we added a few new items to the etsy shop. one of my favourites of the new roster is this awesome vintage wire basket. when i purchased it several years ago, i recall it being called a french wire basket. whether it is or isn't, it's the cutest little piece. it is enough to hold baguettes and wine, i'll tell you that! i think this piece has a lot character. check out the shop when you get a spare moment, friends!
adieu for now!

recap (not to be confused with nightcap)

good morning friends! 'tis a grey, windy tuesday and i'm about to hunker down into a massive to-do list. it should come as no surprise to you guys that i got a cold over thanksgiving weekend. it tends to be the theme for holiday weekends. i was sick on halloween too, after all. but i had a great thanksgiving day. i also got to visit with my dear bestie (in town from nyc) over the weekend. i already miss her because our teeny visit was not enough (considering we haunted each others' houses for years). regardless, i am grateful for the time we did have.
tomorrow is december first. i can't believe how quickly this year hath spun by. i look back on this time last year and it seems like a few weeks ago. so wild! soon, it will be christmas and new years. my 29th birthday. valentine's day, st. patrick's day, easter, and boom! summer again. heavens!
i reckon, i haven't much to say today other than this little catch-up and ramble. i do have a lot on my mind. i ask for positive (and healing) energies for me and mine today; and i send my best to you and yours!
have a beautiful day, friends! enjoy the blustery weather, i know i am. loves!
adieu for now (and more to come),

new addition to nido di gazza

also, we are adding several new photographs and completely new items to the etsy store this week. i'm excited about that. it's been seventeen days since i added an item. what?! i refuse to let it go on that long without addition again!
the item i posted this morning is one of my favourites. it's a (really rather old) vintage vase. it is fluted and a deliciously rich cream colour. i think it would make a lovely addition to any thanksgiving table, personally. heck, it would work for christmas, valentine's day, easter, fourth of july...anything! it's an all-rounder, kids! heh. i amuse myself. see for yourself and keep stopping by the ole shop. a lot of changes are coming!


seven things to open the week with

good morning, friends! 'tis monday and i'm looking forward to the horizon of this holiday week. here are some challenges and some happy things about it. a little pro/con list, as it were:

1. mississippi is missing a day of work this week (thanksgiving) and boy is money getting tighter! we also realized last night that the time he gets of for the christmas/new year break is awesome, but also goes unpaid. how to figure in the inevitable travel (and accommodations while managing to keep the bills paid is one hell of a challenge to begin brainstorming and implementing this week).
2. figuring out what to do for me and mississippi's first married thanksgiving. there's a little bit of pressure on establishing new traditions and maintaing old ones so no one wigs out that things are changing too quickly. *le sigh*
3. not ordering chinese food. it sounds silly but i have major cravings for it these days. plus, the place is right by the house!! torture. money is way too tight to splurge on something that is probably loaded with MSG and completely derails my exercise efforts. damn you siren song of won ton soup and steamed dumplings with delicious tangy spicy sauce!!!!

happy things:
1. i get to see my bestie on friday! it's not nearly enough time for a visit but i can't wait to hear that laugh of hers dancing across this stagnant tallavegas air!
2. the bens may be coming to visit as well! yay for possible conductor ben and benji happy happy time time!!! that spells out laughter, good beer, and great company!
3. pumpkin pie. my kryptonite. my happy place. my delicious holiday companion. i usually eat about three of these per thanksgiving. there is one with my name on it at my mom's house waiting to be picked up this afternoon. oh yeah.
4. mississippi. he constantly reminds me that we will be fine and that i don't need to worry. the best part is, is that i let myself believe him instead of letting my worries get the best of me. he's a good one, this man o' mine. my partner in crime (which could be his literal title if i can't get this budget under control, we may have to dick & jane our way out...just kiddin'...).

i'm an optimist. the challenges are gigantic and the happy things are nice little bumpers and flippers to keep the challenges moving, changing, and eventually pinballed right outta here. i can't say i'm not overwhelmed though. i think i'm going to take it one hour at a time. break it down, baby! more to come! i hope your mondays are calm, and easy and beautiful!!!

