Bloomin' Lilies


Remember last week
when I showed you

The lilies are blooming, and aren't they pretty?
I got these at Whole Foods for $6.99

Whole Foods and Central Market are my favorite places
to buy pretty flowers

Wine Snob Confession #15

While at Whole Foods the other day,
I picked up this wine  for about $11
Times Ten Cellars is local to the D/FW area
I would definitely buy it again

Cookbooks I'm Coveting

I was in Costco on Saturday, and I saw these 2 cooksbooks.
Unfortunately, I was on a strict budget so I couldn't get them..
....yet

Reata Southwest Cookbook by Mike Micallef
I absolutely love the Reata Restaurant in Fort Worth
I have to admit that it has been a while since I've eaten there
It is my favorite restaurant in Ft Worth
I might even say it's my favorite of all the D/FW restaurants
I just have to get this book!
It will be mine !


This is the 2nd time that I've seen this cookbook
The Texas Cowboy Kitchen by Grady Spears with June Naylor
Check out Grady's site here
(There are some other cookbooks of his that I want, too)

I've been intrigued with this rustic cooking style
since we attended a BBQ back in May where they served
this pie that was cooked on open fire

I gave it to one of my foodie friends for her birthday
