Thanksgiving in Poulsbo

I was not there, but the picture looks fun. One question: was Lydia there? Just checking.

I love the view out the window. Gorgeous greenery!!


Some people's spiritual gift is carving turkeys.

another pic

This awesome picture was stolen from Monica's FlickR. Thanks Mon ;)

L-R: Em, Rachel, Ari. This is right after we finished our rap, OK, Rachel's rap, to which Ari and I beatboxed. The whole idea of Rachel rapping is so ridiculous it's awesome. She is pretty much one of the whitest people around, both in skin color and personality. :)

Anyway, it was so fun. More to come.

creamy wine sauce pasta

I found this fancy meatless yet delicious pasta recipe. I altered it to be even better and here it is:

2 T. olive oil
3 cups sliced mushrooms (buy them whole and then slice yourself, they keep better this way) OR sliced zucchini... OR both?
2 cloves garlic, minced
fresh chopped rosemary
Salt & Pepper
1/3 c. heavy cream
1/3 c. white wine
1/3 c. chicken broth

In a large skillet over medium, heat olive oil. Add mushrooms, minced garlic and rosemary. Season with S&P. Cook for a few minutes. Add cream, wine and broth. Bring sauce to a boil; reduce heat, stirring until sauce is reduced to about 1 1/2 cups.

Serve over hot cooked pasta; top with parmesan cheese.

I did not make this up.

Still sugar-free... mostly

So I have been doing pretty good except someone made me these cookies!!! Dang it... they are the BEST! After I ate them I felt slightly ill though. In case anyone cares... I am still not eating many sweets, and feeling better. And when I do eat sweets, I feel yucky.

Pictures of Susan's wedding to come... it was great fun. Chattanooga is beautiful this time of year, all those leaves... it was great to see everyone too. I saw Marie, Peter, Susan, Megan Roderick, Monica, Larry & Nancy, all of Susan's family, Christian & Glenn, the Steeles, Dale Lee and the Williams fam at Cornerstone... it was great.
