Winter Light

I used to walk across this baseball field every day, going to and from elementary school. The fields seemed enormous at the time, constituting a major chunk of what seemed like a very long walk to my little kid legs. Now they just seem small and lonely and the light in the morning, so cold.

She's A Master

For holidays, my grandma makes the pies in our family. That's pumpkin, mincemeat, peach and pecan. Where'd you think I learned all the tricks?

Hometime New Years

I am entirely too disorganized to post all the food and the adventure and the holiday I've been having, but in the spirit of 'one step at a time', I thought I'd just stop in to wish you a happy start to this year. I crossed into 2011 happily in the company of both of my siblings and my old time besties Abby + Matt in their fair Madison, WI. (This, you may realize, is a mere stone's throw from my hometown hometown, Neenah.) New Years's in Wisconsin have never been in my experience terribly memorable and this year, we were hoping to change that.

We made homemade ravioli! I've never done that! And despite their filling being a little 'overwhelmingly hazelnut', they were tasty. Other perks of the holiday included some scrappy rum and coke pre-gaming, champagne and cocktails at the new cozy & hip farm to table spot downtown for midnight, an awesome show in a crowded bar to finish off our livers, hot, frosted cinnamon rolls and breakfast sammies to cure any lingering hangovers this morning and, then, college football. With the exception of Badger defeat at the hands of TCU, it was perfect.

Not bad, Wisconsin, not bad at all. To the new! Cheers.
