Yesterday was a blast. We had our own mini cheese party since we have all this cheese from a couple weeks ago. Our friends came over and we ate, played games, and visited. The spread turned out quite nice – I laid butcher paper on a table and under each cheese I wrote down what… Continue reading Mini cheese fest and Mario Kart
My life has been fairly interesting and busy lately. Two weeks ago I went to Grand Lake on a family vacation. I loved getting to spend time with my family – two of my cousins even came.

Elisabeth and I made our favorite ranch and sriracha pizza – it turned out pretty well although we could have put more pineapple and chicken on. Gene made his own personal pan pizza (with one entire pizza crust) and… Continue reading Pizza and biscuits
