Week 31 Tuesday (8/12/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Burgundy Mushrooms
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         When I looked at this recipe, all I saw was a bowl full of mushrooms.  I Don’t mind mushroom soup in recipes, but I really dislike the texture of the shrooms in my mouth. The recipe actually sounds good,  probably because she is cooking with burgundy wine, but I bet the dill makes them taste amazing, I absolutely love the taste of dill. My recent dill fix came from a dill cheese from the Farmers Market. This recipe sounds good, but it’s just not for me.
Special Event:  Shopping for Clothes    

       If there is one thing in the world that I hate to do it is shop for clothing. During the second week in August I had to bite the bullet and go shopping as most of my clothes don’t fit at all. Now, this is a really good thing, except that means I have to go and try on clothes for hours. YUK!!!  I have a lot of friends who adore shopping, but I would rather put my hand in blender than shop.
         I went to the Outlet Mall since it is right by my house (and I have never been there before). At the first store, I found several tops, shrugs, and a jean jacket. Yee Ha! I had a big bag. Now, on to the next store. The next store specialized in dresses, which is what I prefer to wear to school. I found a whopping one dress. That’s it – just one. I did find some other tops but left unhappy. I returned home and looked through some catalogs and ordered a few dresses. After I cleaned out my closet I did find some smaller size dresses that were brand new and never worn. So I was doing okay. Then I realized I was just shopping for clothes for now until December. So, I decided to take in some of my old dresses. (I know you hate this thought, Jenny). I had to do some serious alterations as I am down three sizes on top and two sizes on the bottom.  Thank Heavens, I can avoid shopping until the winter.
