We had some friends over tonight to check out the wedding video and also just to catch up before the holidays (Matt leaves on Tuesday for Florida). For those of you that haven’t seen it, here is a short highlight montage to capture the day. Enjoy.
A Lamb Chop dinner
Just finished eating dinner and I’m rather proud of the meal I just made for the two of us. It was incredibly delicious. I thought I’d share the random recipe I put together based on cookbooks as well as playing around with ingredients a bit. (I also don’t want to forget what I did) My measurements aren’t exact as I usually eye the food… Lamb Chops w/Arugula Pesto & Pureed ParsnipMade to serve 2 3-4 ParsnipsRack of Lamb Rib Chops (about 6-10 pieces, enough so each person has about 3-5)2 oz.

I choose……HD DVD
Impulse buy of the week — I got the Xbox HD DVD player. I’ve been eyeing it for a few months now, especially after getting the new TV but just couldn’t justify the $180 price tag (which is not bad compared to the $300 Toshiba HD DVD player).

Rain Rain Go Away
It’s been raining nonstop since yesterday—but not just normal barely-hurts Seattle rain…it’s been like a downpour. I still made it into work today but then kept watching the news as Governor Gregoire declared a state of emergency in Washington State and then they shut down a huge section of I-5 as a result of flooding. I fortunately live in a condo up on a hill so don’t need to worry about flooding basements or overflowing sump pumps….but man, it’s a mess around the area! I’m now home, dry and in my pajamas.Car on Stone Ave. N in Seattle 148th Ave NE, Bellevue, down the road from where I work Downtown…
Snowing in Seattle
It’s snowing in Seattle! And lots of it! Don’t know if it’ll stick (and I think the weather reports say it won’t)—but still, it’s a lot of snow!
