So Sunday morning he told me that he had to run to
Me: "So what's this, Mister?"
Him: "Oh, I needed a new tool chest."
Me: "On wheels? Are you going on the road?"
(I didn't want to tell him that his new rolling tool chest looks just like the ones they sell at Joann Fabrics for scrapbookers).
Me: "Mister, did you get a new drill, TOOOOO?"
Him: "Nah, I've had this one for awhile."
Me: "How long?"
Him: "About 40 minutes."
Me: "Mister, did all these doohickeys come with the drill?"
Him: "Not exactly."
Him: "They don't. I got these at the running store and the guy told me that they last a lifetime."
Me: "Who's Lifetime?"
My only consolation is those little bright Depot orange beauties are headed to my washer in less than 12 hours.
Do you know what I call my washing machine?
The Bermuda Triangle

When I first walked into the store, I was in awe of its beauty but also a little intimidated. As many of you know, I could never be classified as a "foodie." But between the great signage and the warm, helpful staff, it is truly a most enjoyable learning and tasting experience.
Delicious bottled oils are also available. Chef Joey raves about the truffle products - which actually have truffle in them!
I know what the Mister wants....
the whole store!

Love her centerpiece on her kitchen island.
The table looked stunning. I don't know what it is about it, but I love the looks of a bench at a table.
Chris just painted her kitchen and den the most beautiful shade of blue. It is so light and airy.
Not only can Chris cook ... she can put together the most gorgeous flower arrangements.
Could not get enough of these mouth-watering Truffled Asparagus Crostinis. You can find the recipe here.
Not only is this salad gorgeous... it is positively delectable! The ingredients include melon, Serrano Ham and Arugula. YUM! Chris was sweet enough to provide the recipe here.
Another delicious salad that Chris served is a Pine Nut and Lemon Orzo. You can find the recipe here. Chris also mentioned that she less lemon juice and more Parmesan.
As a note... I have to say that both salads were the perfect compliment to each other and I strongly suggest serving them together.
We enjoyed these yummy baby bundts from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
Chris' dining room is so pretty and painted in a Tiffany blue.
It was the most perfect day! We sat out in this gorgeous setting before lunch and chatted away!
Do these look comfy, or what?
This was our book choice this month which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
