Another flashback. I will catch up soon, I hope. After our road trip to Kansas City in June, we decided to take one more to Missouri in early July. We left early one Friday morning to get there to enjoy the sun. We had 8 people, 2 cars, and too much beer to mention. After spending the entire afternoon on a party barge we rented, we …

Main Dish: Garlic Crusted Pork Loin This pork loin was very tender and delicious. …

Girls Night: Cookbook Exchange

daisi - December 22, 2011

This year, my work friends and I decided to have a cookbook exchange for Christmas. Maybe people have been doing this for years… but it was my first time. It was so fun and so practical, as most cookbooks are less than $20. Plus, who doesn’t love a new cookbook? The only downfall was the weather – it was so cold and rainy, but provided …

road trip

Yes, I’m so far behind on updating my blog with my social activities. Yes, I realize June was six months ago. Yes, I will get caught up.

This weekend we participated in the annual Jingle Bell run, a fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation. It’s really fun because everyone dresses up Christmas-y, even the dogs. Since we don’t have a dog, I had to borrow a reindeer. Her name is Foxy, as in Foxy Cleopatra. Here is our “team” for this year. We had a little better turn out last year… But this …

                  This is 7 minutes after we landed and Jeffrey Howard (part-time chauffeur) picked us up from the airport. Since Trier was landing 30 minutes later, we chose this prime location for a happy hour beer while we waited on her. We got to sit outside, which was the only thing this place had going for it …
