Bougie Girl In The Kitchen: Sunday Dinners


I have fond childhood memories of Sunday dinners.

Dinner was almost always served at 5:15 pm and it consisted of pot roast, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and a slice of pie with a small scoop of ice cream. We would all sit around the table discussing the events of the weekend and our finalizing plans for the upcoming week.

These days, I live far from my immediate family. However, I have remained resolute in my efforts to continue the tradition of Sunday dinner.

Here are a few suggestions for creating a great Sunday dinner:

1. Keep it simple, especially if you are cooking for just one or two people.
For example, a simple menu of pasta, salad, and a scoop of sorbet are tasty options for Sunday dinner.

2. Host a once a month, Sunday potluck meal.
Food brings us together and during this tough economy spending quality time with friends and family is very important.

3. Make enough food for lunch the next day.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
