Did you know you could gain weight by painting your living room?

Mhm.

Particularly when you use a color called Marscapone

mascarpone2

Marscapone… a fresh, very rich cow’s milk cheese — double or triple cream

(60% to 75% milk fat)

One of the foods that make the food police quiver and stop dead in their tracks.

So be careful, my friends,

be very careful of your color choices when painting.

Oh...

And I also don’t suggest you think about the color all day as you paint

and then find a recipe

for marscapone mac and cheese

…and make it for dinner.

MascarponeMacNCheese

Nope.

Now I need to incorporate a lot of black in the livingroom

it’s slimming you know.

~Hey…take a visit to Key West if you need a break

or maybe put your running shoes on and run down there if you had marscapone mac and cheese for dinner

and visit Key West Style

a blog from a delightful looking home furnishings shop.

I was invited to do a guest post…on Florida color.

That looks amazing! I almost always pick paint colors correlating to food. They are so yummy and rich!

vignette design said...

Very funny! I love all the names the paint companies give their colors. Marscapone would do me in! Thanks for the recipe! That mac and cheese looks incredible!

donna baker said...

I believe you and I personally don't think they should name paints after food, especially such as marscapone.

Centsational Girl said...

Oh, you are killing me today. Your mac n cheese is making me drool - MUST HAVE !!! I imagine it's dangerous painting any room the color of key lime pie too . . happens to be one of my weaknesses.

That is funny. I painted my living room a color similar to that cream color and it is called Crumb Cookie. It does look delish!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

I can gain weight just be reading "Mascarpone" Yikes - now I gotta undo my top button! Fun post. A little scared to try the Mac & cheese. Could be dangerous!!

Barbara said...

Wow. Mascarpone in a mac and cheese recipe? Amazing. Got to try that.

Thanks Linda for dropping by my blog. Your writing and photos have been an inspiration for quite some time. Although, I'm lactose intolerant I can still dream.

Ok I am now officially starving at 1:14 in the morning. Yum.

Priscilla said...

I purchased the cute yellow curtains from pottery barn last spring, and have been dreaming of painting my dining room and kitchen mascarpone! I love the color. I'll let you know how it turns out when I'm finished.

Love it! I am always influenced by the names of the paint colors I choose. It must work both ways for me, from audio and visual perspectives. However, I don't think I've ever come across "food" colors. I might someday be in trouble. Yum mac and cheese. It's the grown up version!
