So Last Week: November 11th - 17th, 2013

MONDAY 11.11

Declared November 11th International Day of The Sharp Kitchen Knife knowing full well that at least one veteran was going to express their indignation over my choice of dates without any consideration for or even knowledge of the fact that I regularly speak out about what I believe is the best way to honor our war veterans. 

Made Creamy Butternut Squash Soup and Buttermilk Corn Muffins with Mads for our November Cookalong. As she gets older, I'm grateful for the commonality of food, among other things, to keep us relating. :)

Took a lovely walk downtown with the fam per Joey's request... 

And then came home to some semi-homemade ramen, which also made Joey extremelyvery happy.


Made a Stock Rotation Cleanout Italian Chicken Stew...


Hung out with Izz on the patio while she tortured a snail.

Shared my Broccoli Raisin Slawlad recipe, which is great for those holiday potlucks, BTW...

And indulged in some Wagyu beef and Matsutake mushroom yakiniku at home.


Black Friday can suck it.

FRIDAY 11.15

Did my first weekly vlog on how to say pho, "thank you" in Korean, and also about gochujang. :D

Shared my Basic Seasoned Gochujang recipe as a follow up.

And also a little Fall cheer from the garden. :)


Spent some time with a couple of our favoritest friends, tasting beer, shooting the shit, and enjoying an easy lunch.

Some really good beer, I must say. :)))

SUNDAY 11.17

Shared my recipe for Super Fluffy Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pumpkin Pancakes as well as thoughts on eating a little parenting crow.

Took the fam for a little excursion downtown to try Zig Zag Pizza Pie and to take Izz down to the beach for the first time since she started walking, per Joey's request of last week. (See immediately preceding item. :P)

Had the best time together. 

And laughed all the way home joking about bodily functions and convincing our kids yet again that we have no rhythm. To their favorite songs, no less.

How many days 'til Turkey Day again? Not enough is alls I know...
