After months of complete disregard for my home and especially my kitchen, i'm reconnecting with my inner domestic goddess and i'm LOVING it. Last weekend i made a delectable beef daube provencal (aka "stew") that i finally polished off tonight. Next i'm going to try to master chili and cornbread (have been inhaling Whole Foods version these days), and this weekend i might even give red velvet cupcakes a shot (i'm not much of a baker..). I've been playing around with my apartment and am happy with the progress, albeit slow. And today after work i stopped by Breed & Co., an Austin jewel, and picked up some chalkboard paint. I've wanted to include chalkboard surface in my apartment since i moved in but just never did it. Today at work i decided to give it a go and painted the pantry door. It's great! I hope to use it for inspirational quotes, recipes, grocery lists, etc.
I can't wait until i have a real home. :-)
