Food: My New Favorite Combination


I’m obsessed with basil. Basil in sandwiches, on pizzas, mozzarella cheese, basically anything. Then there’s lemon basil. It’s even lovelier, but I haven’t been able to find a start anywhere (aka the grocery store, because I don’t venture out much these days).


My mom gave me this lovely lemon basil plant like she was reading my mind. I’ve already harvested quite a bit from it and discovered my favorite of combinations. Lemon basil, strawberries and fresh cream. OH MY WORD. The lemon basil enhances the flavor of the strawberry 10 fold. It’s the funniest thing.


I finely chopped basil and strawberries on French toast on Saturday and it was enjoyed by all. Even Penelope loved the leaves. So there you have it, the secret is out. Find yourself a lemon basil plant. Now.

Early Morning Scam. Uhh… I Mean Surprise


While lying in bed deciding if I should get up or not (it was like 9am), there was a loud knock on the door. Chris and I are hyper-paranoid of random knocks on the door, because a) we don’t like solicitors AT ALL and b) we have recently been victims of credit card fraud. So, when I open the door, my first thought was:

Close the door! She’s trying to sell something!

All she asked for was my signature, THEN I’m thinking:

If I scribble it and she decides to use my signature for fraud, I’ll totally know. YES.

Then handed me a large gift bag and left.

WHAT the. . .

I opened the card to find out my parents had sent me chocolate dipped strawerries. For Valentine’s day. Thanks Mom & Dad. Chris and I had a great breakfast this morning. Penelope enjoyed them, too.
