Weekend Update::January 26 – February 2, 2014

Nearly missed my flight home.
Beautiful Portland.
Sad, sad news about Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Happy, happy days when the Seahawks played an amazing game and won the Superbowl.

Weekend Update::January 20 – 26, 2014

Sundance was a lot of fun. Celebrity sightings and little chats were a dime a dozen, not quite as exciting as it was when I was younger, but nice to talk to everyone there for the festival all the same.

Weekend Update::January 6 – 12, 2014

Another slow and sunny week in the desert. Dinners with family & cowboys, Zumba and a beautiful hike up to Vulture Peak.

Weekend Update::December 30, 2013 – January 5, 2014

Even though I had an entire extra day in this week, it was one of the most uneventful weeks of the past 2 years.

On the 30th I hopped on a plane in Hong Kong bound for America.

Green Goddess Chicken Salad

We got together last night with neighbors and had a little last minute pot-luck dinner (basically, “Hey, let’s share our dinners and make it a party!”) We found this recipe in a little Food & Wine booklet and it was a big hit and I plan to put it into our regular rotation! The recipe transcribed is the directly from the recipe book, though we made a few modifications based on what we had, I want to give the original recipe a try before making the modifications part of the permanent record.

Citrus Veggie Kabobs with Key Lime Chimichurri

I came home to the most delicious & feel good dinner, so I wanted to make sure to get the recipe written down right away so we can replicate this awesomeness over and over again!

There’s no place like home.

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. -Maya Angelou