keep the meatballs, ditch the ramen.

good morning, friends! 'tis friday, thank goodness, and i have learned something this week. i don't care for ramen enough to make recipes with it all week. sorry. i also learned that i make wicked good meatballs. which is what i made with sauce and ramen for a "spaghetti and meatballs" effect. it went well. ramen, however, does not keep well. ick.
also, meatballs get even better if you let them swim in homemade-ish sauce for a night. anyway, this meal cost me $4.17 and i'm not going to go into any details about how i made the sauce other than it involved garlic, onions, a beefsteak tomato, tomato soup, tomato paste, spaghetti sauce, cayenne pepper, and a lot of salt and pepper. as you can see, i'm a little out of it today. a little spacey, and quite a bit overwhelmed with my epic to-do list. sooo, here is the photographic evidence of a successful meatball attempt and perhaps the last time i eat ramen ever. heh. happy weekend friends!!!

adieu for now!

new week challenge!

hello friends! 'tis wednesday and i'm still trying to warm up from my early morning walk. it was quite windy and chilly. now that i've downed a hot cup of earl grey, my fingers are actually nimble enough to type.well, this week's recipe challenges are along the lines of the ever-so-common budget favourite: ramen. monday night was mississippi'sofficial birthday so we didn't have a recipe challenge for that night; but last night mississippi and i made a spicy chicken and mushroom creamy noodley concoction that was quite delicious and it smells SO GOOD while it's cooking.

chicken: three cutlests (from the package i bought last week) equalling $2.24
shiitake mushrooms: $2.50 (used half the package)
oriental ramen: $1/6 packages (used three packages for this recipe): $0.50
chicken broth: the remainder of the package i bought last week which i think i
paid $3.59 for. but the same amount of chicken broth is about $0.99
green onions: still using up the bundle i bought last week. good grief these things last a while! not bad for i believe it was $.075
mushroom gravy mix: $0.89 (used half)
cayenne pepper: had in stock, but it costs about $2.29
soy sauce: used a packet left over from chinese take out (ahem...again. i know i have a problem).

total this recipe would cost about $10.16, but as i have mentioned in all the previous recipe posts, you probably have most of this at home. i spent a total of $3.00 even to make this meal last night. not bad!! try it, it is quite tasty.

steps 1 & 2: sautee the mushrooms with the green onions and seasonings with a little bit of broth as you sautee the chicken with cayenne and salt and pepper in some oil in a separate pan.

steps 3 & 4: then add the noodles and the rest of the broth and add the chicken too the mixture that's already simmering in the pot. ta da! you are done. and it's quite spicy and delicious! plus it makes enough to serve at least four.

here he comes to save the daaaaay! mississippi just sent me the brunch picture to help perfect the teeny weeny birthday brunch post! thanks sweets!


little sidenote

also, i happend to have made a delicious scrounge brunch on sunday using only what was on hand from the week except for two pork chops i bought for $4.47 (only used two for atotal of $2.24) and a basket of strawberries that were irresistible (albeit out of season) for $4.99. so, this non-photo-documented but extremely delicious brunch cost $9.46 (or more accurately: $7.23)

i fried two pork loin chops in olive oil five minutes on each side. sprinkled them with salt and pepper and rosemary. once those were cooked all the way, i utilized the pork fat (because i'm a good southern girl) and made scrambled eggs, tossing in green onions and cheddar cheese until they were juuuust cooked (i.e. not runny and not hard and lumpy- yuck!). then i simmered a bit of jellied cranberry sauce in a sauce pot with a little bit of water until it melted. i spooned that over the pork chops and sprinkled some sugar over the strawberries. voila! delicious, savory brunchimans!!!

dessert recipe receipt breakdown

apples: $2.79 for three
parchment paper: $2.79
all purpose flour: $1.29
apricot preserves: $2.49
lemon: $0.75
pears: $1.44 for three
cinnamon: $1.69
pie crust: $1.67 (for two)

most of these things you probably already have (flour, parchment paper, cinnamon) but i sure didn't! so all in all the recipe cost me: $14.91 (i miscalculated yesterday and said it was $14.82, my bad!). totally reasonable considering it would be almost $30 at my local bakery for something like that.
adieu for now friends!

