weekend update sep. 27, 2008

i Feel like i should update on our weekend adventures more often. prolly i don't because, really, what makes our weekend any more interesting or special than anyone else? Though, really if you are one of the 3 or so people reading this, you already know what happened on my weekend, or its something to gloss over, in general upkeep of events.

i was sick last week, so Friday was not so eventfull. we made [by we, i mean Tim, since i was sick] ma po tofu and spicy sausage stir fry, with saki. We watched Short Circut. I some how had totally missed this movie growing up. when Wall-E came out this summer i was like "johnny 5? wa?"
I 'm sure this is a good movie if you have fond memories from childhood about it. otherwise its mediocre at best. Ali Sheddy's acting got worse the older she got. i can not stand her in this movie, it pretty much ruins the whole thing for me. We also started Battlestar Galastica. little did we know that the first disk was the 3 hr mini series all rolled together. We finished it saturday. not bad really.

Saturday, we went to IHOP. why did we go to IHOP? good question. I saw an ad on TV showing delishious looking creps, and advertising that IHOP is celebrating its 50th anniversery. I've been to IHOP like twice. ever. So we went. the creps were ok. nothing else was too exciting. but we went. now we never need to go again. :)
Shortly after i was wisked away to an all day bridal shower. I asssume Tim enjoyed having some time to himself at home. Meanwhile i ate egg baked things, vegitable chips and cupcakes. it went well, mainly no one thought it a good idea to play any games. I finally pointed out that i needed to be home by 4:30, since the party started at 11am, it seemed like a resonable request.
Dinner with Tim's folks, then hanging out with Katie- watching the rest of BG.

Sunday, grocery shopping, buying roasted green chilies [one of my favorite adventures of fall], also picked up a Hubbard squash, on the recommendation that they are fabulous for pumpkin pie. we'll see. we [I] had the bright idea that if we were going to make runzas [tim knows them by the vulgar German name] that we should make our own dough. apparently this dough was to "rise." i went to soccer and came back, the dough had not moved. we went to collect treasures form new mexico from my parents, and apples from Tim's, still no rise. we called it good, and made them anyway. they taste just like they should. i also made German plum cake. it is good, but used only 1/4 of my plums. i will make more. i think i will try them in muffin tins.

somewhere in there Tim got more of the patio done. it doesn't look great, but considering that neither one of us has ever put in a patio, on un even ground with stones of different thicknesses, I think it looks pretty good. we are also trying to get the rest of the rototill done. i want to drop a bunch on $$ getting the yard in shape, but we need to pace our selves. its expensive.
