there's nothing like a quiet february weekend to be in the kitchen making some serious comfort food. it began saturday morning with cinnamon rolls (from the can, don't judge, they're awesome). then we moved onto from scratch red velvet cupcakes (husband's request) and our first attempt at bolognese. both recipes from barefoot contessa's amazing new cookbook (we've also tried the lemon chicken & tuna sandwiches, which are awesome). we shared these with dear friends on a candle/mason jar lit saturday night. it was wonderful. p.s. i love our bulletin board in the kitchen, so i thought i'd share!
two other weekend highlights: 1. sushi & this movie with ryan on friday night (more on the movie in the next post!) 2. going to old navy on sunday afternoon, inspired by this friend who i called last weekend while she happened to be "at gap getting new knits/basics." i'm listening to her thinking, "yeah. i'm always looking for that basic to go under a sweater/cardigan and i never think to do anything about it." so, old navy had some awesome deals (got two shirts for $8!) and they were oh so soft. plus, i feel prepared for the end of winter/spring. i love friends who inspire you to do things that make your life easier/better.
