When I grow up

I haven't really been obsessed about anything for a little while now. Call it the cold, rainy doldrums. Call it pure laziness. Whatever. But I have recently felt that tickling again. And it's for a woman. A woman named Ina.

Working from home yesterday solidified my obsession. During my lunch break I happened to catch an episode of Barefoot Contessa. It was one I hadn't seen (crazy!) and I realized that I really, truly love Ina. No, I more than love Ina; I want to be Ina when I grow up. From her Le Creuset enamelware cast iron dutch oven, to her beautiful yet imperfect presentations, to the supporting cast of characters that seem to flow in and out of her life with ease. Sigh...

She is awesome, I agree. I have one of her cookbooks and I love it!

I am so glad she and Jeffrey are back together. I love her show and wish I had her patience with cooking and baking!

I love how calm she is when she cooks like it gives her peace.
