A blog by ordinary people about living an extraordinary life
Sorry that this is my first post in about a week, it was an eventful week for us.
1. Finals week in the MSF: This past week was Meghan’s finals in her first semester of the MSF program at Suffolk University. Needless to say this meant there was a lot of studying and a whole lot less time for blogging.
2. My sister and brother-in-law were in from Thousand Oaks: It was so great to see them, the last time we were together was in May in California for their wedding.
3. Tis the season: Last week also meant it was crunch time for some Christmas shopping, Christmas planning, caroling (OK, so no caroling, though we did go to karaoke last night, that is a whole other nightmare). Once again this year, the Champagne-Lally Christmas extravaganza will be at Meg’s mom’s house. Meghan and I are in charge of dessert, as usual, and I will be handling the majority of the cooking. I actually need to try to convince my mother-in-law to try a new prime rib recipe (even though I will not be eating it).
4. The final week of the Farmer Dave CSA for 2012: And our fridge is still full of vegetables. I have more carrots than I know I what to do with, though I joke about getting a pet bunny. I also have potatoes, a variety of greens, half of a gigantic sweet potato and of course, some beets. You will see many of these ingredients in posts this week as the menu contains a lo-mein dish and an attempt at homemade vegetable sausages.
Even in this busy time of year, find some time to do something for someone else. Today I am helping a friend move (either because I am a glutton for punishment or a really nice guy). At least it is still not snowing here in Boston. To give you a sneak peak at a few more posts before the year is over, I plan to look back at the events of 2011 that made this year such a great year for Meg and I, and look forward to 2012. Stay tuned.
