My new shoes!!

I don't know if I've ever been quite so excited about a new pair of shoes, my comfy Euro-clogs ordered out of Shoes for Crews.

There were so many great suggestions that followed my first "Critic to Cook" entry on Serious Eats. Seems I really struck a nerve. But the long list of footwear was on the spendy side and I'm broke. So, I compromised and purchased the generic brand for $50-ish. It's still exhausting to stand for extended periods, but my feet only start aching toward the end of my shift.

Last night, a server gave me a super cool tip. When she first started, she would come home and grab a couple cans of beer from the fridge. Not to drink, but to roll around on her growling dawgs. When she told that story to a friend, the buddy said: "I'm never gonna drink beer at your house again." I dunno. Sounds like a brilliant way to cross purpose to me. You?

Your shoes look great. I agree with you on the beer cans--sounds very green to me. Besides, most people have no idea what happens to those cans before they hit the store. Queasy folk should be washing any can they tip into their mouths.

Very chic. Anyone grossed out by the rolling beer tip should stay away from my house. I'm rolling a cold diet-coke as I type. Regina

P.S. Great blog. Regina, again.

I like to have a couple of different pairs of shoes to use in the kitchen. Changing it up can help an aching foot.

I wear nothing but Dansko clogs myself right now. They're perfect for my SF commute :)
