Snow Days

We've had snow in Seattle this week! Kevin and I went out playing in it over the weekend.

School has been canceled, so I am sitting in my pajamas watching British films and gazing out at the snow globe that has become of the Waterfront.

Wine and Cheese

Waseem threw a wine and cheese party the other day. It was very swanky, and we dressed up.

Cooking Butternut Squash Soup

I cooked a turkey for the first time in my life during Christmas and had the moderate intelligence to let the carcass and meats simmer for a time in some water, thus creating turkey stock. That turkey stock sat for awhile in my fridge, slowly congealing into a delicious fatty meat jell-O. I decided it was the time for action, and found a recipe for butternut squash soup, which I have never made before.

It was quite inexpensive to buy all of the ingredients since I already had the stock, and it turned out OK. Mostly it tastes like turkey.

Post-Christmas Cleansing

When my family left for Los Angeles and Virginia on the first of the New Year, Kevin and I got busy cleaning. We cleaned just about everything that disinfectant can improve, as a matter of fact.
