I've been Crafty in the Kitchen

I think I better start knitting again though. Cooking helps distract from the fact that I'll be jobless, but not as much as knitting. I'm going to be making a baby something for my new Cousin-in-law's soon to be born boychild.

Last night I made roasted veggies with Herbs de Provence' - Fancy Schmancy? Not so much, but I can not deny my love for thyme.
parsnips, zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, yellow pepper, garlic, red onion, carrots, sweet potatoes - over quinoa with some nutritional yeast - oh man, I could have this every day.
Also, for the 1st time I took a crack at making veggie broth. I used all the scraps from dinner and some additional veggies and hebs (thyme of course) and now I have a whole pitcher of this fantastic smelling/tasting veggie broth! If only I had the patience to make seitan. Maybe I will anyway.

All I know is it's Friday and I can not wait to get out of here. There's so much that needs to be done at the house and we are going to KAREOKE tonight!! Jocelyn's boyfriend is having a b-day soiree there and I wanna sing!

ONE MONTH!! Married a month ago Today!!

Yes, it has been terrific. I FReAkIn love him.

Cooked together, had vegan Thanksgiving
Watched alot of movies, even though we had plans all the time, btw, Dogville is a difficult watch
Existenz is what makes Cronenberg great
Got some goodies for ourselves at LUSH, and I am hooked
Still havent killed the petunias that were hanging from the arch, and still haven't sent thank you's
The cats don't notice the difference that a month has passed
I got my new laptop
Tacky, tacky, and cracky seem to have felt ostracised at the reception, well what do you expect when you skip the ceremony and show up in crappy tees and jeans with a coked out guest that wasnt invited?
Vera Wang Champagne Glasses
The neighbors raided our avocado tree when we were away visiting my grandma who apparently thinks her latest roomate's name should be squeeky, and squeeky's face is as ugly as a fart...yeah getting old must be rough.
Still laid off, yet looking forward to a break and distance from the college and DOE.
My parents seem to be happy
Gord is doing well
Kathy's baby is adorable
Erin's baby doesnt like Santa
Coral is 3 and still crushes and has tea parties with Uncle T
Made basil cilantro pesto with Jerusalem Artichoke Pasta last night and it ROCKED
I AM HAPPY....Have a happy day too!
