Checking In: The Present of Greens, Cabbage Rolls and Chanel Tweed!


The bounty of produce being gifted to me by my neighbors continues! Try these beans…

What does one do with purple beans? I’m pondering of roasting them, however I dunno. A warmth wave is coming in, and I don’t fancy turning my oven on when it’s boiling exterior.

Oh, keep in mind that large head of cabbage my different neighbor gave me final weekend? I ended up making cabbage rolls with floor beef, rice and parsley.

This was my first time, they usually turned out OK!

I discovered the recipe on the Jenny Jones cooking weblog. Bear in mind Jenny Jones, the speak present host from the 90s? Just a few years in the past she was energetic on YouTube and did a complete bunch of cooking movies, they usually’re enjoyable to observe. It’s been years since she’s posted, although.

Jenny Jones enjoyable reality: earlier than she rose to fame, she owned her personal catering enterprise.

I’ve tried two recipes from her web site to date, the cabbage rolls and a 20-minute meal known as spaghetti with cherry tomatoes, each of which had been gentle, straightforward and glorious.

Again to the cabbage rolls. Jenny says they’re nice as leftovers the subsequent day and suggests frying them in a pan with slightly little bit of olive oil. That’s what I’m gonna have for lunch immediately. YUM!

On a magnificence notice, the tweed quads are up on the Chanel web site. The one with browns, taupes and rosy shades, Brun et Rose, appears to be like actually pretty.

There’s additionally new nude nail polishes that look good, too. I don’t know what it’s about Chanel, however they do such an excellent job of hitting all the correct notes relating to neutrals and fundamentals. UGH, WANT.

What else is occurring, hmmm? Oh, forgive me for dwelling beneath a rock, however I’ve solely not too long ago found the singer Harry Kinds.

I’ve been listening to a random assortment of his music, and these are the 2 songs I’ve had on repeat.

Typically he jogs my memory of Prince and typically he sounds just like the band Phoenix; it’s onerous to pin his style down. For those who get a second give his songs a pay attention.

Alright, I’m off to begin my day. I hope you’ve had a beautiful week to date! Did you get up this morning simply as shocked as I used to be to seek out out that it was Thursday? Sure? No? No matter you’re as much as immediately, I hope you discover a option to discover pleasure in your duties — even the mundane ones.
