Three completely unrelated things from this weekend that I’d like to share with you.
1. The Dallas Cowboys played the Philadelphia Eagles and the testosterone-laden members of my family were glued to the TV. While on some mission to clean up or put something away, I passed through the room. I glanced at the TV and couldn’t take my eyes off of the Cowboys’ uniforms.
Their pants are the most beautiful shiny, shimmery, aquamarine/sea-foam green color fabric that I have ever seen. They glisten the color of mermaid tears. This fabric would make a gorgeous gown!
Having no idea what was happening in the game and also not caring (sorry, football fans), I was in awe seeing that beautiful color on the football field, and simply commented, “Wow! The Cowboys really have pretty outfits!” And then I left the room.
2. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to post this, but if you take your old Christmas lights to Home Depot to recycle before November 14, they will give you up to $5 off the purchase of a new string of lights.
This picture was taken on October 10 at Home Depot, before Hallowe’en! If you are in the market for 20′ tall, inflatable decorations, Home Depot has them, too.
3. We are well into apple season in the northeast. I made applesauce this weekend and will be making more to freeze this week and that will be another post. It is incredibly easy to make. Only one ingredient – apples!
Because it is so sweet, the French eat applesauce or apple compote as a dessert. I attempted to convince my kids that applesauce was dessert last night. They said that applesauce for dessert was fine, as long as it was served over a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
“They glisten the color of mermaid tears.” Probably the nicest, and certainly the most poetic, thing that’s been said about the Cowboys this season. For the first time, our players may be prettier than our cheerleaders.
Absolutely love that! “…players may be prettier than our cheerleaders.” It is such a feminine color. It would only be “worse” if it were pink or lavender. I have very little interest in the game (sorry) but that color on the football field literally stopped me in my tracks. Thanks for stopping by! Merci! ~FTW
Happy Tuesday to you – I love those uniforms (strips we call them in Europe) – but I’m a Seahawk fan and they have the best strips in my eyes.
Christmas light – Sweden are filled with them from the first Sunday of Advent – but 98% is clear. Hate colored lights .. terrible cheap. We have a welcome light in every window of our homes, shops, banks, hotel, hospitals … everywhere they are. – I love the winter because of all the lights we have.
And a good apple sauce … can save a lot. Love it with ice cold milk. *smile
What color are the Seahawks so I will remember to look for them. Yes, I like the white, twinkling lights, too. They look so pretty all year ’round. Thanks for visiting! Merci! ~FTW
They are blue … send you a link here … http://seahawknationblog.com/files/2010/09/seahawks-offensive-line.jpg
I will check them out. Merci!
Oh…they are wearing a very beautiful and effeminate color–I like it! And I would love to know how you make your applesauce. I love “easy peasy, lemon squeezy” recipes. (We just heard that line in a movie and now my husband and I are saying it all the time—well, not all the time because not everything is easy but you get my meaning). : )
That’s so ironic because the title of my yet-to-be-published post is “Easy Peasy Applesauce”! Great minds think alike. Thanks again for stopping by. I am loving VintageFrenchChic! ~FTW
Too hilarious! Et merci.
