We had a great time on Saturday – imported the Moms from Evert and had a blast! Visited the Chihuly Gardens and Glass and the Great Wheel – Which Bev DID ride – and I lost a bet! 🙂 Then we had drinks, dinner and gelato. A real nice day.
Here are some fine photos Christopher took:
Green garlic soup and beet salad.
Beet salad is fantastic and wins this round…but the garlic soup is
still very good.
The frites below were still divine…heavenly! I’m in withdrawals….
A thing of beauty…
Frites with fontina and Demi-glacé
Enjoying coffee on a deck
Overlooking Santa Fe square… It’s quite nice out now compared to the
In Alamogordo having lunch at Lotaburger…a New Mexico thing
Christopher is glad we were able to stop at!
We are having green chile cheeseburgers and fries!
Merry Christmas to us!!
I’m not normally such a brand name queen, but people rave about their
Le Creuset cookware. It’s damn pricey though.
But what should magically appear in the clearance rack at City
Kitchens?! Behold! For the enamel not taking hold to one of the
handles we got “Grand Pierre” for 50% off!!
Now, what to cook in him first??! So many things….
So I finished work today and was waiting for Christopher to meet me at our local bar for some drinks….but what should be overheard in the cacophony of conversations?!
“I love Lefse”
Wow! So I searched for the obviously scandinavian-oriented culprit. Turns out it was this pair of ladies who would not give me the time of day when I tried to express my exuberance for said lefse as well.
Well excuse me…just trying to be holiday friendly…
Merry Christmas!!!! 🙂
Eggspress my surprise!
This bacon breakfast scone has a whole egg in it!
Rainy Sunday Breakfast
Eggs and from scratch (no mix!) blueberry pancakes!!
A snickerdoodle cupcake with cream cheese frosting topped with a
snikerdoodle cookie! Uuuugh! 🙂
Fish on the run!
Having an awesome dinner at Genke Sushi.
And for those of you not in the know…yes, that is a conveyor
belt! 🙂 YUM!
Holy Crap! Where have you been all my life? This will go great with my Wine Glass Holder!
Found thanks to dlisted
We’re getting quiche!
I guess we must be incredibly entertaining house guests to deserve
A toast for good toast!
I had a toaster. I hated it. Despised it.
Look at my new toaster OVEN! I’m more excited about it than I
probably should be, but hey – it’s the little things in life, right?
I already know it makes great chicken nuggets 🙂
I swear I followed the instructions to a "t" — here’s hoping attempt
#2 will turn out better
So we got suckered in to the "perfect brownie pan" after watching the
commercial so many times…thanks Christopher for the perfect
Christmas present! I’ll be damned If it doesn’t actually work, and
pretty well actually! Here are the second batch results (first batch
was little gingerbread cakes!). And yes, we are aware of the gigantic
cupcake mold commercial….only the future will tell 😉
