Two Things I Learned Tonight

Thing the first: When the cookbook says that the skins will slip off of your beets easily after cooking, what they leave unsaid is that the beet is liable to flip up into the air and then roll right down the front of your clothes and onto the floor, leaving a red mess everywhere.

Thing the second: Tuck, apparently, likes beets.

Because Several People Have Asked

I hadn't really mentioned it because it felt odd putting it out there to a lot of people I don't know, but we do have a wedding registry on Amazon. It's not big and most of the items have already been purchased for us.

Since David & I have been around the block a few times and aren't kids just starting out, we actually didn't need very much, but we thought it would be a good opportunity to get a set of matching plates to replace the hodgepodge we have and upgrade a few aged small kitchen appliances. Now I just need to pull out all the old stuff and rearrange things neatly before we have visitors next week.

Peeling beets gives an entirely new meaning to the phrase "hot potato".

I need an email address to access your list on Amazon -- I tried "David and Mel" but it didn't seem to work.

And you didn't take pictures of the colorful kitchen excitement?! ;)

SNORT! Tuck likes beets! Is it weird that I am doing a countdown in my head to your big day and I've never even 'met' you!

vuboq doesn't like beets. he realizes that tastes change, but every time he tastes them he says, "YURCK!" *sigh*

well, amazon wants me to give a "last name" to access your wedding registry.

I don't have one.


so I can't give you something for your special day.

I will, however, wish for both of you all the love and commitment and joy (and sometimes pain) it takes to make a marriage work. it's never easy, and most times it's fulfilling. three cheers for mel and david!

What about a money tree for setting up a travel fund so you two can go somewhere you'd love?

We missed you at Bennington!

Hey congratulations! Fred and I are getting married in September. I need to do a post about that on my blog. Amazon gift registry, huh? And thanks for the birthday wishes.
