Design Sponge at Home

Christmas has come a little early this year- mainly because I treated myself to some books, one being Grace Bonney's Design Sponge at Home. I am super excited about this book! I have yet to become a home owner, however once I do I can't wait to design the hell out of my place! I would like to think Design Sponge at Home will be a tool, reference and lovely piece of print work that I will keep with me well into old age. I want to fill 2012 with plenty of DIY projects and I think Design Sponge at Home is a great place to start.

Pulled Chicken + Coleslaw on a Biscuit

Happy (belated) December! The holiday season is upon us, and that means one thing- EATS! This sandwich was extremely satisfying and a complete cheat! We had left over grocery store rotisserie chicken in the fridge, which I pulled off the bone and shredded. I added BBQ sauce and mixed in some pepper sauce and brown mustard. There was also some packaged coleslaw mix kicking around in one of the veggie drawers, we didn't have dressing so I mixed mayo, greek yogurt, evaporated milk, onion/garlic powder and a little celery seed for good measure. I made the biscuits (took about 20 mins) which together resulted in a yummy slider-style sandwich that tastes like summer but really hits the spot for the cold months ahead. If home made biscuits are too cumbersome for you, buy some rolls (also tried on kaiser- equally as delicious).
