One Last Saturday as a Family of Three

I'm past my due date and still no baby.

So we might as well try to have some fun.
After sitting around debating what to do we decided to walk to the library. I figure the baby is not going to come if I keep sitting around. Meadow gets "tired" on walks recently, so with it being a little warmer, we asked if she wanted to ride her bike. 

For the most part she rode and rode.


Except for one small slip on some ice she made it the whole way.

Once we got to Minnehaha Creek we were just about to the library.

Once at Washburn Library we played for a while with the light table and then Meadow played in the make-believe store. We also picked a few more movies. We're working our way through all the Pixar and Disney movies. She also got a heavy pile of books.

Afterwards we walked over to Patisserie 46 to check it out. My flourless chocolate raspberry cake was really good.

Meadow and I both got linzer heart cookies and shared a chocolate chip cookie. They all fit the bill.

And we shared an Arnie Palmer.

When we got home I made a mac and cheese pizza out of our leftover pizza dough and mac and cheese. It was quite good, but super rich. 

That night we watched the Olympics and the gals went to bed early.

I went to the last Hollow Boys show all by lonesome when everyone went to bed. Two of my old friends are in the band (they played our wedding) and I couldn't miss it. Too bad Brooke couldn't make it out too.

Today also happened to be the 12th Anniversary of when Scott and I met. A date would have been nice.

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

How Can We Make Life Less Boring?

This weeks bread is Ciabatta. Scott had made this a few summers ago so we thought we'd try a variation and add caramelized onions and herbs. Nothing like cutting onions in the morning.  I'm really hoping Peter Reinhardt will find our blog and see that I'm making everything in his book and want to do a movie with me. It'll be called Brooke and Peter. I'm also gunning for a movie once Mark Bittman passes away. OK, I'm not. That' just weird. We did make oatmeal raisin pancakes from Bittman's Food Matters cookbook. Oatmeal pancakes? Yes please! These turned out much better than the oatmeal raisin waffles we had a few months back. I tackled this darn puzzle again.  Peanut (our cat if you didn't already know) loves whining. Mostly he wants to go outside or in the basement. This time I gave in and he had some kind of deja vu to his alleycat youth. Scott played on his phone while Peanut played outside. We both t

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H
