cornish game hen

Just a few leftovers from my week:

  • I think whole chickens and Cornish game hens are funny food props.  I like to make them sing and dance, even if I'm the only one in the kitchen.  True story.  Last weekend I made a simple dinner of game hen, marble potatoes and carrots, similar to this recipe. I trussed it and everything. 
  • Wonder Twin pinned this idea and I think it's brilliant!  Instead of buying a bed skirt that slides all over and is impossible to put on straight, upholster the box spring with a staple gun!  Now I'm in search of the perfect fabric.
  • My Great-Grandma Pat used to sing a nursery rhyme to me when I was little, but it was in Polish so I never understood a word of it but it had hand motions, similar to "This Little Piggy Went To Market" and I remember it was about birds leaving a nest.  Somehow I stumbled on this explanation of the poem and now I know what she was saying!  I wish I knew someone who could say it still.  Jake would get a kick out of it.
  • Isn't this forest animals print adorable?  I might need it.  And not just because there are dancing squirrels.
  • If you watch Downton Abbey you MUST watch this clip from Jimmy Fallon!
  • Aren't these linen tea towels wonderful?  I am a sucker for a tea towel.

...and don't forget...

Today is Twitter Tuesday with #careyandbree!  It's a Twitter party with myself, Bree and some of our best buddies, where we talk about... whatever crosses our minds!  Recently we decided that Bree's favorite animal is a fox which set off a whole chain of fox-finding-fun.  Who knows what today will bring!  Join us on Twitter by following hashtag #careyandbree!
