Cook the House Down

Had some friends over this morning for a small Easter brunch. It's a different type of family.
I made blueberry Belgian waffles and J. brought over fresh strawberries and grapes to go on top. Wash also picked up a Chipotle Blueberry sauce to try with them, it was smokey and quite tasty.
This morning was pretty shitty, but the afternoon has turned around a bit, and it is better.


  1. Despite those Absolutely Awful (Immediate Family) "Troubles"............ which are so deeply/legitimately upsetting; and additionally just so unavoidably-wearing, unavoidably-tiring, and unavoidably-exhausting, too, *F.O.R.* poor you & Wash, (i.e., sadly, I've also "been there" WAY-too-many times MYSELF, you know!!)............ you hosted the Seder dinner for your Family, along with preparing such a *lovely* 5-course vegetarian meal, this past Friday night; THEN you made (so *yummy*-looking!!) Blueberry Belgian Waffles for Easter Sunday Brunch for your friends??!!

    Well, all I can say, Tashi, is that I think you~~~(in TRUE Browncoat fashion!!)~~~probably CONQUERED a helluva *l.o.t.* of things this weekend, i.e., both in and OUT of your Kitchen!!

    Wishing you both warmth and comfort; and sending you meditative prayers and (((*hugs*))), Tashi & Wash, this Passover Week of April 6th - 14th............ and also Happy Easter, too!!

  2. Hi - I just discovered your blog today, I got to your story from someone who posted a Regretsy post on Facebook, which got me to the Regretsy Tardis urn, and from there I followed the links. I wish I could make a big cash donation, but as it is I cannot even make a small one :-(. I was thinking of another way I could offer help and be able to follow up on any promises I end up making - as I am generally very unreliable, and very disorganized, I need to be very careful about what I offer. When I read through some of your earlier blog posts I figured you guys have cats. So, since I am a heavy duty cat person, I thought that I could offer to help if at any stage you need help with your cats - I could come and clean litter, feed and water them, and if you run low on money for groceries, I could bring them food and litter. If you need to be away from home for an extended period of time, I am happy to check on them, and play with them if they need that. I am quite knowledgeable about feline health issues, if you need any advice. Please contact me on Facebook (Gerda Lobo) if/when you want me to help with the cats. I will be out of commission for about a week, starting Tuesday, as I will be recovering from surgery. I will also be out of town towards the end of April, and again in May and June, but anytime I am in town (and not having surgery :-) ) I could help. I live in Tempe close to ASU campus.

  3. It's a nice day for you. And also if we are spend a day with our family, that day will come so much happiness for our life. But if you want to keep safe your home and home products from some animal, you must be know the solution how you get rid of that animals. So you need to check my pest control denver site to know more information about that.
