Repentance Supper

In an effort to cleanse myself from my gluttonous sins, I hereby declare this week “Eat No More Than 200 Calories Per Meal” week. Yeah that’s gonna last about 200 seconds. Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Cilantro-Lime Dressing: * ½ pound frozen shrimp: thawed, peeled, deveined and pat dry * 1 head iceberg lettuce, leaves separated […]

How Are We Eating More Turkey Already?

We made it home! I would have posted this dinner last night except for the fact that my brain fell into a post-Thanksgiving coma and didn’t come out until…well, I’m not sure I’m even out of it yet. While I was busy unpacking from our trip and getting settled, Aaron had an unexpected craving to […]

No Vacancy

Alright, there’s just no eloquent way of saying this. There was a cockroach in my yoga pants this morning. And get this, I didn’t even notice until 10 minutes into wearing them that it was paying rent for a space on my thigh. If this isn’t a sure sign that I need a break, I […]

Tex-Mex Pork, Y’all

This weekend was fantastic. From getting massages, to Aaron making the best pizza known to man, to attending a fabulous party yesterday with great friends, I’m satisfied. Oh and I got 2 new cooking magazines in the mail. That sealed the deal for what I call an excellent weekend. Now it’s time to press the […]

Fakesgiving! (Yes, That’s What I Said)

Remember our friends with the farm who (whom, who, whom, whatever) we visited back in the summer? Well, today we’re headed their away once again for a festive “Fakesgiving” celebration. (Sunny, you will be missed. Talked about of course, but missed.) This is our first time to attend this annual soire, so I think wearing […]

Aaron Cooked!

You guys, this morning Aaron said he wanted to make pizza, and he wasn’t kidding. While I showered, did my nails and channel surfed, he made dough from scratch, simmered a homemade sauce, marinated chicken and roasted corn. I am seriously in love. I did help wash a dish or two, of course. But I […]

That Is One Cultured Egg

This morning’s breakfast is sort of hodgepodge. Using a mix of Japanese mushrooms, cumin-spiced eggs and fresh parmesan, I’m going global! Or, uh, purging the last of the fridge goods before heading to the store. Let’s go with global. Breakfast Taco: What it took for 2: * 2 whole wheat flour tortillas * 3 eggs, […]

Pilaf, Pretty Please.

So, Aaron had his 2-week follow up appointment this morning for the plethora of nasal surgeries he endured not long ago. I’ll leave out the horrid details, but after some sweaty, squeamish moments in the chair, a near black out and a quick trip home to hang his assaulted face over the sink, the man […]

Just Like Mom Used To Make

tumblr_lc25jaZLQL1qdz03r

That little phrase has been the supplier for many a giggle between my sister and me. Any time I ask her what she’s cooking for dinner, without fail her response ends with “ya know, just like mom used to make.” I’m positive she says it to drive me to the nearest noose, but I can’t […]

Is That a Snowflake In My Soup

tumblr_lc0cvzw1aJ1qdz03r

Tonight is a night many Kansas Citians have been waiting for. At last, a local weatherman, Gary Lezak, is giving his winter weather forecast at 10pm. I’ll be honest, I’m bracing myself for pessimal news. I’m even polishing my baseball bat in case of an unexpected, belligerent urge to bash in the TV. Things could […]
