Bag Lady...

I love bags. What girly girl doesn't? I really like recycled bags that you take to the store instead of getting those hideous plastic bags that does nothing but harm the environment. I have been known to carry items out in my hand because I forgot my "green bag." While on a recent trip to the store to use my lastest Groupon, oh btw "Hello my name is Robyn and I'm addicted to Groupon", anyway... I was given another green bag. I had a Groupon for this amazing store Midtown Olive Press that sells olive oils and balsamic. It's so cool. They let you taste the oils and vinegars before you decide to purchase it. Once you decide, they pour it in a beautiful glass bottle, seal and label it. After sampling several, Blake and I decided on getting an Organic Tuscan Herb olive oil and a sweet Pomegranate Balsamic.

The balsamic will be tasty drizzled on a salad. We tried the Tuscan oil a few nights ago. I tossed it in some whole wheat linguine...yum. I also poured some in a small dish for dipping our French bread. The kids were like, "Cool just like Carrabba's." All of this was topped off with some Rainbow trout and sauteed spinach.

By no means am I a cook. If you ask my kids what can mommy cook. They will rattle off about 3 dishes. But I do like to try new things. Whether I'm given a pass or fail. I think I got a pass the other night.


My new green bag.


Love the sections. Perfect for bottles of oils, vinegar, wine.

  1. i like these re-usable bags, too - I have so many its ridiculous, and I've even made a few of my own. I like this one you have with the sections - great for trips to buy *bevereages* in glass bottles.
