Thirsty Thursday: The Blood of my Former Computer

It’s official. My laptop is dead. And now I am in the process of making myself cozy on my desktop.

What’s frustrating about all this is that my laptop was a little over two years old. I was hoping that would last me for a LONG time. But noooooooooooo.

Some geek had to create a virus that went all Matrix on my computer and shot the inside to hell. Hard drive: Fried. Windows: Fried. System Restore: Fried.

I do have my stuff saved on an external hard drive, but still, this is a major burn. It’s going to be a while before I’m back up and running.

Chicken and Veggie Kabobs

A few weekends ago, Michelle’s sister Liz came out to visit. She brought the kiddies along and we made some kabobs. Some with chicken, some with veggies.

They came out really well. Meat on a stick is always good.

After the jump, see more pictures of our kabobs and some assembly tips.

Even More Simple Stir Fry

A couple of months ago, we introduced you to our basic stir fry.

For that recipe, we used fresh veggies. But this is a recipe that you can buy the ingredients for and make it anytime.

Yes, it uses frozen vegetables and your choice of sauce. It could not be more easy.

The original plan called for peanuts on the stir fry. But it was late and we forgot them.

We’re Melting

I was going to start off your week with a pump-you-up post about grilling! In the sun! But for some reason, the temperature here in our little town (and along the entire East Coast, apparently) has been hovering around the 90 degree mark.

Um … what?! Our calendar isn’t wrong. It IS April, right?

Viruses, Worms and Ad Ware

Feaston’s main computer has been victimized by the online equivalent of a drive-by shooting.

Yep, we got the virus …. er something. Who knows, but every now and then it makes my computer freak out and has now disabled TWO anti-virus programs.

Damn geeks.

So bear with us as we have to use our backup computers which are a little older and don’t have all of the pictures we need on it.

Dinner, Thy Name is Kale

This was one of those meals that came from the deep recesses of MY MIND! The idea was to make some couscous with greens and top the whole deal with shrimp. Sounds good, right?

It was! Even if it didn’t come out exactly as I hoped.

We went a little non traditional and used flavored couscous. It was waay good.

Thirsty Thursday: Gruut

It’s been a while since we actually sat down to drink a beer. A WHOLE beer.

And we were not disappointed.

It’s our pleasure to introduce you to Gruut, a Belgian amber ale.
