Mother’s Day Feast

Mother’s Day Feast


Posted on May 14, 2007

For Christmas this year, my good friend gave me a subscription to Cooking Light.  It’s such a great magazine and I look forward to getting it each month.  When it came time to plan the dinner for Mother’s Day and also my birthday, I looked to Cooking Light to plan the menu.  My sister and I worked together to pull this great meal off.  Our meal consisted of the following: Black Bean and Avocado...

Birthday

Today I am 33 years old.  I thought I would have something super profound to say about the meaning of  life  and all of that good stuff, but nothing comes to mind.  What is always on my mind is the great life that I have with my husband and two cats.  I’m also blessed with good friends and family near by.   I’ve created the life that I’ve always wanted.  It makes it hard to...

Last night I saw Nickel Creek perform at the Roseland.  (I think my phone camera pictures are getting worse and worse.)  This was the second time I’ve seen them in concert.  They put on a great show with lots of banter.  They really seem to love Portland.   I got to hear some of my favorite songs and even got to hear amazing covers of Radiohead and Beatles songs. Today on the eve of my 33rd...

My birthday celebration started a bit early this year.  My mother-in-law will be on a cruise in Hawaii on my actual birthday (I’m just a little jealous), so Saturday we had a day of fun.  We had coffee at the best coffee shop in town, saw a 3-D movie (my mother-in-law’s first), had sushi (another first for her) and then finished off the day with a great dessert.  I had  so much fun! Part of my birthday...

Yesterday ended my 11 day stint of cat sitting for my friend who is in Europe.  I’ve cat sat for Quincy (above)  and Flaco before, so it was really nice to see them again and spend time with them.  Both cats are just so lovable and adorable.  Each day the first thing I would when I got to my friend’s house was pick each cat up to give him some loving.  I think at first they didn’t really like...

Posted on Apr 24, 2007

Every year for about two weeks, our house is the prettiest on the block.  That’s due to this beautiful flowering tree.  The blooms are here for such a short time.   We are the only house on the block with a flowering tree.  The neighbors all have these huge gorgeous trees that provides lots of good shade in the summer.  At the end of the two weeks when all of the flowers are gone, this tree turns...