little miss galettey mcfancybritches

good morning, campers! 'tis tuesday (already?! where does the time go?) and it's a fantastically stormy day here in tallanasty. the air is a weird pink colour almost as if a hurricane was on its way (though, when that happens the air is a weird green colour; but i'm pretending a little today). stormy days are always my favourite. don't get me wrong, a sunny day is great. but nothing but sunny days all the time is the epitome of boring in my book. i would be miserable in southern california. all that bloody sunshine and cloudless skies?! ick. grody. give me a good stormy breeze, and a nice old fashioned thunderstorm. mississippi is the same way (except he loves san fran). methinks we have a future on the new england coast, or seattle, or london. mehopes anyway.well, i'm here to post my galette recipe challenge. it was delicious! well, it still is. it made a huge dessert (especially for just two people who don't eat much dessert) to tackle. regardless, it was incredibly delicious. tart and cinnamony with a buttery flakey crust. wowza. i would love to make it with berries for the holidays. yum!
okay so here's how it all went down (and excuse that there are not any "prep" pictures; my cameraman was unavailable for the prep time photography).

steps 1 & 2: get two 9" refrigerated pie crusts (from the biscuit section of the grocery store) and stack them on top of one another on a floured surface. roll them out until it makes about a 16" circle. then move it to parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread apricot preserves in the center of the circle leaving a good 2.5" border. the recipe called for 2" border but it did not seem like enough upon execution.
steps 3 & 4 & 5: cut up three apples (i chose jazz apples because they are tart and i really don't like super sweet apples), and three pears (i chose green bartletts, but i think the red ones would be delicious too). then splash lemon juice across the fruit and sprinkle in several pinches of all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. i get a little heavy-handed with cinnamon because it smells sooooo amazing. mix it all up and plop it on top of the apricot preserves. then pull the 2.5" border around the fruit, making kind of a bread bowl, if you will. leaving the inside open, then brush one egg around the pastry so it gets all brown and crispy when it cooks.
steps 6 & 7: sprinkle a little bit of sugar on top then bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 55 minutes. while that is baking, put several big spoonfuls of apricot preserves in a sauce pot with a little bit of water and several spoonfuls of sugar. note: i don't like to be all measurey, sorry. let that simmer down into a glaze of sorts. after the galette bakes, pull it out of the oven and brush on the apricot mixture. let everything cool then ta da!! dive in! i highly recommend using a pizza cutter to divvy it up. it's just easier. try it, it honestly is so easy and looks so nice when it's done (that it seems waaaay more gourmet fancy pants than it really is!). try it for the holidays, it is super delicious and quite impressive.
later lovies!

Monday, November 15, 2010


p.s. i made an amazing apple & pear galette for mississippi's birthday and my fifth recipe of the week. i chose (since it was a special occasion) that i would make it for $15 or under (which i did for $14.82). however, the pictures aren't in my possession as of right now. stay tuned! it's a recipe that is so easy and looks so fancy when it's done. and it's yummy for sure!
okay, later!

also, happy official birthday to my sweetie! love you bunches!!

little receipt breakdown

chicken cutlets: 6 for $4.87. i only used three though so it averaged to $2.09.
chicken broth: big honkin' box of swanson chicken broth (which is my favourite): $3.59 (i used about 3/4 of it).
tortellini: i already had this package on hand that i got last week 2/$5. sooo, $2.50.
green onions: the same bundle i've had since last week. i think i spent $.79 or so on it. i can't really remember but i'm almost positive that's how much it was.
shiitake mushrooms: i had these on hand as well, but they were purchased last week for $2.99 a package.
ginger: the same container i've had all week that i had originally spent $1.99 on. i have a feeling this container is going to last me through the holiday season.
carrots: also had these on hand, usually a bag of these carrots goes for about $1.99 or so. so, i used about $.89 worth.
romaine: used about 1/3 of the bundle i bought last week for $1.99. i used about $.80 worth.

