Guess What?





I'm the featured blogger at "The Secret is in the Sauce.! Now if only I had something funny to write about this morning. But I don't because most of the weekend was spent lazing around on the sofa watching the Olympics, eating these:



Don't they look like calf nuts that the Pioneer Woman would make? They are actually figs stuffed with goat cheese, pecans and then wrapped in bacon. I'm sure a calf nut never tasted this good.

We did make it out to a few garage sales Saturday morning. These are my favorite finds: A never used, set of 6 napkins, a cast iron Eiffel Tower, and a necklace. All for $8. I've become so jaded from shopping at yard sales, that last week when Brewier and I were at Big Lots....Big Lots people, that I didn't buy anything because it was all to pricey :)

Garage sales are so much fun, especially when you find cool deals on unique items.

Your dish wrapped figs look delish, and I agree, totally look like Pioneer Woman's calf nuts. eww.

Congrats on your SITS day!

Congrats on being featured today. I can see why. Your blog is beautiful. I've never had calf nuts or stuffed figs but I'll tell ya. I'll take the figs any day. As for the yard sale, gorgeous finds. I wouldn't have guessed in a million years that's where you found these little treasures. Can I come with you next time?

Congrats on being the SITS girl of the day!

Untypically Jia said...

They don't look like calf nuts to me, more like a new spin on her bacon wrapped jalepeno things! Either way, they look fabulous!

I feel the same way about prices. I passed up shirts for my kids this weekend on the clearance racks- they weren't under $5 so, I passed them up- what a tight wad I am!

Kelly said...

Tricia,

What a great blog you have! I just found you through SITS and am so glad that I did! I'll be back for another visit definitely...and wah, this post made my hungry! :o)

Kris said...

Here from SITS and you took the words right out of my mouth. Garage sales are making me a terrible retail shopper. I'm getting sad that the season is almost over here! Congrats on being featured!

mrsmouthy said...

I NEED that recipe. Can you post it pls??

Ann said...

I am so caught up in the Olympics!
And I'm surprised. I'm not usually this interested but it just seems, oh I don't know, it's just so good.

Congratulations on your SITS day!!!

Michelle said...

Congratulations on being Queen for the Day! Cute blog! See ya soon.

Kally said...

Sorry that I'm a day late and a dollar short in spreading the SITSta love your way. A sinus infection forced me into solitude and I missed you yesterday! But congrats on your featured day yesterday! I love the garage sale finds.

Heather said...

I'm cracking up about the Big Lots thing because I'm like that with my kids' clothes. If it's more than fifty cents, then it's just too much.

Hillary said...

Congratulations on being the SITS girl. I'm a weeeeee bit late, so I'm sorry.

Very cool Eiffel Tower!
