I pick grape leaves in my yard to make them. Chances are, if you live in New England they're taking over your woods or along your fences.

we have 7" ceilings as well (old, old house, plus we're short), very light wall colors have helped make the rooms look airier.

I made a dozen and a half pies for my wedding two years ago, vegan and gluten free. My mom picked up local farm ice cream, and it was so awesome. I posted about it here. http://www.heythattastesgood.com/2009/06/wedding-berry-pies.html

Our living room is 'sterling' by behr and our floors are some sort of wood that we stained a dark reddish color. I love it.

I made these, and gluten free! They were delicious, and I should have looked at the yield before making them so I could have scaled back the recipe. SO many!

We had a tiny budget for our wedding, but we did splurge on a BBQ catering company.

However, I did bake all the pies myself(a dozen and a half) that we used instead of wedding cake, the day before the wedding. It was surprisingly stress-free, and everyone was so impressed. I made the pie crusts ahead of time, then filled them with berries while they were still frozen and baked them 4 at a time.

I posted about it here: http://www.heythattastesgood.com/2009/06/wedding-berry-pies.html

The whole project was less than $100, and was so worth it.

Wholefoods 365 butter is $2.59 or something a pound, which is cheaper than in my local regular grocery stores (occasionally butter is on sale for 2/$5, but not often).

Their 365 brand gluten-free stuff is good too- $3.69 I think for a pound of flour, which is lame but still cheaper than any other prepackaged mix.

Meat is sometimes cheaper (rib roast was $8.99 a pound 3 weeks ago), and seafood is also when on sale (small Maine shrimp was $3.99/lb).

I do my shopping in 3-4 stores (there are a lot of grocery stores within a 10 min bikeride of my house, I'm lucky) and there are absolutely some things I buy at WF because they're cheaper. Look for the yellow sale signs, and stock up!

I grew up with this kind of peeler, and was surprised when my fiance didn't know what to do with it! I didn't know there were other kinds of peelers until I was 25!