so if you had to purchase everything it would have cost: $17.93, however this lucky broad spent a total of $8.49. this one was the biggest hit of all the recipes i tested this week. try it out. it's got a great little bite and is complimented nicely by cold IPA.
more to come!

thursday night recipe recap

happy monday friends! things are good at the nest. we had a long weekend of celebrating mississippi's birthday; therefore i am a little behind in posting my culinary experiments. thursday night's dinner was a major major success. it originated from real simple (which has been the trend last week), but i tweaked it to give it some kick. as per usual i added a ton of ginger and several dashes of cayenne. so i made chicken tortellini soup and here's how it went:

steps 1 & 2: sliced green onions and shiitake mushrooms in 6 cups of chicken broth. i added salt & pepper and grated ginger and cayenne.
steps 3 & 4: i cut up three chicken cutlets into cutes and boiled them in salted water for a few minutes and also cut up five small organic (and peeled) carrots and boiled them in water with more grated ginger.

steps 5 & 6: i added packaged cheese tortellini and tore the leaves off of some of the remaining stalks (heads?) of romaine. let it all bubble and swirl around together and prepare to be dazzled!

financial breakdown to come!
adieu for now, friends!

financial breakdown of the aforementioned recipe

okay so as i have mentioned before, i have been trying to use a lot of what i already have on hand to make these recipes. however, i really wanted to make that sandwich last night from wheat mini baguette-y things i saw at the shop. but i was a good girl and saved money and made it with the bread i had gotten on sale last week. this all sounds so terribly boring when i write it but whatevs.

bread: had on hand, but was purchased for $3 last week.
turkey cutlets: now, i purchased a package of 8 cutlets and used four. the other four are going to be used at a later date. so i used $2.90 worth of turkey last night.
romaine: $1.99 for a big bushel that i am going to have to finish tonight and tomorrow night somehow. i would have preferred to steal the leaves i needed but...i was being a good girl.
tomato: $1.25 does that seem expensive for ONE tomato to anyone else? it was surprisingly yummy though.
mayonnaise: now, i had some in stock, but as with the soy sauce from last night, don't be afraid to save those silly little packets you get from sandwich shops etc. anyway, a bottle ends up being about $1.99.
goat cheese: pretty much one of my favourite things in the world. i eat it every single day and have no qualms about splurging on this when i can. however, the most reasonably priced goat cheese i can find is $3.99 a package; which is what i have been buying lately.
cranberry sauce: i got the jellied kind only to find out mississippi likes the kind with the actual berries in it. oh well, it worked great on the sammich. $0.89
bacon: i had this on hand as well, but a package of the only kind of reasonably priced turkey bacon in stock at my grocery store is $2.99. regular bacon is cool too as most bacon-lovers already know.

so if you had none of these items on hand and had to buy everything (which i find unlikely because most of these items everyone i know has at their disposal already)...but if you had to buy them all your total would be: $19, however i got out of the store spending only $9.03 ($6.14 if you divide up the turkey cutlets, which i'm choosing to do since it will definitely be used next week).

alright alright, have a great thursday friends!

wednesday night recipe

well, last night's recipe was kind of made-up. i couldn't find one that utilized all of the things i wanted so i combined two ideas. it's nothing new and has been done a million times before but this is what i did: i made a thanksgiving leftover/b.l.t. sandwich and let me tell you it was good!
someone needs a haircut.

steps 1 & 2 & 3: i mixed mayonnaise and room temperature goat cheese together to make the spread. might i suggest using an actual mixer because doing it by hand has somewhat lackluster results, aesthetically speaking. also roast three turkey cutlets (i think that's what their called). how observant you are readers! there are indeed four cutlets in the roasting pan. that's because i made four and promptly realized upon assembling the sandwiches ,that that was too many. then start slow-cooking the bacon. i like to take at least 10-15 minutes for bacon to ensure it is super crispy. sorry there is no photo of the delicious crispy bacon.
steps 4 & 5: butter the bottom toast pieces and set them on the griddle to get all crispy and delicious. then start loading them up with goat cheese mayonnaise, tomato (i used beefsteak because it was the cheapest of the good looking out of season tomatoes at the store), and lettuce (i used romaine and made a salad with the rest of the leaves), and finally the cranberry sauce.
whose label was on upside down. silly jellied cranberry sauce. then put the "lid" of the sandwich on, so to speak and toast it on the other side. everything gets all melty and crispy and salty and sweet. it's just fantastic.
the final product with makeshift salad. don't judge that part please. i needed a salad. and ta da! delicious thanksgivingy b.l.t.'s!! i hope you try that one, it's a good staying in on a cold night and watching movies kind of treat. p.s. it's also paired nicely with red stripe. just sayin'. cheers! financial breakdown is on its way, stay tuned!

