I’ve been gone a few days pulling my website over to WordPress. I like all the features here a little better than my Iweb. Hope those of you who have been reading will keep checking in — I’ll have some new things up and going soon. Take care!

Banh-Mi (Beware the Fish Sauce)

  Banh-Mi is a Vietnamese sandwich.    Around these parts, a Banh-Mi will usually set you back about $2. My friend Duy introduced me to his native country’s Banh-Mi several years ago. My relationship with the Banh-Mi started off very rocky when Duy forgot to mention that these sandwiches often feature raw jalapenos.  Once I … [Read more…]

Catch of the Day

Woke up this morning a little late, but we were on the lake by 8:30 or so. It wasn’t hot, but it was humid! Today was a strange day of fishing because I saw hundreds of fish, but they were not interested in biting our hooks. I can’t really say I blame them. The picture … [Read more…]

Shrimp Boilin’

  We struggle to find meals we can cook at home that are easy and don’t require us to spend our time after work doing dishes. In fact, I hate doing dishes so badly that I have been known to cry. I’ve also been known to throw away a few dishes when the thought of … [Read more…]

Aunt Gail

  Tonight I’m going to dinner with my Aunt Gail. She is in town for a school conference and I always love to see her. After I talked to her today I thought about this picture that I have saved on my computer. That’s Aunt G in the center holding the trophies with an expression … [Read more…]

First Blog

  Here we go! This is my first blog entry. Today, I went to lunch with my friend Angee. She got to have “grown up” lunch — meaning that she was out of the house without her two beautiful kiddos Isaac and Maxwell.    We went to eat at San Marcos and discussed Keely’s birthday … [Read more…]
