Hello! Both Kelly and David (aka “The Boyfriend”) here to share with you drool-worthy pictures of our latest culinary adventures from Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (hence the title. Familiar quote, anyone?).

MONDAY

After the hay ride Aunt Katie let us take a few of the leftover pumpkins to dispose of as we chose. Naturally we chose to roast the seeds (David) and make pumpkin puree (Kelly)! (Hey, Kelly promised to try her Pumpkin Apple Spice muffins with homemade puree sometimes, didn’t she?)

But there was still dinner to consider…

[car ride home after running errands]

David: (oh-so casually) So…do you want to be in charge of dinner tonight?
Kelly: (immediately) No.
David: …
Kelly: (reluctantly) I mean, I guess I can… If I have to…
David: (immediately) Good. Cause I don’t want to.
Kelly: But… whadda we got? (A rare reversal of roles!!!)

The Meal: Asparagus mushroom quiche with cheddar and green onions, in a potato crust.
The Chef: Kelly

TUESDAY

The Meal: Slow-cooked porkchops, carrots, sauerkraut, and apples with homemade applesauce (and a side of leftover cheesy garlic mashed potatoes. Because they are that delicious).
The Chef: David
The Sous-Chef: Kelly (she made the applesauce)

(Kelly’s plate is in the upper left. Unfortunately she discovered that sauerkraut wasn’t her “thing.” Otherwise, another hit!)

In keeping with the jumbled quote serving as the title for tonight’s post, here’s a photo from last Friday. We attended a dinner party at a relative’s house, and Kelly befriended an otherwise stranger-hating cat, Quimby, while battling the last of her week-long cold.

About Kelly

Kelly grew up in the suburbs of Boston, mere minutes from the Atlantic ocean. For several years she lived in New York City where she found the two loves of her life: Publishing and David. She moved to the Twin Cities for her husband, and eventually managed to pick up the pieces of her career as well. Although she’s learning to appreciate lakes, she misses the ocean ferociously.
