Lush Life

To be a lush chef, does not mean to drink in excess - this can result in scary fires and bad dishes. A lush chef is one who enjoys gourmet cooking/baking, often with fresh ingredients and the smart use of one's home bar. If there happens to be half a bottle of beer, a glass of wine, or a sip of brandy left over...well, one cannot be wasteful. I give you permission to imbibe.

Let's Get Drunk and Eat Waffles

Doesn't this picture just make you want to run out to brunch and eat a giant pile of waffles with a mimosa?  When my friend and I first saw this card at Mindfulnest in Santa Monica, I think we laughed for a full 5 minutes. She then had to buy the card so she could frame the thing. Months later, I was still thinking about that silly card and found out the designer was local.  She goes by the moniker "The Frantic Meerkat," and all of her work sells on Etsy.

Most of her magnets, cards, etc are culinary inspired - everything from a rabbit sitting in a giant dirty martini to a 1920's inspired woman diving into a pool of mac 'n cheese to a piece of bacon claiming vegetarians spoil his "meaty fun."  It's like her work was made for a Lush Chef!  I think it took me at least half an hour to decide on which 5 designs I'd pick for my kitchen magnets...
