Blah, Blah, Blah... Another Boring Move Update

Our abode is beginning to really take shape! We have only three more major pieces of furniture due to be delivered in the next couple of weeks (a dresser, some night stands, and a cushy chair for the living room). And then we'll be in the cleaning & accessorizing stages. Our office is, um, a little messy at the moment, but AMAZING.

Also, it's SO nice having a kitchen to ourselves. I've actually been *gulp* preparing dinner!!! It used to be take-out almost all the time for us on weekends, or eating my dad's dinners during the week, but now I can come home and make pasta, goulash (well, attempt to make it), or, what's becoming the common theme around here, a Mexican dinner of some sort (enchiladas, tacos, refried beans, white trash tostadas).

Let me be completely honest - cooking still intimidates the hell out of me! I bought and browned some ground beef the other day for the very first time and it was a frightening experience. But it's so nice not having to shell out money for lunch everyday, as I can make a sandwich before work, and the formerly-frequent trips to fast-food or sit-down eateries have nearly stopped altogether. Hurray for kitchens! And here's to learning to cook.

Well, I wanted to say more, but Erik's on his way home and I'm gonna start making some tacos for dinner and change the laundry. Ahhh, domestic bliss!

things people have said

ahh... But are your sandwiches better than the good 'ol back lot cafe version?

Lunch Suggestion: I tried this over the weekend. Sweet Hawaiian sliced bread (not toasted), Mayo, a little mustard, Sharp cheese, Turkey Meat, a little horse radish, and baked ruffles potato chips stuck on top of the turkey meat...makes for a crunchy sandwich. yum!!
