My Faves

Something I religiously post on Instagram titled "Things that makes me happy #832752891" are flowers that we get every other week when we go to the market for our groceries. People shouldn't ignore the sale buckets of flowers at Trader Joes. I've found some really gorgeous bunches from those buckets. This time around, we picked up some Tulips and Daffodils. The Calla Lily is from our backyard.



Another thing I'm really excited about is the Foodie Dice. Flipboard, an iOS app is really dangerous especially if you subscribe to some gadget magazines. I showed Amado the Kickstarter video they had for Foodie Dice and he was completely sold within the first couple of seconds. Hoping to put it to use next week. 

New ideas and fresh conversations are always fun to have so I proposed to Amado that we cook dinner for friend atleast once a month. But the catch is we can only invite two friends of ours who's never met each other before. Oh and another requirement would be to wear something comfortable for that night, pajamas would be ideal. This gadget should help with setting a menu for those evenings. 


The set includes 4 seasonal veggies dice and 5 primary dice. One each of cooking method, meats, grains/carb, herbs and bonus ingredients. I will always cross my fingers that the bonus ingredients die lands on bacon.

Just select the current season veggie die, toss that in the jar with the 5 primary dice and let 'em roll. This should eliminate our never-ending back and forth "Whatever you want!" answer when trying to determine what to cook for dinner.
