I think these shots capture the vibe of the day. it was an event that i truly, truly did not want to end. (they are in reverse order, oh well)

so, being a vegetarian, i have a tough time with the whole turkey motif for thanksgiving. (i also have a hard time with the fantasy-idea of what thanksgiving means, or in other words the naive perception that all was fair and fun between pilgrims & indians, but that's neither here nor now). Anyway, i can't deny how cute this craft would be, if i had my own children, or my own classroom full of young students tracing their handprints and filling cute fabric with cotton

i've been collecting marinara sauce jars and salad dressing bottles as we finish them off. i'm ready to scrub some labels off and turn them into vases. i love these images i came across on the blog, heart of light. something about single blooms in simple containers is so pretty and can make such a difference in an apartment!!
