This little piggy went to Market...then slipped....OWEE...Broken toes! Plus, scoring Giada's Everyday Pasta cookbook.

Being a clumsy person I acquire more than my share of bumps and bruises………now I have fallen off the bottom steps at the house and broken two toes. It’s the Home toe…you know, the one right next to the Market toe (or big toe as it’s commonly called) and that Market toe as well. Nothing to be done about it except keep it elevated, apply ice and let it heal on its own. It’s not as if I were going to play soccer or run……….still, this is interfering with my walks and shoe choices.

Don’t even get me started on boots. Oh, how I looked forward to boot weather and sporting my emerald colored cowgirl boots, or motorcycle boots or my sporty black knee highs with the laces. But noooooooooooo

Now I have to wear slippers. Shit.

What else is new...... Book news
On the cookbook front I managed to acquire a copy of Giada De Laurentiis' book Everyday Pasta. My review of that may be found at Novel Meals HERE

First recipe I tried was Angel Hair Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese.

Loved it. Definitely a repeat for us in meal planning.

Lately I have been on a mission of reading Jane Austen themed books and watching similar themed movies. (The girly movies commence when Doug is out with his telescope) Don’t know what jump started that interest but…there you have it. I am reading By a Lady and finished Lost in Austen recently. Have not added my reviews to Goodreads yet.

(I have not put Peter Robinson aside; his books are intermixed with the Austen themes)

That's about it for me now. Reading, writing, eating...the usual. Going to work to make money for vacations and fun stuff. Hope all is well in your world.

So sorry to hear that you broke two of your toes. I know from personal experience it "toe-tally" sucks. Once upon a time I had a frozen 3 pound pork loin fall on my little toe. It's a funny story, but it really hurt and definitely cramped my style for awhile.

I have that Giada book and I really like it. I would have extra goat cheese on my pasta too.

Hang in there. Hopefully you can still wear your boots later in the season.

Thank you Kim. It's getting better but now we have lovely cold weather (it was 33 degrees this morning) and I sure want those boots!