what's up

good morning troopers! 'tis thursday? yes it's thursday. my this week has gone by rather fast! i'm sitting here at the nest catching up with friends via their insightful and hilarious blogs. i feel that often mine is neither but at least i have a recipe challenge to use as a crutch this week, eh?
but before i get to that, the agenda: this weekend is mr. mississippi's uber-awesome birthday celebration weekend. it starts tonight at our favourite wine bar and culminates with a trip out of town for a big honkin' oyster dinner on saturday and a chill sunday at home. of course, his birthday isn't until monday, so i should probably figure out something for monday, huh?
well, i reckon i better get to the big recipe post soon because i have to go for a walk around lake ella for some exercise. seriously. little lady needs some cardio.
adieu for now, kiddies! i hope your thursdays are incredibly cool. oh! and happy veterens day. despite party differences, political differences, and strong opinions on war, i want to say thank you for risking your life for us dan, rip, aaron, tony, richard, gunar and the millions of other men and women who serve and have served our country.

a new recipe, a new challenge

good morning, kiddos! happy wednesday! i started a new project this week in which i cook a new recipe every night. it makes me feel like less of a putz that i don't have a jobby job yet. well, i added a challenge to this project, considering the money is rather tight in the ortolano household. so, my challenge is to make a recipe i find online (or in one of the cookbooks from my obscenely large cookbook collection) for ten dollars or less. i'm also trying to use up as many ingredients from my own pantry as possible. so, here was what i made yesterday (once again from realsimple.com):
ginger chicken meatballs with edamame on rice

steps 1 & 2: mix shallots and grated ginger in with ground chicken with salt and pepper, then form meatballs. cook meatballs in olive oil until cooked all the way through. it takes a little while.
steps 3 & 4: cook rice in a separate pot while you sautee edamame (and snow peas, says the recipe, but i forgot about them completely and you know what? they weren't missed). i sauteed the beans in a little bit of chicken broth and soy sauce, and sprinkled brown sugar on them as they browned a little.
then you are done! ta da! gingery chicken meatballs and edamame on top of rice with brown sugar-sweetened soy sauce. delicious!

this got a high rating from mississippi. i concur entirely (though the soy sauce and brown sugar make it a little rich) because the ginger in the meatball has a fantastic bite. really fresh and yummy. try it out. it's really quite easy and filling.

as for the financial total:
soy sauce: i used remaining packets i had saved from a few chinese takeout nights over the past few weeks and bought an extra small bottle just in case that wasn't enough. but if you don't have any of those left over (though i think there are some in every american silverware drawer i've ever seen), then it costs around $1.39.
ground chicken: $3.29 (thankfully, because it was the least expensive option in my grocery store's poultry aisle).
green onions: $0.40 (for one bunch and there is quite a bit left over).
ginger root: for a small container of ginger root to be used in several more recipes to come! $1.99
brown sugar: i already had some in stock but if you don't, it ranges around $1.49
instant rice: i like to use brown but they cost pretty much the same. the brown added a nice nuttiness that i think added to the recipe more than plain white rice would have. $1.49

so if you have to buy everything it ends up being $10.05; but if you happen to have some of this on hand, then even better. i got out of the store for around $7.07! try it out friends!
adieu for now,

adieu for now, lovelies!

testing recipe!

so i tested a new recipe from realsimple.com, and it teased me with its potential deliciousness the entire hour i was planning to concoct and create this. it was hearty and tasty, however a little bland; and given a few tweaks to the recipe (which i will test again at a later date) it could be unbelievable. anyway, i consider it a successful first go-round. here is the cheese ravioli and chicken sausage marinara cassoroley thing.

