Happy Monday. Sort of.

Truth is, I woke up kinda cranky. But that's my fault for going to sleep super late last night, staying up to knit while watching HBO (ohmigosh, True Blood is amazing this season! Can that teeny town have any more supernatural creatures? My town is so boring. Just yoga moms like me. Meh.)

I spent the weekend scrapbooking and cooking (therefore eating). So that was pretty dang good. I'm currently working on my middlest's elementary school directory. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only graphic designer parent in that school. But I might be the only parent who's fessed up to being a graphic designer. Therefore, anything that might be considered "design-y" gets pushed my way. Yearbooks, fair logos, fund raising calendars, slide shows. My talent never ceases to amaze me. (I'm being sarcastic here, by the way.)

So. In order to stop my whining, and to cheer me up, here is something I made this weekend.


I had gone to the store to buy some fresh mozzarella, but I was distracted (as usual, ayi!) and ended up with burrata. Burrata is fresh mozzarella filled with slightly whipped heavy cream. Hellooo!?!? Can this thing be any more caloric? I prepped it the same way I'd do a tomato and mozzarella salad. And dang, that extra creamy cheese made this dish so much yummier than the usual recipe. So thank you Mario Batali for teaching me about burrata. Orange is my favorite color too.

You know I LOVE this salad, and I will have to go in search of some burrata, which I have never heard of until now. ;p

Mmmmmm... I need to live next door to you. Not to learn from you. Just to invite myself over for dinner. Oh and to tag along when you go to Target. ;)

(PS You really need to learn to say no. Or at least stop answering your phone and/or emails when it's time to solicit volunteers.)

I'm in the Barb camp of wanting to just invite myself over for dinner. This looks delicious, delicious!!

How many more years of this project do you have? You need to tell people you do something else...like that you're a proctologist. No one would ever call you. ;)
