Staying In

The combination of spattering rain, laundry begging to be done, holiday travel packing needing to be planned, and the acquisition of a new cookbook all leave me with no choice but to do one thing on the weekend - stay in.

That, and we've had some beautiful breads grace our kitchen lately. What more does one need? (Butter, yes - but that's a given.) So that's what we did this weekend. And by 'we' I mean 'I', although I had my partner by me, cleaning and tasting all the while.

The Europhile in me cannot get enough of Nigella Lawson's cookbooks lately (note the new purchase above) and this Brit has been inspiring me left and right. She's got an arms-wide-open approach to both cooking and life that I just love. See her for yourself.

So, here's to good bread and being inspired. Hope you all have a great Holiday.
