Ode to Ina

Oh Ina, the things you've taught me:
  • orange tulips always perk up a bland table
  • just because the food is homemade doesn't mean your friends have more fun at your party
  • make something, fake something, assemble something
  • when in doubt, add more butter
  • a roasted chicken every Friday night can help your marriage last for 40 years
  • no one ever drinks only one cocktail
  • surround yourself with creative people
  • food looks best on white plates
  • learn a handful of classic recipes and then vary the ingredients to expand your culinary repertoire
  • yes, more butter


So, I doubt I can head into Ralphs to pick up some produce wearing one of these giant pom-poms on my head, but I love it nonetheless. From Sonia Rykiel's Paris show:

Little Miss Muffet

J'adore! For now, I will only dream of a yummy pale pink couch. While hubby dearest can handle pops of pink throughout the apartment, I will not be subjecting him to playing his zombie-killing video games on this dainty sofa for fear of irreversible emasculation disorder.
