Friday Shout Out: Cuts Like A Knife

T to the G to the I to the F, y'all. Such a long week and lots of funky vibes & feelings. It's brutal.

Kind of like these stabby-looking beauties:

We acquired these rustic knives as Scott's dad's side of the family preps for the settling of two family estates. They may have survived Hurricane Hugo in 1989 down at the family's "Goat House" on Sullivan's Island, SC. Rather than tuck the tough old things into a drawer, we thought maybe they could add some interest to our kitchen walls.

So, that's something. If you think it's more Fatal Attraction than Shabby Chic, please say the word. We don't want to be those weirdo folks taking a false stab (how puntastic!) at decorating.

The only thing saving this deadly week: killer cookbooks borrowed from my local library.

- Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi
- Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights by Sophie Dahl

The first has tons of delicious Mediterranean & Middle Eastern-influenced dishes. The eggplant with buttermilk sauce is on my summertime recipes list, as are the Green Pancakes made with spinach, green onions and cumin.

Sophie's book has a crunchy-British Isles- thing going on. I plan to make Flapjacks (a molasses/honey/oats dessert), Swiss Muesli for brekkie time, and Indian Sweet Potato Pancakes for an easy weeknight meal.

I hope you have some mouth-watering plans this weekend. Enjoy!
