A Note

As you can tell I finally got my butt in gear and published some (alright, quite a few) new posts. I think there are 4-5 of them so just keep scrowling down till you see something you recognize! I'll see lots of you soon for Els's wedding and Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving

I cooked a WHOLE Thanksgiving Dinner this year... Here are some pics and I hope you all had wonderful Thanksgivings wherever you are! Miss you all!

Hakan's Shopping Visit

My good friend, Hakan, from grad school in TX, came for a weekend visit. We spent lots of time in the Mall of America but watched some movies and walked around one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes. It was a wonderful weekend and I'll miss him!

SNOW!!!! Well sort of...

OK, so as most of you know I've been dreaming not only of a white Christmas, but of white EVERYDAY. Sadly, I've been sorely disapointed up to this point but there was a hint of snow- here are the first pics (hopefully there are many more to come).

Alessia, the Italian Chef...

Alessia baked pasta for us on one of the cold November nights! I brought apple pie for dessert. We have to introduce the internationals to as many American foods as possible and what's more American than apple pie? Yummy!

Halloween Burgers

Instead of stuffing ourselves with candy on Halloween, we stuffed ourselves with great burgers from Ike's in downtown Minneapolis!
