I found some culinary inspiration over at Decorology today in a post about the Spring cleaning of your kitchen. Look at these gorgeous and inspirational kitchens. I love the antique mirror on the exposed gray brick.
Being a huge fan of organized chaos (striving daily for the “organized” half of the equation) I find this shelf particularly soothing.
I thought I’d instead work on the spring cleaning of my diet. I finally got around to reading French Women Don’t Get Fat which I found to be less an exercise in American self-flagellating than a real appreciation for the simple French meal. To commence this new way of eating, I started with author Mireille Guiliano’s leek soup.
I’ve eaten more delicious fruits than I have in years, put real cream in my coffee (so that’s what it’s supposed to taste like!) relished in toasted croissants, and can honestly say I’ve indulged in every meal. She encourages us to put some ceremony back into our meal – like walking to the market daily (so much better than mindlessly running on a treadmill, non?) It’s a good re-read for anyone who’s been on the self-deprivation wagon since New Years.
Food is good. time to celebrate.
