Like my friend Kathleen McGivney, my better half and I have been trying to cook at home more often this summer.  One of our great resources has been the US magazine Cooking Light.  The new September issue wanders outside the boundaries of cooking into lifestyle a bit, including a mutli-page article on the Cooking Light "FitHouse".  I would not normally have paid much attention to an article like that until I saw a couple of the photos of the "FitHouse"....(Left-hand are not the same photos that were in the print magazine, but they are taken from the "virtual tour" on the website; right-hand photos are taken from the "BrillHouse"):

"Umm, honey, isn't that the light fixture in our dining room?"

"and don't we have the matching sconces, too?"

But then it got really creepy:

"Whoa, isn't that the fixture I just put in our bedroom?"

Perhaps this means that an alternate career in interior design isn't that far-fetched, or that we're trendsetting, or that Cooking Light has really figured out that notion of "mass customization" for their audience.  

Any which way, I'm going to turn the page, that recipe for Vietnamese Summer Rolls looks really good...
