I am going to one on Friday and bringing 2 calzones - spinach and cheese and pepperoni and cheese. I live in RI and local daily made dough is a very cheap staple here (89 cents a pound) so makes it even easier.

Wow - about a $20,000 nursery - swanky! I like the industrial vibe.

Just did this yesterday. I cook a weeks worth of organic chicken breast at a time. I drizzle olive oil and sprinkle kosher salt and cracked pepper on them and then grill them on the stove top using my calphalon panini grill pan - 4-5 minutes each side. The outside gets a nice sear and then I remove them to a plate and cover with foil until cool. They stay moist and juicy this way and then I cut them up in dices and put them in individual baggies and it makes it so easy to make a salad each morning.

Fridays mean homemade pizzas and either pepperoni and cheese or steak and cheese calzones - easy and quick with leftovers for an easy lunch on hectic Saturdays with the kids.

I was always an Earl Grey fan - but just recently had the best tasting tea I have ever had....Wedding Imperial Tea by Mariage Freres in Paris - it has notes of chocolate and caramel - astounding and worth every penny. Dean and Deluca carry it in the states.

I LOVE Trader Joe's. I used to drive 1 hour away to go about once every 2 months for years and years - now they opened 10 minutes away - heaven. They do not have everything I need on a weekly basis - and I have found it is much more economical to shop at a combination of places rather than a traditional supermarket. I may be able to do one stop shopping there - but my bill is probably twice as much. I have made up my own Trader Joe's shopping list and get regular items - love their new quick cook steel cut oats too.

Ok - don't laugh, but there is a recipe for an almond cake on the back of the label of the "Solo" can of almond filling - and it is unbelievably delish - just dust with confectioners sugar - it is wonderful.

And if you live in RI or around...they participate in the wonderful Foundry Sale at Christmastime and you can get their beautiful work for a nice discount - great way to start a collection or get great gifts. I have a set of Tin Woodsman measuring spoons - but this year - I need a set of bird spoons for my kitchen.

As I JUST took our highchair cover to be dry-cleaned for the 4th time - I would LOVE this chair. Why do they even make chairs that have covers that need to be dry cleaned anyway....if I don't win it - I'd consider buying it!

LL Bean has a cottage bookcase both in horizontal and vertical - love it in porch blue - and very reasonably priced.
