(Wooooooo 2012!!!! Happy New Year Everyone!)
2.) John turned thirty (Woooooooo Happy Birthday John!!!!)
3.) Julia and I have tested our respective parmesan soup recipes, and concluded that both of our recipes, while delicious, were slightly flawed. I will include her (now revised) recipe in the next posting, and will also highlight the changes to my recipe in my previous posting on parmesan broth soup.
4.) Somehow in the middle of all that, I also managed to con John into painting the bathroom. Not on his birthday mind you. I'm not completely heartless. : ) The bathroom was just not doin' it for me. Although I was completely in love with the color, Healing Aloe paint (Benjamin Moore 1562) it just didn't POP enough-- it didn't have enough contrast against the flecked-white wall tiles we're stuck with (yay- rental!) BUT! I also didn't want to make it too dark or too colorful in there, since it has a lovely sort of spa-like quality with all of those mirrors and the chandelier.
