Just a Little Window Shopping

This past weekend my sweet husband surprised me with an impromtu date night at PF Chang's. Yeah, he's pretty awesome! The restaurant is actually located in a town about an hour from where we live, so we had some great drive-time talk. I love that! Even after 12+ years we still have tons to talk about:)
After our very yummy dinner, I tricked him into letting me do a little window shopping (only I actually went inside the stores..heehee). I only checked out two faves: PotteryBarn and Williams-Sonoma--they were just too tempting. In my defense though all I bought was a tube of tomato paste. I've been wanting a tube of that for-e-ver. And now I have one. :)
I did see some great stuff though and thought I'd share some of my *finds* with you. Just a little fall inspiration for you...

What do you do with a tube of tomato paste?

Lora said...

Well, occasionally there is a recipe that calls for, say, a Tbls. of tomato paste or some other small measurement--smaller than a whole little can. The tube is great because you can just squeeze out just the amount you need and just keep it in the fridge for a long time. No little bits of leftover past in random little bowls that gets forgotten about:)
Yeah, not a true necessity, but whenever I run across a recipe like that I always wish I had one:)
