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

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 […]

P.S.

I should also mention that my husband got a hankerin’ yesterday to make dessert. I blinked and mixed berry cobbler appeared right before me. I know. I know.

I Need Some Serious Namaste Up In Here

tumblr_lbyfz9FpRK1qdz03r

So, after all the raking yesterday I woke up to find my rib cage, hips and waist broken. I decided to book a massage for this Saturday and to stretch it out with some after-work yoga. I lit some nag champa, cranked up an old Air album, and within 20 minutes I came back to […]

Let Them Eat Crab Cake

Mission Front Yard Leaves: completed. Mission Back Yard Leaves: I can’t bear to imagine or I’ll start crying and never stop. But then crab cakes entered my mouth. I had forgotten the power of crab cakes and how with one bite they can erase any sign of depression, anxiety or general sadness due to leaf […]

The Cottage Pie Haze

tumblr_lbvp82pqjv1qdz03r

Last night I was under the influence, of Martha Stewart. And when you are in this condition meals like cottage pie come out of it. It’s a lot like shephard’s pie, but instead of mashed potatoes, they are sliced thinly and roasted on top of the seasoned meat. You can clearly see how this turned […]

I Will Be Signing Autographs

Well, it happened. The break I’ve been waiting for. This might be my last post because I’m headed out on the road y’all. Turns out the karaoke leader at the birthday party last night works for Universal Records and he was so enamored with my version of “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!” that he […]
