Reach of a Chef

Just finished Michael Ruhlman's The Reach of a Chef. Enjoyed it as much as I have his other books. Really makes me want to have a seperate bank account just to go eat at some of the places he writes about, though.

Bill Nye's Birthday

Saw in the newspaper that it was Bill Nye's 51st birthday on Monday - decided to make him a little cake. Chocolate-chocolate chip with nutella frosting, and a little pink candle. I should have taken a picture of it. We sang "Happy Birthday, Bill Nye" and then the kids ate his cake. Messy!

First snow

Little dusting of snow on the ground here in Reno; not as much as expected, but exciting nonetheless. Can't quite suit up the kids and go play in it, but that'll be before we know it...

Kind of a test entry here, to see how the flickr connection works. This is Sofia's first pet, an as yet unnamed fish that currently goes by "pishy", as in "pishy food" and "pishy eat?" Any suggestions for names?

Well, so I've got a blog. Hope I can keep up with this and make it worthwhile. I'll try to get some pictures of the kids up here to start things out...
