Dinner Rolls

I know it’s not really the thing right now to eat bread but I make really good dinner rolls. I do realize that other people make good rolls too. I love to mix the ingredients together in the bowl and to smell the yeast. I love the way the dough feels when I knead it…

Good Soup

Sometimes you don’t feel well and you’re just whiny and needy. Do you feel like boiling chicken and vegetables?  Do you feel like straining out the vegetables, de-boning the chicken?  Do you want to wait for simmering to take place? Well I didn’t, so I had a weak moment in the grocery store (okay, this…

Taking a Break

Just writing this to say that we are taking a short break from posting.  We’ll start back up in March.

Weapons of the Dark Cloud Universe

I’ve recently been going through the different word documents and putting them into excel documents for Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2 to make it easier to add them to the Dark Cloud access database I’m working one.  One of the first documents I worked on for both games is the weapon documents.  Each game…

Overnight Breakfast

I have been reading about overnight oatmeal and although it didn’t sound that appetizing, I wanted to try it. I was probably feeling really lazy one night and the idea of just getting breakfast out of the refrigerator without cooking anything was appealing. I tried it and it is awesome! I looked at several recipes…

Skyrim: Some of my Choices

So I finally got Skyrim, first from my brother for the PS3 and then the PS4 Special Edition, and I knew I would have to make some choices on my character.  The first two choices are usually race and class.   I also play a Khajiit as my first playthrough, so that was one less choice. …

Curried Cauliflower Rice

I am really enjoying experimenting with this cauliflower rice. This week I made a curried dish with golden raisins and slivered almonds. Next week I think I will make a tomato poblano chicken black bean dish. But that’s for next week, let’s talk about this week! I sliced three cloves of garlic, yes three, garlic…

Thankful for Brussel Sprouts

We had a very quiet and peaceful Thanksgiving and I hope you did too. We cooked our favorite foods and just enjoyed the day. There are so many things in this world to be thankful for. While buying our Thanksgiving groceries I saw a stalk of fresh brussel sprouts at Trader Joe’s and couldn’t resist…

Access and Video Games

With games I tend to play over and over again, I start to make quicksheets or lists of common things in the game.  Sometimes its collectables, unlockables, quests, or a weapon/armor upgrade.  I started just using Microsoft Word for these and then switched to Microsoft Excel once I became more familiar with it.  Lately in…

Game Backlog

As I was inventorying my games that I own physically as oppose to digitally, I came across a few that I haven’t even played yet.  That got me thinking about the back log of games that I own, a lot of which are digitally owned games.  The backlog only includes games that I haven’t played,…

Cauliflower Rice

I have been reading about cauliflower rice and didn’t really understand what it was. I saw a bag of it at a local grocery store and threw it in the buggy so I could see what it was all about. It is just cauliflower that has been put through a food processer until it turned…

October is Over

  October was a really busy month for us. It seemed to go by in a blur, even work seemed a little more hectic than usual.  Probably because we try to avoid having busy months. We just want to stay home, we’re boring like that. Really, we have everything we need right here so why…
