HAPPIEST FRIDAY, friends! I’m excited to go antiquing with my friend Sarai this weekend. Fingers crossed — we hope to find those elusive pieces of furniture to pull our homes and offices together. We’re going to have a yummy Vietnamese lunch at a favorite spot as well! I’ll also be doing more cooking and baking. This white bean and kale soup recipe was so good that I look forward to making another double batch (I used Italian seasoned seitan instead of sausage if you’re veg too). And I’m going to wing it and make some apple hand pies with cardamom and orange blossom water and maybe some apple cheddar ones! I think watching some horror movies in a 1920s cobra outfit might be in order, too. Have a wonderful weekend! xo Jen ♥
