I noticed my friend Laura snacking on raw sugar snap peas the other day. I pinched one from her and liked it. I would have never thought to eat them as a snack - I'm more of a cookie person as much as I like the idea of being a raw vegetable snacker. This week I bought some organic sugar snap peas from Trader Joe's and have been happily eating them. I put a handful in a stoneware bowl I made with a shino glaze. If Ina Garten came over to my house I would have a bowl like this sitting on a counter and offer her some.
I had such a funny dream last night. I dreamt that Ina Garten was my neighbor. She came by with a shopping cart full of perfumes and said that I should keep them because she "never uses them". There were three enormous display bottles of Annick Goutal perfumes, like the kind you would see in a department store. I recognized two of them but not the third - I was excited by the prospect of sniffing the discontinued scent. I also found an old Diptyque room spray in a bottle that looked very 1980s, not at all like the modern bottle. I thought to myself, "she really doesn't use this stuff."
I found a roll of tape in the shopping cart. It had printed instructions on the back of the box. It was a scented tape made by Prada that was meant to be wrapped around your suitcase when you travel. There was an illustration of a suitcase (maybe Prada) wrapped in the the designer perfumed tape, in a criss-cross pattern.
