Phoebe's seven!!!

With Phoebe's 7th birthday last week, I thought I'd put together a little montage of her first seven years. It's a little long, but that's what they say about tall guys.

* Note: I never realized that YouTube couldn't take videos over 10 minutes long, which is why I had to post in this format. Sorry for the small screen. I guess if I didn't get carried away and make a freaking 14 minute video.... (but I love my little girl so much I couldn't resist!)

Ok, maybe they're not

Since I discovered this little thing called Facebook, the blog pretty much took a backseat. I'm a sucky blogger, I know. However, I have been keeping up with yours (yes, and yours too). I'll post something vaguely meaningful in the near future. Until then, Happy Halloween!

They're coming...

...No, not Remo. But I recently went through a bunch of old photos from the late 80s / early 90s (some of which include Mr. Chris himself) and sent them to a professional photo scanning service. I'll be posting some once they're processed. As Brandi says, "muwhahahahaha..."

Now that's al dente!

For Christmas, I was the lucky recipient of a set of pasta roller attachments for my Kitchen Aid mixer. Now some of you might say, "so what?," but I say, "WOO HOO!"

Making fresh pasta is very simple and the apparatus (apparati?) are easy to use. Pasta dough, depending on what you want to make, is essentially flour and water. You can use different kinds of flour, add eggs and/or olive oil among other things.

My first several batches were made from semolina flour, water, and eggs. The first part is rolling it out, then get it to the right thickness, then cut it to the size you want (spaghetti or fettucine). I tell ya, there's absolutely nothing like fresh pasta. With the first batches, I made fettuccine with homemade Alfredo sauce (another easy recipe of butter, cream, and Parmesan).

The bad news? Well, I'm currently on a quest to lose 20 lbs in 30 days, so fresh pasta is definitely OUT of the question. However, when carbo-loading is back in order, you know I'll be cranking out sheets of this stuff.

Guaranteed to turn men gay

I know it may seem that I am a YouTube junkie, but it's rare that I'm actually on the site. However, when I do check it out, it's amazing the things I have found. For example, take this video:

Men - do NOT watch this. If you do, there's a likelihood you'll start saying "fabulous" a lot and making fun of "heteros" with your girlfriends.

Women - enjoy the hotness that is Hasselhoff!

Stop the insanity!

Bad joke of the day

What gets longer when pulled, fits between your boobs, inserts neatly in a hole AND works best when jerked?

A seat belt you pervert! Buckle Up!
