Sorry for the lack of posts lately and it may seem like I have been slacking, but life has definately gotten in the way lately. Besides work this month, we have had my son's girlfriend's birthday on the 7th and mine on the 9th, son's guitar concert, daughter's band concert, son's surgery (tonsils and adenoids removed) and I attended a 1980's prom theme bachelorette party. And I have the pictures to prove it.......

These pics were taken at Flying Pie Pizzeria. The BEST Pizza in Boise! They have what they call "It's Your Day", and when it is your day you get to come in and make a free pizza. On this day it was for everyone born in May, so my son's girlfriend and I got to make a free pizza on the same day. Awesome. Their website is Check it out.

First we had to pick out our goofy hats. I chose a moose and leila chose a deformed turkey (reminds me of the poor turkey from the Thanksgiving episode of "South Park".

Dough Masters

Now for the best part.....Eating. I've got a really good canadian bacon, jalepenos, artichoke hearts, pineapple, zucchini, mushrooms, mozzerella, gouda and one other cheese I can't remember what it was now. I just remember it was delish! Leila made half her's without cheese for the vegan boy.
Daniel's guitar concert. He's the one with the bandana with the hair in his face next to Mr. Grant his teacher. This is his second year.

Alexis got to play 2 solos, since she is the only 6th grade band student. And then she also played all the songs with the 5th graders. This is also her second year.

Dan before his surgery...after he got the happy drugs. Looks like he's feeling quite well.

And after.....feeling rather miserable.

Now sorry if some of these are a little risque', but it is a bachelorette party after all.

Some of the girls posing with Fabio........

In the limo on the way to dancing and drinking downtown. I'm the old one on the right.

Love this pic. Check out those straws.

And Sharon getting a lap dance from the Prom Queen (er, bride-to-be). Check out the top of the tiara. Took tons of pics (the battery on my camera died-guess I should have paced myself), but just wanted to post a few for ya'll. Now you know why I have been so busy, so I will try to keep up with this a little more. Glad to be back.

Local Dinner

Went to our local downtown Farmer's Market last Saturday and picked out a few things for a nice dinner. Got some bread from Alipcella a local Boise bakery. It is a mushroom, spinach and feta cheese bread that I basted with fresh garlic butter and toasted on the grill. The Bok Choy and Kale stir-fry was from a local farm. And the Wine is from the Snake River Winery, also here in Idaho. Served with whole wheat spaghetti and a chickpea, veggie marinara sauce, topped with fresh romano cheese. Delish.

Check out your local Farmer's Market and see what you can find. Makes for a fun Saturday. We also got some local salsa and some huckleberry honey, an heirloom tomato plant and some organic Kale and Chard for the garden.
