Saturday Morning Links

Tivo, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love that you provide Miss A with her daily Dora fix and I don’t have to nag you about it and I love that the hubby has a new post-dinner tradition of watching Price is Right reruns with the girls because there is nothing quite as comical as seeing a 5 and 2-year-old jumping up and down when someone wins a new Mustang or a stove or perhaps a trip to Spain. It’s also hilarious to hear your 5-year-old chanting “BOB BARKER, BOB BARKER, BOB BARKER!” Any way this is my rambling way to ask if you knew you can now rent movies through Amazon straight to your Tivo? It’s called Amazon Unbox. We haven’t tried it, but the prices ($3.99 for new releases) are comparable to the big name video stores. Let me know if you’ve tried it.

Harris Teeter is the fancy schmancy grocery in Nashville, but they do have great sales on meat and seafood. Did you know they offer express pick-up shopping? I didn’t until a friend and co-worker told me. For $4.95 you shop online and then schedule a pick-up time (they need 4 hours’ notice.) I just happened to see that they are waiving the $4.95 fee through August 7 so now would be a great time to test it out. I love the Harris Teeter brand pear gorgonzola with roasted pecans and cranberries salad kit. It’s nice as a side to grilled pork tenderloin. Yes, I actually grilled a pork tenderloin this week. Be still my heart!

Speaking of blogging moms, I met two lovely Nashville bloggin’ moms this week for lunch at Mere Bulles in Brentwood: Linda and Malia. I am definitely ordering the she-crab bisque next time.

Have a great weekend. I’m hoping we can hit the pool today. My Florida tan is fading, dammit!

    Have you looked into monthly DVD rental clubs? We do one for 20 bucks a month. We can take out as many as we want through the month, but only three out at a time. The online feature is awesome, it has pre-paid envelopes, you can go online and tell them when you’ve dropped something in the mail, and they’ll send out another one you have in your list of rentals. Its pretty awesome. Totally worth it for us considering it usually costs us 20 bucks to rent three from the store.

    The salad is very yummy (and I finally added a link to the HT online shopping….d’oh) and you could easily recreate it although their dressing is really delicious!

    1. The Harris Teeter thing is SO COOL! That would be worth the drive to Brentwood for me, to be able to avoid shopping with the kids.

    2. I love all things bisque, Mere Bulles, here I come! 😉
