The Simply Luxurious Life®: Short and Sweet  

July 10, 2010

Short and Sweet

The sweet arrival of Saturday and that feeling of waking up and reminding yourself there is no need to rush.  Relief, a bit of a smile and one more quick hug of the pillow. Ahhh . . . .

You may have noticed that yet again I did not have a Foodie Friday post.  In my defense, it was not due to lack of trying to produce one.  My first attempt at Julia Child’s Filets de poisson Gratines a la Parisienne, while a misread of the directions resulted in a slight catastrophe in the kitchen, has only strengthened my resolve and understanding of how to read her recipes.  The second time is going to be a charm. After all, it is not a failure unless you refuse to learn from it, correct? And I most definitely feel I learned something already.  Trust me, when it done successfully (which will be next time) I can’t wait to show you.

As a result, my dinner last night was very unexciting (well, it was exciting in it’s own way, just not very enticing), and I couldn’t bring myself to have a glass of the bottle of chilled viognier I had waiting.  (Although, that probably wouldn’t have been very placating.) For now, feast your eyes on the truffles above as a temporary replacement.

Upon looking back over the past week, I realized I have posted far  more than I expected.  The fashion world really did have my wheels turning.  Here’s a look:

I can't wait to see how the second attempt at Julia Child's recipe turns out. I'm so challenged in the kitchen - I admire anyone who can cook. Have a beautiful weekend!
