Hello, Internets. I am tired.

It's 5:00PM here in Copenhagen and already pitch dark. It feels more like 8:30PM. Michael asked if I wanted him to turn on the Glorified Toaster Oven to bake our dinner biscuits and it sounded like a reasonable idea until I realized it was 4:45PM. It seems like we should celebrate the big 3-0 before we take up the eating habits of Florida's senior citizen population.

Tomorrow I have a doctor's appointment so I packed in a bunch of housekeeping into one day. Two loads of laundry, one mushroom stew, one golden cream of potato soup, one vacuumed apartment, two separate shopping trips, one teething toddler and the washing of approximately 72 dirty dishes later and I'm ready to call it a night.

I have been trying a number of new recipes lately. One of my very favorites is this great recipe for vegetarian chili that my graduate school/church friend Elizabeth posted recently on her blog. I didn't have any chili powder so I substituted with various things including two red hot chili peppers and a teaspoon of ground red pepper. Needless to say it had enough heat to keep us warm despite temperatures being in the windy mid-40s.

That's not so pathetic. Try eating dinner on a Friday night at Bob Evans before 5 p.m. (Sadly, it's happened on more than one occasion--Rose likes their stuffed French toast.)

We're lame.

Haha! Of course it's Rose's fault you find yourselves there so regularly on Friday nights? ;)

Hey now! ;) Those two actually went fancy-pants with us and we all went to Carino's last Friday!

We'll miss you this weekend at our chili cook-off. Chad and I are attempting a Texas style in your absence. We'll try do to Michael proud. :)

I'm sure it will be great chili. Just pile on the chili powder!
