This time of year I have this thing where I want to take everyone food but I SERIOUSLY don’t have time to make long-winded appetizers. I love bite-sized food like this because you don’t need fancy utensils or even napkins if you’re careful, and folks can eat 57 and not feel guilty because they’re bite sized. For rizzle.
Um hi. Is it raining where you are? It’s either been raining or cloudy for three days here and I’m LOSING MY MIND. Like, I have a ton to do inside but it’s gross so I don’t want to clean but also I can’t go outside and also since it’s raining I’ve just stopped washing my hair altogether because what’s the point? Also this is me and Jay last Thursday at Thanksgiving.
Hold me. Christmas is for sunshine, if you live in SC. Continue reading »
People go on and on and on about roast chicken and while I get it, I just kind of …. didn’t get it. Vague enough for ya?
Jay had been wanting to roast a whole chicken for, say, ever, so for his birthday that’s exactly what we did! It turned out PERFECTLY, was incredibly simple, and we can’t wait to make it again. This is a simple version with nothing fancy, and that’s what was so great about it! It seems as if you don’t overcook the chicken then you’ll be golden. The bird was crispy on the outside, MOIST on the inside (let it go), and the veggies roasted in chicken drippings were just…..ahhhh yes.
We actually have very few – we had 3 celebrations and somehow ended up with no extra food? We don’t exaaaactly need it, but still. Sigh. Everyone hates us. We do have an epic amount of this mac and cheese, made without chicken, but we aren’t terribly upset about that! Continue reading »
Jay turned 33 last week! He also had the month of all months that included ALL THE FUN STUFF. Here’s what he’s been up to, while I was doing his laundry. ~L
I turned 33 this year. It’s not the most special of ages, but it was a memorable evening. Lindsay went out of her way to make it a very special, surprising, and eventful evening. I had 15 friends hiding in my bedroom when I returned home from work, and my first memory of 33 was almost me crapping my pants in fright. But the evening quickly turned into a drunken, musical, conga line, karaoke festival of fun that is appropriate for a 33 year old man’s birthday party. Lindsay made an all Asian appetizers spread with chicken lettuce wraps, ginger meatballs, and pot stickers. I was a happy man. I no longer consider myself a young man, but I had a brilliant flashback to my youth on my birthday. After a few rounds of brews and a bourbon drink, my best bud Adam started playing our keyboard. Soon everyone was gathered around singing and rocking out. Adam went into Bruce Hornsby’s “The Way It Is” and I went directly into Tupac’s version. I still know 84% of the lyrics and really shocked some friends with rap game ability. I’m like the suburban version of Eminem, that loves Bruce Hornsby and white wine. Was it sad? Yes. Was it also fun? Absolutely. I still got street cred. Continue reading »
4 days away from you felt like a lifetime, bee tee dubs. Did you have a good Thanksgiving? We had 3! THREE THANKSGIVINGS, Y’ALL. They were all different and fun and delicious, so you should just mainly be jealous.
Also now I’m full.
It’s Monday. It’s also Monday before a holiday and doesn’t that just…mean things? We’re excited it’s a short week, we’re still tired from the weekend, we’re nervous that the short work week means that next Monday will totally blow, and then there’s…..the holiday. A great holiday, full of family and food and fun.
For most people, right? I’ve heard multiple people at our yoga studio recently say how much they need MORE CLASSES THANKSGIVING WEEKEND because omg family.
