Of course I can’t be 100% sure of what 2013 will bring, but I’m pretty sure it’ll bring some badass Boeuf Bourgignon and Coq au Vin. Merci maman, pour les cocottes Staub! I impulse-purchased Mastering the Art of French Cooking for myself, so once I feel remotely like eating butter or cream again (oof, December catches up with you), things are gonna get FRENCH around here.
Tonight’s post is NOT brought to you by Time Warner Cable, my current nemesis, who for the last four months has delightfully been charging me for internet despite the hilariously infrequent service and countless hour-long phone calls to Customer Services. They’re sending yet another technician to my apartment. In a week and a half. Ahem. Posts may be few and far between for a while.
Anyway, thanks to the magic of 3G, I want to share with you some awesomeness from my mom’s recent visit. She picked up the most incredible tea towel ever to wrap a present she sent to me a few months ago, not realizing that I would find the towel itself so mind-blowingly wonderful I’d squeal and want it framed and hung in my kitchen. She spent most of her long weekend with me shopping for picture frames, vacuuming my apartment, painting a mirror frame, and helping hang pictures. Because she is really nice to me.
Yes, that’s correct. A tea towel featuring weight and measurement conversions for everything from inches to centimeters to teaspoons to milliliters to ounces to grams to oven temperatures and basically anything you could ever need to cook anything ever. I love this tea towel SO HARD.
I’M GOING TO COOK ALL THE THINGS. Thanks Mom!
