canning

A few weeks ago Evelyn’s awesome parents had Juan and I over for dinner to celebrate our wedding and her father brought out a course guide from the Institute of Culinary Education. We’re pretty sure that it was a ploy to get Evelyn and I to take a Knife Skills class so that we stop cutting ourselves, aaand we’ll do that eventually!
In the interim I took Old Time Savory Canning with Chef Daniel Stone and it was amazing! I always get that weird feeling when I walk into something new …

hurricane

Seriously. And you know, we had an earthquake on Tuesday and a hurricane on Sunday? Hells Bells that’s pretty weird, right? Up until about Thursday at 3pm I didn’t even think that we would have to cancel our reception. Most stuff is done, Caleb and Matt were in town (thankfully, there were only two out of towners) the photographer was booked, as was the bartender. We planned to go to Costco at 12 on Sat, to dinner with friends at 6 and then come home to do last minute prep! …

I’m reading them again because I’m crazy about them. This time I’m noticing so many small details that make it so wonderful. I highlighted this recently, really gets me thinking about my priorities here in this place where the food is free.
What must it be like, I wonder, to live in a world where food appears at the press of a button? How would I spend the hours I now commit to combing the woods for sustenance if it were so easy to come by? What do they do all …

dishes

But really, we need a bigger kitchen. We wouldn’t even mind living in an apartment that was like, 50% kitchen. This one-wall small oven NO drawer nonsense is just about to be too much. We have to keep some of our new appliances in the basement, and the cake (not the cake-plate that has to stay in it’s box in the basement but the “cake”) is that our new dishes DON’T FIT IN THE CABINETS! hahahhahahahahaha what? Who registers for dishes without measuring their cabinets? Probably a lot of people? …

Sometimes I take off my wedding ring and put my engagement ring on alone and try to remember the two months or so that I just wore the engagement ring and it’s hard to even remember. That was only 5 months ago. It feels like forever.

This weekend JCPE worked for hopefully the last full weekend in a while (ie: morning – 3am both days) so I’ve been home. I finished Twin Peaks, I made two curtains and re-covered two pillows (and stared at my couch for a while trying to …

Picture 3

So JCPE and I are enjoying a romantic evening at home watching “Machete” a totally ridiculous movie where the LEAST believable thing is tied between Jessica Alba having any ability to pronounce words en Espanol with an accent and someone allowing Jessica Alba to be a federal agent (and seriously, Steven Segal has an accent in this movie and I’m pretty sure they just crucified Cheech).
More importantly we just had a nice dinner.
We went from having ZERO foods, I was home sick last week and had tuna and pasta for …

man

I haven’t felt like I’ve seen my husband in like, months. I can’t believe that we’re not even at our two-month-aversery! We’re not, we’re less than. There’s A LOT of stuff that we need to do that I need him to do, like get me into USAA so I can get a sweet new ATM card that doesn’t charge me $7 to use an ATM (I’m looking square into your eyes, citibank).
Actually, do you have speakers or headphones? Please click on this and wiggle with me while you read! …
