remember that's exactly the place you painted yourself in.



Two old things in my kitchen that I love: a blue floral apron and a hand-embroidered drawstring bag that was used for drying herbs. Both belonged to my great grandmother, Emma Scharringhausen Melzer.

Sometime in the near future I will be adjusting my work schedule, which should allow me to cook dinner more often. For the record, I'm really excited about the idea of spending more time in the kitchen.

  1. But I bet you're even more excited about spending more time with ME. :) I'll even let you cook in my kitchen. How 'bout that?

  9. Good, glad you get to adjust your schedule. Perhaps we should multi-task when we go on our thrifting outing and plan a healthy delicious menu at the same time.

  10. haha anna. i think fondly on those early days when i was graduated from college and only doing a little bit of freelance with just casey anne at home. i baked up a storm and it was awesome. now things are a little bit crazier in the afternoon/pre-dinner time with piano and extracirriculars, but i still do enjoy food from scratch and finding new, delicious healthy recipes. i sent you some today...

  11. I told Al that I wanted to learn to cook, and she got excited. I think I gave her false hope because the idea sort of waned.

  12. Cute! I don't think I've ever seen an herb drying bag like that. Now I'm on the prowl. ;)
