I'm almost halfway through Martha Month, can you believe it? So much applesauce, so little time. You know what that sauce looks awfully nice next to? Orange-and-Rosemary-Brined Porkchops.
|I am almost always disappointed in fancy-sounding pork chops, but I wasn't in these, so this brine gets an emphatically approving nod.|
Also pretty cozy up in some Applesauce Pancakes.
|Just snuggled right in there.|
When Martha says to slice broccoli stalks in order to make a salad, I say "How thinly?"
|The answer is…"thinly."|
She also said to put Chimichurri Sauce on roasted carrots, so I did that too.
She didn't specify what the carrots were intended to accompany, so I just made my best guess.
The Calendar also kept me pretty busy this weekend, let's see how I did.
October 10th: "Pilates." You know…I think I probably did some stretching that day. Like, athletically.
"Bathe dogs and cats." Guess she's talking to you, Cat Team.
October 11th: "Morning walk with the dog through the maple grove." If it makes you feel any better about the following picture, I want you guys to know that I waste a LOT more of my own time than I do of yours.
|You have no idea.|
October 12th: "Take an afternoon drive to Cross River Reservoir, in Westchester County, New York." We did not do this. We did drive to a pumpkin patch that day.
|We are almost tall enough for the pumpkin patch.|
"Horseback ride." I'm glad I left this entire line of activity to Anna, because she is really stepping up her game.
October 13th: "Host Martha Stewart Weddings' 20th anniversary party in New York City." I'm going to let this image from my own nuptials tell the story of how much I understand or care about weddings.
|Okay, this is actually just my "dancing face."|
If my failures this week have left you feeling grumpy, just take a big bite of ice cream, worked for Ivy 100%.
