I just have to study for finals and correct my rough draft in English once the teacher returns it. I am still holding on to a straight A semester - I hope it stays that way for the next three weeks! More exciting news - we finally have all the curtains up in our house - What? I know, it only took a year and a half but those things are expensive - I think it was $200 a window and we have five windows sooooo - you can see why it would take so long. Lucky for us several people helped out with 20% off coupons to Bed Bath and Beyond - Heather, Dixie, my mom and Scott's mom (hope I didn't miss anybody) curtain pictures are hard to take
|fun bracelet holder Scott got for me|
|Taylor bought that chicken chime years ago - finally found a good spot for it! Yes, that says squash-iladas They are delicious.|
Scott hung some rope lights (can't see them from the road) on the porch and this picture doesn't do it justice - it's a soft glow you can see from the street - the picture makes it look really bright - those are candles in all the windows and they are not that bright either.
Scott framed another picture
It would appear that I need to find a group called
"coconut-aholics anonymous" I am in love with coconut - I use coconut shampoo, conditioner, hair serum (to keep my curls from being frizzy and dry), baby oil, lotion, chap stick, and I love coconut cake, Noosa coconut yogurt, and coconut/almond chai pudding. I even have coconut tea! I'm addicted!! A few posts ago I told you of my love for panna cotta so I had to try Skinnytaste's coconut panna cotta recipe from her cookbook - it's OK. It is nowhere as creamy as panna cotta but it is tasty and I guess if you don't need all that fat - and I don't- then it's a good replacement. She also has a macaroon recipe that is delicious! I made her Lomo Saltado which is Peruvian stir fry - it might be my new favorite dish! Next time I am adding more jalapenos though - ours were not hot at all.
