Big announcement! There is a new magazine in my life right now, and her name is Martha Stewart Living October 2014. We met at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, next to the chocolates and the pens that look like unidentified-crustacean claws. I think we're going to be very happy together.
I've actually never purchased a Martha Stewart magazine (or book? or anything?) before, but I've also never been a thirty-four-year-old lady with time to kill in an airport before. Life can lead you down some surprising paths, kids! You just gotta keep saying yes. I appreciate that this issue includes a recipe pull-out containing "Money-Saving Meals" that are in fact appealing and cost-effective, although I kind of doubt Martha ever personally demands to be brought a meal of rice and ground beef.
|Some people wouldn't even bother with an "insert for the poors," is all I'm saying.|
Braised chicken with sauerkraut is hearty and autumnal!
|Plus my children love sauerkraut because they are beautiful little weirdos!|
I couldn't find escarole for this soup, although I admit I did not try very hard.
|I only looked in the "kale" section.|
Anyway, I'm so inspired that I think I'm going to make October the Month of Martha. Look, I can follow her very own calendar! I mean, I'm going to have to get a dog and a cider press and a gig at the New York Food and Wine Festival and, ugh, do Pilates, but it should be a lot of fun!
Yeah, Month of Martha, what do you think? I mean, would the wordplay work better if I waited until March to do this? Probably! But who can resist this loony bird for that long?
|Not this gal.|
Anyway, whatever, it doesn't start until next week, everyone back to work.
