ode to russell j

I can do this, because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Russell has less than zero interest in reading my blog.

I adore him.

I love that he loves Vegas the Wonder Dog. I love that he never complains about walking her or about the fact I sleep in until the very last second possible & then run around the house like a madwoman every day before work. I love that he can never make a recipe the same way twice. I love that he is thrifty & makes me delicious, comfort-foodie things like shepherd's pie & turkey chili & then freezes the leftovers so that we can eat them on lazy nights where we would rather just go to Chick-fil-A. I love that he's calm when I panic, that he enjoys silly things like Say Yes to the Dress & the Kardashians & that he makes great pizza dough. I love that he laughs at his own jokes & kisses me on the tip of my nose & always takes out the trash.

But most of all, above everything else, I love that for the past two & a half years, he has always held my hand any time we've gone anywhere.

So I love him. So there.

In the meantime, have you heard about this Engagement Chicken nonsense? Evidently, if you make this roast chicken for your boyfriend, he will propose. Now I'm not one to exchange dinner for diamonds (& I've made a roast chicken or two before, without receiving any proposals), but it sounds really good. And my current girl crush, Ina Garten, has an Engagement Chicken recipe as well. So conflicted!

Tonight: my turn back in the kitchen!

Soo....this doesn't have to do with your post, but if you are going to be in town WE SHOULD ABSOLUTELY HANG OUT!!! If you want a place to crash along the way, mine is always open for you, too! :) Let me know when you'll be in town! :)

That sounds awesome, especially a place to crash! I'll run it past Sasha, we'll look at our itinerary, & I'll let you know what our plans are!

This post is too cute.
Also, I jotted down Engagement Chicken when Ina made it on a rerun like, a year ago. It looks yummy, and even if it doesn't work out initially, I think it probably works as a repeat dish.
Make it after you visit Cali.
