Oh, Happy Friday! You know, one of those Fabulous Friday nights, when you go out with a completely cool couple, previously unknown, and just have an enormously great time? This was one of those Fridays, thanks to Sheri & Darin Lynch (Darin is a basketball/client friend of John’s). Yeah, good times, and good food to…

Brrr! It’s the real kind of cold out there now, not the fake stuff, oh no. I’ve even had to wear a coat (no!) these last few days (I usually get away with a cozy sweater, soft hat, and a big ol’ fuzzy scarf). Should serve to put me in the mood for the holidays,…

Man, I had The Best, most kicked-back, lazy-ass, do-nothing day yesterday, and it was awesome. A no-guilt, slug-city existence, I read a whole book (The Virgin of Small Plains, marginal but entertaining), watched two movies (Higher Learning and the hilarious There’s Something About Mary), wore my jammies all day, drank a huge pot of coffee,…

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all had/are having a great day! I certainly did, I had a blast, but uff, I ate too much. The Very Immoderate Epicurean! Man, we had an enormous amount of fantastic food, a real group effort. My mom cooked all day. Stacey’s house looked gorgeous. And now her kitchen has…

In case you’re wondering, I am thinking about Thanksgiving and in fact started cooking today! I’m thankfully (ha) not hosting – my sister Stacey is – but we’re making the meal together, for 12 people, so there’s plenty to do. I’m following the turkey, stuffing, and gravy recipes I posted last year, as well as…

So, to pick up on a couple of riffs from yesterday (and no, don’t worry, I am NOT drinking beer today, ha)… First, dinner at Fogo de Chao was fantastic! What a blast! What a scene! That place is hoppin’, people, and while many of the customers were Badger fans (how do I know? Because…

On Wisconsin, Part Deux!! I tell ya, once you go to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, it never leaves you… Nevahhhhh! Even if you want it to, ha…but then again, who would want it to? What’s not to lurve about all the beer, cheese, and brats one can eat for $25? While chewing along to the…

La La Lucia’s! It has been awhile since a stop by my favorite restaurant, so when John had a last-minute suggestion to slide in last night, I said (screamed) YESSS! I was really tired, and not at all in the mood for cooking (I had planned exactly nothing for dinner), and it was cold and…

Here, there, and everywhere, blowing around with the wild November winds! Of note: A Persian-style Saturday lunch with Mary Pappas and Kathie Radcliffe, at Shiraz Fire Roasted Cuisine. Always fabulous to giggle and gossip with Mary and Kathie, especially while sipping hot tea from tall cups and eating fluffy saffron rice with beef/lamb skewers and…

Big baking day today, not my usual, but I had an awful lot of fun. Neither of the treats are for here – thank goodness! – but for sharing via John’s office bake sale tomorrow and our neighborhood women’s association gathering tonight. I bake something for John’s colleagues every year, for their annual United Way…
