Elephant garlic

On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I'm finding it very difficult to make it to work at a decent hour. You see, I've brought this on myself by exiting the subway at Union Square. I get transfixed by the sights and smells of the farmers market and end up buying so much rhubarb, corn, tomatoes, and berries that I'm begging the farmers to take a credit card so I can get more. But on Tuesdays and Thursdays I sail across the empty square and only have to dodge the Greenpeace or Children's International volunteers.


I'm sure we're all in the mood with something refreshing to drink, especially when in this heat I only have the appetite for salads or tomato slices tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Check out the  recipes for Agua Fresca made two ways on A Beautiful Mess: with watermelon and mint OR cantaloupe and thyme. Delicious pairings of fruit and herbs.

Sometimes a recipe name just grabs you - today Heidi of 101 Cookbooks posted the lyrical-sounding Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter recipe. Always nice to have something more exciting than plain butter on my morning toast.

I think scallops are our favorite thing to cook on a Sunday evening. The recipe from Sweet Paul isn't really anything different from what I already make (except for the addition of the dill), but it's nice to have it written down.


Finding clothing for my little ones is hard, hard because I find myself shopping at the same two or three brands constantly and never reaching beyond. I love this post by Oh, Joy on her subscription to a super cute monthly kids clothing club, Wittlebee. You pay $40 a month, give your pattern and color preferences and get a box full of selections from different and emerging designers. Might have to try this out (plus you get a package each month!).

Interior design:

Giveaway from I Heart Organizing to win two $50 gift certificates for some new hardware for your home. I could use some drawer pulls for sure.

See you all tomorrow :)
