Just Keeping On Trucking

mood: determined

I'm happy that my teriyaki chicken came out tasty, along with the Dramatically Seared Green Beans with Garlic and Chile. I tend to rather plain cooking, so it was nice to break out a little. Teenboy is reading recipes, he claims to be an excellent cook. I'm willing to let him try, at least.

Also: I am finally getting the hang of making kidlet's Ballet Bun. She's got such thick hair (both thick strands and many of them) that it's a bit of a struggle to tame it. Nutcracker this weekend!

And finally, my seasonal icon. absolutefiction put the menorah on, but Viggo really did do two photos in drag. This one cracks me up every time.

Viggo is so seasonally pretty!

Oh, The Nutcracker -- such a lovely ballet for everyone. *pets my little nutcracker as he stands beside the fireplace.*

Will give the recipe a go!

The version of the Nutcracker we saw last year seemed to last for days, I'm hoping they are a bit swifter this year.

Hiiiii!

I cooked the beans tonight and they were yummy. My house smells like a bistro, however, but that‘s not necessarily a bad thing.

I'm glad they worked for you! My teenboy cooked something tonight that took an hour and a half, I hate long stints like that.

*G* I think the menorah is just perfect, perched up there. Viggo really does carry it off well, eh? ^_~

He's such a rewarding man to be a fan of. Every time he does something perhaps a little over-serious, he balances it with something completely silly, like that San Lorenzo flag. Hard not to love him.
