Show Me Your “Ugly”

November 2, 2014

Less than a month until Thanksgiving and Christmas right on its heels. Still, you have no idea how to handle your ugliest interior design dilemma before the crush of holiday revelers start popping in. Well, help is here. Take a quick snap of an area in your home or garden that could benefit from a new set of eyes and send* it to me. I’ll select one  submission at random, come up with a plan and post the simplequietmodern resolution. There’s no time like now…I spotted my first installation of Holiday lights only yesterday.

Keeps the pics to a few… add any detail that might help… and get them to me by midnight November 8, 2014 at gpettyint@comcast.net  with SQM in the subject line. Your place looks great but your holiday cooking or entertaining skills have you in a knot? I’ll take that submission as well. Let’s get started.

 

really simple, really impressive. A basic Choux pastry flavored with cheese, Gougere is the savory version of a cream puff. Traditionally served with Champagne or a glass of wine, these two bite wonders are perfect for holiday entertaining.  Make ’em now…freeze ’em…pull ’em out and reheat when you need ’em…anytime someone stops by or pops a cork.
