Menu Plan Monday: Purple

December 29, 2015
Yup, this week we are going to taste colors. I was inspired to make a color-themed meal plan whilst I was cutting up heirloom carrots in all sorts of colors, including purple for Christmas dinner, which I forgot to take pictures of before it was devoured, but it looked good and tasted even better.

Monday:  Eggplant Lasagna - a mashup of multiple recipes, so I guess I should post my own version.

Tuesday:  Sweet Potato Bisque

Wednesday: Road trip!
Thursday: NYE - I hope someone else is cooking
Friday: I need to decide between Purple Carrot Cake (it's savory!) or Purple Carrot and Ginger Soup.

Nerdvember Recap

December 1, 2015
All my goofy glory and amazing t-shirt collection recapped in one post. I managed every day except one and I still have plenty of t-shirts left. There was no DisneyBounding or much subtle cosplay compared to last year. And I am very happy to return to behind the camera until next year.
