The Tribulations of Moving

  H, Bob, and I have decided to move into a house instead of staying here in our apartment for various reasons that are much too boring to explain here. Moving sounded fun six months ago but now that we have six weeks in which to locate a house, pack, and get moving, it is…

PlayStation VR

I have finally bought the Playstation VR and so far I have been enjoying it.  I bought the starter pack for it so I got Playstation VR Worlds which has a variety of games in it.  There are 5 games: Danger Ball, Ocean Descent, Scavengers Odyssey, The London Heist, and VR Luge. Here’s a quick…

Tomato Pizza

Summer is almost here and the tomatoes in the grocery store are gorgeous at this time of year. There are so many things to cook with good tomatoes. I like to put whole grape tomatoes in a quiche or savory bread pudding. I love that pop when you bite into the whole tomato. I like…

Sherlock’s Pub

When I go out to drink, I prefer pubs over bars.  Pubs are more conductive to talking and the food is typically better than most bars.  I also prefer the atmosphere in pubs as opposed to the typical bar atmosphere.  I currently haven’t found my pub yet, so I’m trying different ones.  This past Friday…

Sims 3

I finally ended up playing a Sims game besides the original Sim City.  I saw Sims 3 and two expansions packs on sale and figured “why not?”.  Here’s my observations so far. First there is a really long loading time.  I’m not sure if it’s just slow or if it’s my pc though I’m leaning…

Gazpacho Panzanella

  H bought a membership to a local spice club for my birthday last year. I enjoyed it so much that I requested it for my birthday again this year. Each month I receive, in the mail, a recipe card with small packets of spices. Gazpacho Panzanella (Tomato and Bread Salad) has been one of…

Mass Effect Andromeda: First Impressions

I am a big Mass Effect fan, so when they announced Mass Effect Andromeda I was super excited.  Leading up to the release the only video I watched about Andromeda was the first trailer.  I didn’t want any spoilers or to hype myself up more than I already was.  Since it has come out, I…

Favorite Meals

Most of my favorite meals are really simple. Not a lot of ingredients and usually one pan or pot. I wonder if I love these meals because they are easy or if I just found a good combination of flavors and textures. I like to cook ground turkey with a little olive oil, garlic powder,…

Gaming on the Go

This past week I took a trip to visit my dad, and that started me thinking about portable gaming. One item that I always pack for a trip is my PS Vita.  It’s part of my checklist: Clothes, Toothbrush, PS Vita, and etcetera. On longer trips, I may take my PSP or DS as well….

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.
