The Blues

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 1, 2010 at 11:28am

My current Facebook status: desk. bills. laundry. voicemail. dog poop. errands. dishes. reality. darn. That pretty much sums up my post-vacation blues, and I didn’t even mention the weather: grey. cold. minnesota. february. Right. In an effort to shake off my stale mood, I plopped a dollop of spicy salsa on the egg I had…

Sunday Laziness

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 17, 2010 at 11:43am

It feels a-mazing to be chilling out this Sunday vs. running errands, wrapping presents, cooking for a crowd, chasing around for school supplies, cleaning up the house, grocery shopping, or getting on a plane. I didn’t plan for it to be this way, but I am relaxing, and ahhh what a wonderful concept. Not sitting…

Baby, It’s Bitterly Cold Outside

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 8, 2010 at 7:36am

Seriously, it’s been below-zero for a week. Nothing new for Minnesota, just a particularly harsh reminder that holiday and birthday fun are officially over, welcome to real winter.  Forget the fluffy snow-twinkly light-wrapping presents-sledding winter. No, this kind of cold is way beyond the warming reach of hot cocoa. This is ugly, mean, dangerous cold,…

Whirlwind

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 9, 2009 at 9:37am

Just back from a last-minute trip to NYC with Nathan.  He was going to game six of the world series (Yankees vs. Phillies) with his father, but due to illness I ended up going with him instead and thanks to my in-laws being totally cool with us crashing in on them, we had a lovely…

At Least A Little Bit of Green

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 21, 2009 at 10:30am

It’s officially cold, wet, and dark, pretty much all of the time. My summer annuals are ugly withered sticks, mocking me for my fall clean-up procrastination. The trees are turning – brown, not fall colors – the leaves falling in soggy, mushy clumps. The flu is even working it’s way through our home. All a…

Boeuf Bourguignon (Beef Burgundy)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 12, 2009 at 1:15pm

Ah, turns out that winter has arrived in Minnesota more than a month early. Not good news for those of us who dislike living in cold, colorless darkness for half the year, sigh. But we make the best of it, hearty souls and all that, blah, blah, blah. Please bear with me while I use…

Late Summer Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 30, 2009 at 6:37pm

Hey all, I’m still kicking around. I spent last weekend in Madison, having a grand old time with my college girlfriends Cami and Michelle. We did the usual – stayed out too late Friday night, went to a Badger football game on Saturday, walked all over gorgeous downtown Madison and the UW-Madison campus, consumed the…

Another Tomato Tart

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 8, 2009 at 6:33am

Great food weekend, wow. More details later, but for now I’m posting a recipe for the easy tomato tart I made and brought to a dinner last night at Louis & Sue Ainsworth’s lovely home. I found the recipe on the excellent 101 Cookbooks blog and it’s a big, big winner. The Parmesan crust is…

So Long Montana, Hello Puppy Louis

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 30, 2009 at 8:02am

Good-bye summer! It was a chilly 45 degrees at 3 o’clock this morning, autumn is definitely in the air. If you’re wondering why I know the temp at 3 a.m., it’s not because I was out partying. It’s because we got…a new puppy! Puppy Louis, a mini goldendoodle (will be 45 lbs. full grown), and…

Garlicky Cherry Tomato and Bread Gratin

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 1, 2009 at 11:25am

Warm bread and ripe tomatoes, what a pairing. I could stop there – with a shake or two of salt and pepper – and be very happy. But add garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, a little cheese, fresh herbs, and a blast of heat and you have garlicky cherry tomato and bread gratin –…
