Come On Skinny Love Just Last the Year

>> Thursday, April 8, 2010

A prize goes to the person that can name that song. It has been stuck in my head ever since our road trip to the Cape.

My skinny love is THIS. About three months ago Real Simple started mysteriously appearing in my mailbox. And unlike the US Weekly that I "borrow" from my neighbor before she gets home, these have actually had my name on them. I don't know where they came from but they have revolutionized the Sabbe household.  I love all the tips, they inspire me to be a better wife. But what I am REALLY loving are the recipes. They are...real simple. There are only a handful of ingredients and most of them are less than 25 minutes start to finish. Here are some of our favorites from the past couple of weeks.
First up, the easiest recipe ever.

And second, the fennel slaw on this burger was to die for and sweet potato fries are my fave.
And last, I had never tried Israeli couscous. It was delicious, a little heartier than traditional couscous. And dried apricots are pretty much my favorite dried fruit ever.

Mr. Sabbe has promised me that if the Real Simple Fairy quits visiting our house, he will make sure Real Simple continues to show up in our mailbox.

Not kidding about the song. Do you know? I am so obsessed with it.

I love this magazine! One day it just started showing up in my mailbox Real Simple giver was my own husband. He kept seeing me buy them on the stand & had no objection to purchasing them for me. I was & still am...thrilled!

REAL SIMPLE is lovely! And I was cracking up at the USWeekly confession! My SIL (neighbor)subscribes then gives to me. I've secretly taken the REALLY good ones...I swear I don't even make a crease!

You Are My Fave April 8, 2010 at 11:29 PM  

I love when awesome things mysteriously show up in my mailbox. Real Simple is one of my faves. And the lady I babysit for always saves her People and other celeb trash for me. I secretly love it.

You have good style and equally good taste in music. Bon Iver is great. Skinny is a wonderful and sad song. It's on For Emma, Forever Ago

So funny that the magazine is just turning up out of the blue! The same thing happened to my mum years ago - she had a 6 month subscription, and never did find out who ordered it for her! I love the look of these recipes - it's often the simplest things that are the tastiest.

Thanks for letting me know about Freshly Picked :D

Ooooh so I fell in love with Real Simple about 2 years ago from my sister and think my fav and easiest so far was the one in December this past Christmass with the COOKIES! Oh so good and "SIMPLE"!

Real Simple may be my favorite all around magazine. I received a gift subscription 6 years ago and I can't tell you how many recipes I've torn out and use time and time again. I also love the paper they use for the magazine - it's somehow thicker, and makes for a much better reading experience.

I hope you have a great weekend!

YUM. I think I need to pick up the latest issue.

I've got an apron giveaway on my blog right now, if you need something cute while you're doing all this fab cooking!

Happy weekend!

Skinny Love by Bon Iver!

When we were dirt poor, both students, newborn baby, living in the bottom of someone's house...I still paid my subscription to Real Simple. Love it because I am such an organizer and it fits right up my ally! Enjoy it in all its glory.

Gouda cheeseburgers??? YUM! I get Real Simple and devour every issue!
