November 29, 2009: Mitsuwa

The closest we can come to being in Tokyo while we're here in the states is to go to Mitsuwa in Edgewater, NJ. So we took Adina and Steph there today.

November 25, 2009: Guests are Coming

Adina and Steph are coming to spend the night on Thanksgiving, so we're cleaning the house! I love getting it all clean (although it's never ALL clean, ya know?).

November 24, 2009: Toe Checkup

I went in today for my (hopefully) final check up for my toe. I've spent way too much time in this office (this is my 5th visit). But I'm getting my toes all fixed up, so it's ok.

November 22, 2009: Sweet Endings

Ending, beginning, in the middle. Doesn't matter, I could eat this frozen yogurt any time! I get it simple, without toppings because I like the yogurt so much.

November 21, 2009: Lobster Bisque Awesomeness

We went to lunch/dinner with Deb and Bud today at Brasserie 73 in Skippack. The food was fantastic. I especially liked this lobster bisque with puff pastry top.

November 19, 2009: Chili Poached Egg

Tonight we made some poached eggs and put them over chili that we had made earlier and then put that all on an english muffin. It was divine.

November 18, 2009: Another Golder Thanksgiving

Every year, we have a big potluck Thanksgiving celebration at my office. We get turkey, ham, and gravy catered, and then everyone brings a dish to share.

November 17, 2009: Bloody Sock

I had minor surgery done on my toe today. When I got home, I turned around and saw red on the floor! I bled through my sock and bandages. Eewww.

November 14, 2009: A.C. Moore Opens

A new A.C. Moore store opened in Willow Grove. This is the best thing ever because they have such better stuff than Michael's! I see us going here a lot!

November 13, 2009: Caulking the Tub

I worked on putting new caulk around the tub today - something I've been avoiding forever. Unfortunately, I got clear caulk, so it looks kind of funny. Oops.

November 12, 2009: Messy Bag

My small bag that I use to carry my essentials is quite full. It's a bit of a mess because I just throw everything in the one main compartment. The bag was $5 in Japan.

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

November 11, 2009: Bug Bite or Something

I took this photo of some kind of bug bite on my arm but I have no idea what it was from. Maybe it was something else entirely. I guess we'll never know. Strange.

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

November 10, 2009: Frozen Oatmeal

Once a week or so I make a batch of 6 servings of steel cut oatmeal and I freeze in in a muffin tray. It's awesome because then I can have breakfast at work all week.

November 1, 2009: Leftover Candy

There was a lot of candy left after Halloween, I think because it starrted pouring so everyone went home. We got to watch the Phillies game as a result!

Saturday, October 31, 2009

October 31, 2009: Halloween Napping

My parents came over for Halloween to help give out candy and to watch the Phillies game. Since the game was delayed it went on late! Mom and Chad fell asleep. Cute.

October 30, 2009: Eggs en Coquette

Chad saw this recipe online and decided to make it. It's eggs and cheese baked in a ramekin with some salt and pepper. You eat it with toast. It was tasty.

Deb and Bud gave me my birthday presents tonight and it was great! I got three CDs I've been wanting, including the most recent Portishead!!

October 25, 2009: Time to Rake Leaves

Bud took care of their leaves today, but I didn't. So there was this clear line marking the property boundary. I thought it was pretty funny.

The Phillies are in the World Series again and everyone has Phillies Phever. Daryl's bakery in Glenside was selling these cute Phillies cupcakes.

October 6, 2009: Making Vegetable Stock

I recently discovered how easy and satisfying it is to make my own vegetable stock. I was inspired by I now need to buy a real stock pot.

I found these acorns while I was out in Ohio and I thought they looked fun, so brought a few home so I could photograph them.
