A Summer Night’s Food Prep

July 31, 2013

We have gobloads of tomatoes and basil so we decided to make the obvious: gazpacho and pesto. Here are some shots from the evening : ) Rather than dirty the Cuisinart (pesto) and the Vitamix (gazpacho) I tried to do both in the Vitamix with great success. I used this recipe with probably a lot […]

A Light And Stormy Night

August 15, 2012

How does a dip in a pool sound to a hot 37+6 week pregnant woman? Excellllent! My friend Lara and her two cute kiddos invited us (I just said us – not idea why – ahh!) over to her neighborhood pool this afternoon. I’ve been avoiding my bathing suit in public for some time (just […]

A Winter Cookout

January 20, 2008

Poor husband – we grilled out tonight and it’s below freezing! But we decided it didn’t make sense to broil everything, so grill it was.
