Thanksgiving Weekend 2011

Our Thanksgiving meal was a hit! Our 24 lb turkey cooked in under three hours, so we turned the oven down to 200 and kept it warm. Surprisingly we didn't dry it out.

As I was working on my indoor garden,  I bent down to get some rocks.  Suddenly I heard a loud RIPPPPPP.  My butt felt cooler and I realized that I had ripped my favorite jeans.  So, so sad.

Weekend in NYC (11/4/11)

What a crazy weekend.  We finally had another wine tasting night.  We tasted Sonoma/ Napa Valley Cabernet's.  I am very partial to California Cabs, so I really enjoyed this wine tasting. 

Saturday we woke up and decided to finally build the closet for the office.  The office is finally started to look organized.

Since the ING Marathon goes through Greenpoint, we decided to spend the day in our neighborhood.

Our friend Chris was making Hard Cider, so we baked a flan and went over to help (mostly to drink and eat).

This guy was driving around Greenpoint in a meter maid car.  I bet his gas bill is low :)

Weekend in NY - 10/21/11

We had a very relaxing weekend.  On Friday night, we had friends over for the most delicious dinner.  We had dry aged steak, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach.  (I didn't take a picture--fail)

Bisquick Biscuits

We found pan cubano at Western Beef.  
It's almost right, but I can't figure out why it's not perfect. 
It was close enough, so we made Cuban Sandwiches for lunch.
