Rishia Zimmern sent me this picture today of Noah, titled, Takes After His Dad. Indeed! I laughed out loud, it’s so damn cute. Andrew doesn’t wear diapers though… Especially while he’s away in Spain and Morocco filming the first segment of his new Travel Channel series, Bizarre Foods. You may have caught the pilot, shot…

Memorial Day. Does one say Happy Memorial Day? It sounds wrong, on a day meant for reflection and honoring those who’ve passed before us. Today I’ll think about my Grandma and Grandpa Meyer (that’s my grandma, holding baby me), who meant the world to me. I miss them very, very much. And Andrew Cohen, John’s…

Burger and beer for lunch, yeah baby! Now I’m headin’ out to the pool, to cool off on this hot, hot, hot day, whew. Now THIS is how Memorial Day weekend is supposed to be – woo hoo! Wow, lots of sun today, hopefully not too much. The sun and I haven’t been so friendly…

Glorious day! I had my first official swim in the pool and it was…lovely. So lovely. Two diapers had their first swims too, on the bottoms of babies Cooper and Noah. The ‘rents – Stacey, Bowen, and Rishia – all had their official first swims too! No diapers on them though… Cooper loved the water,…

We will not be huddling outside, freezing our Minnesota asses off, this Memorial Day weekend, no sir. It’s gonna be a hot one, smokin’ hot, and sultry too (my hair HATES humidity, oh well). I’m running over to the store without a specific plan, to pick up steaks, chicken, burgers, buns, chips, fruit, salads, beer….

Generous Grandpa Little League Sponsors Laukka & Rempfer, woo hoo! In uniform, woo hoo again! The grandpas of Tommy and TJ, two cuties on the team, got together to sponsor our team this year. The gramps are long-time friends and winter together in Florida, therefore our team name, the Laukka & Rempfer Floridians. Hilarious. Good…

OMG, this has nothing to do with food but is so goddamn funny that I have to put a link to it. John and I first saw it on a Saturday Night Live episode that featured animated TV Funhouse shorts by the hilarious and more than slightly twisted Robert Smigel. This one was my fav,…

Here’s a funny thing – the shrimp scampi is absolutely delicious today. Go figure, I like it much better cold than hot. In fact, now that I think of it, I do generally like cold shrimp more than hot, unless it’s fried shrimp, of course. (Fried shrimp, ahhhhhh…) Weird! So perhaps I will post the…

John, Stu, and Rudy are lunching together today, at I Nonni, damn I wish I could have joined them. But…no. Instead I’m here waiting for, I kid you not, the Maytag repairman. BRU-TAL! Sigh. Hopefully John will achieve bringing home a few tasties, as well as the wine he’ll surely be buying (as I said,…

Cool, crisp salad topped with a warm poached or over-easy egg. Prrr… If you haven’t converted, you MUST, it is truly one of the best dishes on the planet. The greens tossed with a tart vinaigrette cut the richness of the yolk, a bit of minced basil adds a hint of sweetness, crumbled bacon and…
