It was a very sad day for me a few weeks back when my beloved Honda Civic conked out. True, it did have about 220,000 miles on it, and we'll probably end up getting it fixed to have as a backup car, but we figured it was time to upgrade from a two door.

We've been talking for years about our next car . . . a nice safe volvo or a sporty/nerdy prius (depending on which sister's opinion you're getting). I definitely never imagined myself driving
this big-ass carbon footprint monster truck wannabe.

If my memory serves me correctly, I think sister 2 had one of these with a very squeaky rear window.

Strangely, it is starting to grow on me.

Beef. It's What's for Dinner

Beef.  It's what's for dinner.

  That ad campaign started in 1992
and today's prime rib could have a starring role.

The back up players included a nice bottle of wine,

Our new holiday favorite --- 
roasted brussel sprouts in brown butter with toasted almonds,

garlic roasted potatoes and crescent rolls.

It just doesn't get any better than this!

Now it's time for a nap!
