Air Kisses to You All..

Thank you for the kind comments and emails I got yesterday from my 2010 post. I really appreciate it.

I know it goes without saying, but it feels soooo good to know you're not the only one out there that is suffering from the same issues. Growing up is hard, our parents were right...enjoy your youth, your carefree misspent youth...it goes by way too quickly.

So THANK YOU to all you wonderful ladies, I really appreciate each and everyone of you.


Now with that out of the way... This arrived with Mr. Jetplane when he came back from Illinois on Sunday. Its my Christmas gift from his dad and step-mom. I knew I was getting it since I specifically asked for it.

I guess its kinda funny for me to ask for a cookbook from his family since, his mother, stepmother, sister, and sister-in-law, all don't really cook. When Mr. and I started dating I asked him what his favorite meal was, because I would cook it later that weekend. He told me Hamburger Helper....yeah ladies that's what I was dealing with.

But I digress, the cookbook is very interesting. Its not just a cookbook, it let's you into Ree's and Marlboro Man's lives. When Mr gave it to me, I sat in the chair and read the whole thing that night, I've never 'read' a cookbook.

I'm excited to get to cooking...Mr. Jetplane loves all the food I've made from her blog. Mr. Jetplane is a meat and potatoes type of guy, but he will eat (and like) other types of food.

I got her cookbook for Christmas, too. And I definitely read the whole thing and enjoyed it! We made her pot roast for New Year's Eve and it was delicious, as always!

I made the fancy macaroni and cheese that she posted just before New Years. Expensive and well worth it. I don't care for goat cheese on it's own, but was wonderful in this dish. I am on the waiting list at QVC for my cookbook. Jealous!
PS I wanted you to know from your pictures last year, that the best present I got this year, was a yellow purse. I hunted and hunted till I found one close to yours. I have been carrying your picture for comparison for about 6 months around. Whatch Cooking lately?

I would love to get her cookbook too but my shelf is already emploding under all the cookbooks I already have haha. I do <3 her blog also!

Definately start using your stand mixer more, once you do you'll find lots of stuff you never thought you would use it for!

Love Ree's book! She's an intriguing woman.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving such a thoughtful comment!

Your pug reminds me of the pug we once had, Smeagol, when we were stationed in Arizona. We had to give him away at 4 months because he'd get way too excited around babies and would jump on them and scratch them. That freaked me out since I was pregnant with Charlie. I'm still sad about it.
