Trick or treat? Guess which witch has her natural hair color again?! Ooooh, I love being a witch! I do this every once in awhile (go brunette, that is; I’m a witch all the time, ha), often in the fall when I’m sick of summer highlights. It’s always a little shocking to see just how…

Little bonus with John’s bro Tom coming to stay with us tonight. He’s in town on business, and therefore busy for din, but able to pull off sleeping here (and perhaps a little ice cream eating?) so we can see him at least a bit before he flies back to NYC at some ungodly hour…

Happy Birthday Carol! We had yet another amazing dinner at 20.21 last night, to celebrate Carol Mack’s birthday. Her husband Aaron put together our little party, including their kids Ethan and Hannah, as well as Andrew Zimmern and his father Bob, visiting from Maine. And ohhh, I’m still full from our literal feast. I did…

“I don’t feel tardy!” That’s a line from the Van Halen classic, Hot for Teacher, which I confess I listened to three (!) times in a row this morning on my walk, cracking up the entire time. Totally bawdy and ridiculous, and yet so infectious, I think I laughed for the entire 10 minutes. (Clearly…

Check out this antioxidant-packed lunch. I felt so virtuous eating it – not to mention, it was delicious! Quinoa (red) with sauteed swiss chard. Mmm… I’ve been experimenting with different whole grains, especially those that are high in protein and with a big antioxidant punch to boot. For breakfast I had rolled rye – very…

Happy Birthday David! How cute is this picture Stacey took of him, holding Coop, in Montana? Nice view off my parents’ deck, huh? Spectacular. The blondie and the redhead look pretty cute, too!

Badgers vs. Gophers in Camp Randall today! Go Bucky, Go Bucky, F*ck ‘Em Bucky, Go Bucky! Wish I were there, Gopher weekend in the Madtown is always great fun. LOTS of Minneapolitans make the scenic drive down I-94 for a naughty get-away in lovely Madison. What happens in Madtown stays in Madtown (forget Vegas, pshaw!)……

Hooooeeey! Good morning! That’ll wake you up, a nice, brisk, 33 (!) degree walk to start the day. Few first snow flurries to boot. Whoa! But I was ready, with long underwear and windpants, a pocketful of tissues, and a soft hat. I actually enjoyed being out there, mostly because I’ve been so house-bound since…

Ohhhh, I DID get knocked down with a cough, damn. I was down for the count yesterday, my friends, totally out of it. Better today, but still pretty tired. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be more myself and back to thinking up (lighter!) recipes. In the interim I’ve been grabbing simple things that require no prep like…

Yawn! I’m TIRED after my Kim & Suz Slumber Party! We had so much fun. Nice dinner, great wine, time to talk, an after-dinner stroll around the neighborhood, lots of silliness – basically, a total blast. We all padded off to bed around 1 a.m. – not quite like the good ol’ days when we’d…
