feast your eyes, blow your mind

If you have kept up with us you will know that we are planning to retile our Mexican kitchen. Toward that end I purchased "Mexicocina" by Betsy McNair and Melba Levick. WOW! That's all I can say! WOW!

This title is nestled alongside my two other Mexican d├ęcor books, "Mexicolor" and "Mexican Tiles." Mexican culture is madly in love with color, design and crafts, and these three books show off all three to their best advantage. I am going to have a very fine time designing my new kitchen! The imaginative use of color, pattern, paint and tile is truly amazing. I'm not sure I would be brave enough to live in some of those spaces. But it's great to dream!

Out to dinner with my at-least-once-a-month-I-don't-gotta-cook group. Il Fornaio in Sacramento. Spaghetti alla Tonino for me. Thin spaghetti with shrimp, scallops, baby octopus, cherry tomatoes, capers and oregano. Delicious.
