Cheaper by the dozen...

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

Okay - just so that we can all be friends again, I have posted a picture of the cute little juice glasses that I picked up at Tuesday Morning. They are Noritake full lead crystal, and a complete steal at $5.99 each (original price $12 each). The cutest thing about these little juice glasses is that they're only about 3 inches tall. It's hard to tell from the picture just how petite they are. They're precious. They remind me of the old soda fountain glasses - except that these are crystal! Woohoo!

Okay - I posted a picture.... Can we now just all get along???

Oh yeah - I also think these precious little petite juice glasses will be cute for desserts. In fact, the lady at Tuesday Morning who told me about the 'always buy in 12' rule, was also full of other tidbits of information. I should consult with her more often... She told me a dessert that she thought would be perfect for these little glasses. Now I've not tried this dessert yet ya'll; in fact, it sounds a little weird to me - BUT, I truly believe the Tuesday Morning cashier to be very wise... She did, after all, save me from breaking the law of 12... So here is her recipe. I will call it the 'Tuesday Treat':

1. Green Grapes
2. Sour Cream
3. Brown sugar

This is exactly what the Tuesday Morning lady said: "Blend brown sugar into sour cream until it is a very light brown, more like beige. (These are her words, ya'll). Then mix the grapes into this mixture and place into your cute little glasses. Chill and serve. It's light and refreshing, and so, so good! Just trust me, it's good."

Sounds a little weird, huh? Has anyone ever had a dessert like this before? I'll let you know when I give it a try. Oh - she also said it has to be green grapes - not any other color. Again, she's a smart woman so I'm taking her word for it!

Next up, I want to introduce you to Abe. Abe is a boxer.

All right, so we have four dogs.... What does one more matter? Yep, we now have 5 dogs.

Because we really needed another dog.

Abe actually found us. I think news has traveled far and wide that the folks out at Hummingbird Farms are huge suckers and will take in anybody. Even humans. (yes, the cowboy is still living with us!)

Abe has taken to life at Hummingbird Farms quite nicely. As you can see from the picture and my super suede sofa, he has nestled right in and you would never know that he hasn't been a part of the family forever. We're actually quite smitten by Abe and are honored to have him in our home.

What's one more dog? Right?

Thank goodness dogs don't come in twelves. Do they???
