Hi friends and anyone else who decided to take a look at this now neglected blog. I can't seem to keep up with this thing lately. Probably because the day to day responsibilities of motherhood and life in general has finally caught up with the newness and excitement of the move. I am doing laundry a million times a day and my precious son is a freak about the clothes he wears. He is as picky as a 14 year old girl about what he eats so I am constantly cooking, and he prefers to make messes in secret, so by the time I catch him he is knee deep in ketchup and sitting in the fridge. It's a little thing I like to call "job security." Anyway it's life as usual around here. Our Canadians came over the other night to swim and BBQ, I must say it was wonderful getting to entertain again. This was the first time in months that I was able to cook for people I know, and anyone who knows me knows I love to cook for people I know. Sometimes I like to cook for strangers but they tend to look at you funny when you ask them to elaborate on why they liked what they ate and to describe the experience in detail. A simple "Que rico" just won't do for me. I love when people talk about a dinner I made years after I made it.( Danny Joe you know what's up, lasagna circa 2008 ring a bell?) Anyway, dinner was delicious we had farm fresh roasted potatoes, green beans with red onion,brown butter and garlic with T-bones, and yes grass fed beef can taste delicious. Also, we finished dinner with a pecan pie, compliments of the Dr. and her Mr. It was supposed to serve 10 people and had 220 k/cal a slice, However, we didn't find this out until after we divided the pie into fours...you do the math. To my lovely husband who decided to read the nutrition label. Thank you Donny for your appreciation of nutritional knowledge. You suck. Charlie and his little buddy were needless to say tuckered out after dinner and swimming. So we turned on the T.V and continued with our little dinner party. About 15 minutes later we realized that one of the boys had turned the T.V onto a Latin soap opera and were clearly immersed in the story line. Enough said other than I have not laughed that hard in a long time. For anyone who has yet to experience the Latin television experience I implore you to do so.
Another thing I have to say is I have just graduated to a new level of cool in my mind. Here's why... I personally released at least 25 baby lora sea turtles into the pacific ocean this past week. O heavens those little things were adorable and amazing. They venture out to sea, only to return a mere 30 years later in efforts to lay their eggs. I don't know why but I am mesmerized by the whole process.
Here are some pictures.
