fall fun.

Sunday evening we had the perfect fall evening with my sister and brother in law. We carved pumpkins, drank apple cider and ate soup! Can you guess which pumpkin is mine, Derek’s, Stan’s and Ale’s?

This is SO gross to me. I hope you aren’t eating at any of the RED flagged places!

my first rodeo.

This weekend, we went to the mobile food rodeo and it was pretty awesome!  15 of Seattle’s favorite food trucks (plus a few from Portland), all grouped together in one location! YUMMY and CONVENIENT? Yes please! I do have to say that the event was poorly organized, but once I got past that part and focused on the food, I had a great time! I think BigFood wins my vote for the best truck (although we only tried 3 or 4 trucks…we got full). Rumor has it that West Seattle will be hosting a similar event in a few weeks – the mobile chowdown. I’m looking forward to trying Marination and Skillet (Marination wasn’t at the rodeo and Skillet ran out of food 2 hours into the event – really lame). Anyways, if you’re curious about the mobile food truck craze, you should check it out!

not bakers.

So, Derek and I have been craving cookies. Last weekend, he made some. Nothing fancy, just chocolate chip cookies. We got the recipe from one of our cookbooks. They tasted so bad, we threw them all away. Seriously.

So, yesterday I tried to redeem us. I just used the recipe from the back of the chocolate chip bag. They don’t taste horrible, but they are the ugliest cookies I’ve ever seen in my life. I almost can’t eat them because they are so visually unappealing.

Why can’t we make a decent batch of cookies?!?!? This is not rocket science, it’s not like we’re trying to bake a chocolate souffle or anything tricky. And it’s not like we’re new to the kitchen. I guess we’re just not bakers.

guilty pleasure.

Tonight I made Mac & Cheese. Out of a box. With a side of sweet pickles.

For some reason it just makes me laugh.

season 2 finale – part 2.

As promised, here are the photos of our last Wednesday Night Dinner for the season.  I don’t think our dinner was quite as photogenic as it has been in the past, but it tasted great. The real star of this dinner was Derek’s brisket…unbelievable. I wish you could taste it because the photos just aren’t doing it justice. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

season 2 finale – part 1.

I love watching Top Chef, but sometimes I feel cheated when I can’t taste the amazing food. It’s such a tease. You know the feeling? Well if you don’t, you’re about to! Last night was part 1 of our Wednesday Night Dinner Season Finale. This was the meal that Derek and I chose and we were not disappointed. It was better than we both remembered! See for yourself. Thanks Stacy and Dre for a wonderful dinner and great season!
