So much cooking, so little time

by Rebekahcooked up on November 20, 2011

The past two weeks have been completely nuts for us… awesomely nuts. After my parents were here last weekend, Dave and I both had busy weeks at work and had much to prepare for this weekend because it was our good friend Aggie’s baby shower (post to come). We also had the privilege of watching my little brother race in the NAIA National Championship Cross Country race in Vancouver. He ran an 8k in 26:56 – a personal best!

We also are working on more projects:

  • We just invested in a really nice 7.5-foot artificial Christmas tree! It’s going up soon. I can’t wait (and you know what, Thanksgiving at isn’t at my house, so if it goes up before Thanksgiving, I’m not taking complaints! 🙂 )
  • Dave is making a pie, and so are all of his friends from work. Tomorrow is their annual pie contest! Of course that will be a post, but after the contest. It’s a secret!
  • Annnnd of course, Thanksgiving is this week!

We will be working hard to make food for the blog but also have lots of events, so I’m not really sure how the next few days will go.

Homemade Brown Sugar Pop Tarts

Everyone has a few guilty pleasures when it comes to food. Cheese, wine, heavy carbs and such. I don’t really feel guilty about eating a rich dessert if I (or someone I know) worked hard making it. But what I do feel guilty about is eating foods that are engineered to have enormous shelf lives […]
