Happy Friday!!! So happy it's almost the weekend. As always, there will be quite a bit of cooking involved. There will be a pasta salad and an arugula salad for Robyn; I am developing a recipe with dried morel mushrooms from Marx Foods, and need to figure out something to make for a friend's housewarming party.
In the meantime, thought I'd share a few additions to my kitchen with you.
Mary gave me these adorable owl measuring cups from West Elm for my birthday. How cute are they? I think I'll use them as regular bowls. LOVE.
When people ask me what I want as a gift, I never run out of ideas ;) I can come up with something that will cost $5 or $500...I'm just trying to be helpful! So when I saw these pretty Marimekko cups, I knew I wanted them (in fact, I have an umbrella with the red design and love it). So Anna was kind enough to give me all 6 cups for my housewarming present. And yes, I realize they are only 8 ounces...that's fine, I'll just fill them up with tea twice. No big deal.
While in New York City for my birthday celebration, I found this adorable yellow set of a mini pitcher and a sugar bowl at a consignment sore. Both were only $8 and are made in Ireland.
And here are all of my new kitchen "toys" displayed on my leaning bookcase! Little things make me happy :) And the sphere on the bottom shelf is the gorgeous mortar and pestle I got to keep from my freelancing assignment.
What new kitchen additions have you purchased recently?
Have a wonderful weekend!!! Cook something simple, delicious and share it with your family and friends!
