I took a drive. In my 19 and 95 Ford pickup. Down the country roads. Windows down. Music up. After getting some nutrition (cheetos and Dr. Pepper), I hit the back roads for some garage saling.
I found this chick pretty early on.
Wanna know what is inspiring me to design new logos and create a website for the new store?
Steel beams, baby! Yup! You are looking at the skeleton of the future home of The Primitique. (It is perfectly acceptable to throw your hat in the air upon seeing this progress. I did.)
As with all new builds, one never can hang their hat on a "ready" date until things are more, shall we say, "ready?" We want to open Labor Day weekend. It's possible that we'll open Labor Day weekend. Might I suggest that when you write it in your calendar, you use a pencil. When the ink date gets closer, I'll let you know. My heart beats fast for a big ole, fun grand opening!
In the meantime, I am going garage saling in the morning. I am so very inspired to shop! (cuz, I've had problems with that in the past)
Happy Weekend! ~Mindy
I'm a sucker for a good writer. And that, my dear friends, she is. She has been blogging for years. Where have I been? hmmm
As I shared her with other friends, they knowingly nodded their heads and began to tell me about Pioneer Woman Recipes. I know that not all of you will remember my trials in the kitchen; you can click HERE to read about the Cheese Crisp Fiasco. I am not a natural. Never have tried very hard. But, when I have, it hasn't always been a celebration.
For his birthday dinner Dad chose Brisket, au Gratin Potatoes, Pinto Beans (we call them red beans), Cornbread and Chocolate Trifle.
After reading The Pioneer Woman's recipes, I volunteered to make the brisket, potatoes and beans. Wasn't I brave?
I printed PW's recipes, went to the store with David (he scratched his head with me as we called Mom to ask what "heavy cream" was), and headed to the kitchen for some marinating. On Sunday, David was right by my side, wondering where this domestic goddess has been in the almost 3 years we've been dating. I must have been channeling Ree Drummond. It was easy!
The brisket? Holy cow, it was amazing. Moist. Falling apart. And HA! I made it! Wow!
David and my family are happy Ree Drummond was born, and they are happy that I discovered her. We may never be the same after all this celebrating!
Do you cook Pioneer Woman recipes? What is your favorite?
Happy Monday! ~Mindy
