Re: Wedding Planning!

I've been thinking about other traditions David and I have as well. One of my favorites is Stay-In-Bed-All-Day Day, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. We do it twice a year. We don't set an alarm, just wake up naturally. We do get out of bed to shower and put on clean pjs, then get ri...

Re: TV in General - Rants, Reviews, Etc.

Hmmm. You guys make me think we need to give Undeclared another shot. We adored Freaks and Geeks, but we barely made it through the pilot of Undeclared. We didn't bother to continue with it.

Re: Wedding Planning!

David and I have lots of traditions, almost all of which were begun before we got married (because, well, this is our first holiday season as a married couple). We definitely do a mix of carry-over from our families of origin and setting new traditions for ourselves. I imagine the new traditions wil...

I just read that post. I'm with you in your disgust. Ugh. Ditto. I think it's even worse that the reason it was only "almost cheating" was that the guy lost interest in her. That's one of the parts that I reacted to most strongly. That and how she dismisses her culpability at the end by coming to t...

I strongly dislike the new editor hired at APW, and have since reading her post about how she almost intentionally cheated on her husband. The post got a lot of praise for being brave and insightful and all that, but it disgusted me in a visceral way. I'm disappointed that she'll now be a constant v...

I'm a bit wary, now, since the Trickster books are my favorite. He's anxious to read more of her, but I fear it'll be a slight decline. I think we mig...

Re: The Smells in My Kitchen

I am back in the kitchen after taking basically the entire summer off.

Marinara sauce on the stove right now. Apple butter in the slow cooker.

Made pumpkin waffles this morning for breakfast. Tonights dinner is a baked penne with roasted vegetables.

I love the fall. I love to cook.

Steph, it's pretty ginger-y! The recipe I used says to mix it with club soda to make ginger ale, but I didn't care for it that way. The somewhat metallic taste of club soda didn't pair well with the ginger syrup I made, at least not in my opinion, anyway. I swapped out club soda for tonic and was mu...
