A Lesson on Fishcakes....No Measuring Allowed!

Well this is it! No more cooking in our little home. Only eggs, toast and sandwiches for the next few days...and take out!
This morning I couldn't wait to break in my beautiful new Shun knife. So I minced through cloves of garlic and sliced through roasted bell peppers for our last home cooked meal.

I mentioned previously that we had a few fillets of fish in our freezer. Travis' dad, goes up to Canada every Summer and brings home halibut, cod and salmon. We always luck out and get a cooler or two of frozen fish when they come visit.

Bananas, Chocolate Chips & Bubble Wrap!

Pardon my absence. It's been a bit of a whirlwind as of late!

We are moving. We are leaving our sunny home here in Pasadena and heading back to the Great Northwest to brave the colder weather.

Cardboard boxes are stacking, bubble wrap is slowly taking over our house and the tape.....oh the TAPE. You see I bought the cheap tape; although my intuition was telling me not to, I just couldn't reason forking over $20 for tape!? I mean goodness sakes it's tape after all, and this store-brand bundle of six states that it meets the post office's regulations for shipping boxes, so I figured it was good enough for our moving boxes.
