Yee-haw! Rebecca and I finished our video project on caffeine. It’s cute – nothing fancy! But we worked hard into the evening and hit quite a snag when the videos uploaded as .MOV files and Windows Movie Maker wouldn’t accept them! We ended up using the software that came with my Kodak camera, but it didn’t let us do much. You’ll be able to see the video the week that it is due!
We were so frustrated with technology that Matt poured us a little of his homemade pumpkin ale -
It was pretty good, but a tad sour and lacked carbonation. So we then split a Cottonwood Pumpkin Ale 3 ways:
My hero of a husband cooked dinner tonight while I worked again.
On the menu:
Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti
First he roasted a spaghetti squash (click here for the video!!!) and then sauteed some zucchini and green peppers
And he made a homemade sauce with:
- A can of crushed tomatoes (28 oz)
- A can of diced tomatoes (14 oz)
- A can of tomato paste (6 oz)
- Garlic (3 cloves)
- Lots of sherry (~1.5 oz?)
- Herbs like oregano
- Red pepper flakes to taste
He simmered it down until it was nice and thick. Then added more sherry. We love our sherried tomato sauces!
I had some Black Box Wine with dinner – tried out the Sauv Blanc. I so wish this had been a red wine instead of white It’s past the season for white. It was just OK. Y’all know I like boxed wine, so I don’t have anything again the box, but the wine itself just wasn’t strong enough for me. I prefer chardonnays and of course, reds.
Love my new glasses Larbs + Matt!
After dinner we watched The Office and 30 Rock. Love those shows!! Turns out our DVR missed an Office!!!! When we were in Montana. I assumed that there hadn’t been an episode that week, but we saw the ending on the beginning of the 30 Rock! Gotta check HuLu.
Tomorrow we’re celebrating my birthday – I’m turning 26 again – with our friends in a mid-day brewery outing! Better get my beauty rest. Too bad it’s going to rain. Bummer.
Have a wonderful perfect fall weekend!
