I was reading this post about champagne & celebrations today on Orangette, and was in full agreement. I always look for a reason to celebrate. I threw a bottle of pink sparkly in the fridge immediately.
Today, we had a reason to celebrate. One reason was - we were eating the highly sought after fresh shelling cranberry beans. We did have the Shelling Bean, Haricots Verts & Zucchini Salad that I mentioned the other day. (We added fresh corn & did not exercise our option of including anchovies.)
The BIG reason to celebrate is that we have had success with potty training Gillian! We started again this Thursday. Before 8 am on Friday, she was going to the potty chair herself, whenever she needed to go! Hooray! A reason for mom & dad to have champagne!
