Above is a photo that has absolutely nuthin' to do with nuthin', but I liked it so thought I'd share it. It's amazing to me how many folks do not like Brussels sprouts. People! If you'd just give them a chance, you'd discover lovely crunchy goodness. This tray was part of our Easter repast. When they were roasted, they were stirred into a platter of baby veggies - carrots, cauliflower, shallots, etc. Pretty darn delicious, though Jules and I had a lot of trouble this year getting everything to the Easter table cooked properly and at the same time. A rather discombobulated cooking day - and that doesn't happen very often to the two of us!
On another note, I followed Miss LaLa from her old abode here in ~Cocktail Corner~ to her new home in Wilton yesterday. It's quite bittersweet not to have her right around the corner from me anymore. Do you know how far Wilton is from Cocktail Corner?? A looooooong way away - about 20 minutes too long - especially considering she was all of 20 seconds away before! This is really going to put a crimp on our back-and-forth visits, I tell you!
As Lauren said, their new condo is like a doll house. Most of their things are in and you can feel how cozy it's going to be. The only sideways note is Dora-Dog. She cannot figure out what has happened to her world! She's already escaped once (Augie, remember to close that front door!) as she's not yet figured out she can't just run outside any time she wants anymore, and spent the time I was there either whimpering sad sounding Dora-speak or following us from room to room. She also spent a great deal of time jumping up on the furniture and beds - probably to give everything a fresh scent of Dora (not to be confused with Dior).
