Things I'm Liking . . .

Here are a few things that are making me smile these days:

1. This month's issue of Saveur Magazine.  It helps me mourn the loss of Gourmet, and this month they feature traditional Roman dishes.  Mmm . . . pasta and pork chops.

2. Alyssa Shelasky's Blog, Apron Anxiety.  Her articulate sass is a daily highlight.  I want to put her blog posts to music.  Can't you hear Jay Z and Alicia Keys as you read this post?

 3. The fact that this is what my man does in his free time.  He sent me this picture of a the outdoor dinner he made the other night.  We make a good team.
