Cooking this afternoon, while A does her homework and John quizzes her. Nice, to have them in the kitchen with me. Little music, little wine, little garlic. Had a good IM discussion with Susie today strategizing potatoes au gratin, inspired me to make them too! She’s doing roasted chicken with rosemary, pancetta, and balsamic. I’m…

Haven’t posted for a couple of days – minor crisis here on Wednesday night, I was thisclose to wrapping up a post, when John and Nathan realized our dog Sigmund had disappeared. Sigs, or Roo as we call him (pictured here), is an old guy now – 13 years old, almost 14. He (almost) never…

Oh, I think it’s snowing, cool, a reward for all this dark cloudiness today. GLOOMY. I’d rather it were this day… Fourth of July, fireworks, with Susie, Sullivan, me, Vivian, John, and Stacey (Cory’s snapping the pic). Ah, it was a spectacular night, after a spectacular afternoon of bike riding for John and me. Warm,…

As I struggled to drag my butt out of bed this morning, I laughed at how completely NOT moderate I’ve been this weekend. Oops. Despite my best efforts to take only a few bites/sips of this and that, it all added up to p..l..e..n..t..y of food and wine. There’s nothing wrong with any one of…

Great night, we had such fun with John’s colleagues and their spouses, Clark and Cindy Opdahl, Scott and Beth Hagel, and newly-former/much-missed-already colleague Tom Ting and his wife Erin. Or as Tom’s now known, TT, or Traitor Tom. Awww, poor Tom. I don’t work with him, but I know the only reason anyone’s giving him…

Kim, and Stephanie and me, at our 20th high school reunion at the end of July. We weren’t in a photo together, and I don’t know how to photoshop us together. Someday, I’ll get better at this! Oh, I got a funny email from my dear high school girlfriend Kim (above). She said, you’ve always…

Yummy ONE-HALF of a toasted ham & gruyere on baguette last night (ate all the chips though, damn, “forgot” to tell them to hold the chips). Had a good salty-crunchy-melty thing going on, nothing bad about that. At Beaujo’s Wine Bar, with Kim. Opened with a pretty, crisp glass of Cava, delish. Moved on to…

In relatively typical fashion, I did NOT get to Coastal Seafoods for halibut, so I substitued eggs, delicious with the fresh polenta and red pepper oil. Not bad in a pinch, but halibut is better. Either way, the meal is deceptively light, plus colorful, nutritious, easy – and rather impressive. Needed a salad, arugula with…

Back to school today for Nathan, it was a great holiday break. It was just a couple of weeks ago that we kicked off all the fun at Emily’s bowling birthday party – I don’t know who had more fun, the kids or the moms (also below). Thank goodness for great friends! Nathan, Vivian, and…

Kim, me, and Susie – the moms! You can’t tell in the photo, but I’m wearing a cool-as-hell necklace that Susie made for me for my birthday. The girl makes killer jewelry – always good to have a friend who makes jewelry! Now I need a friend who designs clothing and another who creates fragrance…
