The cover story this week is all about Carole Lombard: "A Loud Cheer for the Screwball Girl." If you're as big a fan as I am, you'll want to read this article!
Secondly, I love that there's an article about tweed, because I just watched the documentary suggested by Karen at Small Earth Vintage about the current ails of the Harris Tweed industry. There's a link to watch the video at her post.
Finally, what better to go with tweed than a bit of porridge ("oatmeal" to us Americans)? I call this version "Golden Porridge" because it's got golden syrup and golden raisins!
1 serving oatmeal
2 tablespoons golden raisins
1 tablespoon golden syrup
pinch mixed spice
This isn't much of a recipe, because all you do is top the oatmeal with the other ingredients and enjoy!
Not only is this a nod to the chilly weather we're having today (especially odd-feeling since it was 85 in Dallas!) but also to the sweet Scots couple we met on the elevator Saturday morning who guided us through the complementary breakfast. The husband was getting oatmeal, so I figured it would be a safe bet! ;-)
Speaking of Dallas, the photos for our first day there are up on flickr, but I've reached my storage limit, so I have to decide what to do now! Is the "Pro" version worth the $25 per year?
