Yacht Dinner

One of our suppliers had a casino night on the Hudson River. I swear we went around Manhattan 4 times. Apparently they hadn't done this in a few years.

They're Italian, the food and drinks were awesome: lox, yummy local ipa, mahi mahi, prime rib, and grappa. I fell asleep as soon as I got back!


Mom, not sure what cabin, but my bed does recline.I'm eating breakfast right now, they offer coffee and muffins. Lots of Europeans here, feel like minority.

I already accomplished my goal yesterday, just a half day today then I'm done. I think I might go to a museum or Chinatown.

Flowers are already blooming here!

Crazy work....

We had a big meeting with upper management this morning, they want me to source specialized pharma packaging ASAP, so I was told at 1230 that I had a 5pm flight. Big conference at the Jacob jarvits center.

I'm staying in times square, looks like a trendy hotel (google yotel).

Still heading to Michigan, got a flight direct from NY Friday morning.

Time to deplane!

Food and Snow

Steph had leftover biscuits we wanted to use up. She found this recipe, we adjusted it to what we had on hand. You could easily do a veggie version.

 We still buy Tillamook :)

 Steph likes her hot sauce!

 Saturday Project -

We still had a lot of unripe peppers on the plants after the first frost so I picked them all and dried them inside over the winter.
 Super spicy

 Started our seeds last week, mostly tomatoes, peppers, and basil.

Snowday. I grabbed a loaner laptop from work yesterday, not supposed to stop until tomorrow morning.

This was at 9AM, still pouring out right now

Our First (successful) Batch of Beer

We bottled our first batch of beer on Sunday. We think the first kit had bad yeast and never fermented. I got a Belgium Dark kit at the homebrew store next to Equinox Brewery in Fort Collins.
 Removing the grain bag
 Almost at a boil
 small pour steph can barely reach in the kettle :)

 We racked the beer in the carboy then added the priming sugar before bottling.
Carter got me a Ferrari capper, big help!
 Two Weeks until the finished product. We got (18) 22oz bottles, and (12) 12oz.

Easter ribs

We had a nice Easter meal at Erica's yesterday afternoon, I decided to make ribs. Steph made carrot cake. We had a lot of other yummy sides too, Erica will post soon!

Beautiful day, was over 70. We were getting hot in the sun.
