This morning, Mr. Pedantic and I are heading off for a long weekend in celebration of our third (how?!?) anniversary. Apple picking, farmer’s-market browsing, and the promise of sourdough doughnuts await us, and I could not be more ready. I am heading off, slightly medicated due to a mounting head cold that I am trying to ignore and with a full heart. November and December are always a blur so this is our last chance to sneak in a bit of solace before the manic begins. I’m thankful.
I am so hopelessly late, but I have just begun watching The Crown and I am still not sure where I stand. You know I am a Victoria fanatic and though I am sure The Crown boasts greater accuracy, I am having to adjust to the lack - by comparison - of drama. Such problems we have…
If I am ever desperate to get Mr. Pedantic in the kitchen, these cocottes will be the ticket.
For whatever reason, I have been checking off my Christmas lists early this year, and while shopping - almost solely online - I have come across so many fun advent calendars!! While they work best for early Christmas gifts, I love the idea of gifting something that can be enjoyed over several weeks. This list has a few unique options. I am definitely considering the puppy calendar for Sabine.
While visiting my second home - Trader Joe’s - last week, I stumbled upon kiwi berries for the very first time. I was skeptical to say the least, but Mr. Pedantic has a fascination with trying every new fruit he finds so I brought a pint home for him. Truth be told, I ate 95% of the container and I am now obsessed with the tiny green fruits. While I did find the skins to be a little bitter, the inner fruit is just like a traditional kiwi. I am not sure if they will be available more regularly now, but if you can get your hands on some, you should!
Jessica from How Sweet Eats was talking about this apple pie drinking vinegar on Instagram a few days back and now I am dying to get my hands on some. I have become obsessed with the drinking vinegars from Trader Joe’s recently and this sounds like the perfect version for autumn.
Looks like wewon’t be getting my hands on any Prosecco-flavored Pringles but I’m not sure if that is really a bad thing…
I’m just going to leave these Bailey’s Pumpkin Milkshakes right here.
Wishing you all the most wonderful weekend!
