Here is the recipe for the gouda grits. Be careful with the salt. Mine were waay too salty because I thought it would be genius to guesstimate the 2 ts's of salt. I don't know why I put salt in there anyways because I hate salt, so of course they tasted too salty to me.
You will need:
- 4 eggs
- milk or creme
- 2 sticks of butter (i used 1)
- 6-8 oz. Gouda or Smoked Gouda
1) Boil 7 cups of water
2) Add 2 ts of salt
3) Add 2 cups of grits
4) Bring boil to a simmer, cover and let cook for 20-25 mins
In a seperate bowl:
5) Add 2 well beaten eggs
6) 1/2 cup of milk or creme
7) 6-8 oz. of shredded gouda (i used the biggest hole side of the cheese gratter)
8) 2 sticks of melted butter
Mix everything together in the saucepan making sure to get all clumps out.
Put in caserole dish and cook for 1 hour on 350
Sprinkle a little pepper and enjoy!
So I didn't die from yoga teacher-training, but I have been sore and worn out all week long! I have some pics that will come in a later post.
I've just been rafting around the pool for the past couple of days. Trying to work on my tan for the wedding that I'm in this weekend. I've added some pics of me and Miss P on the raft. And yes, that is a motorized lounge raft complete with drink holder. Go big or go home, right?
I am so excited because tonight I am making gouda cheese grits! I will let you all know how they turn out and will include the recipe in a later post.
Okay, so this is my dear facebook friend, Isabel Camargo. No, I did not know her during my undergrad days at UK (unfortunately) because let me tell you, we would have been bff's. She is from Lexington, but attended the Fashion Institute of Design (a la LC and Heidi ... pre heidi dropping out) in Los Angeles where she interned with THE Trina Turk!!! This girl is GENIUS!! After thoroughly stalking her facebook pictures, I was dying to know who designed her wedding dress ... it looked like Milly to me, but could have been Vera or Carolina.. I just didn't know. Come to find out, SHE designed and made it HERSELF!!!! Oh, and the dress she wore to her rehearsal dinner ... looked very similar to the Milly cabana collection, but nope, she made it herself. Just wanted to share about this little up and coming jewel. She currently lives in Brasil freelance designing, but is soon moving to NYC.
She makes dresses. She will be making one for me, that is for sure. I have attached the pics of her wedding dress and rehearsal dinner dress. Just fabulous if you ask me. And to top it off she is a beaut!
Message me if you want her email, she can make you a dress too!!
Hey everyone! Back from another eventful weekend. I have attached some pics from the bachelorette party.
So, yes girls, it's true. I don't know if it's just "that time of the year" or what, but when I comb out my hair after a shower I am pulling clumps out of my hair. I went through this once before last year, and it seemed to just go away.
YAYYY!!! This is my first tag (i think), which is great because I was having a hard time thinking of what I would be blogging about today (I always try to blog from 6 am-7:30 am (right before I leave for my 9 am yoga class). My thanks to my girl Preppy Princess for tagging me.
Back from yet another wedding. I have a bachelorette party next weekend, then yoga teacher training, then my LAST wedding of the summer!!!
2) Would anyone be interested in buying these David Yurman cookie cutter earrings from me? I am going to put them on ebay later this week, but I thought I might try the blog first. I just have way too much DY and I never wear these. They retail for 400 or something around there, so I was thinking I would sell them for 250.00... let me know if anyone is interested!!!
