After Trailing

After 2 hours on the trail I imagine everyone was hungry

So I helped Lynne cut up vegetables

She had already made the lasagana (veggie and non veggie) the night before and was heating it up.

She make bechamel sauce instead of using ricotta cheese mixture and it made a BIG difference

While they waited for food

Chips and dip

This guy was a dream

He made spicy cucmbers (cucumber chow) the way I liked!!!

This was fun

I had the best time...

Food is gooooooooood

Nice but...

I went to this place to hang out ..nice music and atmosphere but
The food sucked.

Oh It really really sucked. All their accompaniments were this gross pasta and green beans, which I didn't know till I got the meal.

I couldn't believe how bad it sucked.

The really bad thing was that I think the people cooking and serving the food think that it's good.
This kind of stuff makes me sad

Even dessert was bad.

How do you screw up tiramisu? :(

I felt a little sad (and wished I had my Girl Scout Cookies)

But I had a good time and laughed a lot, so....

I caved

"What had happened was...."
I went to the store and the girl scout lady and her daughter were there and they were really sweet

They knew how I used to buy thin mints and freeze till the next girl scout cookie cycle was near!
SO I got these new ones and NO thin mints.
These are so good though....

Wish I was there

The only thing I think when I see these pics is:
"Ok I really wished that I was there for this"

I love the cookware and the table and the food

Ricotta tart


Savory Pie

The fire

I wish I had been there for this

Maybe next time

Get together


I had a fun time on this day..

They are the best


I am really tired today


I was so tired and hungry and drained on this day.

I just sat there and thought I would go crazy eating

But after I was done with the salad and soup I could not eat any more

So I took the rest of this home

I couldn't even talk that much
I haven't felt so tired in a long time.
