Thanks for nothing Giada!....I got the recipe from Giada De Laurentiis (you know, of Food Network fame). While she was cooking it (in her awesome kitchen with her high class/quality cooking gear) it looked/sounded absolutely delicious. While I cooked it (in my teeny tiny kitchen with my "much loved" (aka: getting old and battered) cooking gear) it looked kind of sick.
Turns out the "tea" (in quotes because it is like Long Island Iced Tea...full-o-booze) is seriously sweet with a funky after taste. Not my cup of tea.
I think this is genius. If you have never seen it or don't know what it is....it's a shopping cart cover. There is nothing that disgusts me more than to look over at the grocery store and see a little kid sucking on the grocery cart. UGH! It makes my skin crawl...those carts are Dirty (with a CAPITAL "D")!!!! Thank God it came out before I pop out a kid. If I didn't have access to something like this, my child would most certainly be bundled up in a bio-hazard suit for each trip to the store.
When I went shopping last night for my cousin's baby shower, I was happy to see she had registered for one of these . I purchased it. I can sleep soundly knowing I helped contribute to Baby Bella not getting some horrible sickness from a seedy shopping cart.
ps: Stone as a father is going to be hilarious (for many reasons). Last night, while shopping for the baby gift, I wondered over to the clothing section to grab a little outfit too. I spotted a sweet little pants-onesie-sweater outfit. "A cardigan??? She isn't even born yet and you are trying to make her a granny?" Stone said to me. I put that down and picked up a cute little sundress with teeny tiny leggins. "Nice...she'll be a hussy at the ripe old age of 3 months."
Oh Stone, you silly silly man! Looks like our child will be "that kid" who is always in just a diaper. ha!
