Cooking today. Really really. Aren't you so proud of me?
Enough of that, I have floors! We splurged on this, I admit. We got the really nice laminate floors that can withstand a nuclear bomb so I assume they can take the clackity treading of corgi nails. It's called Cotton Valley Oak and it is stunning to look at. You would never know they're laminate and not actual hard wood. We went with the spongier pads, too, so the floor doesn't have the telltale hollow echo laminate can sometimes have. We are installing it ourselves, which is a pain in the butt but saves us about $700.
On the plus side for me it means husband is always working in just a pair of shorts. So, yay there.
It's beautiful and I am so happy not to be walking on busted up and dusty concrete. Huzzah.
But you're probably here because I promised cooking.
Blueberry Gorgonzola Tartines
You will need bread, Gorgonzola or some other great blue cheese, blueberries, and some basil. Slice some cheese onto some slices of bread. Toast in a toaster oven (or regular oven at 350F if you want to get fancy) until golden brown and melty. Add blueberries and basil on top. Hit it with olive oil if you have any.
Eat and make those really fun "Mmmm" sounds because you're gonna flip your lid for this. Blueberries, blue cheese, and basil - the Three Bs. Seriously, it doesn't get any easier.
