Gourmet Leftovers

Gourmet is a cultural ideal associated with the culinary arts of fine food and drink, or haute cuisine, which is characterized by refined, even elaborate preparations and presentations of aesthetically balanced meals of several contrasting, often quite rich courses. Okay, so MAYBE it isn’t gourmet… Hahaha. My MIL likes to make sure that we don’tContinue reading “Gourmet Leftovers”

Throwback Thursday – Thumbdrive Edition

I found an old thumb drive that had a bunch of files backed up from 2008 and older. Wow. I mean, really. WOW. What a blast from the past and a reflection on how much things have changed. You shouldn’t dwell on the past, especially for your own mental health, but you can’t just forgetContinue reading “Throwback Thursday – Thumbdrive Edition”

Low Carb Sausage Soup

At the slightest sign of cool weather, we end up making so much soup. Broccoli and Cheese soup. Potato Soup. Beef Vegetable Soup. And this new traditional Sausage Soup. That MIL likes to add kale. And I HATE kale. But this soup is amazing. I also don’t mind the baby kale as much. Especially thisContinue reading “Low Carb Sausage Soup”

Tell Me Your Pet Is Spoiled Without Telling Me…

Your pet is totally spoiled. Pictures are just a tiny bit blurry, but it’s hard to take a photograph with your phone while holding a fork out for a dog. My MIL usually asks me to make her Goldie Doodle an egg when I make myself eggs. Today I made myself Tamagoyaki (Japanese Rolled Omelette)Continue reading “Tell Me Your Pet Is Spoiled Without Telling Me…”

Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom

I checked out a copy of this book. I always love taking at least one cookbook among my library conquests. This one will definitely be one of the books I need to hunt down from the local used book store. I think I recall McKay’s actually having one in stock, but we don’t have theContinue reading “Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom”

Tell Me Something About Buddhism

Found another gem at the library! It’s almost time for it to be returned so I thought I’d take some photographs of the artwork and give a bit of a review. I really liked this one. It’s short, simple, and to the point. The name pretty much summed it up. Questions and Answers for theContinue reading “Tell Me Something About Buddhism”

Sometimes You Just Need To Sleep

The boys were exhausted after the vet trip. We’re like 20 minutes away from the office and apparently it just really took a lot out of them. We came home and let them go free. I had to run around and do some Christmas shopping for the smaller human then pick her up from school.Continue reading “Sometimes You Just Need To Sleep”

Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop

This slice-of-life romantic comedy-drama is pretty much everything I needed for a feel-good animation. It’s currently on Netflix. I definitely recommend it! Awkward teenagers, nostalgia and the ever-changing world around them. I have … two vinyl albums that I got a long time ago when I was looking through a music shop in Atlanta rightContinue reading “Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop”
