The Mothership

December 31, 2010

If you see signs out front like this, it must be a good sign. If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen this tweet yesterday…and I have to say that it still holds true.  Central Market is like the Disney World of food, and I wanted nothing more but to strap on my […]

Christmas Replay

December 30, 2010

Word on the street is that Denver is supposed to get 8 inches of snow today.   Because of course it would wait til we’re gone to snow where we live.  And of course it would wait til after Christmas.   Of course. I think we need a Christmas replay for when we get back…only […]

Plate ‘O’ Pork

December 30, 2010

I’m a little late with this post, but let’s be honest here:  this is what I would like for breakfast every day of my life.  With extra gravy.   Please and thank you. Our last morning in Little Rock was spent at Nate’s Mimom’s house, where we were served with amazingly low-sugar baked fruit, biscuits, […]

New Christmas Tree

December 29, 2010

I don’t know how these things come to mind, but I just can’t help it sometimes!   I feel as though I just discovered sliced bread…this is going to be my Christmas tree next year! Why?  Well, a certain someone who writes this blog but shall remain nameless has a certain propensity of injury in […]

The Shower

December 29, 2010

No, no, I’m not talking about my dislike of showers.   That’s for another post.   This one’s about my future sister-in-law’s shower that I went to yesterday.  And the fact that it was at one of my all-time favorite restaurants, Maggiano’s Little Italy.  Give me Italian food any day of the week and I’m […]

Missing the Kinection

December 28, 2010

Please forgive us…we had just eaten and I think we were food drunk… [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpR94yxicco&hl=en&fs=1] And for me?  Just keep in mind that I had a pasta baby (you know the kind…where your abdominal muscles have zero control and you just can’t suck it in) in my stomach and was scared of spontaneous vomiting at any […]

Authentic

December 28, 2010

It’s official:  I’m on a mission.  A mission for an amazing Italian tomato sauce that either comes from or rivals the best secret family recipes from Italy.   For starters, I’ll need some wine. And salad?  Sure, why not?!  I’m sure the extra nutrients would help my brain on this tedious mission… You see, ever […]

The Big Dam Bridge

December 27, 2010

I’m so glad I’m not the only one obsessed with reading old cookbooks…I know they’re not technically literature, but they’re still amazing!   Yesterday, other than my sister in law Chrissy and I completely wearing ourselves out on the hills of Little Rock, it was a pretty uneventful day.  We worked out, ate breakfast, napped, […]

New Obsession

December 26, 2010

I have a new obsession. It’s called collecting family cookbooks, only to sit back and read them nostalgically as if I lived during the 1940′s and before. I really think I might need a life…
