Chile Rellenos

Dad's garden yielded quite a bounty of peppers this year so with the impending frost there were many that needed to be cooked or frozen so I tried my hand at chile rellenos. They were great if I do say so myself. Next time I won't pour store-bought canned salsa on them though. I was just toooo lazy to make the real thing. ;)

It really doesn't get any cuter.

Annual "weenie roast"

We still call in the Weenie Roast even though we haven't roasted weenies the traditional way in years. Particularly not with the burn ban fad that's been popular the past few years. What's up with that? It didn't rain today! Nobody light a match!

Anyhoo...despite mucho planning DRAMA we all had a good time. At least I did and that's all that matters, right? ;)

The newlywedsDave all tuckered out as usual.

Bible Pictionary. We kicked those young whippersnappers' butts. They were probably afraid if we lost we'd beat them with our walkers.
Ok Miss "I'm the only church member not on the board" It's going up soon!
The chocolate fountain once it started working. Unfortunately, we'd eaten so much chocolate out of it already that that flow wasn't consistent. Oh well. It was tasty!
Sandi eating off a chair until we convinced her a table would be better and actually not that much trouble to set up.
Dad manually making the chocolate swamp kinda work.

Fireproof Ketchup

Sorta. We went to see Fireproof and then to eat at Ketchup!It's a Bridge Street restaurant that opened recently. There's one here and in L.A. so I guess Huntsville is moving up in the world! Some days were happy about that (like when we get to eat at a trendy restaurant) and sometime we're ticked off (like when you go all day without hearing a Southern accent)
Six different kinds of Ketchup. I liked them all. Dave's favorite was the chipotle.

"We Need To Get Out More" or "The Night the Lights Went Out in Toney" or "Holy Crap, Jenn Sounds Worse Than a Sticks 'n Stuff Commercial"

It occurred to me last night (as I was trying to sleep of course) that between the pictures and video this post contained way too much location-specific information. Here's our house stalkers and serial killers! Key's under the mat!

If you didn't get to see the pics or video (and actually give a rip for that matter) just email me. You'll even be spared the ranting and raving so it's a win-win!

Coffee talk

Joy and I went out for coffee at her new favorite place, Stearns. The coffee was stronger and fresher than Starbucks and there's just something special about drinking from a real mug with the company logo swirled into the froth!

My logo didn't turn out right, but the spiral is still pretty. Thanks Joy! Had a great time.
