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.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry. I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
