Cobwebs, Bed Bugs and Teenage Sacrifice…A Halloween Confessional

A forlorn, middle aged mom walks out from stage left.  Her eyes are cast down onto the floor.  She slowly shuffles in wearing old sweats with paint on them, an over sized t-shirt and her hair just-right-messed up with bedhead product. In the middle of the stage is a large box with velvet curtains drawn closed to conceal the little room.  On stage right, just next to the room is a  desk with a computer, candle and incense on it. The mom walks slowly over to the desk and strikes a match to light the candle, then the incense.  … [Read more...]

Fall is my favorite food time of year!  Pumpkins, spaghetti squash, sweet potatoes, lamb, onions, turnips, beets, apples and cranberries!  As soon as I see cranberries hit the shelf at the store, I scoop them up and add them to our daily diet!

Fancy Friday At LoveFeast Table

This is really where we spent most of the front of our computers, drawing, writing, planning, and noshing on bites our husbands brought to us.  Kids came in and out, crawled on our laps, dogs muddled around our feet, the front door opened in and out with neighborhood kids, but we stayed focused only coming up for air to eat, and our night out at Heidi's.  You see we are working on a LoveFeast Table re-design. For us, it doesn't take long when we are together to get our creative juices flowing. So, we … [Read more...]

Heidi’s Restaurant Review

You just have no idea how incredible this drink was.  It is the drink I've been obsessing about since last summer, when my husband Todd and I had a lovely pre-anniversary dinner date at Heidi's, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Maybe I was tired, maybe I just needed to relax, or maybe I was thirsty.  But whatever it was, this drink hit the spot.  It could have been that our server muddled my second mojito table side, the smashed mint wafting in the air.   Definitely, it has risen to the top of my drink experiences, right up there with … [Read more...]

The Expected Fall “Apple Picking” Post…plus!!

As I blog hop, there is a common theme this time of year.  It usually comes in the form of pumpkins, apple picking and hay rides.  I have to say, they all begin to look alike after a while.  Cute kids.  Crisp pink noses.  Huge, orange pumpkins.  Red apples...and lots of apple recipes.  I'd like to tell you this post will be different.  But, it won't. There are cute kids with pink noses. Orange pumpkins. Piles of apples in wagons. And a Bonus!!  The bonus is one of the most killer apple … [Read more...]
