Things I Love Thursday: Sept. 2, 2010

It's National Potato Month!: How did I not know this was a real thing? From my bio and many, many, many, many (there could probably be a few more manys, but I'll stop now) blog posts, you all know how much I love potatoes. I will be finding a number of ways to celebrate this month and probably increase the number of manys when it comes to blog posts and potatoes.

Lady Gaga Cookies: These might be even better than the Lady Gaga Cupcakes I mentioned in my first Things I Love Thursday post. The one for Bad Romance is my favorite, but probably because I love the heck out of that song.

Chisum and Me (circa 2004)

How to Make a Grass Pot for Cats: I should definitely do this because of the few times I've had a plant in the house, Chisum has decided that he wants to eat it. All of it. Plus, he's a hungry guy, so a little extra good for him food might make him a happier kitty. Look at him! He loves eating and sometimes he loves me.

A Bit More Button for Toasters: This happens to me all the time - I make toast and I think I've picked the perfect level of desired toasty-ness and what happens? It's undertoasted. So I put it back in and then I overtoast it. A bit more button, like the one on this toaster, is just what I need. I love that of all the technology developments going on right now, someone decided that this was something that needed to be worked on right away. Dear developer, I salute you.

Album Tacos: Music? Good. Tacos? Extra good. Put them together? Awesome! I really think musicians should think more about how amazing tacos are and just put the tacos on their album covers to begin with. This is an incredible idea.

Street Food in Germany - Döner Kebap: Serious Eats knows good food and doner kebaps are one of the greatest things ever to exist. I already talk about food carts all the time on this blog, but before I even started this wonderful thing, I was already obsessed with street food. In Germany and in fact, much of Western Europe, döner stands are everywhere and everyone who runs them are among the most friendly people I have ever met. Aaron and I went to the same one twice while in Paris and the man behind the counter introduced himself to us through broken English, asked our names, and told us he would see us again tomorrow, all while giving us delicious, delicious food. These stands often have falafel too, so you know I'm happy. If you haven't had a döner kebap sandwich yet, try to get one. They are so, so worth the search.

Benessere Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars: I'm planning a field trip here with Kirsten because we both love a tasty olive oil and balsamic should be on almost everything. It's what got Aaron to eat salad!

Birdy Juice by Mats Ottdal (of Jeksel)

It's 90210 Day!: Sept. 2, 2010 or 9/02/10 is the day to get involved in some cheesetastic drama with all of your wealthy friends. Make sure not to get slapped! Celebrate by eating peach pie or diner food. It's once in a millennium people! We have to celebrate!

I'm also loving: Promising my famous cookies to Lindsay and knowing how excited she is, even though she's only typing that to me; ginger ice cream from Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream; peaches from the farmer's market that taste so good, they should be illegal; "Ar-gu-la. It's a veg-e-ta-ble."; talking canning with my mom; when Aaron opens the front door and gets excited because it smells awesome because I've been baking; ridiculously delicious garlic bread from Wild Abandon (plus their patio is amazing!); the anticipation of delicious food at a fabulous farm wedding; my backyard and future garden coming together; savory pies; "Too few people understand a really good sandwich" - James Beard.

What are you loving this week?

Ohhhhh lord have you tried lavender ice cream from Snoqualmie Gourmet yet? I have a very, very healthy addiction to it. It's almost always in our freezer.

I haven't! I saw it at New Seasons, but the ginger just called to me. I have so much ice cream in my freezer right now, but if it's still on sale, I will have to get it.
