What’s Making Me Giggle
I stood at the display in the public library reading this and laughing. I keep thinking of it and giggling all week. I’ll never look at some of the iconic Little Golden Books the same, ever again! Everything I Need To Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book by Diane Muldrow
Which Brings to Mind My Favorite Little Golden Book
No surprise that it’s a kitty book! I loved that it had real people–photos, not drawings. I still have it in a box somewhere. My kids couldn’t relate to the little girl–her clothes were “too old-fashioned” ouch! But they DID know the kittens by name and, like me, probably still do. I’m glad we all loved it and look forward to sharing it, someday, with a third generation.
What I’m Looking Forward To This Weekend
A rare day out with old friends who live a few hours away! Cincinnati’s favorite pizza provides a place about half-way for each of us and is just an excuse to sit and talk and laugh. They love traditional pizza (I do, too) with sausage, peppers, onions and extra cheese. I love La Rosa’s thin flatbread Florentine pizza! It’s all good though–all of their pizza is great! Check out the menu. When we all get together, ice cream is usually involved as well, but we’ll have to see what’s available at the location where we are meeting. Cincinnati is blessed to have Greater’s Ice Cream though. But we’re meeting near the city, not in it.
New Food Obsession
These Steakhouse Tater Tots are GREAT! But what’s even better is the Seasoning Mix for them! You could easily make this healthier with baked, seasoned fries or wedges to go with the dip. The dip is easy to lighten as well. (I cheated and used Ranch Dressing and chopped up some sliced jalapenos from a jar).
Newest Fascination–An Very Unusual Job
The Mall of America is advertising for a Writer in Residence. What a hoot! A top spot for people watching and you’d be paid to do it! For their 25th Anniversary the Mall is hiring a writer to “live deliberately” and “be immersed” in the life of the mall. NPR Story here. What a hoot! I visited the Mall in the late 90’s. Camp Snoopy and the people watching were the coolest parts to me. I’m not much of a shopper.
What were your Faves this week? Leave me a comment or a link–I love to see what people are fixed upon at the moment.
