I was in Indianapolis, Indiana over Thanksgiving this year. On a tour of the city, we went to City Center where they erect a “Christmas Tree.” Well, I use that loosely. It’s actually strung lights on the permanent Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument in Downtown. It’s been called the worlds largest Christmas tree — I guess […]

The meal was a fabulous 7 course prefix with Kobe beef and lobster as the main entree. We started eating at 10:30 pm and finished with dessert and […]

For Halloween this year we went to a haunted house and made sugar cookies. First I’ll tell you about the sugar cookies. Making sugar cookies was originally Jay’s idea — and we had this fantasy in our heads. Mixing up the dough, rolling, cutting, and baking was a snap. Hilariously, icing the cookies was tedious and unfulfilling. For some […]

Where to begin? Nothing really interesting has been going on, hence the quiet blog. But now, I have Christmas to blog about. If you remember, I found out that my Christmas present from my mom this year was a trip to Germany for 7 days. On December 23, I went to work until 2pm. Once […]

So Halloween has come and gone, just as it has every year before. This year I had a Practically Perfect Pumpkin Party. I had eight people (one in spirit) jam into my apartment for dinner and jack-o-lantern carving. The dinner was completely pumpkin oriented. We had pumpkin ale, pumpkin hummus and pita chips, pumpkin lasagna, […]
