The After Party-Lazys

Scott and I went out to a Halloween party in our neighborhood the night before. We stayed out late and got up "early" so today resulted in our first lazy day in probably 3 years. 

I made a pate fermente the night before and took it out when I got up to "take the chill" off. 

This is my, "I have to do dishes face."

Leftovers for lunchfast on my end, cause, "I didn't want to make no stinking crepes," or something like that.

I spent the day in PJs complaining about my stomach and enjoying a Packers win.

Scott watches one Packer game a year and today was that day. 

I had oatmeal for breakfast, but was still hungry an hour later so I made myself an egg. 

We were randomly starving, so I fried some fresh tortilla chips and made a batch of guacamole.

Best husband ever!

Guacamole and Fresh Chips
2-3 Avocados
1 Hot Pepper minced
A bit of Minced Onion and Tomato
1 Garlic Clove minced
A dash of Cumin
Salt and Pepper

Combine all this stuff and puree with a potato masher.

Fresh Local Tortiallas like La Perla
A Deep Fryer
Salt, And Plenty of It

Fry at 375 degrees making sure to stir with tongs for fist minute or so. Let chips cook for five or so minutes. Shake fryer basket intermittently. Remove from fryer and either dump in bowl with newspaper or paper towling or let drain over drying rack on top of jellyroll pan. Salt. Continue process until all chips are done, making sure not to overcrowd.


We scarfed them down as fast as we made them.

Even though we were being lazy today I still had to do something and made Pain de Campagne. This is supposedly the dough that used in most French breads. 

I did a horrible job at trying to make epi baguettes. 

It was pick on Peanut Sunday, so I picked on peanut. 

We were hungry and lazy. We heated up some frozen veggie bulgur chili from Mark Bittman's Food Matters cookbook.

Our night ended by watching The Artist. I actually hadn't heard of it until it won a bunch of awards. I kept forgetting it wasn't an actual old movie every time a familiar actor showed up in a scene. I've always enjoyed watching silent films late at night on AMC back when I had cable.

Christmas of America

Earlier this week a certain naughty kitty decided he didn't like my puzzle and took apart half of it. I put tin foil across to stop him from doing it again. I heard cats don't like tin foil. Is that actually true or just a rumor?  Brooke cleaned our upstairs closet and found two Chia Pets. Neither one of them are Chia Obama , though Homer does look awfully presidential in this pose. They haven't been growing so she created some makeshift greenhouses. My pops came back to pick up my mom and help me with my 1920's toilet. A week later and no leaks. Looks like we did a good job. This gave me an excuse to try out my Christmas present from my in-laws.    Then we headed to the Mall of America. I'm pretty sure we are the only ones we know that actually shop here. I worked here at a spin-off store of Forever 21 when I first moved to Minnesota.  I feel no shame for shopping at this monstrosity. It often has the best sales rack of any

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.

Honeymoon But With Kids: Duluth Sailing and Madeline Island Beach Days

Day 1 Exactly 10 years ago Scott and I took a 10 day trip to Upper Michigan. While we were on this trip I said we should do this again with our kids in 10 years. Flash forward 10 years and here we are. We are following our same route and visiting the same places with a few additions. Thankfully we had these two kids in the preceding 10 years and they're road trip pros at this point. The start of the trip takes us to Duluth. We had planned to leave in the morning and arrive around noon. While packing up the car Scott noticed our car battery was dead.  I asked our neighbor for a jump and we were soon back on track. We never left our dome light on in 4 years at the condo, but somehow have managed to do this twice since moving. I guess a dark garage will do that.  Once that was fixed we had to figure out the puzzle of fitting 3 bikes onto our bike rack. By the time we were off we were getting hungry. Scott has always wanted to try Tobie's to see what the hype was all about.  After
