I’m over at Adding Zest to Your Nest today talking about marriage, specifically showing affection within a marriage.

Now we’re going to talk Food and Fashion, because I’ve been making killer turkey sandwiches and walking through the mall.
First the food.
Turkey and cranberry sauce isn’t just for Thanksgiving. I’ve been making turkey sandwiches that would make the pilgrims proud. FringeMan says I can make a sandwich out of anything, and he’s right. Maybe I’m really Swedish, I heard Swedes are in love with the sandwich.
I like breakfast sandwiches, cold lunch sandwiches, and hot dinner sandwiches. Bread and cheese can transform any piece of dull protein into a taste sensation, providing you have good bread. Good bread is essential.
I’m lucky I live in New York, because New Yorker’s make great bread and don’t even get me started on the bagels! You just can’t match New York’s bakeries. Having said that, you can find some good bread in the bakery section of many supermarkets. My supermarket actually gets bread from a local bakery, so all is good.
Once I have good bread, I smear a little whole berry cranberry sauce on one side of my sandwich. Then I layer a healthy portion of Romain lettuce hearts, followed by some oven roasted turkey breast, and a slap or two of Swiss cheese.
And if you throw it a panini pan and toast it all up, heaven on your plate. It’s as good as going to Panera Bread.
So how about your sandwiches?
How do you like them??
Now for Fashion Friday…
The color of DULL.
I told you we went walking through the mall yesterday, and as much as I’d like to say I power-walked the center aisle, I did not. I meandered in and out of every store, picking up kids dresses and browsing through new merchandise.
When we left GAP, my daughter said, “Why do grownups only wear dull clothes? Why can’t they have petty stuff like kids?”
At first I thought “DULL” was an odd choice of words for my nine year-old, but looking around, I realized she is absolutely right. The colors of spring are a bit dim.
Now I may be making an early observation. You see, we still have a hefty amount of winter duds lying around. It seems no matter how drastically to you cut prices on sweaters, nobody wants them in March. It’s downright depressing to buy a heavy cable-knit on the cusp of spring.
Are you seeing bright, happy colors and prints in your mall?
Or are we all destined for a fashion depression?
I did make one purchase in the mall. FringeKid is my demise. I’m strong alone, but she has a way of talking me into making silly purchases, like the rings on special 2/$8.
She got a snake and I got an owl.
And yes, that is my fuzzy red robe.
And double yes, I am concerned that my only daughter has a thing for snakes.
If their fashion posts aren’t up yet, give them time. They’re reliable shoppers. 😉
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Please don’t forget to pray for Japan. These catastrophes are heartbreaking. While I sit and ponder spring fashion, they are fighting for their very lives.
