Monday, October 22nd, 2012

We decided to celebrate our first anniversary by using the weekend to just be together. We enjoyed some good food, watched some movies, and spent Sunday at a corn maze, picking out pumpkins, petting farm animals, and getting cider and donuts at our favorite cider mill.

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Folks, I don’t know why I haven’t written anything here in over a month. I do know that I spend 3 of those weekends traveling to MN, so that may have had something to do with it. But I have Monday’s off, it’s not like I don’t have enough time for this. Anywho. Since I […]

husby: I had Rainbow Connection stuck in my head this morning, and you know how much I think Kermit the frog sounds like Carl Sagen, so then I had to go listen to something with Carl Sagen in it. Ode to the Brain – Symphony of Science

For instance, white sauce should be reserved for seafood. Pesto is best(o) when paired with soft cheeses such as feta or chevre (although I […]
