The Wedding!



Some mornings I wake up and I still can't believe we actually went through with it. After threatening to get married for over a year, we took the plunge.

It was a very simple ceremony, performed by a local judge, right outside the courthouse. The weather was as perfect as it could be here in Alamosa (plenty of sunshine but very windy), and things went off without a hitch.

Dev's family was there (unfortunately, mine could not attend, but my friend Diane from Georgia happened to be here visiting, so she stood up for me. She's like a sister to me, anyway, so it was perfect) and my friends Mel and Cheri from school and Claire, Connie, Kim and Debbie from my knitting circle came. Kim's husband, Brian, wants to get into wedding photography, so he came and took some groovy pics. Kim also brought a cake (the one you see in the pic above).

After the ceremony, we all walked over to the local brew pub and had some dinner.

All in all, I'd say it was exactly what we wanted it to be. Simple, un-fussy and to the point. I would have liked for my family to have been there, but I'm sure we will mark the occasion when we fly home at the end of July.

Here are a few more pics of the festivities....

Carrot Cake!!!!!!

I made my very first ever from scratch homemade cake at 7,500 feet above sea level today. I have made many homemade cakes before, but that was back home in Savannah, which is practically 2 feet below sea level.

After many dismal failures (including box mixes) I have finally made a cake from scratch that turned out decent. No- better than decent. I think this is the best cake I've ever made. No joke.

It all started when my fried Emmy posted on her blog about receiving as a gift from her hubby, a copy of "The Joy of Cooking." By the way, you should go read her blog. She is nauseatingly multi-talented. She cooks and knits beautifully, as well as a bunch of other stuff I learn about every freakin' time I read her blog. So go over to her blog right now.

Anyhoo...she read the high altitude instructions and cranked out a beautiful red velvet cake that made me drool. After reading that, I decided it was time to stop being a wuss about baking at high altitude and try a…

Pork Posole- Instant Pot Version

I have a good friend at work who is from the Jalisco region of Mexico.  Lorenza grew up outside of Puerto Vallarta.  Recently, she has been educating me on where to find the best Hispanic products and food in the valley where we live.

Aside from ruining my ability to ever eat Mexican food in Rifle ever again, her teachings have made me rediscover my love of Mexican food- both dining out and making it at home.

My husband, Will, is battling a cold for the second time in a row- which was the only excuse I needed to get in the kitchen and whip up some posole.

In my opinion, posole is to Mexican mamas what chicken noodle soup is to American/Southern mamas... pure comfort.

I make absolutely no claims of authenticity, nor do I believe this is the best way to make it.  But it sure did hit the spot after a day of cleaning and craft projects!

Here’s the link to the recipe I used from a blog I read frequently called “Pressure Cooking Today.” I did not follow it exactly (big shock- I know) as I…

Day 1 of Summer 2018!

There are obviously many things to enjoy about summer. Cooking is one of my favorites. Making creative meals at a leisurely pace is a luxury that rarely occurs during the school year. 
This is my first leisurely breakfast creation of the summer. I had leftover roasted sweet potatoes, so I threw them in my trusty cast iron skillet with some rough-chopped red onion and breakfast sausage. Devin likes his eggs scrambled. I like my hash topped with a fried egg. Either way you go- it was a suitable First Breakfast of the Summer!
