The Great Vegetarian Challenge: Day 1 First of all, today is my 7-year anniversary living in Kansas City. It is next to impossible for me to grasp this. It seems just like last week that Aaron and his boss drove to Fayetteville, AR to pack up my entire life and stick it in a tiny […]

So I’ve been mentally packing for my trip this week. One of the items I was giddily going to include was my new pair of cream Sperry Topsiders. Then the darkness set in: a cruel trick from Mother Nature, a plot against me in my desire to wear warm weather footwear. I tell you what, […]

The sniffles continue, the aches come and go. I looked outside and behold, there’s snow! Our bowls are filled with spicy thai curry. We sit on the couch as the wine makes me slurry. Alright I can sense you shaking your head. Moving on. Karee Curry with Veggies and Tofu: What it takes for maybe […]

This year we ordered the peel and seal style envelopes! Translation: No licking. No transporting rosemary flavored cracker crumbs to the envelope flap. No raw/sour tongue for the next month. Merry […]
