Phew! I don’t always say this but I CANNOT believe June is already over. I wish it wasn’t. I wish I could do it all over again. June was pretty cool. I feel like April was a big gigantic downer but June was different. It was full of a lot of productive work on my book. Lots of failed recipes. I’m talking TONS, but a few really good winners.
In between work and more work, were moments that were pretty amazing, mainly CORG-A-BUNGA. We’ll get to that later, but first…
I want to share a picture of the pie that bugged me to no end. After a million times making it I realized it wasn’t my fault. Peaches leech way too much water and it messes up the custard over and over again. So goodbye, peach custard pie. Goodbye, I will not miss you.
I love Jane Austen and Hunter boots and rainy weather and wild flowers and PG Tips and corgis (her!) and I love, LOVE shepherd’s pie. Like, love.
I know on Pinterest we’re getting all Easter and Spring crazy. Like, seriously let’s just chill on that for now. The time when we shuck fresh peas, go on scavenger huants and wear pastels is near, but for now, let’s just eat some warm potatoes and mutton, okay?
It’s been crazy cold this week in Los Angeles. And I know in places that have real winters (hello east coast!), it’s even colder. A bowl of this stuff is what cold-weather dreams are made of.
Let’s just enjoy the now and stop trying to make Spring happen in February!
My dream has come true. I’m now the official dog mama to a baby corgi named Amelia.
That’s right, Amelia…like Amelia Bedelia. Amelia is a really pretty name–it’s child-worthy, actually–but dude, did I loooove those books as a kid.
Amelia Bedelia did her housekeeping duties so literally, like that time she put sponges into a sponge cake. And this baby corgi is literally the cutest thing I’ve ever laid eyes on. The name fits.
When I first saw her, I cried. I’m guessing it was one part charming and one part terrifying. There was just so much raw Adrianna-LOVES-corgis-emotion running through my lil’ body that I just couldn’t help it.
This blog post is all about her first walk. I was an epic one. (Not really.) And I’d like to introduce you two…
