food of sorts.... again

So our life really isn't all about food... even though I seem to mention it on almost every post. But I guess we do spend a lot of time eating every day.... but we also spend a lot of time sleeping and I never post about that.

I made a HUGE sacrifice and compromised my principles for Henry. This, my friends, is true love:
Yes, yes. I made vanilla cupcakes. More importantly, I made something non-chocolate. But the biggest surprise is that... I actually liked them.... Don't get too excited (you chocolate haters) because my heart still belongs to the cocoa bean.

As I mentioned in the previous post we made pizza! Here is a picture to prove it to you (artichoke hearts, red peppers, and spinach = yum):

And last but not least.... another food related picture.... this is me as a human burrito. After complaining about being cold one too many times Henry decided to take matters into his own hands and make me warm up. Being from Pueblo, CO he knows quite a bit about making burritos. So he put his skills to work and made one for me. It was quite warm :)

fun in a box

So one of our favorite games is "Bang!" It's great fun. We just finished a three-game run with friends and there were many laughs. I lost every time. Sometimes rather badly.

We ALSO made delicious homemade pizza. I'm so domestic now that I have a pizza stone. And when I wear my "Flirty Apron" the domesticity just overloads the system. It's so contagious that even Henry starts feeling domestic (see post below of Henry in an apron to get the full effect).

But seriously, the pizza was ridiculously good so comment if you want our dough recipe. If you're good maybe I'll share it with you.

We spent Christmas this year with Henry's family in good ol' Pueblo, CO. It was fun to have the WHOLE family there (10 adults, and 9 kids under the age of 10) under ONE roof together. Here are some of the events that transpired that weekend:

1. Cat vomit. On Henry's socks.
2. Almost dying on I-25 between Cheyenne and Ft. Collins when someone decided that plowing snow was for dummies.
3. Matching aprons for all the girls in the family (Henry felt left out so we let him try one on).
4. Watching Blu-Ray for the first time. "The Dark Knight" was a good choice.
5. Getting a talking gnome named Henry... he provided HOURS of entertainment for the nieces and nephews (you can record your own voice and it plays it back at a higher frequency... like a "gnome")
6. Singing Taylor Swift songs with nieces and having them stuck in my head for days.
7. Playing LOTS of bored games... I mean board games (I'm so clever). Our favorite was Monopoly Deal which was amazingly fun and a lot faster than the original Monopoly.
8. Reading books by Michael Chabon, one of our favorite authors.
9. Fixing computers. Henry is one handy dandy dork.
10. Most importantly, not working or going to school.

So, our lives aren't really that interesting... but thanks for making it through that list. Come over sometime and I'll make your some Indian naan bread on my new pizza stone!
