I should do this again... My life is just way to awesome not to share.
So sure, I'll update my facebook still, I won't update my twitter account... still.
But when I have a great experience (which lets face it, happens often in my life), I'll post about it.
Most recent one? My best friend had a CD release party for one of his bands last weekend, and the same band is opening up for a major artist this coming weekend.
Before that: Christmas in Missouri. Really. Included with that was tasting some sweet wine that was called 'semi-sweet', some other really good wine from grapes I've never heard of, and a tasting of International Gold Medal winning goat cheese at the local Phillips 66 gas station.
White Castle = Disgusting
Steak 'n Shake = Impossibly fun to say aloud.
I can cook a full dinner for 8 in 1.5 hours (including sauces and with no prep), a feat which amazed some in the party of 8.
Emerils Cider Brined Turkey works on a wild turkey, but not as well as the store bought. Still tender, moist and good though.
I have a girlfriend that has taken a lead role in my life. She is as awesome as me. (The mutual concession of our only argument thus far produces that last assertion.) I shall call her: Amazing.
I quit smoking months ago.
Amazing is as much of a foodie as I have always wanted to be, so most of my money seems to go to food (it's close against cars). We have been together for 7 months and have had 'nice dinners out' a couple dozen times I would guess.
A supplement to the food passion, I have been cooking a lot more than I ever have, and self-teaching in the kitchen. Only the second date I had with Amazing, I made Beef Wellington for the first time - also using a recipe of my creation (admittedly not much of a departure from standards). It turned out wonderful. (Both the food and the date.)
I have taken way too much time off from Business School. I plan to return in the spring.
I'm still a car-nut. So much so, I have 4 different cars than whatever it was I had since my last entry in this blog. And again, feel like I need to get rid of some.
Wine is still a big part. Even more so now that food has taken a larger role.
I stopped working out. :(
I'm about the same weight I was last year, but many of those pounds on me are from a different source. I'll keep a record here of my weight. I was 177 pounds last Sunday.
Thats it for now. Keep coming back for new posts.
I was politely informed it was the fourth date I made the Wellington.