steps 1&2: cheese ravioli boiled and drained, chicken sausage sauteed in olive oil. (i added garlic and a ton of salt and pepper).

steps 3 & 4: toss the ravioli and sausage in marinara sauce and add grated mozzarella. bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

ta da! add a lot of seasonings and maybe cook the sausage in the marinara sauce (for a good long while) to give it more flavour. also, maybe add enough thick sauce to make it like a lasagna. then perhaps we will achieve culinary perfection!

exclamatory closet organizing

good morning world! 'tis monday and i'm in project mode. i spent two hours organizing my closet and, obsessively categorizing clothing by item, colour, and sleeve length and throwing away all bath and body products that were expired, old, and mysterious etc. yes i had bath products in my closet, don't ask.
needless to say, my closet looks remarkable and i came to a frustrating conclusion. i have 17 pairs of shoes and only about 5 i really like and wear often. i wish there was a program that would accept all the shoes that you don't want anymore and give you a zappos.com credit for what you trade in. then i could get the clogs i have been dreaming of and the frye boots that haunt my waking hours.
now i have to figure out what to organize next... hmmm... perhaps my thoughts?
more to come, friends! have a wonderful monday!!
adieu for now,

Saturday, November 6, 2010


because i have always liked this song and come to find out, so does mississippi. though i'm not sure he would want me to broadcast that on the interwebs. heh. happy saturday lovelies!!

fishing with john

because i love willem dafoe, and because he is so terribly affable and sweet. at least in this mockumentary with john lurie.

happy friday lovebuckets!

sleepytime honeybunch

yawn! good morning fellas and dames, 'tis friday and i am so very excited about the weekend. it's been a surprisingly busy week considering...
mississippi and i are planning to hit up first friday (the first chilly one of the season), we have a lot of work on the etsy shop to do and a heck of a lot of organizing left to do at the nest.
i should probably get some of that done right now, but i'm terribly tired today. my dreams have been insanely active and strange over the past two weeks or so. so much so that i wake up more exhausted than i was went i went to bed in the first place.
it's been a while since my mind has been that active at night. back in the day it was always like that. lately though, the whackadoodle dreaming seems less cohesive. i can't readily translate what those dreams mean (when in the past i could with relative ease). hmm, wonder what that's about. oh well, i promise there is more to come and that those subsequent posts will make some sort of sense or at least me a teeny weeny bit more interesting.
that's it for now, lovies.

like a bad habit, pete

i'm daydreamin' about shopping (again). freepeople.com wooed me once more with the promise that i'll look stylishly boho/gypsy and that my hair would look half as good as the models' hair do.
genetic skinny cord $198
levi's LVC flares $235
boho angel blanket $148
technicolor dreamcoat $268
ever oversized cardigan $298

of course, these items equal more than i take home from unemployment right now, so i'll just nip this dangerous behaviour in the bud for the time being. hope you enjoy it though!

happy happy blog blog

good morning lovelies! 'tis wednesday. today i am researching new cities to live. we have a few criteria for the big move and a few of our ideas have changed since we first decided NYC NYC! several months ago. they haven't changed drastically, just a tidbit more realistically for us. it's exciting to plan and think ahead a little. once an idea has manifested then the steps to fulfill begin to manifest and all of that is terribly titillating!
money is tight but i'm also planning mississippi's birthday weekend. i'm tickled to do something special for him and have spent nearly two hours googling one thing after another. thank goodness i'm relatively adept at budget traveling because that's our only option!
things are going well today, no dips, just a great mood and the thrill of getting organized. that sounds so boring, i'm sure but it really isn't!
the weather is crisp, i've got bon iver on my pandora, the pup is happy and asleep, lunch is cooking, and am looking forward to picking up mississip this afternoon. yay!
more to come, friends!
adieu for now,


because i'm ridiculous.

because i have a soft spot for don knotts.

because mississippi impersonates this scene often and it ALWAYS tickles me.
