Weekend Review

It was a long and busy, but relaxing weekend. Thursday night, the Check Engine Light came on in my new (used) car. The Check Engine Light and emissions issues that were causing it is actually why I replaced my old car… so that was not a good sign. In fact, I was so worried/mad, that … Continue reading

December Goals

The holiday season is upon us! And now for some goals to get us started: Yoga 1-2 times per week. Forever goal. Knit at least 3 more hats to give to family this Christmas. Plus the 2 that MM’s mom requested. That’s a lot but will give me 8 for family, which is hopefully a good … Continue reading

Pizza Recipe

I made three of these and put them directly in the freezer and then made 1 for dinner the other day. Directions are for 1 pizza. Each pizza serves 2-3. The pizzas are pretty thin and therefore not very filling. Ingredients Pizza Dough mix (check package for additional ingredients – mine just needed warm water) … Continue reading

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

As I told in the Pie Crust recipe, Sara and I decided to make a pumpkin pie from a real pumpkin. This recipe makes enough filling for about 2 – 9″ pies or 1 – 10″ pie plus a baby pie (which is what we had.) Adapted from this recipe. If you don’t want to … Continue reading

Weekend Review

Long weekends are lovely. Friday was my last day of a class at work, and we only had to go in for 2 hours… to take a quiz and do a final lesson on ethics. MM had the day off so he went to the grocery store while I was in class to get the … Continue reading

Pie Crust Recipe

Sara and I made a pumpkin pie completely from scratch last weekend. And of course, the base of the pie is the crust. So I will be posting that recipe first, then the pie filling, then roasting the pumpkin seeds. We pretty much went back and forth between the crust and pie steps, as each … Continue reading

Weekend Review

Even though this past weekend was short, it was a good one! On Saturday, Sara, MM, and I went out to Shenandoah NP for a hike. We knew it would be cold so we all made sure to bring hats and gloves. As we were pulling up to the fee station, we saw a very … Continue reading

Technology Free Success

Technology Free Weekend was a success! Friday night consisted of making delicious sausage and potato chowder and some reading. Saturday consisted of a nice brisk 9 mile hike, coming home for dinner, napping, and then going to the 9pm showing of Expendables 2. I think this one was even better than the first Expendables. Sunday … Continue reading

Technology Free Weekend

Five of the past 6 weekends in my life have been mostly devoted to MM’s car activities. The last few weekends that we’ve actually stayed at my place have had large chunks of time that involved us sitting on opposite ends of the couch, each playing our own video games. (Adding the second TV to … Continue reading
