Eating Local in San Diego + WIAW

We're finally getting some normalcy post-move. The term "normal" is used loosely for us. The boxes are slowly disappearing.  Things have places on shelves.  There are curtains in the bedroom and dining room (the other rooms are another story).  We joined a gym... I joined a second gym.  We have groceries and are eating at home *almost* each week day.  And we have redneck Christmas lights strung up on the cabana. … [Read More...]

Lessons From Route 66

Driving across the US can be as entertaining as going to Europe. Just in a more... American... way.  Go 'Merica. If you've been following along, you know that Vegas and I picked up a hitchhiker at Graceland.  The King himself. The second day of our cross country move involved a trip to … [Read More...]

Oatmeal Jam Cookies

Oatmeal Jam Cookies [Recipe]

The fun part about moving is using all the baking supplies. Flour, and sugar, and buttah.... oh my! I made Cat's browned butter cookies for the gym crew.  Then I did the Fudgy Brownies that Juli linked up to last week's #strangebutgood to have as road snacks for Vegas and me.  For ease, I made … [Read More...]

15 Moving Tips

I'm committed to stop chasing my tail and start packing. Less than a week to go.  Fear is a great motivator. This weekend was a really product weekend for packing.  The kitchen, bathroom, and dresser are all 95% packed; I'm just keeping out the necessities.  Last week I collected some great … [Read More...]

Strange But Good: Moving Food

It's getting a little odd. Next week should be really interesting. I refuse to buy more food until I go.  There's enough in my freezer to feed a small African village me for months.  Not to mention all the going away dinners and lunches.  No way do I need to go shopping.  But look out, Whole … [Read More...]
